The Funk Hunters ‘Weekly Mixtape Dig’ #21


A big thanks again going out to mymostofme as our special guest digger last week, bringing 3 cool female DJ mixes to the table!

With our Western Canada tour in full swing this month, diggin’ time has been quite tight. We’ve also received more mixes in the last month than any other month to date so bear with us as we try to give them all a listen. This week we are going to step above the usual 3 and hit you with an extra mix as we’ve received some quality mixes as of late!

Off the top a fresh mix from Tim Livingstone! One half of the production/DJ duo “Livingstone and Canosis”, Tim has just released a fast moving promo mix for his weekly night at the legendary “Tommy Africas” in ski town of Whistler, Canada. Shake-UP features tracks from many of the world class DJ’s that have played his night over the past year plus a couple of new exclusive tunes. He stealthily manages to cram in almost 40 tracks in just over an hour and although there isn’t much variation in tempo (the mix hovers around 110 bpm) there’s a healthy dose of breaks and moombahton. As a bonus, almost all the tracks used in the mix are hyper-linked on his Soundcloud page… Way to take the extra step Timmy, we salute you!

Next up a mix that has been on our radar for the last few weeks… The “Time Machine” Promo mix from the Groove Fellaz! Got this mix bumping right now and these guys are bringing the heat. Tons of added acapellas and more bangers than a C-4 convention! The tracklist bumps an impressive number to 73 within an hour with some perfect tempo change ups taking us out of GF jams into some tight dubstep & D&B. This mix is coming highly recommended from us! Nice work Fellaz!

Time to take it back to the classic funk sound with DJ Brett Rock. The “Beat Grinder Vol. 1″ is a very slick selection of old school funk & B-Boy jams! We’ve been playing some of Brett Rock’s edits over the past few years and this guy has serious taste-buds for the funky stuff… All you OG heads out there are sure to dig this one!

To close out this weeks dig, lets light up a spliff and check in with selecta Seez-Kalonji from Greece! His “Stylez Fi Milez” mix is 30 minutes of reggae dubs and rasta flavoured hip hop mashups. This one is nicely chilled for all you smoked out cats around the world!

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 :)
