NOSTALGIA 77 at Afro Funké (+ KCRW mixes)

In honor of the fact that we're having NOSTALGIA 77 play at Afro Funké tonight, here's the link to two exclusive mixes he prepared for the radio show:

Nostalgia 77 - "Hope Suite" (Dir: Steve Glashier)

FREE DOWNLOAD: "Positive Force" from the new album "Smile" by Ben's (N77's) new project SKELETONS on his IMPOSSIBLE ARK label. More on the project (from their blog):
“Skeletons is a made up band.  I kid you not - it doesn’t exist. These musicians never stood in the studio together, they just passed through my house or left some scraps of sound behind after sessions we were working on…  “Some of the music here started life as commissions for a library music company, pastiches and forgeries paid for by the current vogue for a certain style of African jazz. Once I’d done a few though I couldn’t stop, it was my default preoccupation, something for me once I’d finished working on other people’s albums.  It was relaxation, something that didn’t matter whether it worked or not. The whole LP was made like that, done in the time between recording jobs. “To me the whole thing has been a self indulgent forgery, an act of mindless fun. If it sounds good then it’s because I just enjoyed the music and enjoyed myself.”
