J-Wow & Diamond Bass
J-wow=Jeez, wow, lolz..what can you say!!
Here’s an official remix give-away by a boy we introduced to the world, DIAMOND BASS!!!
Here he is remixing for the TOP BRASS in the scene!!
Jeez, wow, again, we’re very proud of him!
Watch out for his forthcoming releases on Buraka Som Sistema’s Echufada label, later this year/early next year and also on the Generation Bass label too
I got this track of the album Bembé by Milton Cardona. XANGO
The 13th Tribe
KILLA! KILLA! KILLA!
Quite possibly the best thing I’ve heard from these dudes, this is TOP, TOP NOTCH!
African Dancehall from mc Safa (Guinee/Madrid) Flows in French, Spanish + Fulani.
Old track here from Simbad but as they say “Oldie” = “Goldie”..lolz
An old gem from back in the days , has rocked many Co-op sessions & dancefloors worlwide (the Afronaut original is a killer too !!!) & only got released on CD but hence its the Notting Hill Carnival i might as well share it … Vocals recorded in Puerto Rico 😉
Gotta say when I heard the intro to this, I almost soiled my underwear
Shame it does not quite live up to that beginning but with a bit more work on the middle section and a lot less stuttering, this has potential 2 become a CULT classic!
Most Xcellent work here, as the title says, Big Choons Buddy, now go and tell yer Momma!
Man, this is a GLORIOUS remix and from one of the least expected producers, Chris Coco.
The dude is hyper talented and has been on the scene for years, notable for his down-tempo and Balaeric style, but I never expected to hear something like this from him.
Huge, pleasant surprise!
Man, I’m a SUCKER for HANDCLAPS and this is HANDCLAP HEAVEN!
Bristling with bass and alive with house, garage and electro influences, this latest release from Manchester’s HeavyFeet is shaping up to be one of this Autumn’s brightest releases. With support from some of the biggest names in dance music, including Skream, Drop The Lime, Crookers, Todd Terry and AC Slater, and excited praise from the music press, this four-track EP demands your attention.
Dj support always makes me piss my pants with laughter, man I can’t help it, & I’m really surprised Laurent Garnier has not commented on this one.
And the DJ mix is here:
01 HeavyFeet – Music High [Plant Music]
02 Heavyfeet ft. Virus Syndicate – I Spy… (Club Dub) [Stamp! Beats]
03 HeavyFeet – For The Pain [Plant Music]
04 The Glass – Four Four Letter (HeavyFeet Remix) [Plant Music]
05 HeavyFeet – Got To Have You [Plant Music]
06 HeavyFeet ft. Kovas – We Came To Party (Club Mix) [Stamp! Beats]
07 Sam Young ft. Aphletik – Hee (HeavyFeet Remix) [Plant Music]
08 HeavyFeet – Here We Go [Plant Music]
09 HeavyFeet – Hit That [CDR]
10 HeavyFeet ft. Jenna G – War (Club Mix) [Stamp! Beats]
11 HeavyFeet ft. Bubbz – Young & Dumb (Club Dub) [Stamp! Beats]
12 Zinc ft. Nolay – Killa Sound (HeavyFeet Remix) [Bingo Bass]
‘This year, HeavyFeet’s musical direction saw them focus away from the dancefloor, and work with vocalists for more song-based productions. As good as these excursions have been all kudos to Plant Music who have convinced the Mancunian duo to drop a dancefloor EP of immense proportion!! Four huge tunes, with garage and electro influence will no doubt return HeavyFeet back to the top of dancefloor pile!! 10/10. IDJ Magazine (PJ)’
FEEDBACK FROM DJS:
“Gonna play ‘For The Pain’ for sure!” – Crookers
“Heavyfeet are at the top of their game and still climbing! Great mixture of garage and house.” AC Slater
“This is proper new vibe house havoc” Drop The Lime
“Sick” 5/5 – Skream
“This is GOOOOD!” Todd Terry
“Here We Go again murders shit for me!” – Rico Tubbs
“Here we Go Again- love HeavyFeet. Another killer.” – Larry T
“Nice feel good tracks. ‘Here We Go Again’ is my favourite.” – Tom Findlay (Groove Armada)
Major Lazer & Mark Ronson
This is a GREAT remix!
Real, real shame it’s ruined by the constant reminder that Major Lazer remixed it. I mean man, how many times do you need to tell us dudes.
Just trying to be constructive but not that you need to give a f*** what I have to say..lolz..still a KILLA remix!
Amaaazing Tribal Guarachero numba, outta downloads and so you’ll have to ask him for a copy cause I can’t be arsed to upload it. Plus you can say hi, and you know, thank him for making it.
I’m gonna finish off with some Footwork influenced flavas.
Vince, did a big post on this stuff recently right here and so when you get a chance check it out, scroll down to the interviews section.
I know he’d been meaning to get it up much sooner, since earlier this year, but he did not get around to it until recently cause he was just sooo busy with the Gen Bass fest.
Gotta say, just like UK Funky last year, I’m yet to be convinced by it or maybe I just don’t get it and need to see it in action, to really get it.
I just find some of the production of the stuff coming direct from the source, Chicago, a little uneasy on the ear but the ideas are good.
However, I do find what Addison Groove has done to it more accessible to me and Matthew Hiscock kinda follows in the same direction.
“This new Hissy Fit release is two slices of atmospheric 808-heavy techno-funky strangeness a la Addison Groove or recent Ramadanman, with harmonised vocal stabs floating over top of echoey synths. The original keeps things bass-heavy while the Redux turns up the techno with swung 808 snares all over the shop.
And here’s Barefoot creator, Stereotyp, getting into the Footwork too!
Promo juke session cause i felt like it … footwrk it!
Man, can’t disagreee with that, my philosophy too!
