WallflowerFood – Feel Good Holiday Playlist

artworks-000066189438-7tmtxx-t500x500

My boys over at WallflowerFood have been doing some serious soundcloud research. They specialize in those funky, deep, tropical, feel good vibes and always put together solid playlists full of fun, happy music. Wherever you are for the holidays, press play, turn up the volume, and find your beach. Playlist features originals from the likes of Bit Funk and RAC, remixes and edits from some new talents like Kygo and Thomas Jack, who are rumored to be working on a collaboration for 2014 (you can say i’m excited for that track…boner), and they even throw in some nu school edits of classics like Stardust‘s “Music Sounds Better With You” and Leo Reed‘s “Take A Walk On The Wild Side.” There are 32 tracks in this playlist and I for one downloaded at least 25 off the list. So basically, I’m just saying…get them while they’re hot.

MIXTAPE: Louis La Roche Radio Show – April 2013 [Free Download]

This mix is 100% pure gold. Full of must have, must play nu disco, indie dance, electronic funky fraicheness that will have you begging for more. The piano is superb, synths are ever so succulent, and the baselines…oh ze baselines. My lord they are good. Literally every single track in here is worth a download, and I would even venture to say that if you don’t download at least some of these immediately, you should just delete AYNE from your memory. We cannot help you. Anyways, Louis La Roche is definitely one of our favorites and a staple of our Funky Fraiche Friday post since it’s inception. He’s keepin’ it funky, holdin’ onto that groove nice and tight. We respect that. Tracklist features the new single from Russ Chimes called “Turn Me Out.” Yea, it’s essential. And also included is a special previously undisclosed remix of A-Trak and Tommy Trash collab, “Tuna Melt.” It’s quite special. Obviously there’s Louis’ remix of Calvin Harris‘s “I Need Your Love,” but what really sets the tone for the whole mix is the eternally fresh original from Roman D’amour. The man is a legend. I mean, let’s be honest…he’s the guy behind “Make Love Tonight.” Yea you’re probably thinking of the Lifelike remix…oh hey, you know what, Roman is on his label…coincidence? I think not. These frenchmen know whats up.

Funky Fraiche Friday [08.24.2012]

Ahhh Friday, my favorite day of the week. I’m currently in a Starbucks in Manhattan with the shitiest wifi connection ever, but hey, at least its free…which is more than I can say for pretty much everything else in this city. Doing your laundry costs more than a handy dandy at a massage joint. It’s getting old real fast. But that’s neither here nor there. Let’s get into the funk, shall we?

First off, we have a new mix from Zimmer. He describes it on his Soundcloud: “First part is very pop and full of bright colors, then things get a bit deeper.” Sounds great to me. Full tracklist will be available on Sunday. Hey, the man has priorities.

Next we have a free track from Club Feet and Softwar. Get familair with both of these guys if you dig the mellow, deeper vibes. I think of sunsets, cocktails, and cool summer breezes when I listen to this track. If you’re not in a good mood today, you need this.

Here we have Lenno’s latest summer mix. If you couldn’t tell from past postings, we have quite the hard-on for this Finish talent. And honestly, you’d be crazy not to. Track selection on this one is elite.

Tracklist:

Breakbot – One Out Of Two (Oliver Remix) 
Bit Funk – It’s My Love 
Gigamesh – Your Body 
Eumig & Chinon – This Fang 
Sohight – Get It Right (Patchwork Remix) 
Koobra – Only You feat. Joanna 
Aston Shuffle – Won’t Get Lost (’96 Bulls Remix) 
Strip Steve – Hood 
Justice – New Lands (Falcon Remix) 
Anna Lunoe & Touch Sensitive – Real Talk

Foster The People – Don’t Stop (Oliver Remix) 
Roman D’Amour – Make Love Tonight (Lifelike/Lenno Re-edit) 
Pryda vs The Temper Trap – Mighty Love vs Sweet Disposition (Lenno Mashup) 
Russ Chimes – Back 2 You 
Timo Juuti & Hector 87 – Cheap Bad Moves

Here are previews of 2 upcoming releases from Bastian Van Shield. The dudes baselines are epic. And both tracks are essential, so pay attention.

And finally, this weeks post couldn’t be complete without the new Booka Shade EP that just came out on Steve Aoki’s label, Dim Mak. It’s safe to say these bros are talented. Below are the original versions. Visit the Dim Mak Soundcloud page or Beatport for the club mixes.

When in doubt, make it funky.
