On the One Free Download

Back in 2005, Frank and I put out our first LP on Sunswept music. If you haven't heard it, here it is via the Paranoid Sounds blog (thanks Jason L.)

I was going to post up the back story, and get all deep about it, but I can't go there yet. I enjoyed listening back to these tracks, it was interesting to see what we were coming up with back then as a lot of these songs were done in 03 and 04 respectively. Anyway, check it out.

Mash & Munkee "Work It Out EP"

So proud to have another release almost out on Funk Weapons, after having the baby and working the full time job and doing odd work on the weekends I find I have very little time these days for my beloved label. I finally got the artwork back and everything is wrapping up for this release, so excited about this one. It should be out by the end of June.

For our 24th release we wanted to go back to our classic Funk Weapons roots, and to do that we bring you Mash & Munkee aka David Hanke & Kolja Starkowski from Germany. They have produced three slices of supreme nu-funk goodness for all you break beat loving freaks. First off we start with “Work it Out”, a full on funk fest of horns, funky bass, and enough cracking break-beats to satisfy the nimblest of b-boys. “Giving you the Funk” does just that, complete with a jumping live bass-line, building horns and hip hop vocals and groove that eventually builds up to a nice fat synth bass-line that takes the track to the next level. “Make A Difference” gets all Ron Burgundy on us with some funky flute and smooth blaxplotation style horns and of course another funky bass-line to keep the kids body rocking. Finally we round out the package with Neighbour’s remix of “Make a Difference”, who remixes the track in his signature future-boogie style, complete with honking bass-line and smooth chords and injects back in the horns and flute to make the whole thing jam perfect for those late night roller-disco vibes.

Wynd Chymes - Baby You're The One - Rockmaster Rus B Re-Edit

Frank sent over this song the other day and wanted me to cut out the cheesy vocal, which I did for him. I then thought I would see what it sounded like with a little break thrown in and ended up cutting some parts from Lesson 7 which fit the song perfectly. The result is a funky disco breaks re-edit, which Im sure will sound lovely at your lounge or BBQ.

Frank and I go way back with Marc Hype, we were huge fans of his early releases and we traded songs back and forth so that we always had the hype ish. We ended up having him and Jim Dunloop remix our song Weakness of a Trade and we ended up remixing one of there songs for MPM. Anyway, Frank sent me this mix this morning and I was blown away. I love Marc Hype when he is getting raw in the mix like this..
