Morlack "Where Do U Get Ur Funk From" Album

I have talked about Morlack before, as he did a really cool Go-Go remix recently that I was all over. He just sent over his new album and he has some really mean cuts on this thing. I thought Eternity and Semi Mash were the best cuts, I love the boogie samples on Eternity and the bass he adds really takes it up a notch.

Check out the album below and then be sure to grab his sweet Jane's Addiction remix below that.

Benny Hinn dropping bombs on ya

I was checking out some tunes this weekend and ran across this lovely chap Benny Hinn doing some good work. Dude is giving away a ton of great tunes on his Soundcloud and could use some love. Please make sure you comment or like if you decide to download dudes tunes. Let's get dudes play counts going a bit.

"Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin' vinyl back in 01' playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beatz for the masses... Although now only 31, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Wollongong and the Southcoast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finess and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200's."

Hey Rory, I listened to the preview at Juno, man, this e.p is dope! I love it, very special sound. Well done once again Mr Rory Hoy! :)

Just having a listen and really loving it, the production is really tight and there's some awesome refreshing ideas on here, Break Down In Paris is a big tune and Non Stop makes me wanna get behind the decks again! Refreshing is the word I think that sums it up for me. Great work.

I really like Break Down In Paris

Rockmaster Rus B / Zane Tee TTLAB Review

From Turntable Lab:
Funk weapon alert! Rockmaster Rus B adds some dusty, funky breaks (complete with a slick bassline) to the eternal party classic "Ice Ice Baby(1)," and the result is a sure shot floor crusher. On the flip is Zane Tee(2)'s take on the same song - love the Wild Cherry style/snippets on this one. Limited to 350 copies.

Lowman - Pharrell and hutch Free Download

Pharrell and hutch by Lowmannz

Today is winning, I needed chips for my lunch and the deli counter had these hype zesty ranch jump-offs from Kettle. I have to say they don't have enough zest, but the ranch taste is solid. They remind me of the loaded baked potato chips that Kettle sells as well. Regardless, once I got my lunch on I noticed Lowman posted a new tune for download. Nothing groundbreaking, but mos def something you would like to have in the crate.

Okay, let's get to the weekend already....

Breakbeat Junkie vs DJ P "Time to Roll" Repress

We had speed issues with our first pressing of the "Time to Roll" EP for Baffin Island. Something about the cd being at 48k and they burned it at 41k causing all the songs to be slower by about -8. So we had the record re-pressed, and I'm happy to say the test pressing sounded perfect. The new pressing should be out any minute now, so look for it at your local vinyl shop.

Futura 2000 - Escapades (COPYCAT'S Slight Re-edit) Free DL

Copycat sent me this jam a while back, and it's been a great secret weapon to drop on the sweaty masses. He is now giving up the goods for the people, and it is yours free to take. While Futura's style of rap is cringe worthy, you have to remember this was at the birth of hip hop when it all sounded fresh. Regardless, the beat and bass-line are pure bliss, and this re-edit is a crate staple for sure.

Happy 4th of July, I am thankful for living in a country where so much great music has been birthed.

America "Ventura Highway"

*sorry I couldnt find my re-edit, I think its on my studio computer but this is the jam.

This Salsoul Jam has some great drums, and is a direct result of Latin immigrants taking disco and adding their own flavor to it. Its what makes this country great.

All Good Funk Alliance "Duke"

Back in 2002 we put this out:

"Back catalog business from Bear Funk. All Good Funk Alliance dropped this sweet trio of disco cuts back in 2002 and they still hold up after almost a decade. "Mr. Parker" features chilled out disco breaks, "Spinner" gets down on the moody tip, and "Duke" keeps it cool with jazzy keys leading the way." TTLAB

We been at this for a minute, don't ever doubt that we got the funk.

Kool G Rap Remixes Free DL

I came to find out about Kool G Rap via the Brand New Heavies album, Heavy Rhyme Experience where they recorded a bunch of songs with various rappers back in the 90's. I found his flow and Master Ace's flow to be really interesting and unique. I then ended up buying a couple of 12inches of his, but for whatever reason never really got into any of his albums. Anyway, I decided I would see if anyone on Soundcloud had done any remixes of his songs and low and behold I found some really good ones which are below for your downloading pleasure.

Rock Master Rus B EP Drops May 19

1. Rock Master Rus B "Dirty Lowdown" Dirty Situation EP by Gazeebo International

I did a 3 song EP for Gazeebo records in exchange for a wonderful remix that Gazeebo did for Funk Weapons a while back. I could have just churned out 3 simple edits and sent them and been done, but I wanted to take the craft a bit further. So all three of the edits contain extra drums, keys and production. Furthermore, Frank helped me mix-down and he added some final touches to make them gel well. I'm really quite happy with the way they came out, and I'm proud to be on Gazeebo which is a fine label.

Making these also helped me break through my writers block, and begin working on some new AGFA tunes and some remixes for Funk Weapons. Hopefully I can find time to get back in the studio and finish them soon, but it's hard with a 17 month old and a 5 week old plying for my attention whenever I am at home. Anyway, I hope you dig them. I should be busting out some more free downloadable edits soon as I have 2 ideas running in my head I would like to finally finish up.

Check them out and pre-order now from Juno Records.

Huh Huh huhhh Kurtis Blow

Kurtis Blow, what can I say that haven't been said about dude. He was one of the Original M.C.'s out of New York to really break out big and become a huge star when hip hop was just breaking. He is way over-sampled, to the point that I never want to hear a "These are the breaks" sample again, ever. He broke big way back in 1979 with Christmas Rappin'. Copycat did a little re-edit of Rappin' Blow, which I posted a link too below, as Im sure the soundcloud will die any minute now. I also included "Party Time", which for me is the best Kurtis Blow song ever. As it featured home-town heroes Trouble Funk on the beat.
