Our last Funk Weapons record from Mash and Munkee has been flying off the shelves, and now the boys have decided to give away an older tune they did. It's pure nu-funk without using trite samples, which I can respect. Not sure how many DL's they have left on Sound Cloud but I would get it now before its gone.

I really dug Gonzales Ride, but I needed a nice beat to mix it in and out of, so I used one of Sard Boogie's other beats and inserted some little samples to make it interesting.

You can hear the original here the whole song is really cool.

I first heard about U-Tern when he released a mix via Beat Street records called Body Work, where he busted out a bunch of old school boogie, proto-house and disco in a mega-mix style and he only used the best parts of each song. For me at the time it was really inspiring, as I was going out and and only buying those types of records. Anyway, that put U-Tern on my radar and he has only gotten better with time. He's actually really popular now, running his own radio show, dj nights, dropping original tunes and posting on http://onedaylater.blogspot.com/ from time to time. Seriously, I can't say enough about U-Tern, if you haven't I would mos def seek out some of his stuff.
Anyway, back on to my Hip House theme, U-Tern dropped this mix back in 2008, where he mixed hip hop vocals over old and new house records. I thought the whole mix really worked and I especially love the Outkast section. Below is a link to the mix, check it out and holla at me with any cool Hip House you think I should hear.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty gay over Neighbour’s music, he is one of my best friends and probably one of the most prolific producers out there today. He has tackled almost every style with ease, even his dub-step track blew away a lot of the more famous UK stuff I had heard. Well yesterday I was dicking around on the inter-web and I found these two songs via his roommate Trevor Spilt Milk’s Sound Cloud page, apparently Trevor and Neighbour have been mucking about with some classic Hip House vocals and doing their own vintage instrumentals underneath them and I really think they sound good. I can feel the love and care that went into these, and I’m sure you will too. “Stupid Fresh” is my favorite one out of the two just because of that ill bass sound that Neighbour seems to churn out with ease. Check em out and drop these boys some comments and love, they deserve it.

Oh and full disclosure, Trevor did the video for our song SlingShot Boogie which you should check out if you haven’t already.

Duck Sauce which is the brain-child of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, really blew up last year with the song "Anyway". This year they did it again with this Barbara Streisand track, which I have been hearing everywhere. Anyway, my hommies Pimpsoul and P decided to remix the track into some nu-funk and I think they really churned out an interesting take on the song. See the link below as they are now offering it as a free download. Also, if you dig this remix I suggest finding DjP's remix of "Anyway" called "Juicyway", which came out on a stellar 7" from Bureau45 last year.
If you don't know who Pimpsoul or DjP are I highly suggest looking both these cats up, they produce and remix some really funky stuff.

I recently ran across Sard Boogie's tracks on a Juno Download excursion and his song "The Standard" really stood out to me. I love his style and it reminds me a lot of Sleeve and some older instrumental hip hop stuff that I love. He is a rapper and producer but I would say his productions fall under a unique vibe, more deep disco boogie and broken beat than straight up sample hip hop. It sounds like dude also can play some keys, which is a nice change of pace. Anyway, check out dudes music via his bandcamp page here and make sure to check out the 2 albums he has posted up, I think he is asking like $2 or $3 dollars for each whole album. Apparently he has a whole new album dropping sometime in October, I personally can't wait.
