SERIOUSLY HOT JAM MIX

seriously-hot-jam

Seriously Hot Mix here from our boy Streamer taking in all of his recent remixes, edits and originals.

This mix travels from Africa to the Middle East and goes to some weird and interesting places in between. It also takes in some tracks from the recent “Walking with Camels Remixed” EP. Covers Voodoo, Gqom, Footwork, Afro House, Samba, Dubstep, Neurofunk and Arab Bass. So much quality in this.

Whilst you’re at it download some of the tracks that feature in the mix:

Streamer – Walking with Camels Remixed [Free for 24 Hours Only]

WWC REMIXED FINAL

We return with Streamer and a Remix EP focusing on his “Walking with Camels” EP which we released last Christmas. We loved that EP so much that we just needed a follow up and what better way than to get a bunch of our favourite producers to put a twist on the EP.

The original Walking with Camels sounds like a precious, classic and unmissable (they don’t make it like they used to) 70s recording featuring some tracks in the tricky measures of 6/8 and 5/8.

In parts, the EP sounded like the lost Middle Eastern Jazz recordings of Idris Mohammed, Byrd and M Jarre jamming together on a modern electronic Psychedelic Orchestral Dub tip… a sonic, cinematic Desert Wave soundtrack for an imaginary movie yet to be made – soundcloud.com/generation-bass-1/sets/streamer-walking-with-camels

For the Remixes EP, this world was turned upside down and inside out, deconstructed and reconstructed for the club environment. Most of the remixers opted for Last Sacrifice as the track to remix. It is a track that gets under your skin and refuses to leave and there never seems to be enough of it, always leaving you yearning for more

The 12 tracks on the Ep/Album feature an array of genre styles from current hot fave Gqom (Gome) through to 80’s Synthwave, Grime, Tribal, Vogue/Ballroom, Techno, Wobble, Neuro Funk, DnB, Acid, Jungle and Skweee.

1. Streamer – Walking With Camels (Ballroom Version)

Streamer turns the EP Title track into a Vogue/Ballroom Bass blitz in the desert. Arab Ha! never sounded quite like this before demonstrating that Streamer is a true Master At Work!

2. Streamer – Last Sacrifice (Bandish Projekt Feat. Aishwarya Joshi)

Bandish Projekt created a spine-tingling remix of The Last Sacrifice featuring Hindi vocals on a 5/8 Dubstep excursion.

3. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Gqom Burn Riddim)

For his first remix of Searching for Ketama (there are 3 in all), Streamer looked to South African Gqom (Gome) for this remix. Commercial and accessible and already supported by BBC Radio 1 and Toddla T amongst others.

4. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Insane Fennel Apocalypse Remix)

Insane Fennel added to the ritual and gave The Last Sacrifice an Apocalyptic Wall of Bass Re-rub. first premiered on the Mad Decent Blog.

5. Streamer – Midnight Express (Neuro Version)

Streamer, who it seems can turn his hand to almost any genre style and pull it off with aplomb, gave Midnight Express a Neuro-Funk, DnB, Jungle make-over turning it into something completely MAD!

6. Streamer -The Last Sacrifice (Sarantis Remix)

Sarantis turns The Last Sacrifice into a Grime epic.

7. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice

Sanmon transformed the sacrificial ritual into a Techno behemoth.

8. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Golden Version)

Streamer’s 2nd remix of Searching for Ketama finds him giving it a Ketama Gold sheen with a harder hitting vibe, taking it way down to 80 BPM.

9. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Zhe Pechorin Remix)

Zhe Pechorin gives The Last Sacrifice a new deep-tribal, slow-grind make-over.

10. Streamer- Bedouin (Center Of The Universe Remix)

Our friend Centre of the Universe was bold enough to tackle Bedouin producing an other-worldly remix that sounds like we could have landed on the moon, way before Neil Armstrong did!

11. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (DesertWave Version)

For streamer’s 3rd and final version of Ketama, he covered an idea I had in my mind for a Bladerunner version in the form of a DesertWave remix harking back to 80’s Synthwave sensibilities.

12. Streamer- Midnight Express (Drvg Cvltvre’s Acid Kool Aid Mix)

We close this Ep/Album with Drvg Cvltvre tapping into early Pink Floyd for inspiration combined with his affinity for Acid and he teases us with a slow bulding mellow monster.

