Man 053 | October 12, 2010
Man Recordings don daa daa, Daniel Haaksman, returns with a remix edition of his „Hands Up“ EP which was released in July to much DJ and radio acclaim. In the remix EP, „Hands Up“ feat. Mozambiquan female MC crew Seguindo Sonhos gets a quintruple, trans-global deluxe remix treatment, already played by DJs like Crookers, Brodinski, Fake Blood, Feadz, Toddla T and many others.
The remix EP kicks off with Jan Driver of Boys Noize Records fame, who slams Haaksman´s original track onto the floor of Panoramabar Berlin with a wall of sound-compression that would crush any concrete. Paris´new wonderkid, French Fries, brings „Hands Up“ into low-end territories with his fantastic Grime meets Hyphy rework. Emynd from Philadelphia delivers a classic, in your face Bmore remix that certainly will bring many dancefloors to the boil. The king of Monterrey Elektro Tribal Guarrachero, at just 17 years old (!) Erick Rincon, created the genre specific, shuffley Tribal Guarrachero rework, which brings „Hands Up“ into sped up Cumbia-Techno realms. And finally, Beware + Motorpitch from Vienna present a classy tropical house rework that brings Haaksman´s original track back to the Euro dancefloors. „Hands Up“ around the world!!
Bonus remixes on this EP are the legendary Bert On Beats rework of „Kid Conga“ feat. MC Miltinho – which won the Man Recordings remix contest in 2009. Plus the slammin´ reinterpretation of „Purr Na Na“ by French Electro whizkids Beataucue, which re-assembles one of the highlight tracks of the „Valeu – Celebrating 5 Years Of Man Recordings“ compilation.
