Ahead of our world party this Saturday 23 November, Invisible City Sound System present the third and final instalment of their Possibility Of An Island mix series. This collection of dance floor calypso, deep island soul and afro-boogie is a sample of what the Toronto-based DJ duo and label heads will be serving Goodgod alongside Awesome Tapes From Africa and Tako. Don’t miss experiencing this in real life (they’re also co-headlining Red Bull Music Academy’s Melbourne Music Week closing party on Sunday).
Having just reissued Disco Illusion, the Trinidad holy grail from producer Stephen Encinas, Gary and Brandon use this as an avenue to preview some of their forthcoming Invisible City Editions. All officially licensed directly from the artists. No filthy bootleg bullshit!

Noise In My Head present a triple bill of the world’s finest music archaeologists – Awesome Tapes From Africa (New York), Invisible City Sound System (Toronto) and one of our favourite DJs Tako (Amsterdam). This afro-boogie-disco dream team comes together for a once in a lifetime club experience.
Cult blog and label Awesome Tapes From Africa has accumulated and shared 100s of rare African cassettes. Preserving material that is far from the continent’s typically known funk, its mastermind Brian Shimkovitz’s unparalleled DJ sets uncover everything from 80s stadium pop to low tech hip hop and drum n bass divas. If you’re chasing the “real” sound of Africa, this is your ultimate destination.
After several trips to Trinidad, DJ/record label unit Invisible City Sound System lead an international curiosity in dancefloor calypso and tropical disco. Also heavy on the afro tip, they’ve reissued lost masterpieces from Witch, Michael Boothman & Stephen Encinas and promise to keep you grooving all night long.
A supreme DJ and the deepest of diggers, Tako is continuously at the coalface of discovery, lapping the European countryside on a quest for the most amazing music we’ve never heard. Championing his finds through his two labels Into The Light Records and Music From Memory, he’s also 1/2 of curated store RedlightRecords Amsterdam – a mecca of inspiration for DJs worldwide. Forget the big names, go straight to their source!
