DOWNLOAD: DAM FUNK-TRUTH

It’s been a while since I’ve posted my first mix from the Oki-Ni mix series Resonance. But I guess it took a while cause this was the one I was waiting for Truth by Dam Funk.

For those of you who are familiar with Dam Funk it should come as no surprise that the mix is full of funkelectric and poppy 80’s tunes. The one thing that puts this mix in a very different league than anything we have ever posted before is the fact that the whole thing is comprised of tracks taken from original wax pressings. In Mr. Funk’s words …. No mp3s or computer files were used for this mix, I own all of these records. No fake shit or fads; just the TRUTH. 

TRACKLIST
Larry Bright – Sunbeams
Fashion – Love Shadow
Onra – Moving
Norma Jean – High Society
Charles Earland – Tell Me What It Is
Paradise – Stop And Think
Glenn Jones – Everybody Loves A Winner
Oliver Cheatham – Something About You

This one is for all you music magicians out there. As you may remember I posted my feelings about Amalia’s Art Slave a little while ago and I simply loooooooooooove this album.

To mark the release of Amalia’s debut album ‘Art Slave’ this March, Tokyo Down Records launched a contest and all you have to do is remix Amalia’s most sensual track ‘All The Funk I Need’!

Interested in adding your flavah to this track?! … What if your version was picked for release?! Yeah … I know you like tha sound of that. So click here and you will be referred to the Tokyo Dawn Records website to grab the 411 on how to participate.Please .. be quick about it .. cause the contest runs till the end of March.  Below you can stream some of the freshly created remixes … just to give you a taste of what your up against .



AMALIA – ART SLAVE (NEW RELEASE) by Noggy

Dammnn where do I start. Just finished a full listen of this funkafied new release that will be available on the 4th of March 2011 via Tokyo Dawn Records.

Even though Art Slave by Amalia is an album full of brand new tracks … most of it feels like a trip down memory lane.

Life’s a Dance(Nu Opo Swing mix) by Amalia

If you really miss the “Chaka Khan” without Rufus or if you are still in mourning for the late Teena Marie … you can let it all go now. The self proclaimed airbreather, ventriloquist, body extortionist and most important … off da hook Swedish vocalist Amalia Townsend is bringing some old skool flavah to our 21st century ears.  With Swedish funk extraordinaire Opolopo on production Art Slave contains all the elements of the 80’s and 90’s funk. The fact is that if I didn’t know about the releasedate I would have started crate digging for this one  because apart from some electronic remixes in the end you cannot tell it dropped in 2011… it feels that authentic. 

Of course if you can’t wait to get down to this and groove to tha boogie you can also go for the electronic pre-release available here but I’m in fact comtemplating of buying a record player (after all those years without) because I would just love to have this in vinyl.



THE INSANE WARIOR (RJD2) – WE ARE THE DOORWAYS (NEW RELEASE) by Noggy

Hmmm really dig this. Cause eventhough it’s totally RJD2 for some reason it’s also totally different and therefore very interesting.

Introducing RJD2’s or better yet The Insane Warior’s latest project ..”We are the Doorways”. Now what exactly makes this release so interesting ? … Just the fact that the inspiration behind this creation happens to be horror and sci-fi film scores of the wonderfully fruitful period of 1976-1984. The musical result of this unusual perspective are a lot of electronical  tunes which burst into something that could be anything from jazzy to funky to pshychedelic … but eitherway always unexpected. This musical masterpiece is available on the RJD2 bandcamp.

If now you are curious about what the abovementioned could possibly sound like. Hit the play button below and stream the video to the track “The Water Wheel”.

Or even better stream the full release below and if you dig do not forget to download “Then you hear footsteps” which is downloadable for free till it reaches the bandcamp download limit of course … anyways enjoy!!
