FREE TRACK from me - Straight Out Of Charleston

I'm basically making up genres as I go here, but I thought "what would happen if you took the heavy drums and bass plus hip-hop vocal cuts ethos of Ghetto Funk, and used some 30's jazz samples instead of 70's funk...? Well, basically, this... and I'm calling it Ghetto Jazz.
And, you'll be pleased to know, I'm giving it away for free, no catch!

Rory Hoy - brand new 12"

My man Rory Hoy is one of my favourite producers, always bringing the heat... and here he is again with a brand new 12" for the mighty Big M Records...
4 cuts of sick big-beat type funk... all with Rory's signature tight, musical production firmly stamped on them. This one is probably my favourite - teaming up with the legendary Freddy Fresh and making great original breaks...
Go get it today!

Dope Horn EP - Totalcult & Lebrosk

What happens when you take 2 of the Nu-Funk scene's brightest lights, mix them together, throw in some classic breaks and samples, and simmer? Well, this:
Totalcult & Lebrosk - Dope Horn EP
They've both been busily churning out party-centric nu-funk for a hot minute, and this collaboration sees them take on remixing duties for each other's track... with pretty funky results!
Using classic riffs, breaks and b-lines, they still manage to make these tracks sound fresh, and they'll knock down any dancefloor, I'd wager.
Out May 13th on Juno and other good stockists...

In anticipation of the release of 'Apiculture', The Beekeepers debut long player, one half of the duo, monsieur Parker, has teamed up with Mystro to knock together this rather lovely dubstep remix of a tune from the album 'Queen Bee'. And they're giving it away free. Which is nice.

New Telephunken fire

I've been an admirer of Telephunken for some time, as those who check my mixes will know, so when I was asked to remix his latest track 'Shake Your Monkey' I was over the moon. Here's the original.

Shake your Monkey by Telephunken

I wanted to make sure I did it justice, yet I didn't really want to change much as I thought the original was pretty much exactly what I'd write if it was me... so I made sure the drums were tight, ramped up the bass settings to 'filth overdrive' and let the song do the rest of the work! Out soon on Pig Balls Records.

Also forthcoming on Pig Balls Records, Telephunken has done a huge remix for Pulpfusion's track Sex, Drums, Funk n Roll (y'all will no doubt already be familiar with my remix of this track ;-) ), and it's a belter! Really great drums and bass... definite dancefloor filler. I've heard most of the remixes for this release, and it is shaping up to be one of the best releases of the summer.
