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.
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 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?

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.

Falcon Punch should always be in your weekly rotation. “The mix as you may have guessed is Cocktail Hour inspired with sensual toe-tappers just edging you on to the dancefloor….but not too much, this is a cocktail party.” Grab a drink. You deserve it.

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.
Here is some new RAC ish that they are giving away on Soundcloud for free. It is a cover of a Daft Punk classic, “Something About Us.” Sidenote…wtf is up with the new Daft Punk album? Weren’t there rumors of this brilliance happening in some dark room?
