DANIEL HAAKSMAN - 24-7 FT. ROBERT OWENS + K.ZIA
Man 107 | 23rd of November 2018
With “24-7”, Berlin´s tropical bass don Daniel Haaksman releases the 2nd single from his upcoming new album “With Love, From Berlin” (scheduled for an end of January 2019 release on Man Recordings). The album is reflecting on Berlin as a city of yearning for international artists and travellers alike, and is featuring numerous collaborations with artists from around the world living in Berlin.
Consequently, “24-7” ft. Robert Owens + K.ZIA is a collaborative Berlin-Afrobeats track that features legendary Chicago house pioneer Robert Owens (of Fingers Inc. and Larry Heard fame) and Belgian up and coming singer K.ZIA – both calling the German capitol their home. While Robert Owens sings about Berlin as a Shangri-La “where you can be whoever you wanna be” in 24-7 mode, K.ZIA, daughter of the fabulous 1980s world music singer Zap Mama, is chanting the chorus “Taper Des Mains” (“clap your hands”), reflecting the increasing polyglot, cosmopolitan vibe of Berlin.
The original version of this Berlin tune is accompanied by two remixes from two other European capitol cities. Lazy Flow of Paris, currently the hottest tropical vogue and ballroom DJ in France, remade “24-7” in a proper Angola afro house mode. Ted Jasper of London (signed to BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Jamz Supernova´s label Future Bounce) redefined “24-7” in a subtle UK dub club mode.
Early DJ support from AME, dOP, DJ Marfox, Adam Port, Shantel, The Flexican and many more!
“Find it, feel it, love it. Get inspired, 24-7, 365!”
