about

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. Music knows no borders and neither does
the irresistible vibe of Black Masala.
