Tikitech the EP

Yes, it's bloody Radioclit again. And Douster. Etc. Via Discobelle.


"For this first episode of a series of mini-compilations curated by Mental Groove’s most cherished artists, trend defying duo Radioclit pick their favorite youngster producers and let them paint their own picture of Africa. The Fader-favorite Douster, über-productive Frenchy Lazy Flow and Myd deliver a collection of dancefloor anthem and the perfect balance between African funk and heat-inducing house. Radioclit, still burning hot from producing the monumental The Very Best album, add a bomb ass bonus. C’est l’aventure, it’s Saga Africa!

Already supported by support by Sinden, Mumdance, Riva Starr, Brodinski, Crookers, Duke Dumont and many more."
"Paint their own picture of Africa" indeed. And if that wasn't enough, here's the release party flyer:

"Curse of the Voodoo" is an especially charming epithet when talking about African music, too. Well done guys. (Party, of course, at "Le Zoo".)

It's doubly tasteful, considering this, that Douster's press releases all describe his shit as "prehistoric club music"...

This reminds me to delete his EP - his remixes might be decent, but his original material is profoundly mediocre.

The music honestly isn't ALL that bad... but what I really find funny is the quote that they defy trends.. when it really seems that this whole "tropical" thing is pretty damn trendy (even if they are maybe mostly responsible for the rise of the trend).

Birdseed, you should make a bingo card of Africa clichés mentioned in new music press releases - safari/adventure/monkey/banana/zoo/friendly natives/hostile natives/colonialist chic/"tribal"/jungle/heat/primitivist faux-authenticity/

@dubbeldutch the worst thing about the "trend" is that it isn't a common musical progression but just a collective assortment of thematic stereotypes & gimmicks. no new sounds really, just new samples.
