Freemixed Nuts Vol 5- Scour Records

First of all I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to the legendary Scour Records! They have been so kind to release this killer mimimix in celebration of turning 5 and damn is it ever groovy!

Scour Records is a wicked independent label that showcases and releases the creamiest of the crop all day everyday! The boss, the man , and the legend behind the label is Spinforth, which some of you may know as 1/3 of Hong Kong Ping Pong.

This mix is 20 minutes of pure gold, starring a very sick list of artists including WBBL, Mr. Stabalina,  Hong Kong Ping Pong and many more. Its funky, fresh and finger licking good. It will satisfy the taste the buds and the ears buds, leaving you in the best music coma you could imagine.

Hope your hungry!!

Shambhala 2017 Fractal Forest Set – Defunk

I think I’ve found the next source of renewable energy… Some of my favourite music – Zepplin, Fatboy Slim, Rage Against the Machine, Funk Hunters, Flume, Big Gigantic, Easy E – has all been chucked in a processor; blasted on high mode. Then once all that’s been familiarized and melded, some easy flow drum n’ bass, sexy guitar riffs, cruisin baselines, and heavy drops have been carefully placed in such ways to cause an atomically aligned flow generating an ever producing energy that’ll fill you up until you explode and start dancing in ways you never have before. Defunk specializes in his ability to take those elements of funk and jazz to create a mass surge of music that revolves around one thing – making you move! His ever evolving skill in playing on the classic elements of dance music whilst pushing the limits of heavy bass music is something that in the near future will be powering our vehicles. HKFL is officially in the energy game ladies and gents! Best get capitalizing. He dropped this mix at the Fractal Forest stage for this years Shambhala Music Festival, and it has single handedly given me the regret of not attending this year. You’re going to love this one. Crank the speakers, and try and tell me this doesn’t get repeated on your playlist, again and again.

For me, this goes on the snowboarding track list. I can’t wait to shred down the slopes with this as the fuel. Buckle up kids – Defunk raises the bar with this one! Check the SoundCloud for a complete track breakdown!

Happy dancing melomaniacs,

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!

The Ride EP – Megan Hamilton

Voice of an angel coming at’cha! Megan Hamilton dropped her new EP off Westwood Recoordings earlier this morning, and let me tell you – it’s unreal. Her SoundCloud bio reads – “Causing funky riots and catchy bass tunes.” Bass most certainly fuels all six of these songs, along with Megans vocals, her own produced music, laced together with live instrumentation. The next 21 minutes and 84 seconds are just that – a ride. This beauty is out of Minneapolis, and now signed on with our Canadian dudes ‘Westwood Recordings.’ She’s made a name for herself bringing a European feel to her sound on our side of the world, releasing with Buygore, Mixmash, Ghetto Funk, and Audiophile, to name a few labels. On social media, she labels her identifying genre, “funk butter.” -LOL. Oh, and how ’bout that album artwork? It’s killer 😉

Megan, if you’re reading this, please come play in Edmonton, Alberta. We appreciate your music!

Have a great weekend melomaniacs
