The huge ‘Feel Good / Back In The Day’ Remixes pack comes with mixes from Krafty Kuts, ThatManMonkz, Smoove & George Solar! It’s already taken out #1 on both the Juno Download funk & hip hop charts, got a glowing write up from 1 of our favorite blogs Monkey Boxing & been played by the who who’s of funky DJs across the globe!
Two of the funkiest humans on the planet, famed Ibiza resident Mr. Doris and Brit down under, D-Funk, have teamed up to provide a brace of funked up beauties just in time for the summer session at Jalapeno Records.
Both producers are no strangers to what makes a dancefloor rock with D-Funk holding down residencies at the best spots in Sydney while Mr Doris has been long time resident at the world’s greatest nightclub Space, and now Pacha, programming venues with the cream of the world’s funk infused DJ’s to play on the white isle.
‘Feel Good’ features Cantaloop and Nell Shakespeare rocking the mic over a sample driven slo-mo groove while ‘Back in the Day’ features the man they call MysDiggi, getting his reminisce on over a sample from a very well known kids TV show.
We had an amazing video made for ‘Back In the Day’ by Neil & Phill Creates at Aardman Animation. Yes the same Aardman that made the movies Wallace & Gromet and Chicken Run! They did a stellar job. MysDiggi got made up, dressed up & whacked with a mallet all in the name of art but the video turned out amazingly well & we’re super happy for you to enjoy it…
“Originally released a couple of years back, Mr Doris & D-Funk’s ‘All Down’ returns with a bunch of new remixes that build on the original’s vibes featuring the outstanding vocals of N’fa Jones and Cataloop. First up is a remix from Ninja Tune and BBE legendary producer, DJ Vadim. Having worked with or remixed the likes of DJ Krush, The Roots, Dilated Peoples, and Prince, Vadim needs no introduction. His remix places the vocals over heavy beats and percussion with hauntingly infectious reverbed synth lines to create a perfect blend of hip-hop and electronica. The Rebel’s remix strips away some elements, adding punchy snares and funk fills with wah-wah guitars, keys, and horn lines to bring a delightful touch of jazz to proceedings. Also included is the Aldo Vanucci remix, a funked-out groove, and head-nodding hooks means this one is still sounding as fresh as ever.”
I teamed up with the great blog Life Support Machine to have a track included in their LSM advent calendar.
‘Sydney-based, British-born DJ/producer, D-Funk, delivers an excellent nu-skool breaks remake of Everything But The Girl’s 1994 classic Missing on Advent Day 29. Even though the original has been remixed several times in the past, we’re loving what D-Funk has done with his remix and we’re sure you will too. A stripped-back feel is soon given a gritty edge thanks to the deep rumble of a sawtooth bassline, which adds a meaty texture to the otherwise sweet-sounding remake. Play it in your sets and witness the dancefloor getting lost in music.’ LSM Dec ’22.

It’s been a little bit since my last freebie (D-funk – Heard-it-through-the-bassline-free-download) which got a really great reaction! This ones on a more nu disco vibe but still with cool synths/bass lines. When this tune first came out in 2005 I was lucky enough to get the vinyl on promo. I played it so much! I picked up the remix stems a while back & when the new DnB version came out it spurred me on to do my own version that would fit into my sets.
I’m really happy to have been asked to play at the #shareasong launch event being held at the Australian Institute Of Music (AIM) in the Rocks, Sydney.
#shareasong is a campaign set up by Music Health & Vera Music aiming to focus the benefits of music on mental health & dementia. This event is part of ARIA week 2022. They are doing amazing work using music as a tool to fight dementia & are pushing boundaries in the field of music therapy & brain health.
