Post #18: Vinyl Factory Mix #68: Israeli Groove by Fortuna Records – From Tel-Aviv with love

Eyh, Shalom to you !

Following my latest post, here is a mix from Fortuna Records out of Tel-Aviv, Israel. This one has been comissioned by the great vinylfactory website, so let’s not spoil them. Head over here for more info and tracklist about the mix.

What I like in this mix is the fact that although I don’t understand a word of hebrew, I enjoy the music. Actually it is not only about the language, it is also about the era, the culture, the traditions, the history in which this music was produced, and that I don’t know at all. I mean, besides a a few Jewish friends, a holiday trip to Israel a couple years ago and some history classes from college, well, I am rather a complete stranger to all of this. But I absolutely loved the mix.

To put it simply, what you are about to listen is an hour of israeli tunes mainly produced in the 60’s and 70’s. And you are going to love it. Highlights for me include the Aris San track (a Fortuna release), ‘Shine Again’ from Kutiman (the man behind the Thru-You videos) and the closing track from Arik Einstein, a stunning production.

Make sure you check out Fortuna Records and their releases because they are all ace !

Until next time,

Cheers,

Alex
