What up Ghetto Funk Nation !
We are back on the dig this week after announcing the ‘Evolutution of Funk’ Mixtape Contest Winners last week. If you didn’t get a chance to have a listen to the wicked winning mixes, check them out HERE!
We’ve been busy this past week but thanks to the constant stream of recommendations and keeping an eye on our talented worldwide community, we’ve found some great mixes from around the globe to share with y’all once again!
Kickin’ things off this week we have funky ass mix that was sent into us from DJ Tom James hailing from Wrexham, UK. This mix is quite bumpin’! 42 minutes in as we type this and this has been nothing short of dance floor destruction for the party that might exist in your kitchen, community hall, city nightclub, or in our case, the headphone party at the local coffee shop! Funky breaks, Ghettobass, and some nice rerubs pack this mix with heat!
Now we travel south to Brazil and check in with DJ Wash. Good friends of The Funk Hunters, “The Wash” & Chicco Aquino make up the funky Brazil connection known as Funk The System! After spending time with these guys in both of our native lands, we’ve come to realize that while these guys hold it down on the decks, they also know how to throw wicked events and are great hosts and house guests! Building a great reputation all over the globe while travelling abroad and welcoming DJ’s to their country alike, these guys have helped put Brazil on the worldwide Party Funk map! Wash has tastefully mixed us close to an hour of pure funky reggae mashup goodness. This hybrid mix is sure to meet the needs of your dubbed out lounge party or get your body sweatin’ on a vibed out dance floor !
To bring this weeks dig to a close we have some really good hiphop… Wait, make that a really good hiphop-mixtape! Lets introduce you to The Phonograff! Reppin’ Vancity Canada, The Phonograph is one of the more talented DJ’s here on the west coast. He currently has a project with a violinist spreading their eclectic sound to festivals and clubs all over Canada. Check out Kytami & The Phonograpff’s Violin Vs Vinyl Project Here! Train of Thought 2.0 will hit you with an hour of dope underground hiphop on a funky laid back tip complete with a lot of sick turntableism… this one comes highly recommended from us!
Do you have a new mix you want to get out to the masses? Send it our way and if we “Dig” it , we will add it to our weekly posts!
* Please note we are looking for mixes that have REPLAY VALUE or promo mixes that feature original productions and include download links! We will avoid posting mixes in the same week with similar track listings and we will be posting mixes of various genres and styles. If its funky, groovy, hippity hoppity, dubstepy, drum&bassy, downtempoey, or just plain rockin the fuck out, then send your suggestions to [email protected]
Till next week, happy hunting ghetto funkers
