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!
