Following his acclaimed „Rambazamba“ album release in May 2011, Berlin ?s tropical pioneer Daniel Haaksman now returns with a remix version of his debut, aptly titled “More Rambazamba“ (a.k.a. “With a blazer”).

„More Rambazamba“ literally translated means „More Mayhem“ („Rambazamba“ is a German word for „stiring up“, „kicking up a fuss“). Ensuring instant dancefloor rage, the musical styles on this album reflect on Haaksman ?s DJ and production style: Always full of surprises, eclectic and high-powered, yet with a gentleman touch. We hear on „More Rambazamba“, to quote Wayne & Wax blog author Wayne Marshall, „creative reworkings of some time-honored Haaksman anthems“ such as „Rap Da Silva“, „Carnival“, „Jesus“ feat. Tati Quebra Barraco or „Bomba“. Marshall: „These remixes overflow with polyrhythmic joy, bumping along with little regard for genre boundaries and in the process creating even more space for winding waists — and tastes!“

The list of remixers on „More Rambazamba“ is hot and high-calibred. Highlights include: Berlin noise master Jan Driver returning with his classic remix of „Hands Up“ feat. Seguindo Sonhos, which also got retouched by Paris hyphy don French Fries. Sound Of Sumo ?s Kry Wolf laid Haaksman ?s „Carnival“ onto a bass heavy, clickety clack UK groove, Estonia ?s Bert On Beats reworked the bumpy cover version of„Din Daa Daa“ in his trademark Kuduro inspired bass style. Big Dope P of Moveltraxxx sent the Rio funk anthem „Rap Da Silva“ to Chicago for a new Juke examination. Hamburg ?s So Shifty injected beefy beats to „Bomba“ feat. Roxxxy Bione, while Chrissy Murberbot put another Chicago infused rhythm onto „Jesus“ feat. Tati Quebra Barraco. And Urbs from Vienna remixed „Rap Da Silva“ in classic JA roots fashion.

Man 066 El Dusty - K Le Pasa Remix

Man 066 K Le Pasa Remix

„K Le Pasa“ by Texas based El Dusty was released late November 2011 on Man Recordings and since has turned into a floor smashing cumbia banger that many DJs play out in clubs.

Now the remix EP is released and it´s safe to say that with the big, big remixes this release contains, the „K Le Pasa“ craze will spread much further. Again, Man Recordings presents an international, transatlantic music dialogue of the finest names in club music.


First up is Berlin´s Jan Driver of Boysnoize Records fame who shaped „K Le Pasa“ into a stadium rocking noise smasher, what is probably the most hardcore European treatment a Cumbia track ever received. Holland´s Alvaro, known for that high in demand Dutch touch remixed „K Le Pasa“ into a nasty little Moombathon track that will excite many lady´s hips. Alan Rosales & DJ Mouse of Monterrey, Mexico, slashed out the magic 3Ball ryhthm of Mexico, which fuses Cumbia with Euro house, bringing together the best elements of both sides of the pond. So Shifty from Hamburg, Germany, remixed „K Le Pasa“ into an amazing cumbiaton inspired version, which will kill all global bass oriented floors. Finally, it´s Sonora from the Peligrosa crew of Austin, Texas, who remixed El Dusty´s block rocking tune in a surprising, uptempo freestlye ghetto floor whipper.

As we have so much love for this release you can grab the banging Alvaro Moombathon remix FOR FREE (!) from here for limited time:

Five amazing remixes that range from noisy Electro to Moombathon, 3Ball Guarachero to Cumbiaton and Freestyle Ghetto, The „K Le Pasa Remix“ EP is a sure shot for every DJ!!

Our graphic designer Paul Snowden is a genius. Not only has his “Wasted German Youth” t-shirt range developed into a global brand with endless local interpretations such as “Brooklyn Wasted Youth” or “São Paulo Wasted Youth”, the slogan celebrating Berlin´s relentless after hour club culture, which has become a main tourist attraction of the German capitol. Now Paul Snowden has started a cooperation with a German beer company. The result is “Wasted German Beer”, 100% chemical free, brewed after the “Deutsche Reinheitsgebot” (“German purity law” from A.D. 1348). The launch party for the beer is today at the “Wasted German Youth” store in Berlin-Mitte, ten crates of the healthy drink will be given away from 2pm this afternoon at Memhardstrasse 1 in Mitte.


Tomorrow “Wasted German Youth” will celebrate the fourth installment of its “Rave Tut Gut” (“Rave Does Good”) party with three dancefloors of dancefloor madness. Jan Driver and myself plus a dozen other DJs are playing for zero fee and all profits will be donated to the Bjoern Schulz stiftung in Berlin to help children with cancer. Check out RAVE TUT GUT #4

Man 053 Daniel Haaksman "Hands Up Remix" EP out now!

Man 053 Cover

Man Recordings don daa daa, Daniel Haaksman, returns with a remix edition of his „Hands Up“ EP which was released in July to much DJ and radio acclaim. In the remix EP, „Hands Up“ feat. Mozambiquan female MC crew Seguindo Sonhos gets a quintruple, trans-global deluxe remix treatment, already played by DJs like Crookers, Brodinski, Fake Blood, Feadz, Toddla T and many others.

The remix EP kicks off with Jan Driver of Boys Noize Records fame, who slams Haaksman´s original track onto the floor of Panoramabar Berlin with a wall of sound-compression that would crush any concrete. Paris´new wonderkid, French Fries, brings „Hands Up“ into low-end territories with his fantastic Grime meets Hyphy rework. Emynd from Philadelphia delivers a classic, in your face Bmore remix that certainly will bring many dancefloors to the boil. The king of Monterrey Elektro Tribal Guarrachero, at just 17 years old (!) Erick Rincon, created the genre specific, shuffley Tribal Guarrachero rework, which brings „Hands Up“ into sped up Cumbia-Techno realms. And finally, Beware + Motorpitch from Vienna present a classy tropical house rework that brings Haaksman´s original track back to the Euro dancefloors. „Hands Up“ around the world!!

Bonus remixes on this EP are the legendary Bert On Beats rework of „Kid Conga“ feat. MC Miltinho – which won the Man Recordings remix contest in 2009. Plus the slammin´ reinterpretation of „Purr Na Na“ by French Electro whizkids Beataucue, which re-assembles one of the highlight tracks of the „Valeu – Celebrating 5 Years Of Man Recordings“ compilation.
