#2 in our Throwback Thursday´s series is a track by Bert On Beats from 2010 ft. the mighty Brazilian singer MC Gi. What made the release extra special was the line up of remixers: Schlachthofbronx, Roulet and Bambounou. Today known as hottest techno export from Paris, “Alemão” was one of Bambounou´s first remixes ever. At that moment, still dabbling with various tropical genres, Bambounou´s remix is take on 3Ball Monterrey, which around late 2009 early 2010 was all the rage. Listen to it below and play it out (again), it hasn´t lost its greatness.
“Akabongi” ft. Spoek Mathambo is the opening track of Daniel Haaksman´s acclaimed “African Fabrics” album and since its original release, has become a secret club hit.
Now released as a single including three new versions, “Akabongi” (Zulu for “no gratitude”) is featuring the shining voice of South African superstar Spoek Mathambo. Spoek perfectly reinterpretes the legendary 1980s song by South African mbaqanga heroes The Soul Brothers, adding contemporaneity with a cool freestyle rap . The magnificient guitar play by Colombia´s Bulldozer adds up to a tropical, Zoukous resembling vibe that puts sunshine and joy onto every dancefloor.
The original version is supplemented with an extended mix plus a club ready Afro house remix by South Africa´s jack of all trades, Mo Laudi. To round up the tropical feeling, Lithunia´s Boyfriend remade “Akabongi” in dembow fashion.
Play it out loud and make sure that “Akabongi” will become the summer club anthem of 2016!

Call it a Bert On Friday if you wish, our Estonian bass don Bert On Beats will be giving away a free banger choon on every first Friday of the month! Bert´s going to kick the debut off a little earlier this time with “Wedding”. It´s a track for all you guys diggin’ these over amplified double-reed mijwiz and oud sounds, heavy beats, handclaps with compelling vocal cuts and some low end niceness.
Those who take the bride and groom as enemies won’t be forgiven! :) this is Dabke influenced beats from north side of the globe. Call it a bassed up Omar Souleyman for the club.
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.
“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”.
