I think today has to be one of the most momentous days in our short history.
We’ve brought you 3 exclusives and 2 of those are worldwide exclusives. Not from DJ Tom in your local city centre but by established, innovative, ground-breaking and world famous DJ’s!
So far today, we’ve had what I, DJ UMB, regards as one of the best mixes ever by the Bandish Projekt, a new Bassnectar download and now this, perhaps the first ever recorded Kuduro mix by a western DJ!!!
All that seems to be missing is a new Sonido Del Principe jam 🙂
All this, in the week of the first ever GENERATION BASS FESTIVAL in Tilburg, Holland, which kicks off this Friday through to Sunday!!
Man we know how to celebrate in style! I’m not there yet, I’ll be on my way this Thursday. I hope you can make it there too and if you do, do me 1 favour, come up and say Wassup!
Sorry to say all of the above on your post Monsieur Galliano 😉
Anyway, on to the main action here, Galliano sent me this mix through a few days ago and man it’s brilliant.
It’s NOT anything to do with his recent Kuduro Sound System material but is an old skool Kuduro classics mix and man it rocks.
He did this mix way back in 2005!!!
4 years later and we’ve only just started doing this sort of stuff. Hence my “justified” bigging up of Mr Galliano in previous posts and confirming his status as the GODFATHER OF KUDURO in the West.
It’s the FIRST ever Kuduro mix he did after his first visit to Angola in 2005. It’s one he did for pleasure and not for a commercial release. He says it’s old skool but that it’s still interesting to him.
He explains that when he played and recorded this in a live gig in France in a pub, the crowd were intrigued and did not quite understand it but felt seduced by it. He further adds that they asked him if it was Brazilian music!!!!
Man, even to this very day, people in the West still do not quite understand Kuduro yet, albeit, it has started to develop a small but growing following. However, in my mind it’s still perhaps 2-3 years ahead of it’s time now before it might catch on in a bigger way. Yet Fred was doing it 4 years ago and so that makes him around 8 years ahead of the game!
Man, I think it’s a really great mix cause I still love old skool Kuduro. So it’s a great honour for us to be the first to make this mix available.
Perhaps the first ever recorded Kuduro mix by a Westerner, now that’s HISTORICAL!
We did promise you loads of amazing exclusive stuff from Mr Galliano but the best is yet to come, Watch this space!
Man, WE and YOU are being spoilt rotten!
Limited to 100 downloads-7 days!
