FREDERIC GALLIANO….THE GODFATHER OF KUDURO IN THE WEST?

June 2, 2009

FREDTo many of us KUDURO became a familiar byword for cutting edge African dance music with the arrival of BURAKA SOM SISTEMA.

However, it’s arguable that the Western GODFATHER of it all is the GREAT French DJ/Producer FREDERIC GALLIANO.

Indeed the first time I’d ever heard the word KUDURO some years ago…the name FREDERIC GALLIANO closely followed behind.

You can read up more about this on his MY SPACE and also listen to some of his great cuts on there too.  You can also catch a good interview with him going back to 2007 HERE.

THE FREDERIC GALLIANO KUDURO SOUND SYSTEM (check out their own blog) has a new album dropping in July on the EMI label…KUDURO GOES MAJOR!!!!!

This is something to really look forward to.  It’s going to be  in the format of  a DJ MIX and will contain brand new cuts of KUDURO in the FG KUDURO SOUND SYSTEM stylee…

You can hear some KUDURO SOUND SYSTEM cuts here at their MY SPACE.

Here’s a great vid to get you into the mood and check out the album when it drops…WE CANNOT WAIT FOR IT.


DANCE to the CUMBIA!!

June 1, 2009

I’ve had a lot of questions, mainly by girls, how to dance to CUMBIA. Well, first of all, just let your heart guide your hips and get hypnotised by the rhythm. But if that won’t give you any results, check out these great videos. Not only great music, but smooth dancing as well!

mmm, and the silly dress-up like in that last one? mmm… dont.

SNAKECHARMER…..BASSNECTAR DROPS IT AGAIN!

May 10, 2009

Man I can’t believe that we did a post on our homie, BASSNECTAR without providing you all with a FREE DOWNLOAD of his LEGENDARY “SNAKECHARMER” track, which is co-credited to KRADDY.

Here’s the BOOTLEG VERSION that’s been doing the rounds for a few years now but to me it still sounds as fresh as the day it first  came out, which I think was in or about 2004/2005.  DOWNLOAD IT HERE.

There’s also a few other GREAT BOOTLEG GOODIES you can download too including an unbelievable GROOVE ARMADA smash up called SUPERSTYLIN’ RIGHT HERE

SPOILT ROTTEN!!!!!

GENERATION BASS cannot stress to you how much you really need to check this dude out. His productions are top-notch and he is a name to watch out for in the imminent future having already caught the imagination of an adoring and huge BASSNECTAR following all over the BAY AREA in the USA and further afield.

As a bonus treat, man we spoil you too much!!!!  Here’s the Bellydance world’s leading and most respected star, RACHEL BRICE shimmying her way through this GREAT TRACK.


ZUZUKA….THE PRINCESS OF BAILE FUNK GOES ELEKTRO LOCO

May 8, 2009

The Princess of Baile Funk Zuzuka Poderosa, is back but with a bit of an Elektro Loco bang, which ain’t no bad thing! This HOT vid features the dançarina Açaí Girl and the new track is called “Entra e Sai,” and it’s a sneak preview of what Princess Zuzuka has cookin’ with her new album! No real tamborzão to be heard on this new track but it’s good to see artists diversifying their sound and and trying new things,  so a BIG UP!

Yours truly were just lucky enough to get a BIG KISS from Princess Z and so just watch it and weep 🙂
