Waxist Selecta is Island Grown

Today we are blessed with a new mix from the Parisian Pied Piper of Tropical Sounds ~ Waxist Selecta!

Julien Minarro aka Waxist Selecta is a tireless champion of the Island sounds that have caught fire over the last few years. Having grown up on a small island paradise located between Madagascar & South Africa, he was immersed in the sun & sand vibrations that helped mold his musical tastes. "This unique experience has taught me a lot of things." he says, "among which the love of people from other cultures than mine & the love of music. As a consequence, it is no surprise that as a record collector I've been attracted by island music."

His Tropical Heatwave mix, "Island Grown", is like greeting old friends, as he has chosen a lot of my personal favorite tracks. It is a Tropical Bouillabaisse that brings together the flavors of the sea and spices of the islands in a hearty stew that will warm your bones and get you ready for a long night of dancing!

"The present mix is mostly made of rare disco & funk & soul joints recorded in the Caribbean in the 70s." Waxist explains. "I also choose to select 2 'creole' sung tracks from the French speaking Caribbean as I think they are another qualitative facet of that sounds. The mix ends up on an afro-funk sound from JM Tim & Foty."

You can find more WS sounds on his Soundcloud page.
