When Stefloo heard about Stones Throw’s 7 Days of Funk video contest (ended Feb. 17th) they pulled an allnighter and designers this super dope retro game inspired music video for the song “High Wit Me”. The official contest winner will be announced next week, but in the meanwhile we lovin’ this entry a lot! [via: Ego Trip]
Our good friend Leno from Jakarta’s The Goodnws, hit me up to share the “Proportions” album from Exmag. Instantly tickling my ear, so here’s the 411! The group consists of Eric, Mike, Denis aka Gramatik Tyler aka SuperNicer and Bryn aka ILLUMNTR from Brooklyn NY. What they bring you is that soulful sound of the future. Fortunately for us they do so in the form of a gift. To get your hands on a free download just visit their Soundcloud page and hit the free download button. Their philosophy is “All art should be free. Donate to help create a better future for those who once were”. Of course a donation was made from the Moovmnt camp!
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.
Now we’ve been boogieing to The Boogie compilations since day one and it brings us great pleasure to announce that our friends at Tokyo Dawn Records are returning with “The Boogie Volume 4” next week. On here you will find music from Omar, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Opolopo, B. Bravo, Amalia, Reggie B, SoulParlor, Positive Flow, Dagger DX and many more. Take a listen to this preview and make sure to pre-order/buy the album in the TDR shop.
Ever since we heard this instrumental version, we were wondering what the Daz Dilly version would sound like. Well the single “What’s Yo Pleasure” featuring Snoop Dogg, off the “Weed Money” album, is officially out. Big brother DaM-FunK produced the track and it sound sho’ nuff funky! Available on iTunes.
