With our 100th release, we thought we´ll celebrate in style. Not wanting to put out another compilation with collabs of our labels artist, we decided to do something different, something fun. After musically touching bases with Brasil, Angola, Mozambique and almost everything in between, our label boss Daniel Haaksman instead decided to open a new chapter in our musical journey.

The “Fun Fun Fun / Aná Aná Aná” single presents his take on the hi-speed dance sound of Cabo Verde called Funaná. Cabo Verde is the beautiful island archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean which is located at the very geographical center of South America, the Caribbean, North America, Africa and Europe. In short, it´s in the middle of the sphere called the Black Atlantic, a zone of vast musical and cultural exchange of which we´ve been releasing sounds since our catalogue number 01, the now legendary “Não Wave” compilation.

Earlier this year, Daniel stayed for a few weeks in Cabo Verde to initiate the international music festival Lusafro, which brought musicians from the Portuguese speaking countries of Africa together with artists from Germany. Man 100 is a result of Daniel´s island visit and the joyful time he spent on Cabo Verde.

Thus, “Fun Fun Fun / Aná Aná Aná” is another milestone in our release history. Already caned by Lusafro participating artist DJ Marfox on his recent world tour and baptized in the extensive studio sessions during Lusafro by Cabo Verde´s creme of the crop of young MCs and singers such as Dino D´Santiago, Fattú Djakité, Nissah Barbosa, Rapaz 100 Juiz and Batchart amongst others, “Fun Fun Fun” mixes beats and accordion sounds of Funaná with trap and Euro bass music components. Consider it one of the biggest tropical bass summer tunes of 2017, perfect for the big stages.

Track two, “Aná Aná Aná” is also featuring the accordion but with no half time break. It is inspired by Cabo Verde´s Kotxi Pó genre, the hardcore, electronic and instrumental version of Funaná, sometimes up to 30 min long which currently dominates Cabo Verde´s airwaves and dancefloors.

“Passa sabi!” as they say in Cabo Verde creole. (“Have fun!”)

Early DJ support from DJ Marfox, Branko, Schlachthofbronx, Populous and many more!
