MIDWEEK MIXXXTAPES: ESHONE, DJ MPULA, SOL RISING

This week: EshOne providea all the wonky latin bass you never knew you needed, DJ Mpula takes us on a mini Kuduro excursion and Sol Rising shoots us into space on a psy-global-bass ride…

EshOne

EshOne posted this mix of his own productions on the Moombah FB group, promising some moombahtonised versions in the pipeline, but dude, there’s no need, you’re already blazing a trail here. Wonky 140 latin bass, heavier on the latin for the first half of the mix, then heavier on the wonky from then on. The tune at around 33.50 is sinister as fuck. You know you need these tunes so click the ‘buy’ link on the player to grab some of them from Beatport.

DJ ZHAO

phpr5EUu6

Me and Leo are always getting into arguments on FB mainly about our differences of opinion on various types of musics but we agree on one thing, we’re both consummate cosmopolitans in our music tastes and outlook on life.

Leo’s one of those intellectual dj’s, he likes to think music and that can sometimes result in some mind-expanding mash ups/remixes and mixes.

Check out these niceties 🙂

AWESOME AKWAABA MUSIC KUDURO MIX

akwaaba sem transporte

Just got sent this AWESOME mix by Ben who runs Akwaaba Music, it’s a promo for the SEM TRANSPORTE album.

I’ve been asked to do a promo mix too by Ben for an Akwaaba Podcast and that’s been done and is kind of like a MINI-MIX of every track from that album.  It is being mastered by my homie, Hipi Duki and so it’s coming soon.

But man, I’m a little worried now after hearing this one…:-)

Here’s what Ben says:

Lisbon, Portugal’s own DJ Mpula, host of the Radio Fazuma show, connects with the Akwaaba team to revisit the Angolan gems collected on Akwaaba Sem Transporte. Adding a dash of his own potent production, this mix is sure to get your body in motion. And sure to give Angolan kuduro new means of transportation, directly to your ears.
