I’ve had my ear on Warren Xclnce for a while now and finally found the right moment to talk about young Skywalker Luke aka Mr. Cummings. The first song I heard from this talented producer from London was “Examine Me” featuring Etta Bond. This was on his “Nymphophonic” album which, for the record, also guests IAMNOBODI and miss Ego Ella-May. That one really blew my socks off and is still available for free download. Now fast-forward to today, to his latest production “Amazon” which is off a compilations project initiated by Collective Resonance. “The Amazon Project” is being put out to raise funds for the Amazon Rainforest and releases on the first of June.

Modern Funk producer Tryezz from Chattanooga, Tennessee is a master of combining that eighties Funk with
dropped his fresh “Skylines” release earlier today. The project represents ten years of ups and downs. And it sets the perfect soundtrack for all those hot summer days to come! Head on over to Tryezz’ Bandcamp page to show some love.
L.A.’s top notch producer Swiff D has always been on the top of our list, when it comes to straight slammin’ hip hop producers.
Swiff D was responsible for some of our favorite Pac Div productions in the past. Just a few days ago, Steve put up ten “Washington Park” instrumentals on his Soundcloud page and we thought you might enjoy hearing some of that illness!
IAMNOBODI took several unique polaroid photos in the streets of the city that inspired his newest release, “Snapshots From Berlin”. All polaroids are signed by, contain comments from and/or were painted on by Mr. Nobodi himself. Only 250 copies were pressed on numbered vinyl and each record contains one of these polaroids. Purchase your limited copy or digital version at the Jakarta Records Bandcamp page.
ChromadaData first popped on our radar when he dropped the talbox banger “Closer” last year. This young and extremely talented producer from Kansas City recently released a new album on Elestial Sound. Whether you’re into soulful melodic beats or straight up filthy funk…this is something you will want to own! Available in both digital format as well as on good ol’ vinyl.
With joy we present to you “Various Assets: New York 2013” containing exclusive material that was made, during the Red Bull Music Academy, in four early summer weeks in New York City last year. The compilation contains a whopping thirty songs from 62 international participants and a cast of high-profile studio team members. Of course homeboy Dâm-Funk represents the Funk with the mindblower “No More Love”. Also feel free to discover music from August Rosenbaum, Jameszoo, Thundercat and a gang of other musicians for free. Mind you…download at your own risk!
Lately we’ve been on that Funk trip and after some heavy neck brakage to The Boogie, we found ourselves nodding our heads to DOC Mastermind‘s “1985” album. We’re always to new funkateers and this fella from France is now officially on our radar. The track streamed below, “Avenue d’Italie 2.am”, featuring Monomite reminded us of our buddy Paolo (aka the flute) riding his Vespa in the streets of Italy at night. Make sure you give the entire album (out on Laruche Records) a listen on Bandcamp.
DJ Rahdu and the BamaLoveSoul collective have been decreasing your harddrive space since 2008. With their latest “On Deck” 2 compilation they manage to give twelve upcoming artists, such as Rippy Austin, James Tillman, GDNA, Humus, JFinesse and Buscrates, a platform to be heard. Soulful is the keyword on this compilation released via BBE and I think they did a great job. Fresh selection with some raw elements!
It’s been a looooong time since I spoke to Chris from Frankfurt, but this guy has been putting in some work and is getting quite good. His latest “Outside In The Rain” jam is available as a free download, so get yours while supplies last. My advise is to keep an ear out for Frankfurt Frank. He surely got the Funk!
Mr. IAMNOBODI is on the verge of releasing a 10 beat album entitled “Snapshots from Berlin”. All the music was in some way inspired by the city of Berlin and 250 numbered vinyl copies will be sold. Each with a unique polaroid taken in the streets of the city that inspired the release. Here’s a little taste in the form of “Schillerpromenade” and keep your ears out for this one of a kind project!