There are a further 11 remixes to drop from producers from all over the world and this has been an exciting project and the results are pretty magnificent! The forthcoming EP/Album features an array of genre styles from current hot fave Gqom (Gome) through to 80’s Synthwave, Grime, Tribal, Vogue/Ballroom, Techno, Wobble, Neuro Funk, DnB, Acid, Jungle and Skweee.

Gqom : Like This!

WEB_PHOTO_AF_FASHION1_06082015

Streamer has been at the Gqom again and he’s come up with a storming new track which is an awesome prelude to the Walking with Camels Remix EP that we’ll be dropping soon.  Incidentally, a Gqom remix from the forthcoming EP has been getting support from the BBC at Radio 1 with Toddla T.

The great thing about Streamer is that he doesn’t create all this quality music for fame or fortune or to jump on some bandwagon, he does it because he just genuinely loves the music and loves to create!

This new track is just going to kill it on the dance floors with heaps of bass and tons of bleeps and those PSYCHO Strings! This is GHETTOPHONIC………….LIKE THIS!!

Here’s a few other new tracks too which are just sublime too.

FREE DOWNLOAD : CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE – NEVER MIND THE BÖREKS EP

Never-mind-the-børeks

Norwegian artist Center of the Universe aka Jørgen Skjulstads has been on the Generation Bass radar for a few years now. Center of the Universe does a unique brand of quirky electronica that takes in all manner of things. His releases contain traditional songs remade alongside original compositions inspired by archaic entertainment consoles and pre-iPhone computer culture ranging from Azeri Skip, Post-Reggaeton, BalkanBit, Oriental Dub, Arabic Skweee, Balkan Skweee through to Post-Rembetika amongst many other things.

For Generation Bass he has dropped this free Arabic Skweee/Oriental Dub/Greek/Turkish EP which he calls “Never mind the böreks”. This EP consists of 4 tracks.

FREE DOWNLOAD NOW VIA BANDCAMP:

Following our short preface, C.O.U. tells us about the tracks in his own words:

1. Sigara Böreği

This track has a very Kraftwerk vibe about it in terms of tempo and melody.

“This started out as a remix for Oslo avant-rockers Moon Relay. First I sang upon their guitars and added a lot of instruments for their remix. Then I wanted to do a break-dance-version of that remix and in the process everything except some ring modulated synths and the beat was gone out in favour of some more oriental vibes. The track is heavily inspired by Swedish Skweee-pioneer and Dj Daniel Savio.”

2. Black Feta

This is an epic track and we love the way that it builds up to that nastier wobble section. It’s got an air of Oum Kalthoum about it, that epic, lengthy, big Egyptian sound.

“A few years ago I made a bootleg of the Bendaly family “Do you love me?” I wanted to do a similar track but without sampling someone. For this I recorded some oud, some synths and a cimbalon and tried to edit them into an oriental dub-mix.”

3. Songs of Today

At first, we thought this was a Balkan track, Serbian or Bosnian, surprised when we found it was Greek. It’s got a Trap vibe about it and is a great opener for a DJ set. Sounds like a contemporary urban version of a track from a good time musical soundtrack.

“This song started with a sample from a Greek old record bought at a flea-marked. There are only Greek letters on it except of the title “Songs of today” I got a Greek friend to translate the words and it is a nice love song.

Chorus goes like: (get out my delalis* and agas** in
sejiani***) * Turkish word for the man that used to shout the news on the streets ** Turkish word for the prince *** serjiani = relaxing by looking at the horizon without doing anything.

Pretty lyrical innit!”

4. The Power of Börek

This reminds us 50 Cent. A very melodic track with an awesome DnB section.

“This song is named after a home-made semi-modular synth called the Börek energy, which provides the bass-line for the track. It is homage to US producer Lazercrotch that made a lot of nice music a bit similar to this”.

5. Sigara Böreği (Streamer’s Late Night Take-Away Remix)

A bonus remix by our friend Streamer (“Walking with Camels” EP on GB) takes C.O.U. into 90’s Madchester territory with a bumpy, groovy ‘twistin’ my melons man’ mood!

