As I commented on a previous post I’m totally in love with Lauren Flax‘s first single You’ve Changed featuring vocals by the lovely and mystical Sia (zero 7), my first love has always been house music and listening to a fresh new house track like this just make me very happy! . The single will be released on Alexander Techniques new label DANR. It will be a beatport exclusive for 2 weeks then it will be everywhere else. Remixes will follow in a few weeks after the initial release by Junior Sanchez, Larry T, Alexander Technique, Angel Alanis, Dre Skull, Dances With White Girls and Lauren herself. She actually send us the original version for you readers to download, feel free to comment!

>BAOBAB CONNECTION VOL.2

>

Again through the wonders of myspace I got to know about Chief Boima some months ago… I sent him a message and we talked briefly…I asked him I would like to post something about his music on this blog, that was that. That was that until last week when Boima message me with a great surprise…Baobab Connection Volume 2!

Chief Boima was born in Milwaukee, USA, from a European-American mother and West African from Sierra Leone father. He grew up in a small but strong West African community inside a very midwest industrial US city. Where he was influenced by both majority communities of African-American and European-American (majority German descendants.) Then after some studying, traveling, djing and playing in bands of every style, He ended up in San Francisco where he found the Baobab family together with Marco Senghor (of French and Senegalese ancestry), Sogui So Good (born in Paris but moved to Senegal in his teenage days) and DJ Elembe (who is originally from Cameroon). Little Baobab holds down every night for not only the bay area’s African population but also, the greater international community who are drawn to the diverse mix of music and open door policy.

The Baobab Connection Volume 2 (60 mins duration) showcases the music you will hear at The Little Baobab (in San Francisco) coupe decale mixed with hip hop and Latin, Caribbean music and lots of lots more!… the first 30 mins are mixed by Chief Boima and the last 30 mins by Sogui So Good with help from DJ Elembe.

Here’s a teaser of the mix:

A few weeks ago I received a myspace message from Down Under…Sven Simulacrum was asking me how was London Town…I replied that London is on fire…its true, LDN never stops and there’s always something good happening music related.
I checked the music he’s got on his profile and some of his “friends”…I liked what I heard and wanted you to listen to it and to know more about this Mc/Producer.
In his own words… “Born in South Asia / Made in Australia. Sydney based mix n mash slasher selecta brings chutney rebel baile bass bhangra bashment bump n grime. DIY/diaspora/culture clash!”

>BOUNCE CAMP!

>

The wonders of myspace! the other day I was surfing…myspacing…and came across the BOUNCE CAMP, I liked his stuff so I thought in feature him on this blog!
His productions really bring back the 90’s sound mixed with the freshness of today, as his name says his tunes can make us bounce all the way!

Finnish producer/DJ Sampo Hanninen a.k.a. Bounce Camp has been making music since his pre-teens. His musical style varies from a afro-karelian cut-up booty-soul to mash-ups, elektro, house and whatever comes in between these. He has also been a part of a monthly club craze in Helsinki, called Solarium. Recently he has moved to Berlin and is into making mash-ups, juke and baltimore tracks. His track “Big Dancin'” is to be released on Helsinki-based Top Billin records next month. (soon available from www.turntablelab.com)
