DeVille – Calippo Mix

calippo

New mix in from DeVille, titled “Calippo” and dubbed as “Totally Tropical Bass”. Full tracklist with bonus commentary after the jump…

  • Instituto Mexicano Del Sonido – Cumbia (Tom Tom Club Remix) w/ Bun B – Pop it 4 Pimp Acapella
  • Old school legends Tom Tom club make New York electro cumbia monster, couldn’t resist a bit of Bun B over the top, saw him live this year, legend.
  • Coki & Benga – Night (Sonido Del Principe RMX)
  • Benga and Coki chopped and screwed by one of Europe’s finest Cumbia producers. Woozy, chugging, great.
  • Amadou & Mariam – Sabali (Dakunt & Stinj RMX)
  • This called itself a Kuduro remix but really wasnt, it is a really nice edit of one of my favourite tracks off the LP though.
  • Basement Jaxx – Raindrops (Joker & Ginz RMX)
  • The Joker and Ginz EP on Kapsize was one of my records of the year, so when I saw this I was excited. Big squelchy rainbow bass for the sunshine.
  • Pacheko & Pocz – Zarbak
  • An exclusive from Venezuela, international funky business with an old school Warp acid vibe
  • Shystie – Bad Gal Bass (Ill Blu Funky RMX)
  • Shystie is back, Ill Blu makes it funky = Win.
  • Benga – 26 Basslines (Dubble Step RMX)
  • Never quite bought in to the original but this cheeky re-edit made my day.
  • Sticky ft Marvin Brown – Jack It Up
  • You don’t need to tell me Sticky is on fire at the moment, apparently Marvin is from Leeds. Where was he when I lived there?!
  • Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers (Club Dub)
  • I have no shame in admitting I love this track, Armand Van Helden is the constant renaissance man.
  • Buraka Som Sistema – IC19
  • The highlight for me from a great album, almost understated comapred to some of their other stuff, but a banger none the less.
  • Maxwell D & Lil Silva – Blackberry Hype
  • Never thought I’d like a track about phones so much, they should use this on the Blackberry adverts.
  • DJQ – Shottas (MR V RMX)
  • Good bassline never gets old. Simple but effective would describe this one.
  • Stagga – Rockin Down The House
  • Cheeky re-edit of a classic track, Stagga’s lopsided basslines live up to his name. Who remember’s the Jaxx version?
  • Lol Boys/Sukh Knight – Diesel Paint Job
  • Re-edit from America of one of the grimestep tacks of last year. I’m told Ice cream paint job has some fairly dubious potential meanings.
  • Sasquatch – Kickboxer
  • Brand new Senseless Records, ’squatch channels Van Damme 1989.
  • Swindle – A Different World
  • I swear Swindle is the grime Stevie Wonder. This is of his CV album, a lot of it is almost toooo funky for the club but this one edges it, amazing.
  • Toddla T – Shake It (Donaeo RMX)
  • Donaeo definitely has a sound, but its a good one.
  • DJ Gregory – Block Party (DJ Spen Dub)
  • Used to play this years ago, theres a few good mixes of it though. Doesn’t sound a million miles from UK funky now it has to be said, but that could be a good or bad thing.
  • Untold – Anaconda
  • I liked his old stuff but never played any of it but this tune is like woooooooah. Will not leave my box this year.
  • Iron Soul – Pressure Instrumental
  • Always thought Iron Soul was better than Kromestar. But rumour has it he’s on some new funky which was also fire.
  • Tempa T – Next Hype (Mosca RMX)
  • Grime/Baltimore re-edit, almost more of a DJ tool but it works.
  • Roska – Climate Change
  • Was blown away by this, and it still packs a punch. Not even sure if he’s bettered it yet.
  • DeVille ft Violet – Click (Octapush RMX)
  • Liboa in the house, was a honour to get two of my favorite new producers to remix one of my tracks.
  • Metronomy – Radio Ladio (Radioclit RMX)
  • Epic.
  • Madeira Limpia – La Lenta (Schlachthofbronx RMX)
  • I’m still not ever sure I’ve spelt their name right but I like what I’m hearing from these guys. What is it with Germans and Latin music?
  • Boy Better Know – Too Many Man (Heartless Crew RMX)
  • A great tune, potentially made even greater. A Grime history lesson.
  • DeVille – Calippo / w Busy Signal – Step Out Acapella
  • I like Calippo’s this summer, this will have an official vocal later in the summer.
  • Ghosttown – Greezy
  • Another Senseless exclusive, also getting a VERY big vocal and rmx. Release Sept/Oct.