BIO:

Inspired by folk music and rhythmic excesses from all over the world the Center of the Universe made his first recordings in 2000. The group, which admittedly is not a band, but rather Jørgen Skjulstads (Now we’ve got members, Salvatore) solo project, combines heavy bass, odd meters and various exotic elements with a lo-fi approach in his recording methods.

Center of the Universe has been active in the Norwegian underground music scene since 1998 and has in addition to participating in several other projects, found the time to release a whole host of solo albums, including a trilogy where the theme was space and time. It is difficult to give a clear definition of the band’s musical impression, as this tends to change from release to release, but it would not be wrong to say that melody is always at the center. What apparently may begin as a pop song entices you into a world where nothing is as it seems and musical expectations are seldom met. For the Center of the Universe no surna is too high and no bass too deep. He has always walked off the beaten path next to the road less travelled and keeps trudging on in a landscape where the sun shines, vulcanoes erupt and it’s raining guitars, sitars and just plain’ol tars.

DAVID BOWIE R.I.P : Space Oddity (Streamer's In The Stars Remix) & Dazed Digital Synth Hero Tribute Mix

maxresdefault

David Bowie will be sorely missed by millions for years to come. You’ve read all the personal tributes, goodbyes and obituaries the past day or so all over the internet on blogs, mags and on the telly.

I’m not going to go into a huge spiel about what David Bowie meant to me or about how he cool he was when he was hanging out with my friends. I will just say this though, he did some life changing stuff that had a huge impact and influence upon me, he did some ok stuff which was pretty bland and he also did some really questionable stuff which was pretty awful. But what I loved about him most was that he didn’t really give a fuck, he did what he wanted to do.  The greatest thing of all is that he did things first and kept on evolving and changing and took risks unafraid of their success or failure. And, that there will never be another Bowie!

Here’s 2 awesome things that I picked up on Soundcloud paying tribute to him.

First up there’s an amazing remix worthy of inclusion and a most fitting tribute by our boy Streamer. I just think this is sublime:

Next up is an amazing mix by Dazed Digital. This mix encompasses my favourite Bowie tracks from my most favourite period of his, the Eno & Nile Rodgers period. It’s pretty perfect!

Here’s what Dazed say:

“Everyone has their favourite David Bowie musical era. For me, it was when he teamed up with Brian Eno in 1977 to create “The Berlin Trilogy” of albums – Low, Heroesand Lodger – followed by his hyper pop work with Nile Rodgers on Let’s Dance. He was one of my ultimate synth heroes; a star who revelled in creating everything from ambient electronic soundscapes and chart topping synth pop, to IDB and brutal industrial music. I created this mix to celebrate his massive contribution to electronic music, which was broadcasted live on NTS last night as a tribute to the great man. From the hits to some deep cuts you may not have heard before, take some time out and submerge yourself in an hour of the master’s immortal synth oddities.”

TRACKLIST:

1. Shake it
2. Let’s Dance
3. Weeping Wall
4. Ashes to Ashes
5. A New Career in a New Town

STREAMER : WALKING WITH CAMELS EP – XMAS DAY FREE DOWNLOAD

camels-cover-Finalsml

We’ve given you so many presents over the past 6 years and here’s our latest for Xmas 2015.

Streamer: Walking With Camels EP – Free Download

All tracks by Streamer. Feat:
Tracks 1 & 3 Aleksandar Grujic (Keys from Serbia )
Tracks 1 & 3 Christoph Scherbaum (Guitars from Switzerland)
Track 1 Yrjänä Rankka (Bass from Finland)

For this EP, Streamer has taken a leaf from the book of famous French composer Maurice Jarre who scored orchestral soundtracks with a Middle Eastern vibe for world famous movies like “Lawrence of Arabia” and “The man who would be King”.

Streamer takes the blueprint from the soundtracks of such movies to create an EP filled with nostalgia from the era of yesteryear but with a modern Psychedelic Orchestral Dub blend fitting for today. Over the 4 tracks, Streamer scores a sonic, cinematic Desert Wave soundtrack for an imagined movie yet to be made. You can feel the dust and the heat emanating from the desert where the nomads wander searching for the meaning of life. Here, life is simple but complex, harder yet easier and brutal but beautiful and Streamer’s soundtrack underscores all of this.

Have a Happy Middle Eastern Christmas!
