DJ Shotnez, or Ori Kaplan as he was born, is one of the factors why UrbanWorld is here today. You may not know it but back in the early 2000 when Ori lived in NYC he was part of a movement that created the Rubalad alternative parties, he was founding member of the gypsie punk band Gogol Bordello and balkan band J.U.F. which later went on to become Balkan Beat Box.

It was in NYC - highly inspired by the world beats scene which Ori Kaplan was an integrated part of - that UrbanWorld was created. So it is with huge respect that we welcome DJ Shotnez’s debut dance floor EP – Toma Toma. The EP includes 4 original tracks which all have that global bass feeling on the dance floor, plus 4 remixes to top it off just right:

DJ Shotnez gives a few words on the tracks:

Hoje Festa feat. Throes + the Shine. They have an amazing energy - super good and raw – it’s kuduro rock, bred in Angola and fed in Lisbon. Dub Gabriel, who was also part of that NYC movement, remixed it for this EP and I can't stop listening to his work.

Part Of The Glory feat Balkan Beat Box. Remix of my own work in collaboration with Balkan Beat Box with more shuffle and cut up style vocals. And it gets even crazier as one of my favorite butchers Neki Stranac from Shazalakazoo gives it his treatment.

Nighttime feat Bomba Estereo. Liliana Saumet has one of THE most amazing vocals of Latin hip hop, electronica and what not, her voice has that deep Caribbean and Pacific vibe and looks into the future. Who other than the Superpendejos can take on a chica like her?

Orimonika. Think American folk meets global bass, influenced greatly by Nortec Collective, with a serious dance floor beat that gets people jumping. Thornato – representing the new generation in NYC – get to round it up with a trap inspired remix, so heavy you won’t believe it.

From Shotnez to his little tiny one called Toma...
