Jokers of the Scene “Pre Party Jamz 68” MIxtape November 2009
This mix was done back in November of ’09 for Nicky Digital. http://nickydigital.com/

On the general topic of Third World technology, I’ve been meaning to mention this site Afrigadget
on here for a while. If Ghetto Palms is an mp3 player or a pirate microstation, this thing is a 3-D fabricator of actual, factual ghettotech. Contains everything you need to know to build your own seaworthy craft out of recycled PET from plastic bottles and jellies sandals, a single-seater helicopter from the chassis of a VW bug or to convert cow-dung into usable fuel for your taxi-bike.
Yes there are some goofy-ass hats made from beer bottles on there too. And yes you could read it as a slightly condescending look at the quaint contraptions of African inventors—the kind of “oh shit!” meme that gets forwarded around the internet and then finally ends up on Tosh.O or Vice TV. OR you could read it as a very necessary survival manual for the 21st century.
If you’re taking shantytown engineering for a joke, you probably need to watch this documentary
on the Coconut Revolution
in the south pacific—a gang of Solomon Islanders
who set off a war of independence from Papua New Guinea, Australia and the Mining Company that was out to fuck them for their natural resources. In a nutshell to break the blockade enforced by the Papuan army, they had to run their gunboats on fuel made out of coconut oil—and invented a new kind of bio-diesel in the process.
Not to give away the end or anything, but they won.
