STEREOTYP

Ok not strictly Afrikaan but Barefoot is HEAVILY influenced  by Afrikaana rhythms.  Here’s 2 new cutz from Austria’s Barefoot creator.

The first one is South American vocally but with a deep Afrikaana influenced percussive underpinning!

The second one is less to my tastes and is a bit more in the commercial RnB/Soul category but the Afrikaana influence is ever present!

AKWAABA MUSIC

Akwaaba are stretching the musical spectrum for us this month.

They’re proud to share with you a great album by Kenya’s Just A Band, who are immensely popular at home, where they’ve been pushing their new breed of electro pop.

When you first listen to their album, “82”, you might think you’re listening to a new act from the extended Versailles family, home to Daft Punk, Air and Phoenix.

But this is 100% pure Nairobi flavor!!

Options…

Get the album in iTunes

MAASTO RECORDS

Maasto Records is not Britney’s record label BUT a Finnish urban reggae and dancehall production company founded by musicians / producers Emil and Fellow M.

Apart from producing tight riddims, Maasto cherishes a multicultural society through acknowledging and blending different musical traditions from around the world.

So here’s a couple of tracks, an Electro Soca one to start with and a brilliant Reggae version of Britney’s “Womanizer”

…..shame…Britney almost became family…

KMC – Am Not Drunk (Emil Remix) by Maasto Records

Britney Spears – Breaktime Womanizer (Maasto Refix) by Maasto Records

POLLINATE RECORDS

They’re back with the next instalment in our boys excellent IBITHI series and here’s what they say:

So we like to finish on a bang and this package is blessed by the spirit of Shaka Zulu…DJ ammunition of the highest calibre that’ll take any dancefloor by surprise…Are you ready?
IBHITHI 5

You might think we’re mad giving this tune away for free. It’s massive. We’re a bunch of loved up ravers at Pollinate HQ and we got a lot of love to give.
The vocal will melt the most hardened souls and is essential for anybody who has ever liked house music in the past 20 years.

Ibhithi Five by Jumping Back Slash

IBHITHI 6

This track is so hot we’ve gone through three computers trying to upload it… bursting at the seems with melancholic synths, driving beats and tribal grunts, it’s like Kraftwerk recording with foil coated stones in the Kalahari desert, we couldn’t finish on a finer note…
