The EP was mainly recorded and mixed at Mr Sakitumi’s own studio in Muizenberg, with an original track by Mix ‘n Blend (featuring Mr Sakitumi on drums), produced in their studio. The extra drums for the EP were recorded at Hey Papa Legend Studios. Mastering of tracks was done by Simon “Fuzzy” Ratcliffe from Sound and Motion Studios. Like with his debut album, Secret Asian Man released in 2011, Mr Sakitumi played all instruments himself for the solo tracks on his latest offering.
“As with ‘Secret Asian Man’, these tracks also existed over a period of time, with some being pretty old and others more recent. I went with the ‘refried’ aspect in the title as bit of a reference to DJ Food’s ‘Refried Food’ (Ninja Tune) – The idea being that some of these are remixes and re-workings of older ideas.”
REFRIED NOODLES Track List:
1. No More Sorrow
3. Full Muppet – Mix ‘n Blend feat. Mr Sakitumi on drums (Secret Asian Mash)
4. Handle Me (feat. DJ Vadim’s “Terrorist” Acapella)
6. Calm Before The Sleep (feat. Mark Buchanan)
7. Full Muppet – Mix ‘n Blend feat. Mr Sakitumi on drums (Original Version)
Mr Sakitumi gave some of the older tracks, like ‘No More Sorrow’, ‘Sakitumilla’ and ‘Calm Before The Sleep (feat. Mark Buchanan)’ a bit of a face lift for the release of the EP. ‘Handle Me (feat. DJ Vadim’s ‘Terrorist’ Acapella)‘ is an instrumental he had been performing live for a while, before coming across the Acapella version. For Mr Sakitumi, the two worked so well together, that he contacted DJ Vadim personally about releasing the version on the new EP. DJ Vadim really liked it and gave Mr Sakitumi’s version his blessing.
Mix ‘n Blend asked Mr Sakitumi to play drums on ‘Full Muppet‘. Being such a big fan of their work, he immediately agreed. One day he thought about adding it to his live set, so he played around with it for a bit. That’s when he added some of the samples from ‘Secret Asian Man’ to the track. He loves playing it live at gigs and Mix ‘n Blend are delighted to have it featured on REFRIED NOODLES.
“It’s a power packed EP with some beautiful, emotive songs and some banging, fun tracks!
It’s a gift… from Mr Sakitumi.”
