Time for some Friday Bass to start up as the weekend is upon us, forget about that thing called work and ride it out to some good music. I've been meaning to get around to this and Friday Bass 1 is here. I'll be selecting tracks off Soundcloud during the week and adding them to the Friday Bass collections, also will be accepting submissions but they have to be in Soundcloud. Hope you enjoy the mix and share!
Barcelona's funky duo The Pinker Tones have a hell of a mashup going on here. Daft Punk vs. Electric Six vs. Bootsy Collins... DANGER DANGER! Gotta love great combinations like this, thank God The Pinker Tones are releasing little gems like this every Friday.
Persian TV show/English web show ZirZameen did a great piece on one of our brothers and two more highly talented artists, Brooklyn Shanti, Geko Jones (Que Bajo?!) and Jahdan Blakkamoore shared space as well as upcoming projects. Great to see more international love for our peeps, these are some guys you definitely want to keep up with! A Giant peace to ZirZameen for giving time and place for good music.
Disco is still loved and alive in 2012 deeply by many of us, you just have to find the right group of people who play it! Thankfully the good folks at Liquid Beat Records know that and keeps it soulfully bumping and thumpin, they have released The Love Lounge: Last Night Changed It All EP using the iconic track by Esther Williams that we all know and groove to remade into different sounds by different artists. The EP is a classy one that will have you shuffling as if in Studio 54 in its heyday with the multitude of lights and people swaying in the night. Whatever you want to call this Nu-Disco, Soul Disco, Boom Bapsco, it's just too good to pass up and you my brothers and sisters need to get up on this cause.... Last Night.
One of my favorite NJ beatsmiths Deal The Villain teamed up with Tom Chase of St. Joe Louis for a album that packs a sonic wallop and unavoidable Jersey griminess that we all love in Hip-Hop. All produced by DTV and one by The Jake it sounds like perfect music to cause havoc with and go bombing. I hear a 100 Yard Dash Mixtape track in there (a favorite) and Kung-Fu Treachery is a familiar tune as well, after that it's all new and golden! Always a treat when Deal releases some music and Chase comes along this time to add the cherry on top, check the album below and DL then bump till the frames fall down and the broom sticks hit the ceiling.
