Angola, like Brazil, is an endless source of inspiration. Currently one of the hotbeds for global musical innovations with genres such as kuduro, tarraxo or angolan rap, the South West African country has also a rich history of modernist architecture that is largely unknown in the Northern hemisphere.

Now German publisher Steidl verlag, in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut of Angola, released the book “Angola Cinemas” by Walter Fernandes, that honors the fantastic, unique and little-known architecture of movie theaters in Angola, built in the decades before the end of Portuguese colonial rule in 1975.

Visiting the cinema was a communal act—it was a crucible where young met old, where people fell in love and where liberation from colonialism was a feasible option. Examining the architectural history of these buildings, Walter Fernandes’s photographs are documents of urban organization in the twentieth century, and of the changing mentalities of a society living within the possibility of its foreseen independence. What has changed since then, and what is the future of these urban cathedrals? Angola Cinemas poses such questions, both preserving these architectonic treasures and reflecting on their cultural, social and affective heritage.

THE CLERK FT. MILANGELES "LA DANZA EP"

Inspired by the Henri Matisse painting, “The Fabulous Mariachi Trio From Italy”, The Clerk and Milangeles are back in the game with a collaboraition EP of two tracks. Named “La Danza”, the EP shows the Italoo whizzkid´s passion for experimental new global sounds in a mid tempo BPM mode.

Like in the Matisse painting, there are various subjects naked, holding hands, proceeding into a whirling circle while creating a sinewave united. The Clerk and Milangeles succeeded to recreate a similar, sonic move with their collaboration. It´s neither tropical bass nor cumbia, no afro house nor Chicago juke, no moombathon or trap but just a very individualstic approach to an electronic dance music with a non-place, global appeal.

BERT ON BEATS - WEDDING (FREE DL)

Call it a Bert On Friday if you wish, our Estonian bass don Bert On Beats will be giving away a free banger choon on every first Friday of the month! Bert´s going to kick the debut off a little earlier this time with “Wedding”. It´s a track for all you guys diggin’ these over amplified double-reed mijwiz and oud sounds, heavy beats, handclaps with compelling vocal cuts and some low end niceness.

Those who take the bride and groom as enemies won’t be forgiven! :) this is Dabke influenced beats from north side of the globe. Call it a bassed up Omar Souleyman for the club.
