So Shifty from Hamburg, Germany have been long time associates of Man Recordings. Their remixes for Beware+Motorpitch´s „El Toro“ as well as their remix of El Dusty´s 3ball hit „K Le Pasa“ have been on heavy rotation around the world for a while and recent remixes for No Doubt, Busy Signal, I-Octane, Chan Dizzy, Popcaan, Shal Marshall and others have been popping up left, right and centre. Their high-powered sound system DJ sets are considered to rank among the most powerful shows on the current tropical bass scene.

SO SHIFTY

Now it´s high time for the Nordic power duo to release an original release. It features the mighty Cuban trio Madera Limpia, who in an earlier incarnation released their seminal „Loco“ track on Man Recordings in 2008. Madera Limpia are based in Guantanamo, the infamous town home to the American war prison ( still in operation under Obama rule) and contributed an amazing song to the waist-shaking beats of So Shifty. Call it a summer hit even now that summer has already peaked – or simply a big, tropical tune that fuses Reggaeton rhythm patterns with contemporary Moombah sounds.

The EP is heavily loaded with remixes that features a wide range of tropicalists from all over the field. Man Rec boss Daniel Haaksman gave Madera Limpia a another remix treatment and with his tropical trance twist, made it ready for the clubs. Chong-X from Peru, currently considered one of the hottest remix tickets in the transglobal bass field, gave „Rumba“ a heavy Moombathon treatment, right up there with his other recent remixes for Torito Bandindo or Rawpa Crawpa. Legendary Brasilian MC/DJ and producer Edu K, Man Rec´s first released artist, returns after a two-year musical hibernation with a surprising North Brasilian / Bahian take on „Rumba“. Additionally, there´s german Club dons BassIllEuro from Stuttgart bringing „Rumba“ to the Moombahton crowds, with an uptempo version of So Shifty’s anthem. And last but not least it´s time for the Austin-based Peligrosa crew (from the blog/label/DJ-collective) to give „Rumba“ the Texas treatment.

With Madera Limpia, Man Recordings temporarily moves from it’s Brazilian focus and looks up to the Carribean for an exciting new band – Madera Limpia. This band is the sound of young Cuba. Real, contemporary, explosive, and far away from the nostalgic cliché of Buena Vista Social Club. The six musicians from Guantánamo fuse Son and Changui with Hip Hop and Reggaeton, mixed with pulsating beats. Their music mirrors the culture and everyday life of a new generation which listens to hip hop, dancehall or reggaeton but doesn’t ignore the vast musical traditions of Cuba. Madera Limpia texts reflect real life. Instead of joining the rest of the lot recycling the worn out myth of the colourful decaying Havana, cigars and rum; they talk about the hardships of life in a burnt out Cuba on the verge of change; with only music to ease the pain.

When Man Recordings label boss Daniel Haaksman was asked by Munich based Out Here records to remix Madera Limpia’s „Loco“ he was so enthusiastic about the parts he got sent that he locked himself up in a studio to create a mix of Madera Limpia that would fit his booty bouncing DJ sets. In his hands-up in the air, 100% booty shaking mix the melodic and rhythmical power of the original track was injected with pure dynamite: A bouncing uptempo beat, a thundering bass drum and a raved-up synth hook. This is „Loco – the Daniel Haaksman Remix“ which has been destroying dancefloors everywhere ever since Haaksman sent out promo MP3s of his remix to befriended DJ mates, such as Sinden, Diplo, DJ Beware or Zombie Disco Squad.

Eventually, Haaksman dedcided to license his remix together with the original track to Man Recordings releasing it in a loud, DJ friendly volume on vinyl. The remix introduces the release of Madera Limpia’s upcoming hot new album „La corona“ on Out here records in September 2008.
