about

Cover : Vianney Postic & Mawimbi

It has been four years since Mawimbi started building itself as a staple for all things tropical in the Paris music scene by curating nights, hosting radio shows and publishing records on their own imprint. Mawimbi is a cross-cultural journey, an afro-infused electronic sound that reaches far beyond its Paris hotbed: from Berlin to Pretoria, from Tokyo to Amsterdam, the Mawimbi crew has been building a community of afro-enthusiast DJs, diggers and producers.

In order to celebrate a community that now counts over 10,000 people, Mawimbi is publishing the first installment of a new compilation series called Radio Mawimbi. Named after their bi-monthly radio show on Rinse France, this series will focus on re-edits and remixes of rare, forgotten tropical gems. “Radio Mawimbi Volume 1” contains 7 edits by some of the very best tropical diggers in the game. Trinidadian soca, haitian kompa, mandinka funk and shangaan disco are all re-edited or remixed wih respect and a deep understanding of these grooves. Beware, curious ears, you’ve got a long night of dancing ahead.
