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.

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.

Beautiful Booties

Here are some of my favorite bootlegs so far this summer accompanied by some equally amazing derrières. Enjoy.

Pryda vs. Temper Trap – Mighty Sweet Disposition (eSQUIRE Bootleg)

“A moment of love.”

Nadia Ali & Alex Sayz vs. Moguai & Tommy Trash – Free To N’ Out (Project 46 Mashup)

“You are free to love. No ones holding you down.”

AN21 & Max Vangelli vs. Steve Angello vs. Otto Knows, ATB, Cristina Soto – Twisted H8RS (Third Culture’s Vocal Bootleg)

“Isn’t that twisted?”

Denzal Park vs. Kings Of Tomorrow – Finally Amarok (Electronique Project Bootleg)

“I knew you’d come knocking one day.”

Deadmau5, Noisa – Some Chords, Hard Into Ghosts, Machine Gun (Porter Matchup)

“Do want to take a leap of faith?”


These tracks are underrated. Also, they happen to be perfect selections for this fine evening as well, so I guess good timing.
