On Saturday join me at Get Rude with The Zombie Disco Squad and The Bulgarian to hear white hot baile at excessive volumes.

I Want Candy

Some quality summertime mixes :

Some serious London action from Faggatronix mixing up UKG and electrocrunk freshness. This should be more popular than funky ‘ouse right now.

Word The Cat tears it up with African, Bashment and Bassline garage.

Some random old Paul Devro mix in full pardy effect.

Disco Devil, a hot reggae blog from Brazil comes in with a Rodigan Dublate mix.

Zombie Disco Squad talk frankly about Bassline Booty & Baile.

Bonde Do Blog

Radioclit, Amanda Blank & Bonde Do Role. The world’s first Blog music supergroup ? No thankfully. Instead of jazzy improvisation they went with drinking large quantities of alcohol and shouting over kuduro. It was good.

Portugal+Angola= Firepower

Yesterday I had my eardrums nearly blown out by Buraka Som Sistema in a very hot, small, sweaty tent at Lovebox. And I can safely say they are not fucking around. Oh. My. God. My man hit it HARD. They didn’t even have Petty and the dancers. Just one guy playing a set of sub-bass, acid tweaking Kuduro bombs. It was awesome and had me grinning like a fool for the entire set. I think alot of the stuff was Buraka productions and it really comes alive on a (Mad) decent soundsystem. He even dropped some grime in the middle of the set. Strong. If they come to your town, don’t even think about not going.

Tierra del Fuego

Straight off the parrilla, another flame grilled slice of Argentinian cumbia soaked in Chimichurri. Chancha Via Circuito is on the hype screwed and chopped tip.

Chancha Via Circuito – Cumbia Malembe

And from Bolivia, more sleepy cumbia beats from another Argentinian, Sonido Martines. He’s doing a mix for Rupture’s excellent new radio show on 18th Juy.

Sonido Martines – Vuela Pajarito Rebajado

Yet more heat from Argentina, check Princesa. She’s hammering the barrios with her fiesty Reggaeton-dancehall. Lots of downloadable beats on her myspace.

Princesa – I Feel So Good

Montreal Does It

Monsiuer Poirier has been having some illegal fun with Khiasma from Masala and Sixtoo throwing a rave out the back of a van under a bridge somewhere in Montreal. Video here. If you did that in London, everyone would be shot by the police. Probably.

Ghislain also sent me this bhangra soca beauty. Like Matterhorn on holiday in Goa. I know its been on a few blogs already so this is for the snoozers. Carnival Banger.

Bashy Bonanza

Big up to Ray at my old work for pointing me in the direction of somwhere very special. Quite literally a ‘Bashment Market’ ! Picked up some hot new JA mixtapes. Let me share the FYA with you.

Firstly from Mavado’s Amazing Grace mixtape. Don’t know who the rapper is but its downright gold. A synth overload souldrenched anthem. If you’re not feeling this it, you’re wierd.

Mavado – Nah waan fi see me rise (Zshare)

On the addictive Spanish Town riddim from a few months ago, Cecile. A new flow and all round party starter of a tune. The beat on this just stomps along riding some hardassed flamenco strumming. Its always when I’m bored of dancehall something like this comes along. DJs – If you play this out and people don’t dance, I want my money back.

Cecile – Party (zshare)

And finally an old classic for my girl simply because she loves it.

Eric Donaldson – Cherry Oh! Baby (Zshare)

Buraka Som Sistema Vivem @ Fabric

If they are as good live as they look in this clip, then I need to catch them this summer. LDNners – They are playing on Sunday at the Lovebox festival in Victoria park.

Feeling a bit starved of Kuduro action. Can anyone point me in the right direction for some new stuff ?

H-Town Swangin’

Like last year, summertime means I can’t get enough H-Town goodness. Houston for Dummies by the untouchable DJ Ayres contains bomb after bomb. Natch for DJ Eleven’s Houston Rocks it.

Ahhh 97. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was working in the neon lit multiscreen nightmare of HMV, whiling away the hours flicking through import Hip Hop cds that I couldn’t afford..Out of the blue speed garage mixes started flying off the racks. The saturday shoppers got hammered with it. I thought the majority of tunes were pretty bit dull but some of them like Double 99′s Ripgroove & Todd Edwards bumping edits were UKG bassline classics that still sound fresh. Back then Wiley was a mere garage MC with the glint of grime in his eye – going from this to this.

So who’d a thought Sinden & Count of Monte Cristal’s new stuff is going more and more down the champagne/No trainers route ? Good thing is they’ve taken the choppy London beats, carnival sized basslines and timestretch vocals instead of the shiney shirt slickness. Nice work bolly crew.
