Pupu Mix Tracklist Revealed

Thanks to everyone who played and downloaded the Aloha Got Soul x Fitted Pupu Mix, a free appetizer mixtape packed with 30 minutes of Hawaiian funk, soul, and rare groove.

Many of you have been wondering about the Pupu Mix tracklist. To be honest, I thought I might keep it a mystery for a while…

Why? As niche as this blog is—Hawaiian funk and soul from the 70s and 80s is pretty obscure, after all—and as much as I doubt more than a few people a day will start Googling “rare Hawaiian funk music”, the digger/collector in me wants to keep all the good stuff to myself.

It’s like having a secret stash of gems that satiate my desire to cherish unique, unknown objects of this world. [insert evil snickering here]

But to hell with that. Each musician on the Pupu Mix deserves recognition, and hiding the tracklist from you would be a disservice to these artists. So here it is!

  1. All the talk about promoting the musicians, then not even include their names on these mixtapes? Did any of the artists (or their labels) give clearance to use the music? No credit, no royalties, seems like a bad way to treat heroes and “promote” them.
