Balanishow!

Balanishow!

In Bamako, the capital of Mali there are weekly streetparty’s being organised, so called Balanishow’s. Just rent a soundsystem, DJ’s next to it, some chairs for the older people, some lights and your done. Sahel Records released a true cassete, hi bias of Supreme Talent Show It’s a kind of a wild futuristic mix; kuduro, decale, dancehall, bass and eventrap. It might be strange to a few but the energy is pure, fresh and wild.

Buy the tape / cassette / K7 and you will get the digital version as well. Enjoy!

Neba Solo meets mps PILOT

Neba Solo meets mps PILOT

I am happy to present you the first tune of my collaboration with Neba Solo. It’s a blend of genuine ballofon music and Drum & Bass. Neba is Mali’s primary ballofone player, a national hero decorated twice for his work over there. The project has been kindly supported by Festival sur le Niger, Ségou in Mali were we recorded the tunes and performed for a crowd that went wild. The tune was premiered at Radio France International last week, hitting almost 1000 plays and is downloadable for your pleasure only.

Report Festival au Desert | 2003

Report Festival au Desert | 2003

10 Years ago this green DJ from The Lowlands of Netherlands went beserk on Tamashek musique he witnessed at the famous Sfinks festival (B). I then decided I really wanted to see a Tamashek Festival Sfinks was co-creating. The festival was somewhere deep in the desert, 60 km north of Timbuktu. In Mali. Since the start of this festival the siginificance of Malian music was only getting more and more clear to the western world. This report is aiming mainly on the Tamashek and Songhay music played there live, on and of the stages. There is even a live recording of the famous Super Onze from Gao.

The report was done for the famous Wandelende Tak program on Dutch radio / VPRO radio. It’s in dutch but its easy to skip through the short spoken parts and there are heaps of music to enjoy.

Special thanks to Walter Slosse, the main man behind De Wandelende Tak who was so kind to send me the lost VPRO file.

Super Onze – Tape re-release

Super Onze – Tape re-release

Last week my label TWO Speakers released a Sahara trance cassette re-release from my friends of Super 11 (Gao, Mali).

Session pour Yehia le Marabout (TWO 005)
“Super Onze are the real roots of desert blues – Mali’s equivalent of Congotronics. This is how it all sounded before the electric guitar came in to the equation: Super Onze play amplified ngonis with virtuoso and hypnotic melodies, their raw, impassioned bluesy singing hangs over heavy takamba beats on calabash percussion. After years of playing at weddings and child naming ceremonies around the desert, this band rocks – not to be silenced. The real soul of Mali’s northern desert.”

Lucy Durán, School of Oriental and African studies, and BBC Radio 3.

The people of this band are in serious danger. War/sickness/famine in their hometown/region/country. All proceedings go to them directly. So please support them directly by buying the album.

OUT NOW: StreamerPilot
– White Sugar EP

Get ready for StreamerPilot’s 3rd Installment of their remix EP’s,
featuring some surprisingly diverse remixes spicing up your Djset. The
White Sugar EP will definitely attract your attention with first
of all their 96 Bpm booty shaking ragga remix of Miami’s only Locos Por
Juana
. It drives you on, makes you wanna shake and it will not
look out
of place on a hispanic community party somewhere on the US’ East
Coast. Furtheron its noteworthy to mention the crazy second
remix, a cocktail of distorted thumpiano’s on top of slamming dubstep
licks joining Dutch brasilectro trio Zuco
103
. Exciting, sinister and
sensual on 88Bpm. After hearing the rattling remix of a klezmer
lamentation song played by Merlin
Shepherd
you will certainly know how
to finalize a good night out early in the morning, rowing your boat
into the fog on 58 BPM only..

Again StreamerPilot is bringing you original state of the art
productions, a great follow up to their Black Pepper and Red Sea EP
releases.
