Ladies and gents, babies and bros, how we doin? It’s that time again. Time to get nice and funkay. Whether you like that tropical nu disco flavor or that techy shit, we have you covered. What if you prefer those deep house vibes? Well we got that too. This one is the last of 2012 so you know it’s gotta be big. Let’s dance people.
Let’s kick it off old school. Founds this one awhile back. Felt like it needed to be shared. So here you go. Turn it up, and as for what you were doing…FUNK that shit.
Now that we are all nostalgic…how about a couple nice old school edits from Casual Encounters? I think yes. We got some Montel, a classic house edit, and some Snoop.
For those of you into deep house, you are obviously familiar with Defected Records. It’s pretty special. Here are a few dope year end mixes featuring the top 50 rated tracks over the past year. Plus each mix has a guest mix. Guests include Simon Dunmare, Hot Since 82, and Sam Devine (recorded live at MoS…boss). Might want to grab a pen and paper for this one…and maybe a j…or two.

Here we have a mix recommended to me by Joey Chicago. This bro, Milty Evans has some serious underground, funky fraiche swag if ya ask me. Listen. You’ll feel it. This is a live recorded mix from Chitown. Great house scene. Respect. Can’t find the tracklist…sorry bout it.
Awhhhh yea, we movin’ it on some new Zimmer shit. I get deep, I get, I get, I get deepa.
Not sure what to call this…but it’s fraiche nonetheless. The original was a top 25 song on the pop charts and for good reason. Sooooo damn catchy. Love me some acoustic.
“I don’t wanna hurt no more…I just want someone to love me.” If you don’t feel that way sometimes, you’re not human. Patrick Podage and Three Piece Suit speak the truth.
I will leave you with this. TJR had a big 2013. What a way to end it. Can you say NYE?
Would have done more but…as you know…it’s party time. Cheers!
