NYEGE NYEGE Festival Official Mix

____COVER_final_800

Nyege Nyege Festival in Jinja, Uganda, is about the infinite and timeless rhythmelodic traditions from the motherland and its myriad mutations around the globe, and their sometimes difficult to perceive but indivisible connection. It is my duty as rhythm ambassador to reveal the truth about these connections between ancient and future, between the so-called “East” and so-called “West”, in a visceral way on the dance floor; and it is what i have tried to do with this mix.

MUTANT 4 – Meta House

METAHOUSE

Evil twin of the last MUTANT mix of brightly hued, sun-kissed club music for endless summer nights, Meta House is heavy, narcotic. Including lots of deep techy tracks, some jacking, bassline, healthy dose of ghetto, a touch of shuffling, and material which may be in the category of “House Not House” — but as abstract or bassy as any part of it may be, i made sure that all selections are primarily, unmistakably House – all steady kicks and offbeat hi-hats.

To me many similarities exist between Molam and Cumbia: it is a music of the underclass, embedded in rural folk traditions stretching back decades and centuries; it has a mid tempo swing and a sensuous groove you can easily clap and move to; if reversioned for modern club sensibilities it would work wonders on the dance floor.
Yet is unlikely that Molam will enjoy a revival and become as popular with a western audience as happened with Cumbia in recent years, because South East Asian music have not historically circulated as much as Latin American music (of course due to no doubt a slew of political/economic reasons and not creative merit of the music itself).

 

Fusion Festival 2011 Video

when we started, Matchume just flew in from Portugal 2 hours before, and Congo from France the night before, and I had just played at Berghain the night before… so all 3 of us were running on zero to very little sleep. which might be reason that we forgot to bring a disc recorder to record off the board, so that’s why the camera stayed on the stage and didn’t move around this time, because it was attached to the sound board. also, the Camera man wanted to dance for the last hour, and put the camera down… which was too bad as that was the most hype hour: 3000 jumping and screaming.  But despite all this i’m still happy with the way it turned out.
