Grabbed this great mash up from one of my favourite places of the moment, CRASHROOTS.

I only realized today after a few months of being in touch with one of the guys who runs it , Samim, that it’s the same SAMIM who was responsible for a track that, IMHO,  changed the face of Tech-House and introduced CUMBIA to the clubbing masses – “HEATER”.

Man I thought it was just another guy calling himself Samim and had no idea it was THE SAMIM hahahaha…

Anyway, after establishing that fact, I sent him over a nice little message paying him my RESPEK!!!  and apologising for my oversight!

Plus he tweeted RIVA STARR of all people about our Sexxy Saturday Cumbia post last Saturday:-)) http://topsy.com/tb/bit.ly/76XEG Nice one Samim 😉

I’m telling you I  should be thrown into jail for at least 5 continuous life sentences cause I have serially murdered the f*** outta that “Heater” track in my DJ sets.  WHY? cause it NEVER EVER fails to deliver on the dancefloor!!!

Anyway, the dude did this fantastic mashup which contains samples from Busta Rhymes Ft. Ron Browz – Arab Money (Instrumental) (19) and Oliver $ ft. Deize Tigrona “Ta Com Medo De Mim” (Voc Mix) (17), released on Funk Mundial #7).

Check it out, I love it….

MY PREDICTION:

A second wave of the Arabic Club Beats Revolution is on it’s way (and I might just have an instrumental part to play in that).

  1. curious to hear about that, and not the average belly dance techno or lounge ‘n’ dub old fashioned trip hop in an arab style… i’m still quite satisfied with some original gnawa or 12/8 time chaabi!! for the latter check out 2 mindblowing compilations by dj chemssy called maroc paradise 1&2 available thru itunes!
    we need more 12/8 on the dancefloor, producers! after the butts high backwards on kuduro, now the belly straight forward and the nuts low on chaabi!
