BERT ON BEATS - ANTENNA OF TALLINN REMIXED
Man 063 | October 17, 2011
With „Antenna Of Tallinn Remixed“ Bert On Beats returns with a big bang. The original album release, „Antenna Of Tallinn“ being considered as one of the major tropical bass albums of 2011, now gets its appropriate remix treatment.
Since the release of Bert On Beat´s debut release „Antenna Of Tallinn“, the Estonian DJ and producer extraordinaire has been busy playing out across Europe and remixing acts such as Buraka Som Sistema, Vybz Kartel, Shotta feat. Mr.Lexx or Schlachthofbronx amongst others with his unique blend of Kuduro inspired Afro beats and dubstep bass wisdom. Recently, Bert also was featured in the Hard Ass Sessions series on Enchufada.
Containing fourteen reworks, „Antenna Of Tallinn Remixed“ is a big package. Remixes come from a wide range of hot 2011 tickets such as Munchi, Daniel Haaksman, Neki Stranac or Big Dope P, upcoming talent such as Woz, Julius Sylvest, Max Le Daron, as well as established names like Flore, Diamond Bass or Raiden amongst others.
New talent kid on the block, Woz from Bristol kicks off the remix battle with his rework of „Zonin“. In best UK bass fashion Woz shapes the formerly hip hop rooted „Zonin“ into a club friendly banger. Another promising new talent is Julius Sylvest from Copenhagen, who gave „Chega Mais“ feat. MC Gi a proper Euro 3Ball fit, which would make any fan of the wild Monterrey cumbia techno sound excite. UK´s Raiden delivered the heaviest bassline science in the set of remixes with his version of „Zulu Power“ which will melt dancefloors easily. Big Dope P of French ghetto institution Moveltraxxx touched Gun Clap and made a Juke inspired remix accompanied by the frantic raps of MC Sunny. Man Recordings boss Daniel Haaksman displays his current love for Footwork with his remix for „Bone Dat“ which brings the reggae licked original banger to the dancefloors of Chi-Town (watch it, there´s no bassdrum!!). The only lady in the group of remixers, Flore of Lyon, a long time associate of Man Recordings, nails „Shika“ feat. Anbuley to the big floor with ravey synths and the irresistible voice of Anbuley from Ghana. One of the most talked about producers of 2011, Munchi also layed hands on „Bone Dat“ and created a cool Moombathon meets Dutch Bubbling remix that will smash any floor (accordingly titled „Nope This Is Ain´t Moombathon Dude“ Trap Bubbling Remix). These are just a few of the names and styles included, check outher remixes such as Moombathon don Neki Stranac, Diamond Bass from Enchufada crew in Lisboa, Tambour Battant from Bordeaux, Belgian tropical boss Max Le Daron and others.
