Mixtape Riot Menu


Wherever You Go

Back on the road again (thus the lag in posting). The pic above comes courtesy of my new homie DJ SUN who kinda runs all things funky in Houston, TX. I had a whirlwind stay with the man where we managed 4 dj gigs in 3 days, got busy in the studio on a new track, and played lots of funk 45’s. Oh yeah, and then there was that $600 bottle of wine that we drank… Big shouts to The ARE, Krystal Hardwick and all the other cool people I met and chilled with in H-Town.

Then I stopped in NOLA for an action packed reunion with my Beatards brothers. Much more drinking, eating of amazing food, dancing to live music, and general tomfoolery ensued- as well as some very fruitful record digging (which you’ll hear more about soon). But for now, while I’m stranded in the Philly airport on a delayed layover, some tunes! Good ones at that. Props to another new friend of mine, DJ THC, for a bunch of today’s selections.

Munk :       Tipsy? &       Violent Love
taken from this recent album which I highly recommend. Tripped out funky mid-tempo disco with bouncy vocal melodies that have a tendency to stay with me long after the song is over (check “Kitchen Call” for a prime example).

Midnight Magic :       Beam Me Up &       What The Eyes Can't See
irresistible from the first conga slap. This disco group from BK stands out with powerful vocals and a hilarious sense of humor

Hypnolove :       Holiday Reverie
perfect song title for my week. Really a sucker for the percussion and afro-pop style guitar intro on this one. Check out their Holiday Reverie EP

Penguin Prison :       Don't Fuck With My Money
the man makes perfect sense, and does it over a synth groove that would leave Prince drooling. I think we all can relate.

Jessica 6 :       East West Funk
just saw them open for Holy Ghost in NOLA this past weekend and was very pleasantly surprised when I realized I was seeing members of Hercules & Love Affair on stage without even realizing it. More here.

WhoMadeWho :       The Plot (Discodein Remix) ,       Motown Bizarre , &       Small Town City
Found out about this group by the old tried-and-true-over-the-shoulder-dj-trainspotting technique I’ve been working to master for 10 years.  “Motown Bizarre” has just the right amount of fucked-uppedness.

Gregory Porter :       1960 What? (Opolopo Bass & Kick Rerub)
So happy to share this new soul jazz gem. The OG version didn’t need much tweaking (already such a winner), but I really respect the subtle touches that Opolopo added to make this one just that much more devastating.
