DJ Reaganomics x Atomic Hangover

Some things are just too good for words this is one of them, I’ll let the producer explain how he came up with this inspired jam.

once again, thanks goes out to the ultimate digger, Fabien, for posting this totally dope tune called “Atomic Jazz” by Atomic Jazz of Africa. i just had to cut it up. Add vocals by my favorite atomic band Buraka Som Systema, and its a dream team all the way.

World Carnival #2

Hipsters Dont Dance World Carnival #2 Mix

7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.

Santigold x Big Mouth

Well hello Santigold, it’s been a while, we’ve missed you. You have now come back with Big Mouth, a free track which you can get by signing up to her mailing list, produced by Switch and Buraka Som Sistema. Well, its actually an interpolation of Buraka’s excellent Up All Night and some classic floating stabs with some fantastic Brazilian samba drums. all of that tied up with Santigold’s vocal style makes for one hell of a track. It’s sure to be a big hit entering this New Year.
