Hamburg based producer Boris Dlugosch just unleashed the absolutely huge “Bangkok” single on the Erol Alkan owned Phantasy Sound label, we posted the video a few days ago and then our Swedish brethren in Pom Pom used the even bigger Roska remix for their fantastic edition of our Mixin’ It Up series. This of course meant that we somehow had to find a way to give the remix to our faithful readers and thanks to Darling Department here it is…

Boris Dlugosch – Bangkok (Roska remix) (128 kbps, Sendspace)

This time we travel to Stockholm and the duo Pom Pom for our Mixin’ It Up. They been dominating Stockholm’s night life for years and now you get to feel the flavour of Stefski and Agge’s party vibe.

If you are in Malmö this Saturday. Be sure to join us at ,The Rumble for a night of Pom Pom magic!

Download Pom Pom – November Reign (zshare)

Bonus: Check out the video for Busy Signal – Picante (Stefski Remix) here.

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!

This week we travel to Berlin for our Mixin’ It Up. There, in the land of techno and lovers reggae, we found one man that stands out and mixes the the fun from Jamaica with the electro sound of today. So when Tim Turbo isn’t out playing us on his own blog Cyan Wait, he sat down to make us this mix.

If you are in Stockholm today you can catch him on Club Pom Pom (at Berns) with Jamtech Foundation and the boys in Pom Pom. It’s going to be massive!

“This mix is basically what I listen to the whole day and what I play the whole night. Stuff thats affected by the Caribbean or tunes from the Caribbean, affected by European productions. Genres are overrated. Bass is duty. Jamaica is the fastest country alife. Kraftwerk is the genesis. Automatic doors make me feel like Jedi. And he is a good looking boy, by the way.

01 M.I.A. – Bucky Done Gun (Good Looking Boy Remix)

A exclusive remix by a friend of mine, called Good Looking Boy. He is a young, upcoming producer from Berlin, with love for 808 drums and straight in your face miamibass-like electro beats. Expect to hear way more on him soon on the relevant and worthwhile blogosphere and on myspace.com/goodlookingboyberlin. And he is good looking, by the way.

02 Raymond Bell – Jump In Line (Shake Shake Senora) (John Bourke Bmore Mix)

Caribbean flavoured Bmore. Thats that shit. For Me.

03 Baby Ft Clipse – What Happened To That Boy (DJ Amphibous Remix)

DJ Amphibous takes a classic, near perfect Neptunes produced übertrack., chops away most of the vocals, adds a killer bassline along with some extra boom to make this into something snowy fresh. Unfuckable.

04 Maskinen – Alla Som Inte Dansar

Everyone that doesn’t dance are rapists! Word!

05 Jamtech Foundation Ft Busy Signal – Pounds Of Dro

Jamtech Foundation from Sweden foisted a ravy dancetrumental on Busy Signal and up jumps the boogie. Large!

06 Machines Don’t Care – On A Roll Man

07 Rodion – Electric Soca (Crookers Remix)

I searched for some real Soca stuff and found this one and I was like: „electric“?, „soca“?, Yeah!
Needless to say that my favourite raggazzi are totally unfuckable anyway.

08 Jamtech Foundation – Bring In The Tune

Jamtech Foundation is here to stay. This tune is more atmo-techno-style then the other legendary monsters, but Cali P on the hook turns the tables in a 90s Dancehall way.

09 Cansei De Ser Sexy Ft Mapei – Music Is My Hot Hot Sex (Switch Remix)

I want to be like Switch. And I really looking forward to his Electro-Dancehall project with Diplo.

10 Young MC – Bust A Move (Don Rimini Ravekid Remix)

Young MC is oldschool. Don Rimini is oldschool 2.0

11 Maskinen – Segertaget (Dada Life Remix)

12 Juice String – Sex Weed (Laidback Luke Remix)

Zulu House. Zulu is banging on drums. Zulu is congas and cowbells. Zulu is a relentless kick drum. Zulu is rhythm. Zulu is jacking til you sweat. Zulu is old and new. Zulu is Get Rude. Zulu is a feeling. Zulu is that low down wobble you sometimes feel. Zulu is a familiar feeling. Zulu is fresh. Zulu is bass. Zulu is bigger than you and its totally okay to feel a little intimidated right now.”

13 Bart B More – Make Some Noise

14 Cowgum – Druggggssszzz (Edu K, Dr. Gonzo Remix Ft Wannabeastar)

Edu K deranges the already disturbing track by Cowgum. He is a Baile Funk divinity.

15 Da Hool – Love Parade (Van Miert Remix)

16 Sharkslayer – BadDing

100% bona fined facemelt 2008 realness here. Rib crushing bass, Ding Dong vocal samples (!!!) and production skills that can give the best a run for their money.

17 Teddybears – Cobrastyle (Diplo Remix)

I saw Diplo here in Berlin this year together with Tobias, my kinder garments sponsor of seen. (check: blog.seen-site.com and shop.seen-site.com) and it was pure enlightenment for me and him. Diplo is king.

18 Edu K Ft Madame Mim – Headbanger

19 Miss Odd Kidd – Sperm Donnor (Plimsouls Remix)

20 Dizzee Rascal – Pussyole (DJ Beware Remix)

Baile Funk captain DJ Beware gives this actual Bmorish tune a great new style. Ehm, Dizzee is unfuckable, too.

21 Bonde Do Role – Contaminada (Boss In Drama Remix)

Guess what? Bonde Do Role are Unfuckable.

22 DJ Sandrinho – Base Box Base Chao Base Beatbox Plus Tamborzao

Off Man Records terrific Rio Baile Funk Breaks, DJ tolls you can play like real tunes.. Wow.

23 DJ Sandrinho – Never B Alone Remix

I know ist played out. I don’t care.

24 Jamtech Foundation Ft Mr Vegas – Hot FuckR

25 Tony D. – Der Mann mit dem Klang (Flashgordon RMX)

The selftitled only german Crunk rapper and „Damager“, Tony D. gets a new electro base from Flashgordon and rolls down South Berlin. Windows down, elbows out.

26 Buraka Som Sistema – Yah

27 Tim Turbo X Tobias Lützenkirchen – Drei Tage Baile Funk (Tim Turbo Rebirth)

My remix of THE german afterhour techno tune of the summer. Got help by Rio Baile Funk Breaks, thanks Daniel.

28 Low Budget – They Call It Murder (Jamrock B-More Club Remix)

I like Bmore because its pure rhythm. Junior Gong’s übertune is pure bassline. What a couple

29 N.E.R.D. – Everyone Nose (Douster Remix)

30 South Rakkas Crew – South Rakkas Crew – Mad Again (Boy 8-Bit RMX)

South Rakks Crew gave a great impulse for the whole Electro meets Dancehall meets Whatever issue. Wich is my issue. So I have to play them.

31 Delinquent – Chalance Man

32 Detboi Ft Serocee – Jump Up And Down

33 Jamtech Foundation – Rumble Jumble Life

34 Abbey Kat – Naughty (Marflix Bassline Mix)

Marflix is the number one German Soca producer. He did this remix for the caribbean singer Abbey Kat. But its not what the caribbeans think of when they order a remix. Anyway, it’s exclusive.”
