Any Way You Wanna


HUGE heaps of appreciation to all my friends & fam who made it out to The Virgil on Saturday for a truly epic Planet Rock anniversary bash (and especially to DJ Cato who surprised us with a customized chocolate cake). I felt like taking it back to some old-school soulful, funky sounds this week, so here’s a few gems I’ve been saving up in that department- plus some newbies that are pushing that spirit solidly into the future.

Harold Butler :       Do It Anyday
vintage stepper’s reggae take on a disco classic

William De Vaughn :       Be Thankful For What You Got (FKJ Remix)
this laid back low-rider staple just got a nice kick in the ass from upcoming funkster FKJ

Kerrier District :       Illogan
I had forgotten about this record produced by Luke Vibert in ’04, almost ten years old but still sounding fresh to me

The Temptations :       Papa Was Rollin' Stoned (DiscoTech Re-Edit)
another nice flip of a soul classic, this one from a soulful Swede

Donny Hathaway :       The Ghetto (Dmitri From Paris Inna Disco)
Dimitry excels in that subtle touch magic, giving new dancefloor life to one of my all-time favorites

John Newman :       Love Me Again
this one is probably old news to any Brits reading, but is brand new to me. Gotta give young Mr. Newman props for paying homage to the Northern Soul dance scene in the video too.

Jagwar Ma :       Come Save Me (Flight Facilities Graceland Remix)
I already knew FF were took inspiration from Paul Simon when they released their dubby edit of “You Can Call Me Al”, but this remix just takes that Graceland love to a whole new level.

Moon Boots :       Love Strong
this guy just keeps on hitting homeruns

Tiny Hearts :       Snow Cold &       Centerfold
new electro-soul-pop project from Wajeed & peoples, check it out

Starship Connection :       We Can Go All Night
my dude Teeko has a funk band, and they curated a sick compilation on Brooklyn’s best record label, and you should do yourself a favor and GET IT NOW!

The Internet :       Partners In Crime
on repeated listens, this is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums of the year.

The House That Funk Built


Coming at you all the way live from Oakland, CA, where the candy painted cars roll slow past local organic non-GMO everything. Had the extreme pleasure of hanging out with my best friend’s new baby (the same elusive Ixley who designed this site, and is currently working on the re-design). Feel free to congratulate the new papa in the comments if you care to, I’ll make sure he reads em. Not a lot of time to go into descriptions on all these tracks today, but trust me that they are winners! Mostly brand new tunes with a few older joints that I’ve just discovered with a lil help from my friends (Canyon Cody, DJ Just, Audiomoe, Shrimp Scampi– I SEE YOU). If you get inspiration from looking at pictures of funky-as-hell refurbished condemned buildings (like the one above), then take a heads up from my brother DJO and check out more about the Heidelberg Project in Detroit. And finally, all you people in the LA area, come through the new weeknight party that I’m doing in Hollywood with a great line-up of deejays and a beautiful spacious dancefloor: STACKED.

The Internet :       Dont'cha

Zero 7 :       Don't Call It Love

Boom Clap Bachelors :       L-O-V-E

Capital Cities :       Safe & Sound (RAC Remix)

Hot Natured :       Reverse Skydiving (ft. Anabel Englund)

Wankelmut & Emma-Louise :       My head Is A Jungle (Gui Borrato Remix)

Fantastic Mr. Fox :       The Trap

The Presets :       Girl And The Sea

Stevie Wonder :       Superstition (The Flexican & SirOJ Moom Remix)

Drake ft. Majid Jordan :       Hold On We're Going Home

Jordan Bratton :       Midnight Rage
