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.. 🙂

BURAKA vs KUDURO vs ANGOLA!

April 19, 2009

burakaThis cut by BURAKA just got remixed by House producer that lives in PORTUGAL and he makes it sound even less like KUDURO. Somehow this got shared by KUDUROPODFILES though… Anyways I wanted to share this because the developments concerning original, remix and copy, as well as influences on scenes are something that always interest me. but it’s a bit weak. here ya go!

JOHNY RODRY vs BURAKA – YAH REMIX


RDX vs MURKLE – DANCEHALL TECH RMX!

April 18, 2009

senor-frogs-dancing-1My man MURKULES from MURKLE blog just dropped this steaming hot remix of an RDX track I shared last week. This is real dancefloor stuff, and will work well to get white folks to start doing stupid dancemoves… Check it out right here:

RDX – SET GOOD (MURKELES HOTTA FIRE MIXXX)


ZOMBIE AUTOTUNE DANCEHALL…

April 18, 2009

zombieJust got this through the great GET SPLASTIQUE. It appears my boy DIPLO had a lot of fun with SWITCH while recording their MAJOR LAZER tracks. “Me a fake jamaican and me smoke cocaine” and “Me rather eat your brain than your pussy” are rather blunted parts of this lyrical odessy… Check the madness out here:

MAJOR LAZER – ZUMBI
