MADURO BELLYSTEP

php1Wh1VE

MADURO

It’s a great honour and pleasure for me to do this post for a fantastic underground artist named MADURO.

This guy alongside Beats Antique and some others is hero-worshipped mainly by the Western school of Bellydance.  Whereas Hossam Ramzy is the current reigning King of traditional/Tribal Middle Eastern Bellydance.

Below, you can grab a few very tasty tracks comprised of some BELLYSTEP and also Gothic/Industrial Bellydance which have been released on his own label OCTOFOIL RECORDS.

Here’s some more info on the dude:

Hailing from the Washington DC area, the artist who calls himself Maduro blends textured dark world fusion electronic music with breakbeat and breakcore elements.

His work has been popularized by renowned belly dancers performing and teaching to his work around the world.  He has appeared on compilations with the likes of Amon Tobin, Bassnectar, Muslimgauze, Venetian Snares, Beirut, and Nouvelle Vague.

Talking about Maduro’s music, Bob Duskis, owner of the renowned San Francisco-based Six Degrees Records stated, “If you ever wondered what Trent Reznor might sound like if he incorporated global sounds into his musical palette, you may want to delve deeper into Maduro’s repertoire.”

Maduro’s 2008 album Siege has been regarded as a breakthrough production mixing live world instrumentation with breakcore progressions, bit reduction, and musique concrète. His follow on 2008 EP “Fin de Siecle” (or “End of the Century” in French) was recorded primarily with tracker programs using Thomas Edison phonograph cylinder samples from the early 1900s.

The 2009 release “Your Devices” with Boston-based Notecrusher appeared on BBC with its world dubstep tones and his forthcoming 2010 full-length release “Reveries” has been much anticipated. His sound embodies ethnic instrumentation with deconstruction and things carnivalesque.

A BELLYSTEP numba from his forthcoming album REVERIES, available on April 5th, check HERE for further info!

DOPE NU ZZK EP'S : Fauna & Lagartijeando

phpzkgAPI

ZZK Records is pleased to announce the digital releases of two EPs that push the ZZK Sound into new sonic territories.

1st up is Fauna‘s EP La Manita de Fauna with 4 exclusive instrumentals and 2 remixes by heavyweights and ZZK fam Poirier & Douster.

Turntable Lab
had this to say about La Manita de Fauna EP:

“Fauna is a crew of producers and MCs hailing from Mendoza, Argentina. At the forefront of the digital cumbia scene, Fauna describe their style as “Cumbia from the Jungle” and is characterized by the heavy bass sounds you’d normally associate with Baile Funk or even fidget house.

This EP opens with a remix by the ever-versatile Ghislain Porier(1). His remix of “Gauchito Gil” is an immediate banger, low bpms never sounded so fierce. Flip to the b-side for three instrumental originals(2,3,4) and you really get a sense of how original this music really is (Sounds like if you dropped a shipment of 90s era drum machines and synths in a gypsy colony and came back 10 years later to hear the results). Also includes a remix by Douster(5).”

Fauna – La Manita de Fauna EP by zzkrecords

Next up is Lagartijeando‘s debut EP – Neobailongo.

Lagartijeando pushes the label into new territories, using Cumbia as a starting point but meshing more roots and obscure sounds with South American rhythms like chacareras, huaynos, and vidalas, mixed with heavy bass and “hyper-active synth melodies” (SF Weekly)

Boomkat
said of Neobailongo:

Heavyweight plate of Nueva Cumbia Argentina and mutant Reggaeton styles from Lagartijeando on the awesome ZZK label. If you haven’t checked this label yet you really need to pay them some close attention. Their drops from Chancha Via Circuito, Fauna and Poirier are among some of the wildest dancefloor fusions we’ve heard in years and these six tracks from Lagartijeando commendably uphold that tradition.

The low-flying club missile ‘Neobailongo En El Club Sarmiento’ skims battys with darkside rave synths and tumbling carnival percussion at 100bpm, while the pacy ‘Zindud’ jacks mad accordians over ghetto-house beats ‘n bass and his remix of Doña Maria’s ‘El Pescador’ tears it up in extreme slo-motion. Anyone with a taste for raw, modern pan-global ghetto musics should be on this immediately!

AND would we leave you without a free track???

I know we did last time..sorry about that 🙂

Not this time though 🙂

SPACE DISCO!

phpb1uSrB

Seems to me like all things DISCO are making a  sort of comeback.

Not the biggest fan of the genre, not the commercial sort anyway, but I like some of the more spacey/experimental stuff which I try to incorporate in my Supperclub sets.

So here’s a bunch of tracks I’ve found with that kind of Spacey feel!

BANDISH PROJEKT

phpIT4c6n

ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BANDS IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOWW!

Lucky to be amongst only a handful of dj’s in the world to have this track amongst Liquid Stranger, Excision and of course Bandish.  Made it’s first ever UK debut last Saturday night and of course it KILLED IT!!!

I’ve been xcited about the release of the original version of this track for quite a while now.  I’m a trusted insider in the Bandish camp and their Chief Adviser and so I’ve been privy to it for at least 6 months.

I have found it VERY HARD to contain my xcitement about it.

IMHO, this track is gonna catapult Bandish onto the world stage with great aplomb..just watch and see and mark my words!

EAST STEPPER

Xcellent refix by my homie who also supported Datsik in Brum recently with his superb “Brothethood of Filth” group who made their worldwide debut that night!

Brotherhood of Filth consist of DJ Switch (DMC World Champ), The Doctor (Pure975) and our homie.  They are a live dubstep turntablist act. Using 4 decks 3 mixers 3 laptops and midi keyboard controllers to manipulate dubstep in it’s hardest form.

Man they creating a new sub-genre SCRATCH-STEP!

Here’s his great refix of Classic Borgore!

Really feel what this dude does.  We’ve covered him previously and I even stuck one of his tracks on Popstep II.

Different and unique, very unique and I love that…dark and mooody..and I love that…..very good production and sound…and I love that…..and totally unassuming and humble….and I love that too…what is there not to love about BASSADOR.…love him too!
