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.

RELEASE: Duke Dumont feat. A*M*E – Need U (100%) (Original Mix) [Blase Boys Club]

6564425

This one has been playing in my head for awhile now. Released today on Beatport, and is the first release from new label, Blase Boys Club. “Need U (100%)” is a new, funky house number from Duke Dumont – the same guy who brought us “The Giver,” which was a massive track in late 2012. This new one features the soulful vocal work of A*M*E and a sensual groove that should have you moovin’ and groovin’ all night long. If this isn’t on all of yours playlist within 30 seconds of listening to it…we won’t vibe.

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!

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.

Tracklist:

Bondax – Wet Summer [unreleased]
Giraffage – Moments [self release]
Transmission Collective – Lex [Transmission Audio Recordings]
Maribou State – Summerfolds [Southern Fried]

Bondax – Baby I Got That [Justus]

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.

1. Electric Feel – Cleast Eatwood (MGMT Cover)

Alex Metric is insanely talented. This track is among by personal favorites so far this month. It’s new release available on Beatport. I suggest you make the investment. Definitely worth more than $2. Play it loud and lose yourself a bit. After all…it is the weekend.

Lifelike always has something special in store when he releases a mix. This one is chalked full of new stuff and crazy stuff I have never heard. Once you finish the mix, consider yourself educated by one of the best in the biz.  I feel smarter.

Funky Fraiche Friday [11.09.2012]

As of late, this thing called a “job,” and the extracurricular activities that fill my free time have caused yet another missed week in the annals of Funky Fraiche Friday posting. That said, it’s time to get funky and we have quite the menu for you this week. Featured artists include Louis La Roche, RAC, Alex Metric, Pete Tong, Hot Since 82, Tradelove, Classixx, Star Slinger, and many more! Enjoy ze beats.

Passion Pit’s hit single received an elegant rework from Classixx. Take me to the clouds.

And now let’s get a bit more funky with some disco house. Solidisco has quickly become a go to in my sets when I need people on the dance floor movin’ those feet. Here is there latest release. It’s fraiche and free. Enjoy!

Here is a new mix from Star Slinger. It’s fantastically funky and soulful. You need it.

TRACKLIST:

1. BONDAX – I GOT THAT
2. CHRIS E. PANTS – PASS IT AROUND
3. PERSEUS – SEYCHELLES
4. STAR SLINGER – 4 CHRIST SAKE

Here we have two very different but equally solid remixes from Louis La Roche that will make you want to get rowdy. Our advice…don’t think about it. Do it.

Classixx on the original called “Stranger Love.” RAC on the remix. Simply essential. The vocals are angelic…in an indie way (whatever that means)…the beats are bouncy, and the groove is impecable.

Here is a naughty tech house remix from Tradelove. It’s dirty but ooooh so good.

Taken you a bit deeper on these next two. First one is a remix of Jean Winner’s “Alive And Kicking” from Zimmer. So sensual. Diggin’ this hard.

When Pete Tong puts out music…you listen. Check out this Hot Since 82 dub mix of his track “Dawn” featuring S.Y.F. Soooo deep, so funky.

Lastly, here is one of my favorite mixes of the past month. Defected only hosts the best DJs, and Miguel Campbell is just that. Top tier. His shit is just hot. What can you say?
