From the minute this track hit my ears I have been hooked, listening to it on repeat is not only impulsive but has become a routine of mine.

Pretty Things- Defunk

Defunk has done it once again, getting us up off our booty’s and onto our stompers to get down and dirty to the dreamy drops and din he delivers with this new deadly track, Pretty Things. He starts off with a bangin’ blues vibe that is smooth and sexy yet grimy and groovy, and then smacks you right in the face with a first class future funk heavy bass line that hits you in all the right places and leaves you no choice other than to throw down harder than you thought imaginable.

In true Defunk style, this track is pushing the boundaries of bass music and how we view it. Keeping the heavy bass line while infusing elements like blues, funk and groove brings a new sound and shows Defunk is continuing to make unique, fresh and flavourful music. I can’t wait to see what else he releases throughout the year, but for now I’ll be throwin’ down with friends to this wicked new track!

Peace and Love,

Monty – Grinny Grandad

Oooo this song has me grinnin’ from ear to ear with it’s clever overlaying of samples and super groovy psychadelic rollwithitness. That opening lyric and the guitar solo later in the song is from none other than Fleetwood Mac’s 1969 release titled “Oh Well.” You might be thinking, “Wait, that sounds nothing like Fleetwood Mac?!” Precisely correct, my fellow audiophiles; before Stevie Nicks , Lindsey Buckingham, and the McVie’s were ever part of the band this young Londoner named Peter Green formed the group and it was the blues to the core. Ever heard that little jingle from Santana called Black Magic Woman? Green wrote and recorded that first! (listen here) We’re talkin’ late 60’s my dudes, when some of your parents were still running around in diapers! Fast forward to 4 years ago when Chris Morton AKA Grinny Grandad utilized that hook in a super stylish and funkafied fashion. Chris is also an English chap and he is/was involved with Freshly Squeezed UK and Finger Lickin’ Management for some time but hasn’t put out anything new in recent months. Either way, get lost in this track but be warned that one listen will not suffice.

PS – I have yet to figure out who the female vocal is immediately following “Oh Well” but she reminds me of a young Dolly Parton without that characteristic twang. Her lyrics are cool to boot.

That Old Record ft. Heeni – Dj Ismail

Good morning fellow melomaniacs! Are you ready to get sucked in by the dreamy, delicious voice of Heeni, and taken to the land of beautiful brass and sexy sax?

I’m assuming you all said yes, so welcome to the track, That Old Record.  The song was originally an instrumental piece done by DJ Ismail, but when Heeni heard it she decided to add some lyrics and the perfect match was made!

Heeni aka Flip Giles has been singing since she was a child, growing up in London and following her dreams of being an opera singer, she was accepted to the Royal Academy of Music London when she was 19. She was then placed on the reserve list at Guildhall School of Music. Later Heeni moved to Bristol and started writing her own songs, collecting inspiration from her surroundings, past adventures, romances, family tragedy, and imagination. Since then she has played with a few bands ranging in genres from Ska, Reggae, Funk, Alternative, Indie and Jazz, singing and writing for each one of them. Most recently Heeni has decided to move back to London and has focused all her energy into new electronic collaborative Jazz Hip Hop and D&B projects.

This track gives that old school, sexy vibe that makes your body sway, fingers snap and sassy attitude come alive. It’s a song that can be played on repeat a couple of times and no one complains. So what are you waiting for… Hit play!!!

Mini Mix- Jenny Louca

Jenny Louca…Who are you? Where are you from? Why have I never heard your music before? And how do you only have 20 followers!?

Within the first few seconds of listening to this mix I was hooked. That electronic bluesy harmonica sound is just so sexy and infectious it had me feeling tingly and wanting more. From the classic tracks by Stevie Wonder and Red Hot Chilli Peppers to beats you may not have heard before, these tunes will keep you on your toes, whether your listening for whats next or on the floor dancing. The combination of funk and swing in my ears is like eating my favourite home cooked meal made by my mom. after travelling for months and that is the perfect description for this 14 minutes and 12 seconds you are about to listen to. Get your speakers turned up loud, booty ready to shake and have a time!

Much Love!
