Because the weather is fucking depressing. Dream away, my friends. Imagine you’re in Abu Dhabi with a big ass cocktail in your hand.
This is what Joakim itself had to say about the mixtape:
This is not exactly a “Best Of” but a mix of the tracks i played most in the clubs during my DJ sets in 2011 (so obviously it doesn’t include older tracks that i still play). Lots of great dance music this year again. Makes me wanna make some.
A couple of days/weeks I posted about the then upcoming EP from Bambounou & Joakim called “Fructose”. Today a really cool interview with the two artists came out with them talking about the unusual collaboration, cheap synths and the party itself. Teki Latex had a great time as he was shouting his infamous “chuichooooo” all night.
anyway, really cool interview, enjoy!
A suprising but excellent collaboration between the Young Gunz member Bambounou and Tigersushi’s Joakim Bouaziz, called Fructose. Both having such a different sound (electro/breakbeat – I don’t know how to call Bambounou’s sound – vs. the poppy, disco, electro sound of Joakim made me question the collaboration at first but hell yeah it worked out and it worked out damn well! Release date December 19th on Sound Pellegrino! Have a listen yourself here.
There will be a release party at Social Club in Paris too, the 22nd of December. Social Club is one of my favorite clubs, plus the great music and atmosphere. This one just can’t go wrong. Might go to Paris for that one. Here’s the info on the party.
