No Lazy Body

Hoping you all had properly debaucherous Halloween weekend festivities. I had a great time breaking in the dancefloor with the first substantial crowd we’ve had yet here at Hotel Vagabond in Singapore, where I’m resident DJ for 2 months. I was also very happy to link up with some local DJ’s here who are similarly focussed on spreading good vibes and throwing fun events- which means I’ve also already raided some tunes from their crates! This week I’m keeping it pretty tropical, with dancehall, afrobeats, and some deep afro-house and techno sounds. Artwork has been jacked once again from Eugenia Loli.

Taiwan MC :       Tell Dem big tune from the latest retro-dancehall riddim by Polish producer Dreadsquad

Konshens :       Couple Up &       Show Yourself not-so-new, but still slaying, from one of Jamaica’s current top ranking

Demarco :       Lazy Body ft. Hotta Maestro more from Jamaica- this hook is just so on point.

MC Galaxy ft. Davido :       Nek-Unek taking things over to Nigeria for some recent afrobeats

Jose Marquez ft. Kakatsitsi :       Belebo deep roots house flavor from SeƱor Marquez who continues to stay in the pocket

Randomer :       Juju randomly stumbled upon this UK techno producer who went really tribal on this new track

Mory Kante :       Yeke Yeke (Afro Acid Mix)
original mix by Martyn Young from the 1987 12″ that was waaaay ahead of its time. Thank you Lady Flic for this one and thanks to Dean Sunshine Smith for the info.

Jahdan Blakkamoore x Deejay Theory x Kush Arora :       Definitely BIG collabo from some homies you may know, grab the entire EP and support good music

Sauvage FM & Remi L :       Habib! heavy hitting kuduro business taken from this free LowUp comp

DJ Balani :       Balani Sanga new electronic sounds from Mali, grab the whole collection from Sahel Sounds

Clap! Clap! :       Liberty this Italian guy keeps on killing beats with vintage African field recordings

Jil Jilala :       Kouna Kountoum (Sabo & Goldclap Black Rock Edit) nice mid-tempo desert slow-burn from the vibe quest maestro

    I enjoy a visit to your blog from time to time, but I have to correct you , Yeke Yeke is no rework – The afro acid mix was Martyn youngs original remix from 1987 : ) I’ve had that in my bag all those years. Keep up the fun sounds bro! x

    wow thanks for the info Dean! I just ended up at that link from a quick google search, which happens sometimes when I’m given mp3’s. I can’t believe that mix if from 87!!! Still sounds so fresh.

    WORD UP CHUCK! X X

    I just could NOT believe my eyes when I saw Mory Kante’s Yeke Yeke on the list. Back in the 80s even I thought this sound was too much for the masses. I never listenned to it again until now, thanks to you all for such a gem!
