We don’t normally post many mash-ups here but this is a good one delivered by some mysterious figure from the deepest, darkest depths of the Balkans who goes by the name of August Oktobar.
It’s a mash-up of the awesome Krafterk track “The Model” featuring the vocals of Šemsa Suljaković, a famous Bosnian folk artist. When the Yugoslav Wars started in the early 1990s, Šemsa held concerts throughout Europe and the United States to raise money for the Bosnian people.
Crazy, energetic new track & Apocalyptic video by Gato Preto featuring Edu K, both of whom have appeared on Generation Bass Digital in the recent past.
“The word “Barulho” is translated into “Noise” in english. The songs message is “Make Noise”, Jump around and wild out!!!
Hard african Kuduro rhythms meet Punk Guitars, portugese Raps and Electro Bleeps – Africa meets Europe meets Brazil!! Sounds crazy?!? Yes it is…
Gato Preto, the energetic duo with their roots in Ghana,Portugal and Mozambique team up with a true brazilian music legend Edu K. Hes the lead singer of the famous band Defalla and is known for his Bailefunk hit “Popozuda” released on MAN Recordings.The mixture of these different backgrounds in music show that creativity has no limits once you start to create.
Been away for a few weeks, can’t say where as it’s a bit of a secret, hence the lack of posts.
Anyhow, here’s a woman after my own heart, she does all her mixes live on old-school CDJ100s and she has played warm-up sets for ariel pink, dan bodan, cornerboy and many others. She’s from Leipzig, Germany and I find her Supercute Mixtape series super-interesting and embodies some superb mixing amongst the sea of dull and boring mixes you usually hear on the interwebs. Saying all of that, taste is subjective and I’ve got pretty high demands!
This is Volume 2 of that series, it’s blindin’ and Supercute!!!

Slip Thru Your Hand – SO SO IN LUV
Released two weeks ago on Blaq Records, this bomb assembled by Mokujinis going to blow some crates and dancefloors. A loud beat, a grimy bass and a voice with an evil inspiration, it’s dark, it’s an outburst of anger ! A small EP with three tracks, an amazing intro and two Opusblending strong tech and future garage.
This Opus comes as a name-your-price download, so there’s little reason not to get it !
Mokujin does it once again with his futuristic vision on club music, his unique approach to underground culture, always gold just like dawn.
Blaqnet is the rebellious young sister of Blaq Records / Pantamuzik, it is the punk renegade black sheep of the family, always walking the thin line where experimental meets club music, where techno meets ambient-noise, where breaks meet future garage and phantom rave within a unique convergence of artists from around the world, always stepping outside the trends with a DIY attitude showing her love for the underground with free releases for your downloading pleasure.
Blaq Records is a transnational label, based in Mexico but with artists from Iceland and Germany, the talents sheltered in this label have no frontier.
About 5 years ago, after witnessing Omar Souleyman live and meeting the great man, I had a convo with Drvg Cvltvre about doing some Techno Dabke remixes of his material and his label at the time, Sublime Frequencies were up for it too. But we never got around to it.
Some years later, he’s worked with Bjork and has been produced by Four Tet and now 2 of my favourite electronic producers in the entire universe, the unique and amazing Modeselektor.
Modeselektor haven’t been too adventurous with this new production, keeping to familiar Souleyman territory, was hoping for a far more darker electronic vibe along the lines of their material but it’s all cool, it’s such a great and epic track anyway.
Brilliant stuff and let the Arabic renaissance continue.
Modeselektor are no strangers to Transnational vibes themselves as this great and classic track testifies, which I snuck on Arabtronix Volume 3:
Feeling this, makes a change, Heavy Orienal Stoner Rock! Luv that “Wedding” track!
CAMEL DRIVER is a three piece instrumental rock band from Kiel/Germany. They combine finest desert rock sounds with rawmetal influences and fine-tuned/hot oriental jazz parts.
