The 2013 release of the debut EP of the student percussion ensemble Banda Westfalica from the German city of Bünde, North-Rhine-Westphalia, was an unusual release for Man Recordings. Here were some musicians that would play tropical music exclusively acoustically, focussing on unearthing the rhythmic and melodic structure of originally electronically produced songs from the Man Recordings catalogue which originally would tear clubs apart. Banda Westfalica layed bare the soul of tracks such as “Carimbo” or “Tulum” by Schlachthofbronx, “K Le Pasa” by El Dusty, “El Toro” by Beware + Motorpitch, “Hands Up” by Daniel Haaksman or “Cartagenera” by Dutch Rhythm Combo. The versions on Banda Westfalica´s EP displayed a musicality that was buried deep inside those club bangers – and surprised many. “Versions Remixes” now brings the acoustic versions back to the club.

BANDA WESTFALICA

Teased with the rhythm tracks and dope stems of Banda Westfalica´s 2m-sized Marimba, we asked a handful of hot and upcoming remixers such as Castro, Criolina, Chong-X, Danilo, Alma Negra, Doblhoff & Wiesflecker, Motin and Johnny 500 (a.k.a. Gijs Scheeringa) to re-work the Banda Westfalica versions. The results are stunning, from zouk bass (Danilo) to trap (Johnny 500) to Afro beat inspirations (Doblhoff & Wiessflecker, Alma Negra) to tropical bass (Motin) to finally electronica tuned vibes (Castro UK and Criolina) there´s a vast sonic range in the set of remixes. Many of the remixers are new names on the block, but all proved their skills masterfully. So here´s Banda Westfalica´s “Versions Remixes”.

DJ feedbacks:

Crookers: “Castro remix in my next set!”
Toddla T: “Motin remix is great!”
Munchi: “Danilo Remix – Ha!!”
Mixhell: “Alma Negra remix is dope!”
Schlachthofbronx: Really nice slo-mo vibes on the Chong X Remix!”
Round Table Knights: “Motin remix is dope!”
DJ Sabo: “Johnny 500 mix is cool, thanks!”
Mumdance: “Love the Castro remix!”
Orion: “So dope! I thought the originals couldnt get any better!”

BERT ON BEATS

For “Pa Pa Pa” Bert On Beats teamed up with legendary baile funk MC Deize Tigrona from the infamous “City Of God” in Rio De Janeiro. Her voice was forged in hundreds of bailes, her song “Injeção” was the founding tune of M.I.A.´s first hit “Bucky Done Gone”. Since more than a decade, Deize has worked with various international producers such as Diplo, Buraka Som Sistema, Jesse Rose, Oliver $, Edu K and Jaloo amongst others, and is considered one the biggest female artists in baile funk.

On “Pa Pa Pa” Deize is fusing her rhymes with a Cuban brass flavour that Bert recorded in his hometown Tallinn. Add the electro funk vibe and you have a club ready tropical tune that sonically melts Rio heat with Baltic bass – a perfect soundtrack for transnational bunda movements.

The single comes with remixes by Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman, New York favela trap maestro DJ Comrade, Italy´s hot Ghetto stallions Milangeles, São Paulo´s up-and-coming baile-twerkster Viní and last but not least Sydney´s Luny P.

MAN 081 DANIEL HAAKSMAN – TOMA QUE TOMA

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013
MAN 081 DANIEL HAAKSMAN - TOMA QUE TOMA

Daniel Haaksman -081

With “Toma Que Toma” Europe´s Nr.1 baile funk lover, Daniel Haaksman, returns with a club bomb that is hardly resistable.

With an accordeon sound nicked from a Tarantela tune off a Spaghetti Western soundtrack, plus the trademark 808 snare roll of baile funk and the demand to “Toma Que Toma”, this track will not only be moving bundas to the ground, but packing dancefloors alike.

“Toma Que Toma” is a ubiquious saying in both Spanish and Portuguese language and was often sampled by Rio funk producers. It literally translates to “Get you some” or “Take the take” or “Drink for drink”.

Besides the party-blowing original mix, the single comes with an A1 pack of currently much hyped remixers. The remixes are kicked off by Bot, formerly of Crookers fame and now part of the Main Course collective alongside Astronomar and Neoteric, who went Jersey club style with his version of “Toma Que Toma”. Super hot Italian stallions, Milangeles, shaped Haaksman´s tune into their trademark juke-meets-polka bounce flavour. Then it´s São Paulo´s trap dons Tropkillaz who put “Toma Que Toma” on the tropical bass down low. Last but not least, it´s Waldo Squash of Belem´s Gang Do Eletro who dissolved “Toma Que Toma” into a bouncy Tecno Brega remix.

Four sizzling hot remixes, plus an original mix ready to instantly tropicalize any club, and make the crowd go “Toma Que Toma!”

Diplo: “Bigbigbigbigbig!”
Crookers: “Original version is $”

MAN 080 MILANGELES – PASSIONATA EP

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013
MAN 080 MILANGELES - PASSIONATA EP

MILANGELES-PASSIONATA

Man Recordings is happy to present to you the debut EP by a new Italian crew. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome: Milangeles.

The two producers started as DJs and party promoters in their local town of Pavia, which is closely located to the city of Milan. “Milangeles” is a North Italian term for Latin American working migrants living in greater Milan, a name appropriate for the musical project of Filippo Tortorici and Teddy Renton. Two years ago, Flippo and Teddy got into producing their own edits and remixes for tracks they digged and eventually started to make their own tunes.

When DJing with them at one of their Fiasco parties in Pavia, Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman was impressed by their unique approach to musically fuse all things ghetto. In a Milangeles track you can easily travel from juke to trap to polka to baile funk back and forth within 2.5 minutes. An approach perfect for a release on Man Recordings.

And now Milangeles release their “Passionata” EP, which of course means “being passionate” in Italian. And boy, are they hot!
The EP opens with the super “Samuel” tune which features a very known 1980s electro funk sample, twisted the Milangeles way. Starting with a cumbia groove you soon find yourself in a ghetto polka.

“Pan Man” kicks off bad man style and then soon drops into a down low pogo that surely will get your dancefloor blown into pieces. “Senta Senta Senta” feat. Rio De Janeiro´s baile funk crew Bonde Das Preparadas makes sure all girls will go up and down with their hips in the club. Finally, there´s the EP´s title track “Passionata” a laid back bass baby that everyone will get down to. It features the mighty Copia Doble Systema from Copenhagen – a match made in heaven.

Now wake the town and tell the people! Milangeles are here!

MAN 079 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT CORÉON DU – LEMBA REMIXES

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013
MAN 079 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT CORÉON DU - LEMBA REMIXES

Lemba Rx

While the original version of Daniel Haaksman´s “Lemba” ft. Coréon Dú is still getting heavy club play around the world, we present you two amazing remixes of the Angolan-German collaboration.

The Swiss wonder boys of house music, the Round Table Knights from Berne (of Made To Play and Exploited fame) were such fans of the original “Lemba” version, that they put a lot of effort in their bouncy remix. Re-examining the clap loop of the original, the Roundies added a slick bass and fidgety sounds and gave “Lemba” a serious Euro club treatment.

ROUND TABLE KNIGHTS

The second remix comes from the Dizona Crew a.k.a. the DZC Deejays of Setubal in Portugal. The producer and DJ collective, which recently turned heads with their seminal “Tarraxo Na Parede” track and various club friendly remixes between Kuduro, Funana and Tarraxo. DZC Deejays, shaped “Lemba” into a percussion heavy, Afro house inspired tune.
