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 .

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.
