In support of his 2009 album, Dirty Bomb (amazon|itunes), Filastine circled the earth twice in a 100-stop tour that began at a squat in Jakarta, Indonesia, tore up Europe’s most respected festivals (Sonar, Transmediale, etc.), and ended in a cloud of tear-gas outside the Climate Summit in Copenhagen. For real. Brother is hardcore.

In a swirl of emotion and sheer exhaustion following the Copenhagen clash, Filastine lost his laptop & made this DJ mix on borrowed equipment while recovering in his Barcelona home base. We’re pleased to debut this mix, especially as it contains a heap of unreleased material from upcoming EP ‘Extra Dirty Bomb’.

Filastine doesn’t do DJ mixes very often – preferring to perform live with various bits of electronics, percussion (including shopping kart), and vocalist Nova (your favorite Indonesian rapper). That said, this is my fav Filastine mix to date. Nimble percussion, dark brass, bleeps, intense vocals, non-dull dubstep, grit. Also: French people like him.

A disfrutar!

  1. AHHHHH!!!!!!! Truly inspiring. Gonna bring this to Ghana to play for WUNMI…working on the next Wunmi album this month!!!! You doing a beat with us?

  2. This actually legitimately certified arabioklezmer/bollymore/hipstep/bass bananas. This is the best mix I’ve heard in a long time.

    One question – there’s an element that comes in just after 34:25 that’s forms the backbone of the Buraka Som Sistema track “Kalemba.” Did he just mix in a touch of Kalemba that didn’t make the tracklist, or did he put in their sample source?
