Chris Dave and the DRUMHEDZ, comprised of members Pino Palladino on bass, Kebbi Williams on sax, Isaiah Sharkey/Tim Stewart on guitar, Pookie on keys, and Chris Dave himself on drums; headed out on the road for a Europe tour and promised to give everyone that subscribed to the mailinglist some goodies. They have just announced the release date for their forthcoming mixtape together with this video and a J Dilla “Welcome 2 Detroit” cover. The “DRUMHEDZ” mixtape will be out Tuesday Dec 11 and will definitely be nominated for tape of the year.


1000 Fellas, But No Ladies?:

It’s been a while since we posted a Paul Pre mix, but I thought it was a good idea to share his latest “1000 Fellas” mix. He made this one to celebrate the fact he has reached 1000 followers on Mixcloud. This one has a little bit of everything and sounds kinda smooth. Lets face it…can’t go wrong with two Thundercat songs right!?! Enjoy and make sure to follow Moovmnt as well as Paul Pre on Mixcloud for that sound you like.


Moar Funk!:

After a lot of positive responses to the 1st “The Future of Funk” mix, me and Mr. Speak decided we wanted to do another one. It wasn’t very easy to keep the quality high, but we did our best on the sequal. I’m very pleased to present to you: “The Future of Funk” Pt. 2. Now Modern Funk music is still pretty niche so we’d like to contribute to the cause in our own way, since we’re not musicians ourselves. Big shout out to artists for hitting us up with music and special thanks to Tokyo Dawn Records who are releasing their “The Boogie” Vol. 2 compilation soon! Get ready for a 40 minute ride down the nasty side.

Go listen to it over at Soundcloud or grab the free download..

Food For Soul:

Chief Beatmaker just sent over the second mix from the “Seasons” project called “Fall”. The selection was done by Boo and Chief mixed things up on this one. Nothing but dope beats including some exclusive cuts from Mr. Dibiase, Ta-ku, Sunclef, Deheb and Chief himself. We’ll be posting mixes more often so don’t hesitate to send over some. However we are very picky about our mixes. In case we do not reply to your submission please remember we have look at it or listened to it first. Grab this free download by right clicking below and enjoy.

So the new Osunlade album is due next week on Yoruba Records of course. Can’t wait for “Pyrography” to drop, because this one song “Solemait?” promises to be breathtaking! This sounds like an album everyone can enjoy, whatever your taste in music is. Last but not least…the album art is sick as well. For a free high quality download of this 10 minute preview mix click HERE. More about this release next week when it drops.

A while back we decided we wanted to make a mix containing some music that we normally don’t post about that often. It’s a fine line, but this mix definitely crosses that line on several occasions. With the Dutch 5daysoff event around the corner we thought it would be suiting to name this the “5daysoff Moovmnt Mix”. Some more Dance orientated music in this mix, meant for the dancefloor rather than your iPod. Also sent this mix in for a contest, so three birds with one stone. I hope most of you like this, but I know some of you won’t. Long story short…give it a listen. If you love it great. If you hate it no problem.

Hold the phone…stop what your doing. If you’re a producer, a vocalist, an instrumentalist or a DJ you should pay attention. Applications for the Red Bull Music Academy 2011 have begun. This year the RBMA hits Tokyo in a big way and we urge you to apply! This once in a lifetime opportunity will take you on a musical journey that will influence you in so many ways. We’re not going to tell you what the RBMA exactly is, because you should know by now. In case you don’t…educate yourself.

Last year we thought it would be a good idea to put all our favourite songs from the “Various Assets” CD’s together in one short mix. Enjoy our “Most Valuable Assets” mix and good luck filling out the application form.


Paul Pre made a mix for BTG with soulful foundations and heavy emphasis on bass. Cover art by Ross Gunter and tracklist after the jump…get it, get it.
