FREE DOWNLOAD: Nest HQ MiniMix – Amtrac

Amtrac

Yet another shining example of why Amtrac is one of my favorite artists in electronic music. Constantly pushing the boundaries while maintaing that dark, melodic groove he is known for. Amazing track selection on the mix. Features his new original called “Walkin’,” which is fresh as fuck. Not to mention “Drop The Dow” from Round Table Knights and that following remix from BeatauCue. Both are funky as shit, and I am 100% confident they destroy up the dance floor…ok fine, the entire mix accomplishes that. Let’s just leave it at this…the man is talented and has superb taste. Can’t wait to see him live.


PREVIEW: Bondax – Gold (Moon Boots Remix)

Moon Boots FTW… It’s times like these I wish Soundcloud had a repeat button. Some of you will recognize this from The Magician‘s most recent Magic Tape mix. Real tasteful.

Funky Fraiche Friday [12.7.2012]

We’re back with another edition of “Funky Fraiche Friday” kids. Been kinda busy lately, so this one is gonna be fairly compact. I have a couple mixes for you that have really been helping with my patience while in excel all week, and I have also included a select few tracks that are simply essential. Have a good weekend and keep it fraiche.

To start it off we have a free download from Jaytech. It’s oh sooooo delicious. It will most definitely be on the playlist for tonight. Count on it NYC.

Sharam Jey continues to blow my mind. Track by track, his forthcoming album, “Bunny Tiger,” is shaping up to be a masterpiece. A ton of original stuff like this one. This will definitely be one of those times where you want every track. Dude is a g…for genius.

Bondax is one duo who always does it right. Productions are tiiiiight and mixes are spot on. Check out their free mix for Fader Magazine. It features a ton of unreleased stuff. Gotta respect that about them.

Can’t express how much I love this mix. Listened to it twice already today. So smooth…dare I say silky…But yea, sorry, no tracklist till Sunday…oh well. Sometimes it’s fun to do some research for yourself. Therapeutic really. Go to his Facebook this Sunday for the full tracklist, and while your there, show Zimmer some love.

Everyone can agree with this statement…The Knocks are 100% cash money in pretty much every way. And the intro to this mix…might be the best thing I have ever heard. Ever. And the mix as a whole is the best mix I have heard from the NYC duo in some time.
