Das Kapital & MNNR release new collaboration “XTC” which becomes the first outside artist release on Botnek’s label – World Famous Headquarters [LISTEN]
Nova Scotia, Canada – Since August 2017 Botnek have been releasing singles on their label World Famous Headquarters and each release has explored their early fidget, blog house & rave inspired Botnek sound. This year they have decided to open the label’s focus up to become a platform to support the inspired & prolific community of producers that constantly supply Botnek with forward-thinking music, while having a similar vision of “wacky house music” as they do!
The first release from this talent pool comes from South African DJ & producer Das Kapital, who follows up his single Hit The Club with Bart B More on This Ain’t Bristol with this collaboration with Italian production duo MNNR.

Artist: Das Kapital & MNNR
Release date: 1st November 2018
Das Kapital picks up the story:
“I’ve been a fan of MNNR’s high octane sound for a while now, so when they reached out asking to collaborate,
everything fell into place pretty easily. We managed to find this special musical place between ‘peaktime banger’ and ‘grooved-out roller’ that really helps XTC stand out as its own beast. Working with MNNR was such a pleasure and I’m really looking forward to working with these talented guys again in the future.”
“We started the idea of this track thinking about a club situation where everyone is standing
and moving to it” explains Francesco of MNNR about the origins of the track.
“Das Kapital then took the basic idea and twisted it up, he added the vocals and the “funky” parts and turned it
into an absolute banger. It’s been awesome working with him.” Gordon & Erick from Botnek give some background on their label and the discovery of XTC:
“When we first started World Famous Headquarters it was really just an avenue for ourselves
to do self-releases. We often get demos from amazing up and coming producers as well as established
ones from around the world… but it really wasn’t until we received XTC from Das
Kapital and MNNR until we went “WOW. This is what a WFH release is.” It’s classic, it’s future,
it’s funky and it’s a real groover. We’re so proud to have this be the first non-Botnek release on
our label. Kudos to Das Kapital and MNNR for setting the stage for what the future has to
Das Kapital and MNNR are both very happy to have Botnek’s support for this release.
“I’ve been listening to Botnek since their debut release on Discobelle back in 2011. To now be releasing on their label some 7 years later is pretty surreal; plus they are nice guys too!” says Das Kapital. MNNR agree “Big shoutout to Botnek and their team for giving us the opportunity to be their first non-Botnek release on their record label World Famous HQ!”
