Man FM kicks off 2014 with an exclusive guest mix by Copenhagen’s tropical vikings Copia Doble Systema. The artist collective around DJs/producers Copyflex and Julius Sylvest recently teamed up with Italian ghetto bass sensation Milangeles for the title track of their Passionata EP on Man Recordings.
Estonian bass heavyweight Bert On Beats talks about his new EP Pa Pa Pa featuring Baile Funk goddess Deize Tigrona, explains how the Soviet empire made him love Caribbean music and reveals some surprising plans for the new year.
And as usual, Man FM host Alex from Hat+Hoodie opens the show with a fine selection of the latest in tropical bass. Turn on, tune in and Pa Pa Pa!
2013 was a great year in music. Though there´s hardly any album standing out as a master oeuvre, there´s been tons of amazing new tracks and artists to watch. While the pop world circled around Miley Cyrus, Daft Punk and Kanye West, the commercial dimensions of club culture entered next level in Las Vegas with DJ events bringing in more cash than slotmachine or roulette earnings. EDM became a parody everybody loved to hate. In the field of tropical bass, Tarraxo, renamed as Zouk Bass, was this year´s head-turner, though it eventually didnt succeed to create more of a handful of worthy tracks by its bandwagon-jumping, international adaptors. Afro House remained the next big thing (again) with productions from South Africa, Angola and Mozambique raising the production bar higher, though the increasing branching out to deep house turned off many people. Baile Funk returned with homegrown hits such as “Ah Lelek Lek” or “Bigode Grosso” and the fusionings with trap.
For the Man Recordings crew, it was also a great year. Schlachthofbronx toured relentlessly while working on a new album, Daniel Haaksman kicked off his weekly radio show, created Lusotronics festival and banged out two-much played singles, João Brasil triumphed with his much acclaimed, new Rio Shock project, So Shifty got deeper into the production game with making ace beats for Major Lazer, Bert On Beats teamed up with DJ Sliink and released two high-calibred singles on Man, and finally there´s the hot new Italian promise, Milangeles, their debut EP on Man Rec excited many.

After short release stints on Mad Decent and Trouble & Bass and his much celebrated team-up with New Jersey don daa DJ Sliink, Estonia´s bass maestro Bert On Beats returns with a new single to his original homebase, Man Recordings.
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.
Diplo: Killing it!
Astronomar: Fun release, diggin´it!
So Shifty: Love the horns! Remixes are top notch as well. Can’t miss!
DJ Sabo: Nice to hear some good ol’ fashion baile funk lyrics again!
Scottie B: Haaksman = Quality PERIOD!
Pacheko: Haaksman remix is cool
DJ Yoda: Like the original!
JStar: Yes Yes this fills up my tropical fruit basket nicely!
Max Le Daron: Milangeles remix is tight as usual! Vini version is going in my crates too!
Boyfriend: The Original and Daniels versions are amazing!
