Christmas is coming this weekend and a lot of producers and dj’s are dropping freebies so here’s a little roundup of the things you MUST get before closing the 2011 chapter.
1. Bombaman – Some Swell view VIP [for the ravers]

Bombaman drops some other free tracks on his soundcloud but this one is the most powerful, the original version was already sick but this vip version adds a little unexpected twist to it.
2. J-Wow – Diva (W.OW. mix) [for the kuduro heads]
J-Wow from Buraka som Sistema and founder ot the much loved Enchufada records share this bootleg of Beyonce he did a couple of years ago: for the kuduro heads!

4. Akwaaba – Sem Transporte compilation [another one for the kuduro heads]
Akwaaba’s manager was complaining yesterdayon twitter about the thing that 9 outta 10 tweets about kuduro were refering to Danza kuduro, and to fix this (but also for Christmas) they take us back to the roots of kuduro with some of the roughest tunes coming straight from Angola on this great compilation. Name your price on bandcamp or get for free if you’re already broke
5. Spoek Mathambo – Nombolo One
South-African stakhanovist/hyperactive dj/rapper/producer/fashion icon Spoek Mathambo shares with us his latest project Nombolo One. This project goes back to the original south-african kwaito sound.

6. Jumping Back Slash – 2 freebies [afrotronical kwaito]
To conclude this post we stay in South_Africa with one of my favorite producers around: jumping Back Slash. He shares with us two tracks to thank everyone who pushed his music forward in 2011. The first one is a dubby kwaito tune and the second pushes the bpm higher with a catchy kwaito bassline.
