Give a hand for Africa

During the busy days of the last couple of weeks, music has taken the back seat, being more of a means than an actual end. Sorry, hopefully I'll be a bit more consistent in the near future. Got a tip from Commodore 64 Look-a-like Mads yesterday: The very excellent blog Awesome Tapes from Africa. A killer Mp3-blog purely jamming to tapes (seriously, we're talking tape-rips here) of awesome tunes from the dark continent. A highlight on the blog is Ata Kak, described as: "It sounds so home-made funky yet spooky, like a warped Prince protege from Africa by way of 1986 Chicago." - Enjoy:

Ata Kak - Obaa Sima
Ata Kak - Yemmpa Apa

I think the thing we can learn from this is, we should all marry the internet and just be happy! Oh, and do go and check out the site, by far one of the coolest music sites I've seen thus far.

Thought I'd hit you with a piece of musical sex - Sounds like the soulful sweaty cousin of DJ Assault. Shane Fontane has taken David Banner's Play and dipped it in 1 part porn, 1 part soul fest, 1 part 'Work dat' and 1 part cheese - It's dumb, repetiteve and fun!

David Banner - Play (Shane Fontane no concent remix)

Final focus this post is the excellent new band Turboweekend. 6-7 years ago Danish music was rather emberrasing, but since then, starting cirka Junior Senior, the music scene has exploded. Latest rocket to blast across the Copenhagen sky are Turboweekend made up of Ivan Skavinsky, Ollie Switchdance and Jay Declan (You have to love a band with ficticious names). I'm not sure that they've broken throught the Blogosphere soundbarrier yet, but it will happen! First song was killer single Into You:

They've had a couple of remixes done for new single Wash Out, one from Veto based SuperTroels. It's electro in the style of now, and should be enjoyd at sweaty temperatures:

Turboweekend - Wash Out (Supertroels Remix)
Turboweekend - Something to Say (Supertroels Remix)
