Man Rec is proud to present a new EP by boss man Daniel Haaksman. Called “Hands Up”, it´s the perfect summer EP full of eclectic Tropical and Balkan bass flavours.

The EP kicks off with “Hands Up” and a Kalimba melody plus the voices of Seguindo Sonhos, a three piece female vocal outfit from Mozambique, who bang out party lyrics in a mish mash of Portugese and English.

“Dubcheck” features Boban Markovic Orkestar; one of the most legendary gypsy brass orchestras from the Balkans. We got hold of a recording by Germany gypsy don Shantel (and ex-partner of Daniel), who collaborated with them a while ago. “Dubcheck” is a 100% floor bombing banger. This Gypsy Soca rave anthem was already approved by Italian stallions Crookers, who included it in their mix CD for French Tsugi magazine.

The third track in the EP is “Well Oso”, a downbeat track for all of you who miss the good days of loop based, downtempo jams.
