Download Pom Pom – November Reign (zshare)

01. Pom Pom – Intro
02. Little Lenny – No Sound Can’t Test We
Tells it like it is. Let’s go!
03. DJ Ganyani – Limpompo Funk
We wanted this mix to be housey with plenty of elements to keep you listening all day. Some of the best house stuff out seems to come from South Africa so we packed a couple of SA house gems in here, like DJ Ganyani and this big room track of his. Video’s super fresh too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x87ycW7iJuQ
04. DJ Gakwa – Terminator Return
Another guy from South Africa, on the Afrotainment label (good label). Stripped down production, disoriented funky sounds. We need (more of) these songs.
05. DJ Gregory & Gregory Salto – Con Alegria (Solo ‘More Cowebell’ Remix)
Last summer’s anthem. This is the sort of record that had us thinking we should probably shave our backs, start spinning on CDJs and charge three times the money. Needless to say we’re still cheap and hairy…
06. Boris Dlugosh – Bangkok (Roska Remix)
…To hammer home that point here’s this dope Roska Remix out on Phantasy. We like the original but this is such a scorcher! The way it combines UK funky beats with the original’s ravier sounds, not for the weak at heart or hips.
07. Tzoz En Proffessor – Mantombanzane (Club Remix)
Back to South Africa. We’ve played this for over a year and it still sounds like the track of the week. Thought it fitted this mix so well we couldn’t do without it – love the female choirs here.
08. Kool DJ Dust – Human Beings
The original thriftmeister DJ Dust has been putting big spending record buyers to shame with his label-covered finds of Swedish Indie /Italo /Noise for as long as we can remember. Here’s our keeper from his Ancient Astronauts 12” on local label Feed. Pounding discoid electronics – the least common denominator of dudes everywhere.
09. Traxmen – It’s House (Paul Johnson Remix)
OK, we needed to put some House music on here as well, Dust’s track sort of called for it. Paul Johnson comes hard here with this track. It’s House, nuff said.
10. D.J. #1 – Test (Get Up)
This is actually a DJ Funk record, released on Dance Mania in -94, like a year before the previous track with, pretty much the same vibe. Just throwing another bone at you.
11. Criminal House – Rhythm Talk (Bad Boy Bill Mix)
Early Dance Mania now, out in -89 which you might have guessed from the synth stabs and the way you feel an urge to live in a field. Nice vocal sample to work up the vibe for what’s next.
12. Drop The Lime – Set Me Free (Lil Silva Remix)
New Trouble & Bass. Dudes are really back at it again with this release. The Little Jinder is out any day (peep the Bok Bok remix when it drops!). The combo of funky drums and classic vocal house sample on the Lil Silva remix just kills it here.
13. Hot City – Sweat
UK garage 2.0: the classic bassline sound, the vocal sample and the beat… familiar somehow but tweaked just the right way make it feel very up to the time. Guess we could say “Hot City is hottt!” when we fill in the feedback form.
14. Joy Orbison – BRKLN CLLN
Well, everyone should know about this guy by now as his release prior to this is one of the most hyped up in 2009. He stays in style on this track, super smooth!
15. KrY$tAL LeOnn’ – Son Dédicasses (Instrumental)
Coupé decalé evolved… Krystal LeOnn’ is a 19 year old multi-instrumentalist which we got hooked on surfing Skyrock. Part of the Towess collective, Krystal is a beat producer set for bigger things than the 400 plays we caught this at. This is the dancing styled “instru” version and it slays. Can’t wait to hear more from these guys.
16. DJ Zinc + Benga feat Sweetie Irie – Number 1 Girls
The Super Sharp Shooter man’s new “Crack House” EP is solid and this is the track with the most dancehall feel to it. Loving the bassline.
17. Artwork – Rank
To be honest, we weren’t really big dubstep fans back in 2002 when Big Apple started releasing their groundbreaking music but when you listen to it today you can tell they were doing stuff that would last. This is off the first release on the label and it’s just a huge tune!
18. Gucci Vump – Sha! Shtil! (L-Vis 1990 Remix VIP)
L-Vis 1990 ftw! His VIP remix is not on the original “Sha! Shtil!” EP but beats all the others on that. This is some super deep stuff, perhaps too dark for most dance floors but perfect for a mix. As usual L-Vis is one step ahead. So is Discobelle who just posted this. Rats!
19. Stefski – Shai Track VIP
A Stefski exclusive heard here for the first time outside of a club situation. Thought this was a good way of saying thanks and see you soon again!
