Has it really almost been 1 1/2 years since we brought you the last Future of Funk mix? So sorry we left you funkless for such a long period of time, but with a new website comes new inspiration. Mr. Speak and I picked up were we left off in 2011 and are happy to present to you: The Future of Funk 3. In case you missed out on previous previous The Future of Funk mixes, get hip and educate yourselves.
Sirr Om’Mas Keith, best known from the age of Sa-Ra, released his “City Pulse” solo album…FOR FREE. Of course with Thundercat on bass and Erykah Badu on vocals, there is nothing to complain about. Might not be my favorite work from Om’Mas, but I am really feenin’ “All 4 You” featuring miss Badu and Shafiq Husayn!
We’ve been keepin’ an ear out for Rotterdam-based producer Moods for a while now. Rumor has it he might be working on a Seravince remix, but I will neither deny nor will I confirm this vicious rumor (wink). On the latest Birdview Crew compilation series, “February.EP”, we hear some nice beats from Portformat, Maximoe and Moods.
Earlier this week I sent out an email requesting a promo copy of Bilal‘s upcoming “A Love Surreal” album. Hope to wrap my ears around this one soon, but in the meanwhile peep this introductional video directed by Hans Elder. This hold you guys down untill the 26th of February right?
C’mon fill me up, I need more in my cup! It was a few years ago already that Chris Turner popped up on our radar. He provided us with some of that “LiquidLOVE” back then and has now returned with some tasty New School footage to go with the audible love. Enjoy the video and get ready for spring!
It is said that the Germans and the Dutch don’t get along very well. In the case of long time music friend, Front2blaq, this is very untrue. In fact we have love for a lot of German cats (don’t get me wrong here). Anyhow, Marcus kicks off our Guest Mix series with the loneliest number known to man. He pleasantly surprised us with a very personal selection that I in fact am very fond of. Oh and a special shout out to Duktus for providing the nice artwork! Snatch up a free download if you like.
