The Funk Hunters flip Bass Head into a nice little jam, I like the way the use some of Think Tank's vocals from "Drunk on the Funk" along with a bunch of other stuff. Mos def will be dropping this at Bananarchy. Its a cool transition tool as well going from 130 down to 85bpm.

I will be away from the computer for a few days, so this will be my last post before next week. Hope you enjoyed this weeks finds, as this has been a stellar week of music finds for me. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans, and to our international crew word up and thanks so much for supporting Funk Weapons, Baffin Island and Super Hi-Fi.
We have some nice records planned for Winter/Spring 10/11, with an EP in the works from Clayton and Fulcrum. We also have a full EP wrapped up and ready to roll from Kool Hertz that we will be working hard on pushing after the Holiday weekend. Frank has been hard at work in the Studio working on the next AGFA album, I have helped on some tunes and finished up a Crazy Penis type track for the album. We are still working on it and building up the live show, so hopefully next year we can drop that on you.
Okay, take care and I'll leave you with this wonderful number from Sorcerer called Hustlers Play.

Check out this cool edit of Trouble Funk from Sloppy Seconds and this nice short edit of Sardines. Being from the DC area means I got that Go-Go rhythm in my bones, and it was a sweet surprise to find some nice edits up here in Soundcloud. Now it's my turn to get busy on some Go-Go edits for my upcoming edits EP.

Sometimes you dig through soundcloud and you find nothing, other times you just keep hitting on great stuff. I usually just send myself the links that I think are interesting and give them a listen later when I am home and can really scrutinize them. Well tonight I found two fine remixes courtesy of the artists themselves via soundcloud. Here are the goods, first up we have a cool remix from Mr Fudge, of do the right thing, check out his crews soundcloud page as they have a couple of other interesting downloads you might want to scoop up. Lastly we have an electro remix from Mr. Bird, of Marc Hype and Jim Dunloop's version of Al Naafiysh (The Soul).

I have always loved the song from RAMP called "Daylight", and have been playing the Sleeve song "My Life" which samples said song to a great effect. I found this re-edit today and it really fit my mood for the day, mellow. Anyway, go and grab it and put this on next time your chilling out with a cocktail and some friends.

P.S. Thanks to all those that came out to check me out in San Fran at the Q-bert show, it was really cool to drop some tunes after the master of scratch to a really fun and inviting crowd. RESPECT to Robbie MoPo, Whalefish, Ben, Chardmo and everyone else I chilled with this weekend.

I have no idea what this song is actually called, but for some reason I called it Wet Panties. I used this song as the first song on the AGFA podcast 2 mix. I love the way she blends breaks with her edits, they are a bit lo-fi but the funk still shines thru. I suggest digging deeper into Lucek's music if you can find any. I was lucky enough to have one of my bro's hand me off a cd of her tunes a while back.

Basement Freaks have a new EP out on Jalapeno Records, called Something Freaky. It's a great song and I had been dropping it in my sets, but I was really impressed with this new Max Sedgley remix. The boys at Jalapeno have given me permission to drop the radio edit for you guys, but I would seek out the extended mix and remixes if you like funky breakbeat with a bit of that freaky Prince flavor.

Only vinyl for right now, digital will be released in the following weeks.
Thanks to Badboe for his faith in us finally putting out this release, we originally had "Halo" and we had issues with pressing vinyl and we ended up replacing it with "Lady Day Funk". I really like the way this EP came out, its funky disco goodness.
