Back in 2010 Benny Tones released his album, “Chrysalis”, wich came out via BBE Records. Might have been a while since we last heard from Benny, but that’s mostly because he’s been busy touring the globe with Electric Wire Hustle. On his travels he did however meet many musicians and producers. This resulted in “Chrysalis – The Remixes”, a collection of 30 remixes from producers such as fLako, B.Bravo, Christoph El Truento, AD Bourke, Dizz1, Tayreeb, Sola Rosa and Comfort Fit.
So here’s an almost unimaginable post from me. What…a new Prince song? And wasn’t I that guy that never had any musical interest in the artist formerly known as whatsoever? Correct! However I did come across an almost eerie website where you get shushed by this woman with three eyes. It’s Prince’s new merchant site and allows you to purchase 4 songs. Something sexy as “Breakfast Can Wait” should be bumpin’ through your speakers. Regardless if you’re a fan of Prince or not. (Spotted at PinBoard)
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?
