Daferwa is taking off to Mexico from 6th October to 11th of November with a mission: see his missed familia, play some nights, eat some real tacos and getting the latest news on what’s happening from Tenochtitlan to Aztlán. It’s been a while that Daferwa recorded a mix on the fly. But some flavours inspired him to prepare the one hour trip he decided to call Daferwaton since dembowish syncopation is one of his favourite. Also he didn’t miss the twerkish moment that’s going on right now. But he’s feeling it even more when accordeon lines take him straight to Dallas where la raza is getting down like that. Also Daferwaton is introducing some exclusive remixes from two young german producers: Motin from Dresden and Ghetto Vanessa from Bünde. A big GRACIAS goes out to all the producers and artist on the mix.
This weeks MIU!sik selection is as colorful as a giant lollypop and as sweet as fluffy cotton candy: João Brasil sugar-coating Chet Fakers “Talk is cheap”, Dany F from Colombia licking on some delicious bolitas de tamarindo, typical sweets from Palenque and Klaves from Poland handing out warm beer with honey and his new single “People”. Can it get any sweeter? Oooooh, yeah: Cologne based synth-pop duo Heartbeat adding some fresh vibes to Brandy & Monicas “The Boy is mine”, Agent Lexie and Symbiz playing around with some caribbean flavors and El Búho from Amsterdam flirting with beautiful cumbia grooves.
