Oliver $ has had a big year for 2011. This track is his latest. It’s a great follow up to “Doin’ Ya Thang”. In a year in which dubstep, progressive house, and electro dominated the charts, Oliver $ seemed to come from nowhere (although he’s been doing his thing for a while) with some tunes with addictive drums and basslines and great vocal samples. Minimal but very effective.
The new F-word is forgive. I have forgiven those who have wronged me in the past and I have moved on to other things. I tend not to dwell on the past as I am trying to live in the present and make a good future for those who come after me. Aside from the soap box, this video is funny and true. Check it out.
Check out this track by Bryan Jones which is available on the Coyote Cuts label. This track is for the lounge types if you are into chilling out. This track is also good for the clubs as well. Whatever your mood, bump this sh*t. For the past decade, he has made hard hittingfunkyjackin’ classics.
When I was growing up, Cajmere/Green Velvet, encompassed every emotion that I was feeling. Cajmere was more catered for the funky dancers at heart while Green Velvet was more darker for the raver types. With a discography that goes back 20 years, he definitely has made his mark in Chicago House music (as well as the House music world) with his two labels Cajual and Relief.
My favorite track at this moment. Midwest producer Mike Gillenwater is well known in underground circles, especially with High Caliber (with Bryan Jones). After a long break, he is back with some funky disco tracks. Click here for a funky ass track with electro/disco house producer Paul Anthony. The video posted is a song from his “Full Tilt EP” release on Bid Muzik, which is available at various digital outlets.
The way I am everyday. I don’t need approval from those to make it valid. I may not be the best lookin’ n**ga out there, but I don’t hide behind a facade to attract friends or significant others. Oh yeah, to my sistas out there, this is the stuff that make you have that “good hair”. Embrace your brown skin. But, let it be known it’s the personality that goes beyond skin and hair that makes you who you are. Keep it real with folks and “fucks” with those who keep it real with you.
Kreap has got to be one of the most interesting guys I have encountered so far (and I haven’t met him personally-may happen soon). He has given me great advice via web chat on the state of the revival of filtered disco. Anyway Kreap’s style is very funky from nu-disco to house. He hails from Australia. Be on the look out for various releases at various digital outlets as he takes on the world with his sounds. Check out his remix of Jackson 5’s “Dancin’ Machine" as well as his uniquely titled "Chimp Fucked on the Elevator to the Food Court (With No Lube Mix)”.
Alexandre Louvre is a young DJ/Producer from Mexico. I am definitely happy to be acquainted with him. His style is filtered disco/nu-disco. He has been making a lot of noise in the underground circles with such tracks as “Coquette" and "Design Me”. Look out for future productions by him. I hope you enjoy his stuff as much as I do.
