MAN 079 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT CORÉON DU - LEMBA REMIXES

Lemba Rx

While the original version of Daniel Haaksman´s “Lemba” ft. Coréon Dú is still getting heavy club play around the world, we present you two amazing remixes of the Angolan-German collaboration.

The Swiss wonder boys of house music, the Round Table Knights from Berne (of Made To Play and Exploited fame) were such fans of the original “Lemba” version, that they put a lot of effort in their bouncy remix. Re-examining the clap loop of the original, the Roundies added a slick bass and fidgety sounds and gave “Lemba” a serious Euro club treatment.

The second remix comes from the Dizona Crew a.k.a. the DZC Deejays of Setubal in Portugal. The producer and DJ collective, which recently turned heads with their seminal “Tarraxo Na Parede” track and various club friendly remixes between Kuduro, Funana and Tarraxo. DZC Deejays, shaped “Lemba” into a percussion heavy, Afro house inspired tune.

MAN 077 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT. CORÉON DÚ “LEMBA”

MAN 077 DANIEL HAAKSMAN FT. CORÉON DÚ "LEMBA"

man-077

2012 was a busy year for Man Recordings boss Daniel Haaksman. First, he started his own weekly radio show „Luso FM“, focussing on eletronic dance music from the Portugese speaking world, i.e. countries like Angola, Brasil, Mozambique or Portugal on German public radio „Funkhaus Europa“.

Parallely, Daniel produced remixes for Kry Wolf, Lord Nelson, So Shifty, Makina Del Karibe and Bonde Do Role?, and also released his “Rambazamba Remixed” album, plus his much acclaimed compilation of Brasilian Tecno Brega. In between, Daniel travelled the globe DJing, including Angola to play at “Unia?o Electronica” festival. While out clubbing in Angola ?s capitol Luanda, Daniel instantly fell in love with the city ?s local house sound.

The Luanda house sound is called Ku House (a mixture of Kuduro and House). The „Ku“ in „Kuduro“ (literally meaning „hard ass“) stands for booty. Besides, Angolan house is in dialogue with local music styles as well as the South African style of house music. Far from the raging, raved up vibes of current European ghetto club music, Angolan house tunes add a subtle form of deepness, mixed with frantic beats and hypnotic Portugese vocals.

Thus for his brand new single, Daniel teamed up with Angolan singer and culture impressario Core?on Du? and produced “Lemba”, originally a Semba tune on a lavish woman named Lemba. Core?on Du? is the brains behind the popular Angolan reality-style dance competition programme „Bounce“, also running „Os Kuduristas“, an internationally travelling roadshow programme promoting Angola’s unique kuduro style of rapping and dancing.

„Lemba“ is a unique Berlin-Luanda cooperation of Afro house made with a minimalist Berlin twist. Featuring a plain, percussive beat, a speaker busting sub-bass, a subtle arpeggio and the beautiful voice of Core?on Du?, this stripped down track has all it takes to become the big cross-culture club tune of spring 2013. This is a tune that could easily be played both at Berlin ?s Berghain club and Berlin ?s street carnival, the “Carneval Of Cultures”. Yes, it ?s both for house heads and barefoot dancers.

But then that ?s what Daniel Haaksman ?s music is always about: Establishing cultural bridges and sonic exchanges, incorporating the legacy of European bass music, while keeping a keen eye on the dancefloor. Drop “Lemba” and you ?ll feel Daniel Haaksman ?s vision.
