Budabeats Records celebrates its 10th anniversary with label bosses DJ Gandharva & Von Yodi picking 11 previously unheard tracks from artists of the Budabeats family.

"Shades Of Budabeats" features African-influenced jazz and funk from Dokkerman & the Turkeying Fellaz plus The Mabon Dawud Republic; head-nodding hip-hop beats from Abase and Tom Caruana; straight dancefloor friendly pieces (BeTe aka Suhov, Umoja, M.W.D, Chilum Trio & Auto Reverse) and also, laidback grooves (Freakin' Disco & Crookram).

It's a perfectly balanced compilation, beautifully sequenced too, so as well as cherry picking tracks for your next all encompassing DJ set, you'll be quite content just sticking this one your player at home and reveling in the sounds of truly charismatic label. 

The Mabon Dawud Republic

Wawa Tree / Ayaya

The Mabon Dawud Republic, Hungary's first all-star progressive Afrobeat ensemble started as the Fela Kuti tribute band for the very first Felabration event in Budapest, organised by the band itself and joined by Fela's original Egypt 80 band member, keyboard player and singer Dele Sosimi.
Given the member's love for Afrobeat, the jamming soon evolved into a project of their own songs. Their republic is a place filled with the soul-warming vibes of a 15 piece orchestra, a place for dancers, a place to escape from the outside world and enjoy the magic that is unfolding on stage. This debut 7" serves up a pair of funk heavy afro-beat bangers essential for fans of Fela, Tony Allen or more recent revivalists the Flammer Dance Band.
