PromNite Back To The Bae
13.06.14

PromNite‘s “Bae Area” (Act Right) is synth-laced re-funk of Yo Gottis song “Act Right”. We listened to the original version and it hurt our ears so bad we had to turn it off. Enough about the original, but man does this L.A. producer PromNite bring that crackin’ Cali vibe to the table.

Earlier this year he released his “Love Songs For What?” album for those interested. Personally I’d love to hear some more Funk-inspired productions from mister PromNite so when that happens we’ll have more on this guy. On another note, this track might just be on the next ‘Future of Funk‘ mix coming to your ears sooner than you think!

Besides being my most beloved way to start the day, Sex On Toast is also a nine man strong band from Melbourne, bringing you an explosive mix of eighties synth-funk and pop music. You’ll really enjoy this collection of tumultuous sexuality and party jams recorded for her pleasure. Basically this is sex on a platter, preferably served blazing hot. Visit the band’s Bandcamp page and purchase a digital copy or CD to fulfill your needs!

Moovmnt Guest Mix 09 comes from Melbourne-based Modern Funk producer Benny Badge. His “Seal The Deal” album came out last month and when it comes to that nasty Funk, the man behind Freekwency knows his stuff. We’re very happy to have Benny pick up where we left off last year. Indeed more guest mixes are comin’ your way in 2014! Much love to Duktus again for perhaps the sickest artwork till now.

Henry Wu is a very talented producer from Peckham, South East London, by way of Taiwan. A few months ago he released an EP on 22a Recordings including the song “All Over” featuring Dziko aka Shepard Manyika on vocals and Mo Kolours on percussion. This was a limited vinyl only press and has completely sold out. Unfortunately the song is not due to come out digitally any time soon, so we asked Mr. Wu if we could share this with the world.

Last week sir Benny Badge blessed us with the new Freekwency album. I recon “Seal The Deal” sounds like being in the middle of the early eighties. It’s Funk at it sleaziest (in the best way possible). Of course partly thanks to contributions from Cazeaux O.S.L.O., Charli James, Jordan Ruru, Ale Chambers & De Konichiwa. So as I was carefully selecting which songs to stream, I found myself searching for that heavy headnod material with a heavy groove. And just when I was browsing on Soundcloud (for something totally different) my eye caught a glimpse of this Yam Who? edit. I guess it was meant to be in this post! Enjoy this wonderful Funk-filled album and purchase if you like what you hear.

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.
