[LISTEN & BUY] Dakim – DDUST REGOS (LeavingRecords 031)

26 11 2013


Total Runtime: 31min
Cassette ONLY
ltd. to 250 tapes


This is a man i try to collect everything i can, not because im  in a fan boy mood or anything like this.
I’m  collecting any DAKIM works cause it’s one of those rare artists you can discover new things in a track u already listened 15 times, an artist you can “study” or dive into again & again & again for hours, an artist than completely avoided that crazy non-sense hype about beat scene (particulary LA one) which is still to me something to define…We’ll wait for Laurent Fintoni book for this, pretty impatient about his writing & what he collected.

For now, let’s go back to Dakim and this amazing tape for Leaving Records (what else?) called DDUST REGOS
If you’ve been following him the word DDUST might remind you a bunch of CDR DIY sent almost 3 years ago, if you were digging and werent broke u might have copped it.  This new cassette aint nothing but a dak thang, get your ear on this excerpt first, then we’ll talk. Less.

The universal consciousness lives through infinitely variable and constant vibrations, which, while having individual characteristics, are all sympathetic to each other and together form one consistent motion.

The motion only knows to continue and its shape remains fixed, simply being an amalgam of everything, which is always moving but always.

The faster the vibrations, the more they become entwined with and directly influenced by other vibrations, blurring the contrast between them until they become indistinguishable as separate individuals.


Dakim’s music is so rich, it doesnt need so much to blast your brain out of your head, if it didnt leak from your ears first. Its not an easy music, and its very healing music at the same time. But hey, if you are reading this, its either u love Dakim or either u love the blog so dont need to warm you up.

To me, Dakim is an absolute king alongside people like Madlib or Muslimgauze. There’s no such thing as Dakim music, no material sound the same, no one can duplicate his stuffs. Falling into Dakim is more than a listening session around the woodfire. No. Falling into Dakim will make you go completely loco, cause everytime u’ll see a cassette or CDR of him roaming around, you’ll just tell yourself: Wait a minute, i need to listen to this again, im sure i didnt listened properly. Every. Time. Will. Do.


Grab this tape while you can. Its more than an advice, it’s an order.

[DOWNLOAD] The Gaslamp Killer X The Heliocentrics – HELIO GLK Mixtape

2 10 2013

from Now Again with love:

Gaslamp Killer is one of our favorite DJs and a big supporter of the Heliocentrics, recently saying that Heliocentrics producer and drummer Malcolm Catto “is the reason I got into all of this shit.” That inspiration comes through in this mix of GLK re-edits of some of the best tracks from their new album 13 Degrees of Reality, and the series of EPs that Now-Again will launch in 2014. He also mixes in some music from 60s ensembles that influenced the band.

GLK writes:

“In 2008 Jeff Jank asked me to make a Heliocentrics podcast for stones throw to help promote the guys 1st album. It was one of my most fun & unique mixes. Here we are 5 years later in 2013 & again, I was asked to make a mix of some of the bands newest material from their superb album entitled “13 degrees of reality” that was just released & i was even granted access to some of the unreleased sessions that I had been hearing so much about for so many years from Egon. It is an honor that I present this, (my newest mix) HELIO GLK to the world. My chopped up / re edited madness from the band they call The Heliocentrics!”

Don’t rush in the stores cause this super cool 12″ is already Sold Out

[DOWNLOAD] El Mahdy Jr & X_J – Peugeot 504 Dub (Free DL)

1 10 2013

The Future is Bright___

The almighty Peugeot 504 break version (or wagon in english i presume)  is an absolute classic for people from France & Algeria. I could even say that as Couscous, the famous dish from north africa, it became a symbol of Franco-Algerian culture (yes there is a Franco-Algerian culture).  So, every summer, many brothers go spend a month or two in Algeria by their families, bringing TONS of gifts from Paris to the bladi. Taking the car from Paris to Marseille, then the ferry and then depend on where you are located in Algeria, you’ll still have to drive to reach your villages.
People from Algiers are kinda lucky to not keep on driving…but at same time won’t enjoy Aurès or amazing landscapes from countryside. A must visit for anyone, the algerian parts of the Sahara is amazing.

The french rap band 113 made a song about this classic summer return in a song called “Tontons du bled” (Homeland’s Uncles) check out the video HERE.  We all have friends who returns Algeria or Senegal every summer. Some hate it, they prefer to stay all sumer with their friends in the projects, but more you grow up, more you go and less you want to come back to Paris suburbs.

Anyway, that was a lil note for you guys before you ask or wonder why this song is named like this, as illustrated…

So here’s a track we did with Mahdy, with some rips from a very dusty tape i found in a car my bro gave me_African Cassette of someone i wont tell you who, maybe later who knows___Anyway, if you are interested you can click HERE
