It´s been a bit more than four months since Daniel Haaksman´s “African Fabrics” album has been released and it has become a success story. “African Fabrics” was nominated for a German Music Critic prize, was praised on leading media outlets such as SPIN, NPR, XLR8R, Der Spiegel, NZZ, Songlines Magazine and Goethe Institute Podcast amongst others and has been played by countless club and radio DJs around the world.

The accompanying single releases “Sabado”, “Rename The Streets” and “Akabongi” received remix and video treatments, now the other tracks of the albums have been reworked. The result is “African Fabrics Remixes”, which presents a trans world cast of amazing remixers.

First off is South African Mo Laudi with an Afro house rendering of “Akabongi”. It´s followed by three remixes featuring the hot new Lisbon sound, starting with 2Pekes, a member of the infamous DZC Deejays crew who remixed “Sembène” in Euro kuduro fashion. Izem, also based in Lisbon, put “Kaggua” ft. Tshila on a broken beat turf. Man of the moment Dotorado is featured with his Kuduro house version of “Rename The Streets”. UK´s freestyle bass dons LV revisit “Sabado” with a London carnival mood. Then there´s São Paulo´s hot new beat talent Bad $ista who samba-funked up “Black Coffee” ft. Dama Do Bling. Another Lisbon remix contribution is by legendary Portuguese kuduro don DJ NK remaking “Xinguila” ft. Throes + The Shine in a raved up kuduro smasher. Swedish bass maestro Dance, Kill, Move tamed the original footwork monster “Aho” to a tarraxo influenced half timer. Probably the heaviest remix on “African Fabrics Remixes” is by São Paulo´s ambassador of low end schlepp beats, Cybass, who put “Afrika” ft. Tony Amado ft. Alcinda Gueraneh into madness territories. Durban´s Gqom kingpins Rudeboyz added a weighty groove to the Mbira infused “Raindrops” track, turning it into a club ready track. And finally, New Zealands Afro popster Weird Together remade “Querido” ft. Bulldozer with a UK funky inspired mood.

And there you have it, “African Fabrics Remixes”, featuring eleven diverse and club-friendly remixes that will put “African Fabrics” in further and more varied contexts. Play it out!

VINTAGE KUDURO BY DJ MARFOX & DJ N.K.

When it comes to electronic dance music, what only came out in 2006 could nowadays often be considered “vintage”. However, “vintage” in the terms of the productions of Lisbon DJs and producers DJ Marfox and DJ N.K. (spelled “N Kappa”) doesn´t necessarily mean “dated”. Their label, Principe Discos, now re-released their very first release “DJs Do Guetto” for free download, which contains early tracks by these hot Portugese producers.

Frankly, the original release nor both artists have been on our radar back in 2006, when Kuduro only was about to break international, Soundcloud didnt exist and social media was still in its infant stage. So it´s a good moment to re-release what actually still sounds pretty fresh today and to hear how the compilation´s main protagonists have matured over the years: DJ Marfox just released his debut “Subliminar” EP on Enchufada and DJ N.K. has become one of Lisbon´s top Kizomba and Afro House producers lately.
