2 NEW releases on Rebel Up Records; V/A – Mamari Remix compilation & Satanique Samba Trio – Mini Bad

New releases out this month of September!

Various Artists – Mamari Remixed
13 remixes between global electronic beats, afrohouse, bass and more….

The remix compilation ‘Mamari Remixed’ is the little electronic sibling of the album ‘Mamari’ by Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble. 13 producers from Africa, Europe and Latin America give their own spin on the original songs by making them ready for the dancefloor. All producers combine 19 different nationalities and show their ability to make bass music that stays true to the organic sound. The remixes not only use the original instruments but also manage to convey the political messages from the Power Ensemble.

Jan Janzen (keys) and Niklas Mündemann (saxophone) of Muito Kaballa are also DJs and enthusiasts of the underground clubbing scene. With ‘Mamari Remixed’ the two musicians want to create bridges between the worlds of “live music” and “club music”. Remixed included are by Nuno Beats (RS Produçoes), Catu Diosis (Nyege Nyege), Lee Bass (Gato Preto), Lua Preta, ARN4L2, DJ Satelite & PolBack, DJ Flavya, DJ Makala, BYDLY, Quixosis, 115 Solaris, Ekiti Sound and Rafael Aragon.

The countries represented on this compilation are Portugal, Uganda, Poland, Angola, Cabo Verde, Germany, Ghana, Colombia, Brazil, US, Spain, Netherlands, Ecuador, Belgium, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, UK, France, Uruguay and Algeria. 

A limited edition vinyl pre-order as active as well, delivery is expected 15 december.

Satanique Samba Trio – Mini Bad
B sides from the Brazil’s experimental jazz underground.

From 2004 to 2020, Satanique Samba Trio has dropped 11! records into phonographic existence. Naturally, some compositions from the quintet’s (not really a trio indeed) catalogue didn’t make onto any album for one reason or another. ‘Mini Bad’ is a remedy for this situation, as it amasses 10 tracks that were almost part of albums like “Bad Trip Simulator #3” (2013), “Xenossamba” (2017) and “Forrivel” (2020). You can call it B-sides from B-razil, if you dare.

There is also a very limited edition 10″ vinyl, only available in Brazil. Check the bandcamp for more info.
