WHOA. Shout out to Miles Bonny for this one. Moovmnt went ahead and put together a pretty solid semi definitive mix of modern funk that is super slamming. Lots of familiar names and a hand full of exclusives that just bring the Summer back again and again.
The soundcloud file is already maxed out, but there is a direct link + tracklist on the page.

Austin Night Life / Upcoming Shows
I am returning to Austin this weekend for a nice little line up of fun parties. The first thing to jump off is this Friday at Copa (on Congress btwn 2nd & 3rd).
This is the 12th edition of Night Fever (@thenightfever) the famed Wax Poetics Magazine headed monthly party that features the best Soul, Funk, Disco DJs + bands from across the country bringing you serious heat. This time around they are bringing the homie Kon (@Kon1200) of Kon & Amir down for a serious Boogie set. Knowing that Boogie is my shit I was asked to open, and since I was gonna be in town I figured lezz go.
I haven’t done a full Boogie/Disco set in some time, so I really looking forward to this!
Here if the Facebook invite for more information. You must learn.

Well with the new year comes a new mix from myself that I did for Frank 151 Radio A LONG TIME AGO (in internet years). The newest episode turns it’s focus to the future of soul + funk music, LA’s Dam-Funk. I am sure most of you have heard him by now, but if you haven’t just imagine Kashif, Zapp, and Prince having a baby.
I have been waiting and waiting to get this mix posted and the timing actually could not have been any better. My portion of the mix consists of newer boogie / beats stuff that I am really feeling. Mike Slott, Onra, Reggie B, Jneiro Jarel and so on.
So with that said, you can head over to Frank and watch a clip of host Jasmine Solano’s interview with Dam and download the mix. Thanks to Synapse for having me on the show and big shout out to brother Dam for bringing the boogie sound further into the light it deserves (just don’t make the record prices skyrocket!).

Late last year, the Stones Throw camp announced Madlib will be releasing something every month for the year 2010. This seemed like an impossible feat, but knowing Madlib, I am sure he can do that for 5 years and not miss a beat.
This CD is the most recent, and it hits close to home. The mix consists of Disco & Boogie almost exclusively with a little bit of 70s modern soul that didn’t really fall into either category. He opens the mix with One Way’s “I Didn’t Mean To Break Your Heart” and that sets the tone of super soulful tune after tune. Nothing weirdo beardo, just great soul music. I have never heard anyone else play that song before, so getting the validation of knowing the time is such a good feeling.

I am sure some of you are familiar with Gazeebo. With their classic re-edits and quality selection, it is hard to beat.
This new mix for Pollo Erotico is full of exclusive re-edits + great vibes all the way around. Midtempo stompers & spacey textures that are all soulful as can be.
