Whats up!! Strangefruitmusicblog here hooking you up with a mix made in break beat heaven….
If you were one of the few lucky people to witness Seiji on the 12th March do not hesitate to download this one. It’s basically everything people who were not there missed out on…
Seiji actually uploaded this mix today to give people a taste of what to expect for a gig called Download this but since I am not a London native and will not be anywhere near the UK this weekend (afcourse I am going to be attending the Strange Fruit fifth year Anniversary at Club Watt)… this energetic mix will have to do…Enjoy!!
if you press the arrow on the right side of the soundcloud music wave (you know…the small one underneath the info button) you can download this straight to your computer
Those who where there on 12th of march at our Strange Fruit party with Seiji are in the know of what he can do to a dancefloor. Altough it wasn’t our most busy event he kept everybody on the floor. Now Seiji is back with two absolutely devastating tracks of killer and addictive UK club manoeuvres – everyone is after this twelve right now so don’t hang about!. From his work with Bugz In The Attic to countless remix escapades, his contribution to the life of the world’s dancefloor is impossible to overstate.

The cd from Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura Band featured a nice re-interpretation of the J Dilla track “Think Twice”. For the forthcoming “Gilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura Remixed” project this new version is remixed by Marc Mac of 4hero. Other remixes for this project feature Louie Vega, MJ Cole & our last Strange Fruit clubnight guest Seiji. Download and listen to the 4 hero mix here.
Yep Seiji was here… and he did exactly what I expected him to do. He did an off tha hook very danceable spinning session. If you were able to stand or sit still this particular Friday you probably were not at Club Watt. I’ve seen quite a few DJ’s spin and I was truly impressed by Seiji ability to keep tha crowd movin. It was very obvious everybody present was having a very good time. The only downside to this event was that it wasn’t as crowded as we expected it to be.
But since there is still a lot on the Strange Fruit menu…we hope you guys will support or next event…Ndambi in ROTOWN on the 20th of March!!
Strangefruitmusicblog already did enough SEIJI features to make sure you know what you are going to miss out on when you choose to be somewhere else than at club WATT on the 12th of March.
So to be honest…we are confident we can let this go now…but before we do…remember the Fact Mix 129 we allerted you on?! You know the one you can download here for a limited amount of time.
To give you an extra push in the right direction we are going to provide you with a little extra incentive to download…when you click here you are not only going to find the tracklist for this very energetic SEIJI mix but you can also listen before dowloading.
Afcourse there is an alterior motive to our generosity. Since we are very much aware of the SEIJI effect and how slamming the FACT mix is…we can safely say SEE YOU ON FRIDAY AT WATT!!

A few years ago we at Strange Fruit spend lots of time and money on a genre called broken beat. If we look back and can choose an era between 2000 and 2010 that shaped us the most then it must be this period. It looked like it all came finally together. Afrobeat, jazz-funk, 2-step, soul & p-funk!. Unfortunately we’ve never been to the Club evening called CO-OP at Plastic People in London which was the center of this movement. Luckily we had the Jazzsole crew in our hometown Rotterdam who brought this amazing sounds to us. We must thank to Umberto en Egbert of the Jazzsole crew for bringing the future to us.
We’ve got the feeling that in years from now a lot off people will be looking for the tunes made guys like 4Hero, Ig Culture, Afronaught, Daz-I-Kue, Marc de Clive Lowe, Domu, Eska, Seiji, Bembe Segue, Viktor Duplaix, Kaidi Tatham and all people that where involved in this. If you wanna go a little bit deeper in this sound then you have to check the article Mr Beatnick did on broken beats for FACT magazine. Of course there s always gonna be a discussion which tunes should be in this top 20 and which tunes don’t belong there. But we are sure that you have to admit that this top 20 consists of great tracks. Click for the full article here.
SEIJI has been dropping goodies all year and I think the man finally realized that he is gotta make a living. To make sure that we’ll hear more from this break beat genius in the future…we are introducing his latest release YESMAN/ELEVATOR availabe via his bandcamp website.
Strange Fruit knows that they are on to something otherwise they wouldn’t have bothered to invite SEIJI over. But for those of you who are still in need of a little push in the right direction…I suggest you read this very recent article Fact Magazine did on Seiji and the download that comes with the article is a definite must have!! If you really want it…. download fast because it will only be available for 3 weeks after the 5th of March.
Time for yet another SEIJI warming up!!
Below I have collected as many of the seijgoodies as I can….so you can listen and get an impression of what SEIJI is capable of and when your done shaking your bum you can download them for free after you click here.
If this feels like a music overdose…You’re right…cause it’s supposed to be. Since I am convinced that you’ll want to be there…. the time has come for details (in Dutch) and tickets when you click here.
Afcourse nothing has to happen in the exact order we suggested above..but we most definitely order you to…ENJOY!!

As of March 2010…WATT CAFE will be STRANGE FRUIT territory…at least once a month on Fridays. For those of you who know our drill and for those of you who don’t…we’ll still deliver our rather unusual mix of nu-soul, hiphop, boogie and uk funky!!
For STRANGE FRUIT ‘s first 2010 club edition our special guest will be SEIJI from London. This former member of broken beats super crew BUGZ IN THE ATTIC is mostly into UK FUNKY music nowadays. But since BENJI B and ANNIE MAC can’t stop playing his productions we can safely assume….he knows what he is doing.
The 12th of March is only a few days away and there is one thing that has now become STRANGE FRUIT policy…THE STRANGEFRUITMUSIC BLOG provides you with some music or a download to get you warmed up for our upcoming event and afcourse SEIJI is no exception to the STRANGE FRUIT policy….ENJOY!!
