Baauer and RL Grime trapping fraternity kids
On a train going through the Czech Republic, random young Swedish travelers enthusiastically told me of their love for Trap music. Kids in Ho Chi Minh City are turning the f*** up to Trap. Vice magazine has made a documentary about Trap music and the ghetto streets from where it came.
Apologies that i failed to post about this earlier… been a hectic few weeks to say the least!

So that’s the first meme i’ve ever made, hope it goes “viral” 🙂 What do you think? GF thinks it’s too “polarizing”, but i think it’s kind of a necessary illustration of the false dichotomy.
Also, for the entirety of the month of October I will be touring in East Africa: mostly Kampala and Nairobi, playing at festivals and clubs, and working with local musicians. Super excited!!!
Expanding the boundaries of club music, CLUBLAB explores borderless poly-rhythms and infinite bass, and investigates the fragmented soul of the polymorphous planetary underground.
Fusion was as epic freaky fun as ever! (but this year seemed to feature even more music from the global south).
I’ve always loved Acid. Not only due to the squelchy palette of the misused TB303 being, for reasons i can not articulate (related to liking the smell of petroleum??), so endlessly delicious, sexy, and addictive, but also because Acid House and Acid Techno, ever since the beginning, have always been more overtly and unabashedly polyrhythmic than their bigger stylistic cousins.
Sorry about late notice but this is very important solidarity event for refugee rights in the very cool concert/club venue Zukunft am Ostkreuz. Bands start at 6pm, dinner for all (Ramadan fast break) at 9pm, And i play from 2am!

Mashup, an exhibition of artworks by contem- porary artists from Africa generated during the research and exhibition project Mashup the Archive at Iwalewahaus in Bayreuth, Germany.
It’s nice to get booked for the core of what i do. Will be playing alongside many very talented artists such as Miss Eve, Otieno Gomba, Délio Jasse, Raphael Kariuki, Nita., Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi, Simon Rittmeier, Kevo Stero, Pamela Sunstrum, and Uche Uzorka.
and last weekend Karnival was fun…
As I’m sure many of you have noticed, 99% of my uploads on SoundCloud have been hidden. This is because the price of an “unlimited account” has gone back up to 89 Euros a year, and i just can’t afford it at the moment.
It is bad timing as i have many finished mashups and edits i’ve been wanting to upload for quite some time, and was about to sit down and make time to do it. There are also several big big mixes coming soon, including Syrian Debkah, Classic Colombia, Acid Techno, and a beautiful Fusion 8.
If you would like access to all the older sounds again, and hear the new ones on SoundCloud which makes download possible, feel free to make a donation via the paypal button on the home page (top right), or just click HERE.
As soon as there is enough funds i will renew the subscription. Thanks.
Pre-Hispanic indigenous rhythm roots, influence from African sciences of the drum, Shamanic sounds from atop the Peruvian mountains and deep in the Amazonian jungle… These describe parts of this new electronic music known loosely as Tribal Guarachero. This mix comprises of mostly music from Mexico, where the original sound was born, with some tracks from Central, South, and North America, and Europe.
