    GUEST MIX: Memorias del Subdesarrollo by Thur Deephrey

    Thur Deephrey took a trip to Cuba in late 2012 and put together a lovely mix full of Funk, Soul, Beat and sound from forgotten Cuban cinema. For the past few years he’s made experimental Jazz and psych-infused music that you can hear here. His Miles Davis tribute, Kind of Brew is excellent.

    Here’s what Deephrey has to say:

    After staying in Cuba for a while in late 2012, I came back to the beloved studio with all kinds of dirty, dusty vinyl and tapes and went to work… first thing that came about is this mind-bending course through the reaches of Cuban Jazz, psychedelic, folk and funk-rock from the last century, laced with beats and episodes from long lost Cuban cinematography all rolled into one trip. The album is coming summer 2013.
    __
    The trip features old Cuban film tapes I’ve found in Havana… it’s named after the movie “Memorias del Subdesarrollo” directed by Tom Gutierrez Alea (1968) and contains excerpts from the cuban films:
    “Soy Cuba” by Mikhail Kalatozov (1964)
    “Hasta La Victoria Siempre” by Santiago Álvarez (1967)
    “79 Primaveras” by Santiago Álvarez (1969)
    “El Tigre Salto Y Mato, Pero Morira… Morira…” by Santiago Álvarez (1973)
    It also features real talk from heavyweight cinematic visitors and residents of Havana like Michaeal and Fredo Corleone (Godfather 2) and Tony Montana (Scarface).”

  • Nuevas Incorporaciones

    I added new titles to the 33 and 45 sections. Vincente Rojas’ A Las 2 a.m. reminds me of the easy soundtrack vibes from Raul Gomez’s funky Instrumental. The Leonor Zamora 45 (airplane pic sleeve) contains a nice beat track. Sound coming soon.
