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!
It takes beautiful new music from The Internet to get me back to writing something again. I guess there comes a time in life when priotities change, but the memory remains “Timeless”. Enjoy this soulful piece of yum!
Grooveman Spot just released a brand new slow jam called, “Distance”, featuring Marter. The single is a Japanase stepper and no doubt about love and seperation. Sounds like 2014 is going to be quite an interesting year especially in the land of the rising sun! Be on the look out for more of that smack to make you bounce.
Now we believe that Snoop Dogg needs no introducting. His Snoopzilla alias was brought to life when he decided to work together with Dam-Funk on the funk-flavored project “7 Days of Funk”. After they met at the SXSW music festival in 2011, they began a 7 day funky ride which includes guest features from Kurupt, Steve Arrington and Bootsy Collins. Head on over to the Stones Throw store to get you vinyl, CD or digital freak on!
We recently informed you about Benedek‘s “untitled” release on PPU Records. Good new….this L.A.-based modern funk producer is about to release a brand new double-sided 12″-inch on Proximal Records. Might be a bit of a different house-influenced sound, but quite nice if you ask us. Go ahead and check it out on the Proximal Bandcamp page!
