SAMITOfinal

We here at Man Recordings are extremely happy to present the new release by Canadian-Moçambican singer Samito. “I Saw You” is a trans world Afro house and electro inspired club tune about a lost love.

Samito is a singer-songwriter, producer and performer whose distinct blend of electro, afro and indie vibes bear the marks of the three cities he has lived in: Maputo, Cape Town and Montréal. In 2016 Samito made his first mark with his hit “Tiku La Hina” on Costume Records. This record was streamed and played around the world propelling him into the global club scene and countless live stages. 2016 also saw the release of “Cem Cem (feat. Mabika & Muneshine)” on French fashion + music Label Kitsuné. Now he collaborated with Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman, who co-produced “I Saw You”. To put it short, Samito is out to roll!

“I Saw You” features the big voice of the mighty Mabika, a Geneva native, now based in Montréal too, keeping it 100. This renaissance-man is a performer, recording and VFX artist. Mabika formerly has collaborated with Christian Pronovost as well with Samito on various occasions. For “I Saw You”, Mabika contributes a super vocal spit in Lingala, a language common in the area of Congo.

The original version received three international remix treatments. The Afro house version comes from Man Recordings´own Daniel Haaksman, sizzling hot new London producer Mina (of Enchufada fame) remixed “I Saw You” into a Naija-pop inspired version. And finally Nairobi´s Jinku, one of the leaders of the East African Wave posse who´s currently putting the new sound of Kenya on the international map.

Play it out, and make everybody dance to the sound of Samito!

Early DJ support from Branko, Poirier, Max Le Daron, Emily Dust and Philippe Cohen-Solal (Gotan Project) amongst others.

Man Recordings returns after a short autumn/winter hiatus with four remixes of the highly praised “Baile Saboroso” Ep by Brazilian wunderkind Omulu and French dembow don King Doudou. The original EP was bigged up by players such as Diplo, Munchi, Uproot Andy, Poirier, Feadz and many others.

The remixes are kicked off by Portugal´s tarraxo beat mestre Mambos Da Casa and his sweet Afro house meets baile funk remix of “Bonde Da Pantera” ft. MC Tha. A version perfect for getting ladies started on the dancefloor. The second rework is by Amsterdam based Fasta (of “Fulanito” fame) who added extra Dutch moombathon flavour to the original track.

“Baile Saboroso”, the lead track from the original EP gets an edit treatment by Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman who replaced the original trance synth with Marimbas making it sound more organic. Finally, Kid Cala is baile funking “Baile Saboroso” to high fever pitch with his club friendly version.

The “Baile Saboroso Remixes” – four various that carefully dose a mix of trap with Afro house, moombathon and baile funk sounds, designed to smash dancefloor from Paris to São Paulo and beyond!

Early DJ support from Poirier, Toy Selectah, DJ Orgasmic, Sinden and many more!
