A couple of weeks ago, my mate Freq Nastyoffered me to remix his new tune with Tippa Irie and SolarLion « Not Givin In », a dirty moombahton tune with this raw dubstep flavor youngsters love :)
I know Freq for almost 8 years now, he was one of the first big djs to give me feedbacks about my first release, a remix of « Pump Up the Volume« . For the story, this release was out on vinyl through a label called Dark Fish Records, and one day, i received an email from his manager, asking me if i could send him a copy cos his record case had been stolen and he loved this tune, playing it in every set. You can imagine how happy i was ;)
Then i met him a couple of times in London and always send him my tunes. When he asked me if i was up for remixing his tune, i was of course happy again.
Xenoglossia(from Greek xenos/ foreigner and glōssa/tongue or language) is the name of this paranormal phenomenon in which a person is able to speak or write a language he or she supposedly could not have acquired by natural means.
Imagine a person who speaks German fluently, but who’s not German, has never studied german, never been to a german-speaking country, and never associated with german speakers or had any other source of exposure to the german language, would be said to exhibit xenoglossy. Weird.
This is actually the impression i got when i’ve finished this tune. I’ve done it in one go, and never expect to do such a hybrid tune. Is it techno ? is it global bass ?
I don’t know and i think i don’t care actually. But for sure it is tribal… and personnal.
I also had the surprising opportunity to work on a video for this tune. The Génard Brothers (as i used to call them – Romain & P-a) are 2 guys from my own city. I met P-a a year ago cos he helped me working on some visuals while i was working on the promotion of RAW. He came back a couple of month later with his brother and they offered me to shoot a video for one of the tune of my choice.
Of course, i couldn’t say no :)
And the result is a very solid & sexy video, really strong quality for a first try (it was their first video ever!!).
I’d like to thank Camille Sellès (camera-woman), Fred Sigaud (light), le Transbordeur (for letting us use their place) and of course, the actress, Kayije. Isn’t she sublime ?
So of course, download the tune, watch the video & please share it with your friends!
So this time, they’re dropping some Tropical Bass and Electro House.
Previously known as Mopse (a hip-hop producer who gotinterests from the likes of Amon Tobin and Ennio Morricone (and even released an official remix for the second one) Baxter Beez has been producing electro ever since. His original track is perfect for these early summer days (here in South France, we are already chilling on the beach when not producing music -hence this nice visual by Pablito Zago). Tropical beat, housy synths and classic vocal samples set the mood for this track you might want to play loud at your pool party or carnival this summer.
And you should indeed ! Maurice (BLKSQR) just released some heavy material on Lee Mortimer‘s Wearhouse Records and is set to a great future, and his remix’s got some heavy bassline to it, that deffo takes the track somewhere else.
Last but not least, Howie Lee comes from Beijing, China! The guys proves that Asia is now on the map in electronic music and has nothing to envy us anymore. Groove is in the house !
I’m back again!! I’m really sorry, i’ve been really shit lately to write on my blog cos there are some many things happening at the moment, it’s crazy! You’ll know more about it very soon, i’m actually preparing a long post about what happened these last couple of weeks ;)
But for now, let’s enjoy some fresh music! I’m very happy to tell you my remix of « Party crasher » from top belgium band the Peas Project is now available in good record shops!
The original tune is a very addictive kuduresque dance tune, with amazing vocals, so when they asked me if i was up for remixing it, i said « Hell Yeah!! ». The result is a moombahton remix, keeping the vocal flavor pretty identical, but with a slower twist. If you like sexy booty shaking music, i think this one is for you.
Early supports from Armand Van Helden, Crookers, Etienne De Crecy, His Majesty Andre, Nick Catchdubs, Chrissy Murderbot, Larry Tee, Malente, Big Dope P, J Paul Getto, Schlachthofbronx, Nic Sarno, Tvyks, Hudson Mohawke, Ben Mono, Titan, Lenno and more !
HELL YEAH! I am SO excited this remix to be out!! Today i’m proud to tell you my remix of Joelito « Sick Head » is out on HUUUUUUGE label MAD DECENT!
For those who don’t know, Mad Decentis Diplo’s label, one of the most exciting labels at the moment.
Sick Head is Joelito‘s original tune. Joelito is a talented producer from Sweden, specialist of Tropical Bass (when the weather is bad like in Sweden i think you need the music to be HOT!). His tune « Sick Head » is a maaad tune with loads of cumbia elements in it. I had the honnor to make a remix of it and i’ve done something REALLY savage :)
I did something a little bit different… i got inspired by a new movement from Mexico called 3ball, which is getting really famous through bands like 3ball MTY. And in the more underground scene through guys like Munchi.
And you’re lucky, cos the release is free in 192ko before a proper release on Beatport.
Have a listen, download and please spread the word!
I hope you’ll like my remix, probably the one i’m the most proud of :)
