Funky Fraiche Friday [09.21.2012]

This weeks edition of “Funky Fraiche Friday” comes to you live and direct from my couch, hungover as shit, on Saturday morning. Yes, I ate pizza last night, and yes, I ended up face down on my couch instead of my unbelievably comfortable king-sized bed. So basically, feeling somewhat defeated today after an unsuccessful trip to Brooklyn and a failed foursome…yea, you heard me. But hey, it’s sunny out, and i’ll be frolicking in Central Park with a bunch of other likeminded house music lovers in about 8 hours while we have a little partay with the crew from Size Records. Yea, I see you Steve. Get it. So, before you get back on that horse today, check out our menu of funky beats.

Can you feel it coming? Late Nite Tuff Guy can. And it feels like money.

Here is some a dat new RAC shit. One free download, one new mix. Both very essential.

Crazibiza is one of my all-time favorite duos in house music. Always funky, always fraiche, and always dependable for sexy, delicious house music. Example a…live from Amnesia, Ibiza this July 4th.

Tracklist via Souncloud…i’m just being really lazy. Sorry I’m not sorry.

Here is another Ibiza-worthy mix from an absolute ledg, Dimitri From Paris. Throw this on when you’re cruising around town today. It’s the dopeness.

This is some creative shit right here from Baauer. Turn on your wild side with dat trap shiat. Grab the free download here.

Some crazy, funky electro from Tommie Sunshine. Wallace opened for him at Southside in NYC last week. Take our word for it…it got weird.

This is what it’s all about. Have a great weekend kids.

RELEASE: Kaskade & Skrillex – Lick It (Original Mix)[Ultra]

Though Kaskade’s collaboration with Skrillex titled “Lick It” was good? Try these remixes on for size. They each have a distinct style. Norman Doray goes progressive piano and synth melodies, Alex Kenji obviously keeps you boucin’ on the funkier side, and then Datsik gets down and dirty with some dubstep womping. Starting out with the best:

Kaskade & Skrillex – Lick It (Norman Doray Remix)Beatport Link – $$$$ Progressive. Fraiche. Feel good about being bad.

Kaskade & Skrillex – Lick It (Alex Kenji Remix)Beatport Link – $$$ Funkaliciousness. Housey shit.

Kaskade & Skrillex – Lick It (Datsik Remix)Beatport Link – $$ If you’re into the womp, then you will dig this. Very little of this relates to the original, but you can definitely get weird to it.
 Lick it.

PREVIEW: Seamus Haji & Cevin Fisher – I Love Miami (Manuel De La Mare & Alex Kenji Remix)[Strictly Rhythm]

However, with the help of the multi-talented legends that make up Sympho Nympho, Erick Morillo, Henery “Choo Choo” Romero, and Jose Nunez, the Subliminal team produced a big-room house anthem that has been receiving big praise from all over the industry, including a world premiere on Pete Tong’s radio show on BBC Radio 1.
