Who could have predicted that? UK producer genius Four Tet has teamed up with Hyperdub´s grime commissioned Terror Danjah for a new 12″ on Text Records. Both Tunes, “Killer” and “Nasty”, are characterized by rough and heavy basslines and smooth but unruly percussions. They should collaborate more often. Stream the tunes in full below.
Our beloved Rockwell did a nice Drum & Bass-Remix of “Hey Now” by the hyped and Brit Award nominated Indie-Band London Grammar.
Clap Clap is a new project by the italian Jazz player C. Crisci aka Digi G´Alessio aka Pippo Raudo. His new EP Tambacounda is full of of progressive and hallucinogen dance music. Focused on african tribe samples he created a special music for the global freak out.
The first track “Elon Mentana” first got me with the tropical vibes, but then i got lost with too much jazzy sounds. “Black” and “White Magic” are hypnotizing future tribe food. And “Kaluma” is really killing it!
Release 24.02.2014 on Black Acre Records
People try to get the most profit for themselves since day one. This behavior caused a lot of bloody actions and wired alliances in human history. You´ll also find people fighting for their rights and freedom, not only for food.
A small group of campesinos came out of the Mexican jungle 20 years ago to say “No!” with weapons in their hand. The president Carlos Salinas de Gortari just signed a contract for a neoliberal market between Mexico, Canada and the USA. He also sent 12.000 soldiers to fight back against the Zapatista’s. They had known that they could not win the battle but they risked their life’s for a dramatical sign against exploitation.
These guerilleros inspired many people to stand up against corruption, ecocide and mischievous way of governments worldwide. It is not only about remembering great revolutionary people, it is about a situation that is getting worse more and more. And it is about to say “Esta tierra no esta a la venta” ( This land is not for sale) – this movement is also the title of the tune Asian Dub Foundation and Indigenous Resistance produced for the “20 years EZLN” Compilation released by Rebel Sound and Latino Resiste.

If you are into deep Moombahton, slow Latin influenced Techno, or just good music you have to know DJ Sabo and his label Sol Selectas. I met DJ Sabo the first time on a festival in Germany and the second time in Washington DC , where i did an interview with him and Dave Nada for the German print version of the Headliner Mag and later on we had a very funny party at U Hall with Sazon Booya (…) and the whole family because it was Moombahton Massive and DJ Sabo´s Birthday.
On 1st October 2006 he started his label Sol Selectas with the little bootleg you see as a picture. Since then he released 10 vinyls on his former “vinyl only” label featuring artists like Balkan Beat Box, Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra and Pacha Massive. In 2010 the label went digital, and has since released 14 EPs of Afro-Latin House and Moombahton for sale, as well as 7 Moombahton only compilations for FREE download. In 2012 the label began releasing vinyl only bootlegs again, under the series titled “Moombah Fiesta”. For all of you who missed the very limited black gold he just released Moombah Fiesta 1 & 2 for free!
