I had so much fun playing my favourite Global Beats tunes at the DJ Summit. Everybody, thank you for your beautiful dance and celebration. Thank you Global Club Music Network for the support and the love. Success is so much sweeter when celebrated together. World Music Forum NL thank you for helping me getting the word out about my showcase, it worked! The dancefloor was full! It is great to be supported.

As it was my 10th WOMEX, I had a little celebration. Which I really celebrated 100%!
The unofficial party on wednesday was a success as well as our common stand. I liked also that so many Polish collegues and musicians were at the fair this year. There are rumors: WOMEX 2017 in Polonia 🙂 I really didn’t like the unfriendliness of so many Hungarian people (exceptions like our Hungarian collegues prove the rule). Culture clash…

I was introduced by GCMN to Womex as my friend Captain Cumbia (DJ summit 2013) shared a stand with the crew. Since then I’m extending my network and getting broadcast on the remix compilation. Moreover, there’s always a GCMN fellow that knows this booker or this artist. It’s like instead of knowing twenty people, I know four hundreds of them now! And because I have to say something negative on the whole experience, I’d really like Womexicans to be more and more to come from the global beats scene. We need more DJs!

This WOMEX was probably the best one for me… The Global Club Music Network, 3th year of participance, had a nice exposure and definitely intensive action. An off party on the fantastic boat A38 presenting 8 DJs and 2 live acts, visited by the most delegates present on Wednesday after the official WOMEX opening party – the best „warm up“ 🙂 Our stand was a place for contacts, talks, exchange, but also the spot for our silent disko. At last but not at least the GCMN panel discussion brought connections between people, continents and music style we never thought before of. For me personally it was beautiful to meet again the „family“ of djs, producers, musicians, labels like every year, enjoying the great weather, hingarian food & wine. And finally i made it to a #cityboy dancer 🙂

Checkpoint Guanabana’s new LP is ready!

CHECKPOINT GUANABANA is a new music project founded by Alejo Marulanda & Hermano Simón, two Colombian-Berliners that together with some of the most representative musicians of Berlin´s Latin-scene are putting their twist on the sounds of Global Bass & Electronic Music live, creating afro-latin rhythms like merengue, cumbia, salsa, merecumbé or timba (amongst others) combined with power-funk, hip-hop and one of their most important influences: electronica from Berlin, their headquarter. More info about the band: http://checkpoint-guanabana.com/

Their LP is just ready to go and will be release on ghetto-folk label Vlad.

Hermano Simón will be at Womex 2015 (Budapest): meet him on the GCMN stand – nr 1.96!

Rebel Up! Soundclash Showcase at Womex 14

Last October Rebel Up! Soundclash from Belgium played a showcase DJ & VJ set at WOMEX WOMEX 14 Santiago de Compostela. They invited a few live artists on stage and made sure everyone stayed busy on the dancefloor. Check out this mixtape!

Rebel Up! Showcase DJ Set @ WOMEX14 by Rebel Up! on Mixcloud

“This set mostly followed the build up of our *Beats From The Global South* mixtape but with extra twists and additions. It was a full Rebel Up! styled set with visuals by our VJ M and at the end we even did a live improvisation with 2 Canadian musicians; Tamar Ilana, a sephardic singer from Toronto and Briga Dajczer, a violon player from Montreal.
