Episode #19

on with the series with a man representing a trio, sort of like their front man joining me on this two plus hour sound-scape. it stroked me some time ago when i listened to him and his clan spinning "unheard of" house music at a local gig. as i found out they were banging out funk records in such a tempo, with such a style, it sounded like house! now that was unique, so much i had to have them on the show.


Bomba Energia Soundsystem started out on 2005 between two very good friends with completely different music preferences. Rusty Brown can be described as the radical of the duo since he is much closer to more electronic types of music such as acid house, electro disco, early Chicago house as well as nu disco, 70's boogie, and 80's electro. on the other hand Antoine, the eldest with musical preferences varying from new wave and rock'n' roll to native African, Caribbean rock, kraut and 60's swings.
after three years of 
live performances on VM radio shows another very important member was added to the team Anthony K. being the youngest of them all didn't play a part at all since he adapted his style easily playing deep Afro beat, Latin and managed to deliver a very unique black sound. 
when those three friends met and performed a live set they created a very unique musical experience through their different
musical influences, an explosive highly energetic feeling, the Bomba Energia Soundsystem was formed.

we're coming to a close  for the season as summer is just around the corner. keep your eyes peeled for a couple of special mixes to conclude the third season of the Blackball Show. stay tuned..
