The Funk Hunters & Chali 2na – ILLectric EP

Happy Funky Friday y’all!

Homies Nick and Dunks have just delivered a new EP! With who else but the legendary rapper from the Jurrasic 5, Chali 2na. The production is heavy and funky and god damn can Chali 2na flow.

The pairing of west coast bass funk and the iconic rapper shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The boys productions have always been steeped in hip hop influence and 2na slips into the genre like a fish into water.

Get ready to Funk the Halls this December when they do back to back shows at The Commodore Ballroom.

Sassy Preview: Chet Faker

I’ve been a huge Chet Faker fanboy since the first time I saw him at Sasquatch. I’m a Sasquatch fanboy in general but guess what.. Chet is playing Sasquatch again! Not surprisingly hes on a bigger stage and the hype train is rolling out of the station folks so all aboard.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Fout Tet

Four Tet is one of those producers who I know is popular and talented but I never got exposed to him cuz he’s kinda weird and definitely not mainstream. Well not only have I come to realize that I’m missing out of some weirdly awesome music but this guy is playing at Sasquatch. If there’s a place for me to find a groove into a genre I wouldn’t normally slide into, it’s at a music festival. It’s what happened to me with Tycho and I cant stop listening to that guy.

Four Tet, I think I haven’t given you the chance to let me fall in love with you but I’m gonna tap into my younger me’s impressionable mind and see if we can make something click here. My guess is yes.

 

 

The Cocktail Hour ft. Viceroy

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve featured Viceroy on the Cocktail Hour. But lets face it, hes the embodiment of feel good Friday music. He’s Mr. SummertimeAllTheTime, baby. An inspiration in the winter time but when you get to cut out work early for a weekend getaway and the sun is shining then his flavor of tropical grooves is just what you’re looking for to drive off into the sunset.

Happy Friday, everybody!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Para One

IM GOING TO PARIS! I scoured the interwebs for some wicked French House shows and I found a few! Cherokee, Brodinski, off to a good start. But then I found Para One doing a show at a place called La Bellevilloie. Para One is Ed Banger. Ed Banger is life. The choice was obvious.

See you next week my friends.

Some Flume

I love Flume. Been a while since I’ve posted his stuff and I’ve got a few tracks I’d like to share!

His two latest uploads to Soundcloud are a couple beauties. Some Minds features Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow (yes that one) and is quite the slow burner. It of course pays itself off with some big drums and crisp bleeps and bloops. <– Descriptive, I know.

Collarbones on the other hand is a monster from immaculate conception. 30 seconds in and your chest is already filled with bass and somehow he continues crash bigger and bigger basslines throughout the song. Topped off with the explosiveness of what could only be described as fireworks. This song is reason enough to see flume on a big stage outside.

Lastly is a remix I’ve been sitting on for a while. I have a much larger appreciation for Yolanda Be Cool after Burning Man, much beyond that Americano song. This song has a massive emotional build and Flume does a masterful job in bringing the whole thing to a monstrously powerful climax. In Flume fashion, please listen to these tracks loud. Close your eyes and let the drums wash over you.
