Flash Strap Presents: Jungle Shadows (Mix #1)


On the one-year anniversary of the first Grzimek Safari mix (give or take some days), here's a new adventurous musical excursion for this savage new year, already so darkly under way. Deep grotto jazz, exotica soul, jungle pop, and anthems for amphibious cars. Perfect for the tape deck in your Safarimobile, or the upholstered mahogany stereo in your Explorer's Room.

There will probably be a volume two next month if you like. Enjoy. Download Both Parts. Follow the links if you're curious. (Mediafire seems to feel that "part one" is in violation, weirdly enough, so I've swapped that link over to Wupload for your downloading pleasureAND WUPLOAD IS GONE so I've just gone and put it on rapidshare.)

*This mix has been included in the esteemed Doug Schulkind's new edition of Mining the Audio Motherlode, focusing on blog mixes. Check it out, there's more great great mixes from the foggy depths of the blog bog.

Thanks much, been soundtracking giant open windows and long coastal drives in shitty trucks. Where can I find the Lee Jung Hwa/Shin Joong Hyun stuff?

Bit late to this one, but loving it. Inspired selection Flash. A real winner. Can't get enough of Michael Angelo's 'Nubian Queen'. Do you have a copy of his (1977?) Guinn LP you could share? I only have his Nubian Queen EP and would love to hear more of his stuff. Riz.

Flash Strap said...

Riz- I love that EP (Sorceror's Delight is quite wonderful as well) but the LP doesn't do much for me at all. I don't have a copy to up at the moment but I would hazard a guess that it's findable out there. Best of luck and thanks for dropping a kind word.

Riz said...

Thanks Flash. Agree Sorceror's Delight is damn lovely too. I searched again and did found the LP this time. I see what you mean, not quite the giddy heights of the EP. Shame. Such promise. At least I have that Eddie Callahan number now to keep me enthralled for the time being. Oh and 'Seabird'. Riz
