THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE LOVE MAN!!! 🙂

Just like to make one important amendment to the above post on the Simon Iddol page, that is, Shisha Sound System is no more.  Our last DJ mix was “GLOBAL ELEKTRO” which has been getting smashed all over BBC Radio 1 recently (including on the LEGENDARY PETE TONG SHOW), thanks to Bobby Friction. 🙂

“THE BASSWRECKERS” (me and Vince The Prince)  is what I’m up to right now….Shisha was good fun but all good things must come to an end 🙂


ESSAOUIRA JAMBASH….PART 2

May 20, 2009

_MG_3571

To get you further into the mood for The Essaouira Jambash, here’s a vintage and authentic Moroccan Gnawa cut from one of Morocco’s most popular Gnawa artists of modern times: HAMID EL KASRI:

hamid el kasri – syndiya

Gnawa music is a fusion of Arab, Berber and African rhythms. It is powerful trance music that goes back to the 16th century and has gained international popularity over the last few years.

If you want to hear what’s  going on in Morocco today with it’s Reggae, Rock, Hip-Hop, Funk and Pop hybrids then grab a copy of my ‘EXPERIENCE MOROCCO’ compilation which went on worldwide release last year.  You can pick that up from most on-line retailers, Amazon, Play etc etc.

You know homies’, if it were up to me and all the artists agreed, I’d let you download the full album but sorry I can’t.  BTW, it also includes a 40 page TRAVEL GUIDE written by yours truly AND…..AND…WAIT FOR IT….AND the actual ORIGINAL version of the track behind THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS “GALVANIZE”…..You can hear it on my Experience Morocco MY SPACE.

MAROCSTOCK

Also as an added bonus, for those of you into more traditional forms of Moroccan music, you can take a sneak preview listen to a very, very, rough demo version of a mix I have done called “MAROCSTOCK” (Yes, a Moroccan Woodstock).

Sorry it’s not downloadable yet, as I’m hoping it will be released commercially later this year or early next year albeit with a different set of tracks (subject to licensing) and in a more refined ‘mixed” form.

LISTEN TO MAROCSTOCK AT FAIRTILIZER

Hey calling all DJ’s….Are you going to be in Morocco between 24 June 2009 and 29 June 2009?

If you are, do you want to DJ at an off-festival event called ‘ESSAOUIRA JAMBASH’?

If so, then you need to get in touch with my good mate, U-CEF who is the guy coordinating the event.

You can contact Morocco’s leading European based hip-hop artist, U-Cef, via the following methods:

FACEBOOK GROUP

Here’s what he says:

“TO ALL DJS, GET IN TOUCH IF YOU “WILL” BE IN ESSAOUIRA DURING THE GNAWA FESTIVAL, SO GET YOU SPINNING SETS IN VARIOUS VENUES BETWEEN ESSAOUIRA & MARRAKECH. IF YOU’RE INTERESTED PLEASE GET IN TOUCH. $MALL FEE$ FOR GIGS…

I (DJ UMB), for one, WILL BE THERE! 🙂

To get you into the mood, here’s a great track that my homie, Jace Clayton aka DJ RUPTURE, posted recently on his great blog MUDD UP!

It’s an instrumental version of a track that I’ve never heard before and man I have loads of Moroccan music.  So nice one Jace for diggin’ this up, a phenomenal track!

DJ UMB DROPS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH AGAIN!!!!!

May 12, 2009

2532784282_abf95b8a1a

My homie, the GREAT MAN, who created this AMAZING blog, ‘VINCE THE PRINCE’ posted this item a few months back.

BUT I thought  it might be cool and could do with a repost because for me, it in many ways;

EXEMPLIFIES THE GENERATION BASS EXPERIENCE!

Also it gives you all a good idea as to what’s exciting me most DJ-WISE at the minute.  BUT I WARN YOU, I am very diverse.

So I hope you don’t mind and I hope my homie doesn’t mind too.

So here it is again but this time together with VOLUME 2, which has not been posted B4 🙂

GLOBAL GHETTOTECH VOL 1 & 2  (Mostly improv, both -1 cut & 1st take-PIONEER CDJ 1000 MKII & PIONEER DJM600-Man I need an upgrade, I think)

GRAB VOL1 HERE:

AND VOL 2 HERE:

Will be doing a VOLUME 3 SOON!

WHAT IS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH?

According to Wikipedia, Global Ghettotech is a “an intentionally sardonic term coined by ethnomusicologist Wayne Marshall, describes a loosely-defined aggregate of club and sound system-based music from around the world…….Global ghettotech is not a world music-style celebration of exotic sounds, but DJ mixable hybrids constructed from drum machines and synths available the world over. This music is designed to hit hard on the dancefloor, not background conversation at your local café. These musical genres are inspired by the organ-rattling bass of massive speaker towers, sexually-charged dancers, and fierce (even violent) rivalries between local MCs, DJs and producers”.

BTW WAYNE MARSHALL AKA WAYNE WAX HAS CONFIRMED HIS APPROVAL OF THIS MIX AS BEING INDICATIVE OF HIS PHRASE.. 🙂
