Did you ever wondered how a Steve Reich minimalist kalimba composition could sound in combination with a heavy sub bass and a two step influenced rhythm? Well, Daniel Haaksman serves the answer: His new single “Rename The Streets” perfectly combines the best of classic minimalism with the bass love of today, the kalimba is rooting the track somewhere in Africa, the sound of the sub bass connects it with Europe and the Carribbean.

The great thing about this beautiful track: You can dance to it, at the same time it raises political awareness. The music video to “Rename The Streets” is adressing the demand for street name changes in Berlin´s colonial quarter, the so called “Afrikanisches Viertel”. In the video, two pole-dancers transform street signs bearing the names of questionable colonial figueres with their moves. Yes, call “Rename The Streets” funky postcolonialism!

The single comes with a DJ friendly extended mix and two remixes. The first remix is by Lisbon´s Kuduro whizkid and Afro don of the hour Dotorado, whose “African Scream” track was considered by many DJs one of the major club tracks of 2015. The second remix by South Africa´s DJ Spoko – the inventor of “Bacardi House”, which laid the foundation to the global success to DJ Mujava´s “Township Funk”. The artwork is by German artist and Venice Biennale 2009 golden lion winner Tobias Rehberger.

“Rename The Streets” is the first single from the upcoming Daniel Haaksman “African Fabrics” album which is scheduled for a late February 2016 release.

Early DJ support by Duke Dumont, Feadz, Seiji, Sinden, Toy Selectah, Roundtable Knights, Flexican, Philippe Cohen-Solal/Gotan Project, and many more!
