ARTIST: DANIEL HAAKSMAN
TITLE: WHO’S AFRAID OF REMIX?
CAT Nr.: MAN 033
DIGITAL RELEASE DATE: SEPT. 26TH, 2008
VINYL RELEASE DATE: OCT. 17TH, 2008

With „Who’s Afraid Of Remix?“ Man Rec label boss Daniel Haaksman returns with four club ready remixes of his debut EP „Who’s Afraid Of Rio.

The remix EP kicks off with „Parolar De Veso“ remixed by Ku Bo from Vienna. In his remix, Ku Bo continues his explorations in Afro-Brazilian music territories and mounts the lyrics of Rio De Janeiro’s MC crew Sd Boys onto an uptempo dancehall beat that sparkles dark and sexy in atmosphere. Occasional Bahian Samba eruptions mark the Brazilian vibe in this outstanding sonic reinterpretation.

Scottie B, the kingpin of hot hot Baltimore Club, puts „Parolar De Veso“ in a his trademark minimalist breakbeat booty shape. To a thundering bassdrum, a choir of ghetto thugz chant their support for the mad lyrics of SD Boys.

The remixes on the B-Side are dedicated to „Who’s Afraid Of Rio?“ feat Rio based MC Jennifer. The first version is by Italian allround producer Riva Starr, who provided a bassline heavy, funky broken beat remix with a slick Brazilian touch. Riva Starr regularly releases on SF techno prankster label Dirty Bird (home to Claude Von Stroke and Martin Brothers). Daniel Haaksman has been a longtime fan of his tracks and remixes.

The EP gets finally rounded up by the DJ Beware remix of „Who’s Afraid Of Rio?“. The Hongkong born and raised turntablist champ, who co-released the landmark „Rio Baile Funk Breaks“ album on Man Recordings with Daniel, recontextualises the Haaksman hymn as a Afroesque, West London tune, with a perky beat and great synth melodies.

Four great, musically diverse remixes that are ready for any DJ play: „The Who’s Afraid Of Remix?“ EP by Daniel Haaksman is another essential DJ tool by Man Recordings made for the dancefloor.

Volume #6 in the high calibred Funk Mundial series, who has brought us tracks by Stereotyp, Count+Sinden, Crookers, Seiji and Makossa Megablast, presents Baltimore’s finest. Yes, we are talking about Baltimore Club here, the irresistible breakbeat-based party music from the former industrial city next to Philly and DC. A city which bred a pragmatic in your face block party sound that brings together the best of both hip hop and house music.

For the first time, Baltimore meets up with Rio De Janeiro in Funk Mundials Vol #6 and the city collab surely brought some delicious dancefloor fruits for every DJ. For the newest volume in the series, Man Recordings teamed up with the top cats from Baltimore’s Unruly Records to create three irresistible Baile Funk-Baltimore hybrids.

Scottie B, undisputed crownholder of the Baltimore Club sound – who recently remixed The Rapture, Justice, Edu K and M.I.A. amongst others – pairs up with Rio based MC Moleque Bil, who is a steady member of the infamous Bonde Do Sonho, a fierce baile funk crew regularly block rocking favelas in the North Zone of Rio De Janeiro. In „Mais Ela“ Bil sings about a party loving girl who gives her bootie away to anyone that makes her dance right. In his trademark fashion, Scottie B twists the voice of Bil into a mad staccato and brings in the right beats. King Tutt, another Bmore legend, put Moleque Bil´s vocals unto a more straight beat, which equally causes dancefloor mayhem.

The flipside of the release sees upcoming Baltimore talent Say Wut, who teamed up with the gifted young MC GUS, who hails from Laranjeras in Rio De Janeiro, and is a steady collaborator of MC Gringo. For “Vai Sentari”, Say Wut stepped up the common Bmore flavour into a funky break beat monster, that shines with MC Gus’ beatboxing and an irresistible bassline.

ARTIST: EDU K
TITLE: GATAS GATAS GATAS
CAT. Nr.: Man 018
DIGITAL RELEASE: OCT 8th, 2007
VINYL RELEASE: Nov 2nd, 2007

With „Gatas Gatas Gatas“ baile funk don EDU K returns with a huge splash. The four track EP features remixes by Crookers, Scottie B, and Chernobyl.

For this single we had to go temporarily commercial: „Gatas Gatas Gatas“ comes as an accompanying release to the campaign for the new Sony Ericsson mobile phone, which features Edu K’s love declaration to all the girls in the world. Together with his baby brother and Co MC Chilli he declares „I love them all, brown or tall, big or small“. What better lyrics could a song carry?

The music video to the release was directed by director Bryan Barber (the director of Outkast’s „Hey ya“ video) Think of Falco’s „Rock Me Amadeus“ in a 21st century baile funk rewind.

The EP release „Gatas Gatas Gatas“ („Cats, Cats, Cats“) comes with three banging remixes. Italy’s hot ticket Crookers, who recently remixed Armand Van Helden, Chemical Brothers and Bonde Do Role, twisted Edu K’s song into a ravey, booty house bomb which will burn the big dancefloors. The Scottie B remix puts the club horns to the front, and created a classic Baltimore Club version. This could be called the first Baltimore-Baile Funk Clash ever. Last but not least, there’s the DJ Chernobyl baile funk remix.

Three remixes, the original track – this EP, backed by an incredible video will surely push „Gatas Gatas Gatas“ as one of the major club hits of this autumn.
