Bongos and cowbells

More and more ethnicity is coming into the forefront of house and were loving it. Syncopating bongos, infectious cowbells and the renowned afro-beat are a few aspects of this tribal/funky house business I only came to terms with a few months ago. One new artist, first brought to my attention by Squeegie Sounds blog (as per usual), is French Fries with a fresh, unadulterated take on tribal house. His remixes of The Bloody Beetroots and The Very Best (Radioclit side project) show afro happiness, whilst the original is more of a techy bleeper. If you’re into this scene, you’ll love this.

FRENCH FRIES – COCONUT FT. BAMBONOU

THE BLOODY BEETROOTS – THEOLONIUS (FRENCH FRIES REMIX)

THE VERY BEST – WARM HEART OF AFRICA (FRENCH FRIES REMIX)

 

One of my favourite artists at the moment, and a hot tip for the future is Beataucue. Tribal/tech/electro, can’t really place him. One simple consistency I find with his music however is a proper thumping bass drum which really boosts the whole sound. This remix of funky boy Solo is no different whilst also incorporating a punchy high synth.

SOLO – RAWMANIA (BEATAUCUE REMIX)

 

Round table Knights! Nuff said.

SOLO – MINIMOOD (ROUND TABLE KNIGHTS REMIX)

 

This remix by English funksters Zombie Disco Squad is absolutely bongo ridden! Get yo funk on bitch!

DROP THE LIME – SET ME FREE (ZOMBIE DISCO SQUAD REMIX)

 

This minimix by DJ Manaia isn’t quite the ambassador for bongos and cowbells, but it does reek of afro-beat. I’d especially like to point out the unreleased original track ‘King Kong’ which is a fucking nasty evil banger! Look for the 20 minute mark.
