You might have noticed that BBE has been releasing some real quality compilations lately. One I’ve been looking forward to is this new “DJ Spinna presents: The Boogie Back” album that will be out November 24th. We uploaded the “Boogie Bundle Mix” to our Mixcloud and just like the “Strange Breaks & Mr. Thing Vol. II” you can give it a listen, before you decide to purchase it HERE. Here’s what BBE had to say about the compilation…
A cornerstone of Hip-Hop’s late 90’s indie-uprise, DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12″ singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era’s lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn’t have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn’t accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene. At the height of indie-kingpin Rawkus Records heyday, Spinna was in demand, also churning out timeless classics of the era from the likes of J-Live, Mr. Complex and The Polyrhythm Addicts (his all-too-brief collabo-group with Apani B., Shaabam Sadeeq and Complex). Spinna is back with his latest foray into the world of boogie.
Paul Pre is on a killin’ spree. Last week he dropped a mix with Musique Large, this week he’s dropping this Moovmnt mix hosted by us and who knows what he’s dropping next week. Paul describes this mix as a relaxed mix for the autumn mood. Nice selection and hop you all enjoy this one. Tracklist after the jump..and best believe it’s full of laid back electronic music. You can also check out this mix on our Mixcloud.
Flwrpt is at it again. This time bringing us a very entertaining “Autumn” mix. If you haven’t been checking out their blog filled with posts about original/sample music, some good ol’ funk and soul and a critical look at the cover art as well. To top it off they also bless the Internet with nice mixes like this one. Mixing deep house, nu-soul, r&b, and electronic music into one sound, hopefully you all can feel it! Cover art + mixed by Darien Victor Birks of Flwrpt. Tracklist after the drop…as usual.
This ain’t your mama’s crusty old beat tape! These are “The Original Recipes” – a collection of Cook Classics beats from the last few years. They managed to plug about 40 beats into a twenty minute set by the incredible DJ Seano. The tape starts with hip hop, but by the end you’ll be dancing like a teeny-bopper to some serious pop and uptempo production. To all the beat-jacking loop builders out there, we kindly introduce the funky chicken and our favorite lazer sounds to make your life just a little more difficult. Remember, this is only a small selection of hundreds of Cook beats, so if you want to work, hit me up! It’s time to cook, biatch!
After many succesful ‘Strange’ series (remember those classic “Strange Games and Things” compilations?) it’s about time BBE released a sequal to “Strange Breaks”. It’s successor is called “Strange Breaks & Mr. Thing Vol. 2” and is set to release tomorrow as a digital release. For those who don’t know…Mr. Thing scratches shit up like an angry hooker in a catfight. Eighteen of the best kept breaks are mixed together for your listening pleasure just to give you a taste. If you want to own each and every single one of these rarities, be sure to buy this sick ass compilation HERE. In the meanwhile visit our Mixcloud to check out the mix!
Without further ado…Mixing Monthly Millionaires Present: Full Crate – “Feel Like Makin’ Love”. Basically this is an old mix that my man Crate had lying around from a while back and he didn’t want to keep it from ya’ll. We were supposed to host this mix, but due to the malware issues we were having our buddy Nalden picked this one up. A nice new classic soul mix to make love to…isn’t that what nearly every Full Crate song is made for 😉 Tracklist cound be found after the jump..and photo credits to Pat Jay.
Last weekend Dam-Funk touched down in Rotterdam and tore the roof off! After this Strange Fruit saga, there will be a sequal or as you will a second chance for those that missed out. This time we contacted the fellas from Plat du Jour and told them we were doing a sequal to the DAMN…FUNK!?! promotional mix. MRP and me wanted to dig a lot deeper this time and behold the outcome – DAMN…MORE FUNK!?! – Thirtyfive minutes of nasty, sweaty funk covered with some nu-boogie flavour sprinkled on top. We’re proud to bring you our second Boogie/Funk mix and we hope you enjoy it as much or even more as you did the first one. Don’t forget to check out Dam-Funk Oct. 22nd at the Plat du Jour ADE special in the Bitterzoet (Amsterdam). Big up to Brutuzz who will be playing that night and Deluge delivered a fine piece of artwork once again!
When we heard that Dam-Funk was coming over, MRP and me decided to get our funky strutt on and mix up a little Boogie/Funk mix. Enjoy these twentyfive minutes of pure, unadulterated Funk and get in the mood for Dam-Funk’s European tour. Our friends at Strange Fruit loved the idea and so we suggested this mix was to be used as a promotional mix for the Strange Fruit presents: Dam-Funk event, held on October 10th in Rotterdam. Thelonius & Lucky Dubz will be sound providers for the rest of the evenening so come one, come all and get ya boogie on! Deluge…thanks a million for the the artwork and peep the flyer (by Lucky) and tracklist after the jump.
And here we go again with another mix we did a while back. Really coming out of the woodworks with these mixes now that we got a Mixcloud account. This “Moovmnt Beat Special” mix, was played on Red Bull Music Academy Radio via djbroadcast at the Rooms of Red Bull. We never shared this one, but it has a couple of nice exclusive joints on there we know you’ll enjoy! Oh it was mixed by me, myself and MRP and photo credits go to MRP as well.
