Scotty’s Music Monday: Fresh Mixtapes..Buraka Som Sistema b/w Dubbel Dutch

Dubbel Dutch is a fine gent from Austin who used to run the In Robots We Trust blog. Last spring he started blowing up the new post-funky bass sound, and he’s one of my favorites now. Start with the Throwback EP. massive tunes and it probably had my favorite cover art in 2010 too.

Anyway here’s a brand new mix of Dubbel Dutch’s recent dubplates.  They are all sooooo good, you should listen to it.  My favorite is ‘Madloopz’ at the end, it’s that bonkers half-time sound I am terming ‘bayou house’, equipped with what sounds like actual cricket and alligator samples.  Bayou house is 9999x better than every witch house release combined, except for ooOOo and the dude from Ithaca.  See the Dubbel Dutch side of his split with Untold last December if you’re into it.  Or just come see me play at Fuze Box in February !

Buraka Som Systema also just put out a new mixtape for Dazed Digital.  It’s a real solid mix mostly of Kuduro/Kwaito style rhythms, but then it gets silly at the end with that track Dave Nada did for that porn website, which is funny, and Play by David Banner??  The lyrics still make me feel a combination of nausea and embarrassment.. so good.
