If you recall, I started this whole “Bootylicious” post awhile back. It focuses on mashups, bootlegs and edits that I have heard, accumulated and/or been playing recently, and as a supplement, we provide some classy photos of fine tushies. What more could you ask for?The menu for this week is impressive. Enjoy!
Ever since I found his mashup with Otto Knows “Million Voices” and “Fix You” by Coldplay, I have been following Zach on Soundcloud. He has support from big artitsts like Thomas Gold and always has solid ideas for fraiche new booties. Get familiar.
Third Culture has become an AYNE regular. Kyle Smith hails from Singapore and has a great ear. Check out his latest two mashups below. His new “Hype Mix” is one of the best true mashups have ever heard.
Yes, you are reading this correctly. It’s currently past 7:00 pm on Saturday and we are posting this weeks edition of Funky Fraiche Friday. Listen, some people actually have shit to do…for example, getting drunk and purchasing an 80in TV. Priorities. That said, this week we bring you one of the best essential mixes I have ever heard on BBC Radio 1. It comes from German DJ/Producer and Diynamic label owner, Solomun. He wakes up in the morning and shits fraicheness. If you can’t feel this mix in or around your private parts, just don’t talk to me. Get ready for 2 hours of some of the best house, funk, soul and hip-hop beats you will ever hear. Like the man himself puts it, “It’s not the sound, it’s about the selection of the tracks…but maybe there is one main thing that is for me very important, it is the groove, the baseline always need a warm nice groove…I love it if its colorful, because music is never one direction.” We couldn’t agree more.
Exclusive BBC1 Radio Mix from July 28th, 2012
Next on the menu is a new original track from The Knocks. They seem to be becoming a regular appearance on this post. Probably cause they funk shit up.
And here we have a simply fantastic Nu Disco style track from Touch Sensitive, out of Syndey, and Anna Lunoe called “Real Talk.” It has obvious deep house, funk and soul influences. Great baseline and secondary melodies that seem to mesh together almost as well as your memories from last night. It is currently #2 on the Beatport charts for Indie Dance/Nu Disco and is one of those songs that when it drops, you instantly feel sexy. Great vibes all around. Picture poolside terrace, sunset, beautiful people, and very little clothing. It’s comfortable.
The last little nugget I bring you is from the always funky, Tocadisco. It’s easily my favorite House rhythm of the summer. He remixes Milk & Sugar’s “Let The Sun Shine 2012″ and the result is nothing short of pure genius. Make love to the muthafuckin’ night kids.
Here are a few funky, sexy tracks that should put you in the summer state of mind. The baselines will move your body and infect your soul. And if nothing else, make you want to grab some buds and party.
The definition of a party is quite robust. In my favorite version, you just need a few ingredients. Good friends, good tunes, some refreshments, maybe a few doobs in rotation, and of course, clothing optional. These two tracks should help you take on whatever the night throws at you.
