Mixin’ It Up: Tim Turbo
This week we travel to Berlin for our Mixin’ It Up. There, in the land of techno and lovers reggae, we found one man that stands out and mixes the the fun from Jamaica with the electro sound of today. So when Tim Turbo isn’t out playing us on his own blog Cyan Wait, he sat down to make us this mix.
“This mix is basically what I listen to the whole day and what I play the whole night. Stuff thats affected by the Caribbean or tunes from the Caribbean, affected by European productions. Genres are overrated. Bass is duty. Jamaica is the fastest country alife. Kraftwerk is the genesis. Automatic doors make me feel like Jedi. And he is a good looking boy, by the way.
01 M.I.A. – Bucky Done Gun (Good Looking Boy Remix)
A exclusive remix by a friend of mine, called Good Looking Boy. He is a young, upcoming producer from Berlin, with love for 808 drums and straight in your face miamibass-like electro beats. Expect to hear way more on him soon on the relevant and worthwhile blogosphere and on myspace.com/goodlookingboyberlin. And he is good looking, by the way.
02 Raymond Bell – Jump In Line (Shake Shake Senora) (John Bourke Bmore Mix)
Caribbean flavoured Bmore. Thats that shit. For Me.
03 Baby Ft Clipse – What Happened To That Boy (DJ Amphibous Remix)
DJ Amphibous takes a classic, near perfect Neptunes produced übertrack., chops away most of the vocals, adds a killer bassline along with some extra boom to make this into something snowy fresh. Unfuckable.
04 Maskinen – Alla Som Inte Dansar
Everyone that doesn’t dance are rapists! Word!
05 Jamtech Foundation Ft Busy Signal – Pounds Of Dro
Jamtech Foundation from Sweden foisted a ravy dancetrumental on Busy Signal and up jumps the boogie. Large!
06 Machines Don’t Care – On A Roll Man
07 Rodion – Electric Soca (Crookers Remix)
I searched for some real Soca stuff and found this one and I was like: „electric“?, „soca“?, Yeah!
Needless to say that my favourite raggazzi are totally unfuckable anyway.
08 Jamtech Foundation – Bring In The Tune
Jamtech Foundation is here to stay. This tune is more atmo-techno-style then the other legendary monsters, but Cali P on the hook turns the tables in a 90s Dancehall way.
09 Cansei De Ser Sexy Ft Mapei – Music Is My Hot Hot Sex (Switch Remix)
I want to be like Switch. And I really looking forward to his Electro-Dancehall project with Diplo.
10 Young MC – Bust A Move (Don Rimini Ravekid Remix)
Young MC is oldschool. Don Rimini is oldschool 2.0
11 Maskinen – Segertaget (Dada Life Remix)
12 Juice String – Sex Weed (Laidback Luke Remix)
Zulu House. Zulu is banging on drums. Zulu is congas and cowbells. Zulu is a relentless kick drum. Zulu is rhythm. Zulu is jacking til you sweat. Zulu is old and new. Zulu is Get Rude. Zulu is a feeling. Zulu is that low down wobble you sometimes feel. Zulu is a familiar feeling. Zulu is fresh. Zulu is bass. Zulu is bigger than you and its totally okay to feel a little intimidated right now.”
13 Bart B More – Make Some Noise
14 Cowgum – Druggggssszzz (Edu K, Dr. Gonzo Remix Ft Wannabeastar)
Edu K deranges the already disturbing track by Cowgum. He is a Baile Funk divinity.
15 Da Hool – Love Parade (Van Miert Remix)
16 Sharkslayer – BadDing
100% bona fined facemelt 2008 realness here. Rib crushing bass, Ding Dong vocal samples (!!!) and production skills that can give the best a run for their money.
17 Teddybears – Cobrastyle (Diplo Remix)
I saw Diplo here in Berlin this year together with Tobias, my kinder garments sponsor of seen. (check: blog.seen-site.com and shop.seen-site.com) and it was pure enlightenment for me and him. Diplo is king.
18 Edu K Ft Madame Mim – Headbanger
19 Miss Odd Kidd – Sperm Donnor (Plimsouls Remix)

Guess what? Bonde Do Role are Unfuckable.
