If you ever wondered who inspired Pharell Williams to wear a giant Canadian ranger hat – here´s the answer: It´s an homage to the sartorial style in the 1982 hip-hop video “Buffalo Girls” by Malcolm McLaren and the World’s Famous Supreme Team. A year ago, Daniel Haaksman made a mix celebrating the album on which “Buffalo Gals” appeared, the “Duck Rock” album. Originally released on a limited edition analogue tape (which has sold out in the Man Rec online store), Daniel´s mix on Malcolm McLaren´s seminal – and highly underrated – 1980s album is now finally released digitally. Listen to it here:

Daniel Haaksman´s “Sabado” tune ft. Bulldozer has turned a lot of heads on dancefloors around the world since its release earlier this year with its perfect blending of afro vibes, champeta licks and tropical beats. Now the big tune gets a high quality four-pack remix treatment. In classic Man Recordings fashion, the remix EP comes with four differently tempo and style versions from around the world.

Londons garage bass dons LV, of which Daniel has been a long time fan, deliver an high powered island version of “Sabado” that will rock any party carnival style. South African hot ticket of the moment, Aero Manyelo, twisted “Sabado” into a township style house tune. Remix number three comes from Boogaloo, a long time insider´s tip from Lisbon. For their version, they removed “Sabado”´s original melody and remade it in tropical house fashion. The EP gets perfectly rounded up by the dembow inspired version of UK´s Castro who lately rose to prominence in the global bass scene with his releases on Enchufada records.

Four amazing remixes that can be played in all kinds of DJ sets : Daniel Haaksman´s “Sabado” tune is here to stay in crates and dancefloors all summer!

DJ feedback:

Switch “LV remix = Tite!”

Man 086 Cover Small

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.

DANIEL HAAKSMAN

“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”.

Early DJ support by Crookers, Poirier, Toy Selectah, Round Table Knights, So Shifty, Samim, DJ Sabo, Shir Khan (Exploited) and many more!
