Happy Valentine’s Day people! This weeks chart is loaded with dope neo world tunes, go-go remixes, funk re-rubs, and lots of bass. I am definitely loading up on all of these. They all rock the floor, and will go right into my crates! Have a great weekend, and enjoy the tunes!
JUNKYARK BAND – SARDINES (BOBBY C SOUND TV REMIX)
I have a soft spot for this song. Being from DC, go-go is one of our native sounds. Junkyard Band used to perform at my High School. Bobby C does a fantastic remix. This is such a burner! I can’t wait to drop it this weekend! Head over to the Scour to get a free download of this beast!
BRASS CONSTRUCTION – CAN YOU SEE THE LIGHT (QDUP RE-RUB)
Qdup premiered this remix in the Fractal Forest at Shambhala Music Festival 2013. Of course, it went down a storm. I have been waiting patiently for Qdup to get his final mix, and pass this one along. It is all good to go now, and it will destroy the floor.
SUGAR RAY JOHNSON & D-FUNK – SAVE ME – GRITS N GRAVY
Super awesome funk remix of Sugar Ray Johnson by Australia’s D-FUNK. I really like what this guy does. His remixes, originals, and edits are always top notch. He is also a fantastic DJ. I am always down with up and coming people who can produce and rock a party!
THE POLICE – S.O.S. (THE SPY FROM CAIRO REMIX)
Zeb aka The Spy from Cairo is hands down one of the most talented producers in the World Music scene. He is an incredible multi instrumentalist. Apparently Zeb made this remix of the classic Police tune just after Hurricane Katrina. It is just now finally seeing the light of day for the rest of us. Check out everything this guy does if you are into good world music.
BILL WITHERS – TIME WITH YOU (JUST THE TWO OF US RE-ENVISIONED BY THE GAFF)
Here is one for all you lovers out there on Valentine’s Day. This is a tune for all the djs that are in love, and on the road a lot missing their partner! The gaff is truly one of the best digger djs out there. If I hear a beat, and need to identify it, I hit the Gaff. He always knows. Definitely peep his all 7 inch vinyl mixes. This guy has skills.
QUANTIC – DUVIDO FEAT. PONGO LOVE
Here is a brand new tune from the infallible Quantic. This is the first single off of his upcoming Magnetica album. Quantic makes some of the best forward thinking World Music. He flawlessly incorporates traditional instrumentation elements alongside modern electronic sounds. His tunes always rock the floor, and are some of my favorite secret weapons.
JESSWAH – THE FUNK WILL BOUNCE (URSULA 1000 REMIX)
Ursula 1000 is an eclectic NYC based producer and dj. He has great skills in both departments. It has been a while since I heard a crazy funk remix from him. This one totally rocks the dance floor, and also is a free download. If you are near DC this weekend, you can catch Ursula 1000 djing at FUNKY PREZ at U Street Music Hall.
TROPKILLAZ - BADMAN
The Tropkillaz are hands down dope! Their incorporation of Bass, Trap, Latin, Reggae, and Twerk sounds are some of the best out there. Tropkillaz consists of DJ Zegon (half of N.A.S.A.) and Andre Laudz. I seriously advise you to check their soundcloud and load up on some bangers! This Badman remix is sick!
DILLON FRANCIS & DJ SNAKE – GET LOW
This jam is bonkers! These two are like a dream team for dj friendly dance floor bangers! This tune has great synth line that gives it a worldly feel, and an absolutely monster beat! Get this and Get low!
SMALLTOWN DJS – SEE THRU FEAT. LISA LOBSINGER – FOOL’S GOLD RECORDS
It is really amazing to see what Mike Grimes & Pete Emes aka Smalltown DJs have accomplished over the last few years. Their tunes, remixes, and edits are in many world class djs crates. This is their latest original tune featuring Lisa Lobsinger of Broken Social Scene. This infectious groove will get stuck in your head.
BONUS VIDEO – SEE-I – REAL STEEL (FORT KNOX FIVE REMIX)
Here is brand new video edit that my partner, Rob Myers, made for our Fort Knox Five Remix of the new See-I single REAL STEEL. Spliff out and enjoy!
