MAN 101 Freak De L´Afrique "Mama Eh"

Man 101

Berlin, the capital of Germany, has birthed a new sound: Berlin Afro House. Yes, you wouldn´t associate the techno focussed city with an African diasporic community nor with the rhythmical magic tracks that currently emerge from countries such as Angola, South Africa or Mozambique. Yet, a small but very well connected group of DJs and party promoters recently put Berlin on the international Afro House map.

With their monthly party-series such as “The Afro House Experience” or “Black Paper” the Berlin based DJs Mista Wallizz and Cambel Nomi have created a unique set of club nights that focus on the current club sounds emerging from across Africa that re-define the club sound of Berlin. Not being satisfied with their successful nights and increasing international DJ bookings, Wallizz and Cambel decided to start their own artist project and called it Freak de l´Afrique (The freak from Africa). The debut single is here now, and it´s called “Mama Eh”. In this club banger you hear the best of Afro House clashing with the melodies of UK grime and the grumpy attitude for which Berlin has become internationally known.

Cambel and Wallizz travel regularly to Luanda, a global capital for Afro House Music, and recently they also shot the video for “Mama eh” there together with the local dance community.

FREAK DE L´AFRIQUE

Of course “Mama Eh” is released on Man Recordings, Berlin´s only record label championing club sounds from the Southern hemisphere for more than a decade. Two remixes accompany the single release. First up is Jowaa from Accra in Ghana, the producer and DJ team consisting of Benjamin Lebrave of Akwaabaa Records and Accra allround talent Gafacci. The second remix dives into deep Afro house with X-Trio from Luanda, Angola who smoothed out the in your face sound of the original into tribal territories. A stunning debut track plus two hot remixes – Freak De L´Afrique are here to stay!

MAN 081 DANIEL HAAKSMAN – TOMA QUE TOMA

MAN 081 DANIEL HAAKSMAN - TOMA QUE TOMA

Daniel Haaksman -081

With “Toma Que Toma” Europe´s Nr.1 baile funk lover, Daniel Haaksman, returns with a club bomb that is hardly resistable.

With an accordeon sound nicked from a Tarantela tune off a Spaghetti Western soundtrack, plus the trademark 808 snare roll of baile funk and the demand to “Toma Que Toma”, this track will not only be moving bundas to the ground, but packing dancefloors alike.

“Toma Que Toma” is a ubiquious saying in both Spanish and Portuguese language and was often sampled by Rio funk producers. It literally translates to “Get you some” or “Take the take” or “Drink for drink”.

Besides the party-blowing original mix, the single comes with an A1 pack of currently much hyped remixers. The remixes are kicked off by Bot, formerly of Crookers fame and now part of the Main Course collective alongside Astronomar and Neoteric, who went Jersey club style with his version of “Toma Que Toma”. Super hot Italian stallions, Milangeles, shaped Haaksman´s tune into their trademark juke-meets-polka bounce flavour. Then it´s São Paulo´s trap dons Tropkillaz who put “Toma Que Toma” on the tropical bass down low. Last but not least, it´s Waldo Squash of Belem´s Gang Do Eletro who dissolved “Toma Que Toma” into a bouncy Tecno Brega remix.

Four sizzling hot remixes, plus an original mix ready to instantly tropicalize any club, and make the crowd go “Toma Que Toma!”
