On Saturday, we got our Dirtybird Summer Funk Playlist series started with Weiss. Today we continue the summer loving with EP compatriot Bump Ugly, who might have you doing a little of that with his new playlist. It is more house-centric than Weiss, but it takes you back through some greats from the past couple decades from the likes of Cajmere, Claude VonStroke and Liem.
Pick up the Dirtybird Summer Funk EP here and keep scrolling for the full playlist.
95 North - The Missing Instrumental
The classic chord stabs and energetic bass line instantly drew me to this one when I first heard it several years ago, and instantly cemented it in my memory. A timeless summer house beat!
Soul Providers - Rise (Bini + Martini Main Vocal Mix)
This early 2000s banger defines the sound of it's time. The funk guitar and other live instruments complement the amazing vocal and punchy drums perfectly.
Cajmere feat. Dajae - Satisfy
The synth lines and Dajae's vocal in this track are truly unforgettable, and come together to create a true summer masterpiece. This track was stuck in my head for months when I first heard it.
Tapesh & Kevin Over - NY Drive
The sampling in this is a work of genius. And that, paired with the funky bass line underneath instantly secured this as one of my favourite summer time tracks.
Liem - If Only (Lehult)
Not much needs to be said about this track. The exquisite Rhodes chords and vocal make this an instant classic, guaranteed to get you feeling good.
Claude VonStroke - CaliFuture feat. Barry Drift
The trippy sounds of the boss man himself. Claude Von Stroke killed it with this acidic weapon.
Supernova - In My Mouth
Supernova have been around making Tech House hits for a number of years now. This Balearic beat's bouncy bass and weird vocals are bound to get you in the mood for some sunshine!
Jey Kurmis - Sirkus
Jey Kurmis has always been one of my favorite artists since he came on the scene. He's one of those producers who has a very specific sound. You hear one of his tracks and you really know it's a Kurmis banger. This one is no different, the wobbly bass and trippy vocal and synth chops instantly put me in a good mood every time.
