March 2012 Mix

Quite a bassy Londoney affair last month for me, of course accompanied by a dash of European and American bass music from French Fries’ ballroom influenced ‘Yo Vogue’ to Helix’s Night Slugs white label 505 rave extravaganza ‘Drum Track’ (renamed ‘No Hook No BS’ as the vocalised version with MC Flirta D). Get all these tracks wherever you can. Peace.

Its a tribal thang

Tribal, tropical, kuduro, funky, afro beats all overlap in drum style. Going against house’s simple four to the floor beat. It sounds African to me, to others South American and some even Londonish! Well after more than a year of exposure to the colourful style in house today, I’ve certainly turned out a happier man because of it.  We’ve had the beautifully ethnic sampled wonders, banging bleepers and funky house of London all sharing that sexy beat and percussion sound that really gets you moving.  I thought I’d unload some tracks on you showing the diversity of the beat. Also thrown in a few electro house tracks and a cheeky dubber. Does anyone else hate saying “dubstep” now? Noddy know-nothings have ruined the word for me. Bastards.

Happy happy tunes

The original of this track has already been posted, and the Chimpo remix, their both tight. But check funky house hero Roska’s remix, its ridiculously happy and danceable. One of the best bassline’s I’ve heard in a while despite its subtlety, a sexy beat and the sick vocals of Zed Bias makes this one of my tunes of the year so far.

ZED BIAS – NEIGHBOURHOOD 09 (ROSKA REMIX)

 

This next one I discovered whilst checking out Camel’s February chart. Another ridiculously happy house tune with a more simple but sick bassline. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!
