Funk From The Future

To ease the waiting time until Future Funk Squad’s “Darker Nights” remix album arrives (soon!) I give you another mashup I created while trying to throw together another DJ set. One day… *sigh*

I also created a playlist of stuff I am probably never gonna finish due to the lack of useable source material. I blame Lulu Rouge for not releasing those instrumentals.

Dirty Beats .08 goes live

Better late than never – after taking a long break, occassionally interrupted by a mashup or two, there has been a new episode in the not yet overly famous Dirty Beats series of mostly rhythmic noises.

Seth Orin “Sound Ignition” (hironimous bosch remix)
Hironimus Bosch “Dubstep Made Me Blind”
Beta & Hironimus Bosch “Reality Grinds”
Xen Ochren & Ben Moore “Tensions” (beat rangers remix)
Quadrat Beat “Chasing Stars” (kid panel remix)
Mord Fustang vs. Thomas Bangalter “Lick The Scratch” (elite force revamp)
Quadrat Beat “Lights”
Beta “Feel”
Alfoa “Origami” (mdk remix)
Beta “Headspace”
Deenk “Back Again” (beat rangers remix)
Destroyers “Is Any Men”
Deenk “Pump”

I know having three consecutive tracks by the same artist is the direct path to DJ hell, but I had to rearrange things and they worked so nicely together.

Latest Dirty Beats DJ set on Soundcloud

Kicking of the new year, my latest Dirty Beats set was played on January 4th on Kick 106 as usual. Not too much of an audience in the chatroom – guess some people still had to recover from their New Year’s celebration.

Alexis Tyrel “Rebecca Loos” (gui boratto remix)
Hardfloor “Two Guys Three Boxes”
Phonat “Ghetto Burnin'” (bahar canca remix)
Aeron Aether “Twilight” (not okay remix)
The Crystal Method “Come Back Clean” (kaskade extended remix)
Aeron Aether “Synthanella”
Quivver “In Your Boat”
King Unique “2000000 Suns”
Bomb The Bass “Start” (fm radio gods remix)
Hybrid vs. Way Out West “Perfect Dark Future”
Moby “Wait For Me” (jean elan remix)
Long Range “Tools”
Gai Barone & Ad Brown “Arpeggiator” (main mix)
The Young Punx “SugarCandySuperNova” (redroche remix)

I might turn the Hybrid vs. Way Out West track into a proper mashup at some point.

Not so quiet on the Way Out Western Front

Gave the latest Hybrid single a good spin, and look where it landed – combined with Way Out West’s “Only Love” this makes for the perfect tune of a summer yet to come. Received some great feeback already.

In other news, I did another episode of Dirty Beats Done Dirt Cheap. It’s an 80 minute trip of tech funk and breaks and the first episode that really deserves the Dirty Beats tag in my opinion. This one was an exclusive set for Kick 106 – expect more of these in the future.

Last but not least, I broke the 1,000 downloads barrier on SoundCloud. Thanks to everybody who helped raising that number!

Two tracks is twice the fun

The friendly digital people at Soundcloud are now hosting two more tracks I did recently for you all to check out.

Rektchordz vs. Hybrid – Left Your Fear Behind by c-Row / forensiq

Got some great feedback to it so far and received more plays in only a week than most other mashups I did in total. Thank you all!

Secondly, I finally did another DJ set, incorporating some of my current favourite tracks, opening with an almost-was mashup.
