Description : So much of the music I like has it's roots emanating from Africa, this track may be so far removed from their traditional style of music to be foreign but I'd like to think I'm connecting to those roots in some way.

    Having african heritage(Mozambique and South Africa)to be more specific,this somehow connects with me in a deeper level.
    Great,great musicianship and programming.
    Having been a follower of the Rebel Soundclash radio show(2 folks out of Belgium)that broadcast some of the really hard to get "underground"african music,this song really reminds of it.
    And to think this is all work of one man.
    Great work Planet.
    May i ask,where you got the amazing acapella please?

    Hi Nelson...thanks for your great review mate very much appreciated! I'm heartened to hear that I made some connection to the underground modern music of Africa, it is after all the font where all music sprung from and especially for the roots of Jazz and most contemporary styles. Those vocals are part of a Kontakt instrument "Ethno World 5 Voices and Choirs" by Native Instruments and are listed as coming from Cameroon, it contains some amazing samples and I'll be using more in upcoming tracks for sure, your review really made my day man! thank you again..cheers Dave :)

    Added to my favorites very easily. You always manage such clarity with your productions. When the track started I found myself walking through an African market place or village lol.
    A great track that really resonated with me.

    I love this!
    Love the way the rather alien guitar appears and fits so well.
    I could have handled a couple of more minutes of this easily.
    Totally pro sound.

    Thanks mate glad you enjoyed it, I would have extended the track with more vocal samples but I only had a certain amount in that key so I didn't want to be too repetitive, though I should have extended the flute solo!...ah well, short and sweet I guess..next time i'll stick to a longer format...cheers mate

    This is a cool divergence from the songs I expect to hear when visiting your profile! Feels like something which may have shown up on "Sandanista," which is definitely my favorite Clash album. So I guess that means that it has a sound which I identify as one culture being interpreted through another person and the culture they were born into. I don't think that living things strictly choose where they are born, so it is not your fault if someone were to say that it does not sound authentic. Something which I would not do in this case! I love the bass and guitar performances very much, and the hand drum and other percussions add a lot to the enjoyment of this song. I'm assuming you have no idea what these words mean, but I would be happy if you give me some idea of what they mean to you. Was a very fun listen, from beginning to end! Fave!

    Hey Pat thanks for stopping by mate!..I have absolutely no idea what the lyrics say, it's probably content any small community would talk about, sex, chickens or the weather! lol...I totally agree with your premise about cultural interpretation through the medium of personal experience, my grandmother used to have this old zither that I used to play with as a little kid, I couldn't play it in the traditional manner but somehow figured out to try hitting the strings with spoons, I'd spend hours hammering away making crazy sounds, don't know what ever happened to that old zither but I was thinking about it during the making of this track funnily enough...glad you enjoyed it mate!..cheers Dave :)

    Shoot! I finished writing a long comment and I lost connection. First off, thank you for sharing this wonderful piece PJB, finally I come across a piece with good instrumentation and authenticity. The vocals is a clever addition, even if I don't understand the language. Your bass work is superb as always. Love the ethnicity of the percussions. Mix is very good, I hear everything clearly, always good to not experience ear fatigue. Congratulations for another great addition, faved and downloaded.

    Hey Pete thanks buddy! glad you enjoyed the tune, I wouldn't have a clue what the lyrics are saying either, though they sound pretty happy and I was trying to reflect that and keep the tune upbeat, thanks again for stopping by mate...cheers Dave :)

    Great track here, Planet! I love all of the sound choices used here. This track definitely gives off that African origin sound. The mix is done very well and the vocals sit perfectly in the mix. The flute sound that came in around 2:38 was great. Did you use a real flute? Overall, this was done very well!

    Keep up the great work, fav.

    Hey thanks Mod, glad you enjoyed the tune! The flute was a midi played Vst (pinkillu bamboo flute) which I thought fitted in quite well, I was originally envisioning some more traditional African instruments like the Kora (21 stringed harp) but unfortunately I have no access to one of those, and I couldn't play it anyway! lol...cheers mate Dave :)

Description : I'm from Denmark/Copenhagen, and I traveled all the way to Sweden/Helsingborg just to experience the ultimate Swedish nightlife.

I have been to the hottest VIP clubs in Copenhagen and Milano. Nothing come even close to the Swedish nightlife.

I went to a bar called "Benzin Bar" and they put the bardisk on fire(with Benzin) and danced on the tables. The bartender toke some of his cloths off and sprayed champaign around and the music-mix was insane!

If you want the ultimate party experience, then Sweden is it!

I just got emailed the music director of a big Swedish radiostation. The music director agrees with me that Benzin bar was amazing! He puts this track on the music rotation!

I freaking love Sweden!

The song was created on Caustic Beta Version 3.8, and mastered on Mastering Beta Version 5; both Android apps from Single Cell Software. The new Sawsynth synthesizer in Caustic was used in the background & synth bass (paired with another bass).
