This week I traded places with Radio 1’s other Saturday morning DJ, Jarda Dušek, and maybe it was the nice weather or the different slot, but I played a lot less Latin music than usual this week. It also helps that there’s so much good music being made these days 🙂

Standout tracks this week came from Parov Stelar, whose “La Fete” is a real stomper:

Raphael Saadiq’s “Stone Rollin'” is also great, and I loved the track featuring Little Dragon, “Just Don’t:”

Speaking of Little Dragon, while we wait for the release of their new album, Ritual Union, I played this track, “Wildfire” by SBTRKT featuring Little Dragon and then remixed by Drake:

I also reached into the archives to find the Mary Jane Girls:

But by far the coolest track and coolest video this week comes from Curitiba, Brazil. The group is called “A Banda Mais Bonita Da Cidade” and the track is “Oração:”

The entire setlist is here as a Google Spreadsheet.
