Mix Monday: Kid Kameleon EXCLUSIVE MIX

A very special exclusive mixtape this week comes courtesy of San Francisco based DJ, Writer, and all round bad boy Kid Kameleon. KK first came to our attention way back in 2004 with a pair of mixes he did for Kid 606's excellent Shockout Label. The absolutely shocking and even more shocking mixtapes mashed together Breakcore, Dancehall, and Electronica with quirky pop in a genuinely new and exciting way. Since then he's been building a name for himself worldwide with a series of devastating DJ mixes, articles and podcasts for XLR8R, and as part of SF's Surya Dub crew

This time the kid has turned his attention to future garage/post dubstep/ Wot do you call it with his Stop asking me what Genre this is mix. KK has been at the forefront of those pushing this sound in the US and his mix is a showcase of the hot new tunes of the moment.

You can grab Part 2 exclusively from the Steak House Blog below. Part 1? Thats over on the excellent Frite Nite Site.

Jumping Back Slash: Exclusive Indlovu Iyajaiva Mix.

This week is an excellent one for Global Bass Music. Not only do we have the previews for STEAK 003 up but we've just heard that one of our very favourite labels have a new release due out on the 21st June. Pollinate Records, the London based label responsible for the killer Ibhithi series of tunes recently had been keeping a few tricks up their sleeves for this, their first full release since 2008's The Artworks Formerly known As Prints. Turns out that the Ibhithi tracks that we heard earlier in the year were just the tip of the tropical...ahem...iceberg. There's a full Ibhithi release on the way with a clutch of hot new afro-house beats as well as fattened up, remastered versions of the earlier tracks for those not fortunate enough to grab them previously.

The excellently monikered Jumping Back Slash is the man behind the Ibithi series. Hailing from the frozen tundra of Wigan in the north of England, he currently resides in Capetown, South Africa. His tunes marry the heavy kwaito grooves of his adopted homeland with a classic house sensibility and killer bassines. This is a record not to sleep on.

To celebrate the release, JBS and Pollinate have kindly given us an exclusive mix for the blog of some of the hottest kwaito and underground house tunes from South Africa at the moment.

The mix is the perfect antidote to the banality of the 'official' World Cup anthems by K'Naan and Shakira.

Grab it below and play it LOUD!

DJ Tapatso - Dictionary Remix
DJ Mu Elvan - Bass To Bass

Al Fingers Pass Out Refixes

Election day in the UK. Without meaning to be too political (this is meant to be a music blog after all) I'm not looking forward to the most likely result. To stop myself thinking too deeply about it I've been playing music LOUD in the office! Two tunes that have been really getting me going recently are Al Fingers' massive refixes of Tinie Tempah's number one smash, Pass Out.

Remind yourself of the original below:

Then get straight on Al Fingers' mashups below. He's given the riddim a more JA flavour by dropping vocals from Capleton and Richie Spice over the original tune. FIRE!

Capleton - Capleton Medley (Pass Out Refix)

Richie Spice - marijuana (Pass Out Refix)
