Over the next twelve months this blog will document the recording of CASAMENA's latest project, a hip-hop, bata exploration with Michael Spiro and your blog keeper, Carlos Mena. I've recently decided to include all things CASAMENA here as well so you'll read about other projects as well.

IRAWO Vol. 1 - CASAMENA Winter 2006 Mix

This mix features 4 upcoming releases from the CASA OCHA label, a joint venture between CASAMENA and Osunlade. It was really hard for me to narrow it down to these 12, and I left some really dope jams out, so I suspect there will be another mix shortly. Enjoy! (78.8 MB)
