More about the music:

DJ Miles Cleret

Since launching Soundway Records in 2002 with Ghana Soundz (Afro-beat, Funk & Fusion in 70's Ghana) Miles Cleret has been driven on by an insatiable need to find unusual records to pepper his DJ sets with his collecting and research expeditions becoming increasingly numerous and far-reaching. Fuelled by the developing success of each chapter released by his fledgling label has taken him to Ethiopia, Benin, Ghana, Colombia, Nigeria, Panama, Trinidad, Kenya and Thailand. Although the label has it's roots in West Africa the scope has grown to include many other parts of the tropical belt with the aim of making available recordings that have in most cases never been available outside of their original countries and often not even there for over 30 years. With Cleret's? background in DJ culture and dance-music the label has garnered a reputation as a quality outlet of surprising and in many cases unusual sounds. Styles have included afro-beat, funk, highlife, ethio-jazz, molam, calypso, cumbia, champeta, biguine, latin-jazz and disco as well as many recordings that don't seem to fit into any genre which reflects Mile's eclectic dancefloor led DJ sets.

Vamanos

Since first hearing the bass-heavy sounds of local producers during extended trips through Latin America in 2004, Vamanos has been captivated by the progressive urban dance music of the southern hemisphere. Returning to his native London, he began writing Ghetto Bassquake which quickly became a critically acclaimed online destination for the hottest underground sounds from around the world, focussed especially on Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. As one of the key figures behind the much-loved, legendary London tropical night, Secousse subsequently reborn as Palm City Social, Vamanos's DJ sets are as unpredictable as they are riotous, leaving no ass unshaken. He has also played around the world in New York, Belgium, Geneva, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Lowlands Festival Netherlands, Bestival, Secret Garden party and most recently Ghetto Bassquake Sound System show at SXSW.
