MAN 087 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT. BULLDOZER "SABADO" REMIX EP

Man 087

Daniel Haaksman´s “Sabado” tune ft. Bulldozer has turned a lot of heads on dancefloors around the world since its release earlier this year with its perfect blending of afro vibes, champeta licks and tropical beats. Now the big tune gets a high quality four-pack remix treatment. In classic Man Recordings fashion, the remix EP comes with four differently tempo and style versions from around the world.

Londons garage bass dons LV, of which Daniel has been a long time fan, deliver an high powered island version of “Sabado” that will rock any party carnival style. South African hot ticket of the moment, Aero Manyelo, twisted “Sabado” into a township style house tune. Remix number three comes from Boogaloo, a long time insider´s tip from Lisbon. For their version, they removed “Sabado”´s original melody and remade it in tropical house fashion. The EP gets perfectly rounded up by the dembow inspired version of UK´s Castro who lately rose to prominence in the global bass scene with his releases on Enchufada records.

Four amazing remixes that can be played in all kinds of DJ sets : Daniel Haaksman´s “Sabado” tune is here to stay in crates and dancefloors all summer!

Switch “LV remix = Tite!”

Man 086 Daniel Haaksman - Sabado ft. Bulldozer

Man 086 Cover Small

What´s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon? One option is to drive out of town to the beach and hang out with your friends. Crank up the volume of your car stereo and enjoy your own music selection while sipping beers and puffing joints.
Now imagine this scenario in a sub-saharan African metropolis of today. Add a bit of a traffic jam before you reach the beach, think of car stereos that blast out selections of Afro House, Kuduro, Kizomba and African Rap. And soon you are close to the vibe that Daniel Haaksman´s new single “Sabado” is all about.

DANIEL HAAKSMAN

“Sabado” is a laid back uptempo track that puts the listener to an imaginary car park party on an African city beach front. It features the mighty guitar licks of Colombia´s Bulldozer, but has an allover South-African feel to it. Yes, Paul Simon´s “Graceland” is an influence here, but also all the hot new house track that comes out of South Africa and the Portuguese speaking African countries such as Angola and Moçambique. Consequently, the tune is called “Sabado”, Portuguese for “Saturday”.

Early DJ support by Crookers, Poirier, Toy Selectah, Round Table Knights, So Shifty, Samim, DJ Sabo, Shir Khan (Exploited) and many more!

LUSO FM #100 ON FUNKHAUS EUROPA

LUSO FM #100 ON FUNKHAUS EUROPA

Daniel Haaksman just celebrated the one hundredth volume of his weekly radio show Luso FM on German public radio station Funkhaus Europa. In little more than two years, despite being presented in German language, Luso FM has become a global reference to new sounds and artists from countries such as Angola, Brasil, Portugal, Moçambique and Capo Verde.

In Luso FM #100, Daniel presents the most played songs and talks about guest mixes and the rising wave of cutting edge sounds and grooves from the Portuguese speaking world which developed largely unnoticed outside the Anglo-Saxon dominated, online media world we live in. Over it´s one hundred show stretch, Luso FM presented genres like Kuduro, Baile Funk, Tecno Brega, Funana, Kizomba, Ku House, Favela Trap or Pandza and displayed the music´s countless trans-atlantic relationships and diasporic roots. One hundred volumes of Luso FM have shown that music from the lusosphere (“Luso” meaning “Portuguese speaking” (anaolgous to Francophone for French speaking)) has become an important force in global dance music to reckon with. If you missed out any past shows, check out Daniel´s Luso FM playlist on Soundcloud which contains 97 of the 100 last presentations. Man Rec says Big Up!
