Bozal is a possible extinct Spanish-based creole language that may have been a mixture of Spanish and Congolese, with Portuguese influences. Attestation is insufficient to indicate whether Bozal Spanish was ever a single, coherent or stable language, or if the term merely referred to any idiolect of Spanish that included African elements.
Bozal Spanish was spoken by African slaves in Puerto Rico and Cuba and other areas of South and Central America from the 1600s up until its possible extinction at around 1850. Although Bozal Spanish is extinct as a language, its influence still exists. For instance, many Kongo words are found in the lexicon of the Puerto Rican dialect of Spanish. [wikipedia]
The remix is manifestation of love, complicity and common madness. Adaptation, revisitation, artistry. A unlimited connection. Original piece by gip released on Conspiratio compilation, now remixed by Flavio G. Rivero, Vela, Vate, Zoran and In Vitro.
This year La bèl will turn 5 years old and we wanted to celebrate its birthday by publishing a La bèl compilation with all the artists that collaborated with us during these years. The idea is to ask each one of their for a “pop” track, leaving complete freedom to their personal interpretation of this word. We think this would be a nice idea, since hardly any of their works within the ‘pop’ scene. “La bèl pop” (fifth anniversary compilation) is the final outcome of this experiment. This compilation is published to coincide with the first Netlabel Day.

Inspired by a bout of nostalgia, Jan Strach dove into his archive of a few dozens cassette tapes full of songs recorded between ages of 16-20. After digging through a few hundred tunes, he selected the most interesting to present to you, dear listeners. From regular songs with acoustic guitar in the style of early poj.wlkp, through experiments with two cassette players, casio-created ambient, sampled rock tunes and mandolin instrumentals, Jan Strach shows creations, in perspective maybe sometimes naive, but always honest, authentic and melodically interesting.
