Return of the Bag Raider

We haven’t heard anything from the groovy duo, Bag Raiders, since 2012. And now the drought has been graced with a splendorous downfall of summer rain. They have released a new single, with the announcement of a new EP underway! The latest EP, titled  Nairobi/Savannah will have four brand spanking new tracks, fresh out of the recording studio. And we are lucky enough to be given a new mix to stream for free with a release of one of those tracks!  ‘Nairobi’ has been released for our listening pleasure!

This funky little tune is layered with weird and creative percussion sounds, creating a tropical summer vibe, ready to chill out and party too. The track also has undertones of mystical vibes that create an electronic euphoria. This playful mix will keep that booty shakin’ all night long. The atmospheric jungle of synths and samples is creative and quirky, introducing new instruments and rhythms Bag Raiders haven’t used before.

This new style from the Bag Raiders is definitely a crowd pleaser with us at DJ Central,|Have a listen and let us know what you think about this groovy new sound!

Nairobi/Savannah drops on the 4th of July through Modular Recordings

Bag Raiders free downloads!!!

Dance names around the world are marking their big moments with free downloads this year. Bag Raiders hit 100,000 Facebook fans and to mark the occasion, they’re giving away a very special piece of Australian dance music history.

“A massive thank-you to each and every one of you fine creatures who have helped us reach 100k! We wouldn’t be doing what we are doing without you guys, so a million thanks to all of you. It’s going to be a big year of new music from us and this feels like the beginning of something special. So to commemorate it, we would like to share with you something special from where it all began for us. Before our first tracks, our first remixes, anything, there was this; our first ever DJ mix. With our good friend Gus, now known as Dreems, this mix was conceived, created and pressed to about 150 CDs with “Bag Raiderzzzzzzz” on it. So for anyone who still doesn’t know, this is where the name comes from. So click the link, sit back, relax and let the memories roll by!!!
