MUTANT2 – 30 August

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 21.29.59

Industrial nightmares and Shamanic visions collide in the club. Ancestral voices bleed through grids of the city. Diasporic sounds and mutant rhythms transformed by migrant movement, shaped by history. Fragmented Psychotropic Bass pulsating through the deepest valleys and highest crests of your mind, in the kaleidoscopic center of the omni-verse.  RSVP on fb

NGOMA MIX 5 – Nomad Boogie

here is one for the boogie: classic and soulful grooves designed for more intimate spaces.

STREAM:  MIXCLOUD // DOWNLOAD SINGLE TRACK:  MEDIAFIRE

i made this mix for smaller and “normal” local bars and clubs: really tried to make something both for the general public, meaning anyone from any walk of life, as well as the music heads. the ideal is a CD that almost any bar anywhere in the world can pop in their stereo at any given night and have people nod their heads, tap their feet, and maybe even get a little jiggy. how close the actual product ended up being to this ideal is yet to be tested, as well as my thesis that one does not have to succumb to lowest common denominators to appeal to everyone. (we will see, i have already started giving these out to local establishments in berlin)

NGOMA MIX 4

Continuing from NGOMA 1, this is an excursion into 100 BPM global urban bass music.

Heavy on both classic and modern Kwaito: Arthur Mafokate’s 1993 track Oyi Oyi,  TKZEE with their Kwaito offshoot style known as Guz, and the immense talent that was Mawillies (RIP), whose effortlessly powerful voice graces the track GaGu.

Also tunes from other parts of Africa: the AshThomas project and Marvelous Benji from Nigeria, DJ Rams from in Angola, and Emmanuel Jal, the Sudanese singer with the crazy personal history.

Always great to find one great Bhangra tune on too many an album of otherwise generic numbers and a little taste of classic cumbia gold. A few all time Dancehall bangers and reggaeton, oh how i wish they still made them like El General did in Panama back in the early 90s. (all of these sounds need their own NGOMA volume, yes i do realize.  thanks:)
