Cliktrips also enjoys late night techno parties, balearic rooftop hangs, weird weekenders, tropical sounds, trippy disco, and dancing ‘til dawn.

10 Years of Awesome Tapes From Africa

One of my favorite music blogs turned label, Awesome Tapes From Africa turns 10 this year! ATFA started out as a blog in 2006 when it’s founder Brian Shimkovitz needed a way to highlight and digitally share all the rad African music he was discovering amongst the cassette based music community in Africa. I’ve discovered countless African gems from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and more thanks to ATFA, and spend way too much time listening to their tunes and mixes on Soundcloud, especially their recent mix for Resident Advisor. 

Check out their “10 Years of Awesome Tapes From Africa” mix up now on Spotify.
