Pure Groove: Pacific Origin

Today

«Electronica, ragga, house, rhythm and blues, dance, all contemporary musical movements influence the musicians of the Pacific Islands…» This groovy European compilation assembles twelve tracks by bands and djs from Oceania merging modern Western and Caribbean influences with the traditional music of their homelands, mostly with good results. Featuring artists from Hawaii (Tony C, O-Shen), Fiji Islands (Black Rose), French Polynesia (Fenua, Electro Mana, Enzo), Australia (D.I.G.), New Caledonia (Poin Mou Dja, Edou, Tim, Triban Klan) and Solomon Islands (Toxie).

«Il existe de très nombreuses analogies entre les peuples des Caraïbes et des Iles Pacifiques. Si le reggae a suscité de nombreuses vocations dans le monde, c'est peut-être ici que cette musique a été la plus proche de l'esprit jamaïcain, qu'elle a atteint le plus d'authenticité en véhiculant autant de détresses et d'espoirs. Les groupes sélectionnés pour cet album donnent à penser que le reggae aurait pu naître dans les nombreux archipels de la zone pacifique dont sont originaires tous les groupes.» (LeLoupDuFaubourg)
