Since releasing their self-titled debut album earlier this year, Black Masala has been busy performing, touring and recording new music. The group won two Washington Area Music Association WAMMIE awards for Best World Music Recording and overall Best New Artist of the year. Black Masala has quickly made a name for themselves with their eclectic and funky brass-heavy sound, performing at shows up and down the East Coast. Three tracks from Black Masala's self-titled debut album received remix treatment by some of the world's most exciting and in demand remix artists. First up is Dutch producer Solo Moderna's funky Balkumbia remix of "Mesecina", a high-energy stepper to get the dance floor going. DJ Clairvo, from Budapest, takes the deep southern Soul of "Knockin" and drops the bottom out, adding funky beats and dj scratches. NYC based K Sabroso also reworked "Knockin", pushing and pulling the track through a range of effects, creating a bass heavy moombahsoul monster! Popular tune "Bhangra V" received five different remixes, the first by Los Chicos Altos from Barcelona, Spain. Los Chicos Altos maximize the heavy horns of Bhangra V with a swinging beat and deep bass line to maximum effect. Sydney, Australia's Omegaman has added his signature chopped up breakbeats and other effects to create a party rocking and DJ friendly jam. Originally from Bulgaria and now based in Cologne, Germany is Kosta Kostov, who has warped and twisted "Bhangra V" into a heavy, dance floor Balkan smash; be careful with this one! Miami's Kinky Electric Noise originally hails from Colombia and that comes through in his remix, with an upbeat tempo, heavy bass boom and some killer percussion. Closing out this release is the deep, tribal house remix of "Bhangra V" by German producer Samuel Tegaro, a refreshing and surprising take on this great tune. Black Masala is known for their music gumbo, a live and enchanting mixture of funk, Balkan, soul, brass, Gypsy, Appalachia and more thrown together. These remixes capture the essence of Black Masala, taking the band's music into new and different directions like house, breakbeat, moombah-soul, Balkumbia and more.

A very new Solo Moderna track, called Cumbia Kingston, has been compiled on French Columbian Galletas Calientes Records. The compilation under the name of Demencia Tropical (Alien Sounds From The Tropics). Feeling very at ease with other allienized producers, coming from all wind directions, there is Kosta Kostov, Rafael Aragon, Cero39, Dj Click and Los Piranas to name some. Expect some unexpected and delightful fusions of tropical genres! Coming on cd, download and a special selection on vinyl!!! Cumbia Kingston has been blogged on Generation Bass and charging up at Juno Downlaods UK, also the place to buy the piece. The Kacksters EP did pretty well as it was blogged on the first and oldest electroswing on Spanish Cassetteblog: and on Lord Sassafras Jordi Auguri Blog. At the last momment there was an extra remix coming in by Danish/Dutch producers Mashti and Polyesta. A very fresh and electrofied version of Hoop E Kack, quite a surprise. And if all are ok even in a short time theres another remix coming from the UK!! This month I finished up a remix for Forth Knox Five Records in Washington US. All very excited about it!! Soon more information about that. A special note about a very nice gig with dj Siroj last week as a Gipsyfestival preparty and coming up on 7 juni I'm back playing in Bergen op Zoom where the jazz still is being reanimated with Jazz on Route I'm residating Cafe Les Vedettes!

This upcoming EP reveals it's new direction on The Kacksters EP with 5 versions of the track Hoop E Kack ranging from electroswing to folkstep to some faster breakbeats.
