More than thirty years after its original release, Malcolm McLaren´s “Duck Rock” album stands out as one of the most innovative – yet underrated – albums of the 1980s. For audiences outside the U.S.A. “Duck Rock” single handedly introduced the holy trinity of hip hop – rapping, breakdancing and graffiti – through the music video of the album´s hit single “Buffalo Gals”, and debuted the sound of vinyl scratching in the pop charts. “Duck Rock”, produced by 1980s producer superstar Trevor Horn, was also one the first pop album to introduce sampling technology. Without “Duck Rock” there certainly would be no Man Recordings – and Pharell wouldn´t walk around in his giant Canadian ranger hat, as it was originally designed by Malcolm McLaren´s then wife, Vivienne Westwood, accompanying the “Duck Rock” album.
Besides all the sonic, visual and technological introductions the most radical concept of “Duck Rock” however lied in the collage aesthetics of the album. Conceived as a NY pirate radio show, hosted by the DJs of the World´s Famous Supreme Team show, the album is a musical world trip on which Malcolm McLaren takes the listener from the Bronx to Soweto, to the Caribbean to West-Africa, to Kentucky and back to New York. At a time when the electro pop and New Wave was ruling the charts, McLaren proposed to look at roots music from around the world for musical innovation, patching together in an amazing, eclectic mix. The accompanying music videos for the hit-singles “Buffalo Gals” and “Double Dutch” showed Malcolm McLaren and crew dressed in the “Buffalo Girls / Nostalgia Of Mud” collection of his then wife Vivienne Westwood, today most known for the over-sized Buffalo hat, worn by Pharell Williams. The hat was inspired by “Peruvian women wearing bowler hats and full skirts, dancing with their babies tied on their back.” said Vivienne Westwood in an interview in 1983.
With his sonic essay on “Duck Rock”, Berlin based DJ, producer and Man Recordings label-head Daniel Haaksman revisits “Duck Rock” and presents an extended and alternate version of the album, including footage from TV features, interviews with Malcolm McLaren, Trevor Horn and his wife, alternate takes and versions of songs of “Duck Rock” plus unreleased fragments from the World Famous Supreme Team Show that was the founding frame for the “Duck Rock” album.

Mixpak Records and Man Recordings are two labels with a shared, global perspective. Brooklyn based Mixpak has established itself as a proponent of Caribbean music worldwide, while Berlin label Man Recordings specializes in regional electronic styles from the Southern hemisphere.
With both labels twisting styles & defying genre expectations, their strong natural connection has already led to artistic crossover, both having independently released tracks from Poirier, Douster, Schlachthofbronx, So Shifty & Wildlife. Following an ingenious & humorous idea spawned by Hat N Hoodie boss, Alex Wahl, an official collision of the two labels has resulted in “PAK MAN”, a collaborative compilation EP that brings together like-minded producers from both sides.
To start, Murlo and Wildlife ride a heavy Dembow riddim through contemporary UK clubland on “Control,” quoting Grime and Jacking House along the way. A diva screams, a square wave pulses, and the crowd goes crazy.
Poirier and Douster’s effort explores ragga vibes, melding bits of Dancehall and Soca into one skipping whole, accented by a hyper sharp acid synth that takes the whole piece out of the beach and into outer space.
Mixpak and Man bosses, Dre Skull and Daniel Haaksman, combine for a frantic track called “Split Screen,” a Power Soca track trapped in a Tron-style neon vortex, which barrels along at breakneck speed until the inevitable system crash and reboot disrupts the VR.
Munich and Miami team up for Jubilee and Schlachthofbronx’s driving “Go Deh,” which builds tension before unloading into a dancehall-quoting Miami Bass thunderstorm of alarms and lasers.
Milangeles and So Shifty’s collaborative effort “Dembele” gets its name from the talented musician who lent his balaphone skills to the track. A spirited and melodic effort steeped in the traditions of both African and Caribbean music, “Dembele” has its feet firmly planted in the now.
“PAK MAN” is a smart connection between two labels with similar loves. There is nothing forced about the meta-eclecticism of “PAK MAN,” but there is plenty of new and exciting music that points in many different directions while still staying respectful to its source material. This is global dance music for 2014 — the product of unexpected collaboration and complete freedom.

2014 marks the ten year anniversary of Daniel Haaksman´s compilation “Rio Baile Funk Favela Booty Beats” which was originally released on CD (and limited edition 12″ vinyl) on Essay Recordings in August 2004 (Cat Nr. Ay 04).
When released, “Rio Baile Funk Favela Booty Beats” was the first compilation to introduce the mad beats from Rio´s hillside slums, the favelas, to a global audience. Baile Funk took the world by storm and the compilation received wide critical acclaim.
Ten years later, the compilation is widely considered as the major international reference and compilation of baile funk featuring the biggest tunes of the genre from the early 00s.
Today, the genre is still in full bloom and has diversified in various sub-genres such as funk ostentação, proibidão, rasterinha amongst others. Also, it has been adapted by many gringo producers from Europe, Asia and the Americas, which fused elements of baile funk with trap, house, electro and various bass music genres.
Now Daniel put the compilation in a continuous mix on his Soundcloud. Listen to it below.
