I put together this mix that features all tunes I’ve had a hand in making or editing, a collection of my favorite nu disco numbers. The mix starts off chilled & slo mo, then heads through funk & soul inspired chuggers into more upbeat dancefloor territory near the end. This one is definitely a journey… I hope you enjoy the ride!
Back in August ’18 I played at Motion Notion Festival in Canada for the 3rd time. I actually played 2 sets, 1 on the Cabana Stage on the Sat & 1 on the main stage as part of Freddy J‘s Funkadelic Funday (where I played a 45’s funk set) on Sun afternoon. Here’s my set from the Cabana stage…

With the release of my Wild Things EP on Grits N Gravy, which features 3 funky Drum & Bass/Jungle tunes, I thought I’d give away one of my other upbeat secret weapons! This version fuses together the Timo Maas breaks/2 step/bass classic remix of Dooms Night with my DnB switch up. It’s a sweet DJ tool & transition from 130bpm to 172bpm. This featured on my Moton Notion 2017 mix – D-Funk – Motion-notion-2017).

The Wild Things EP is my first real foray into the world of funky Drum & Bass / Jungle, even though it’s a sound that I’ve been playing in my DJ sets for years. Everyone loves DnB! I know I sure do. I hope you enjoy listening to this release as much as I enjoying bouncing around the studio putting it together & bouncing on stage playing it out at various festivals across the world!

My first freebie of 2019! I put this funky little version of ‘Get Your Freak On’ to play at some festivals this past year. It handy sits between mid tempo & more upbeat club styles & was using it as a transition between styles. Every time I played it there was a great response so it really was a no brainer for this to be my next free download. It’s all about punchy beats & juicy 808 bass. Play it loud & enjoy it…
I’m so unbelievably stoked to be part of the huge Funk The World mix series put together by Fort Knox Five & Fort Knox Recordings, which showcases some of the finest funk based music from a across the planet. I put together a mix that features some of my all time funk favourites, some of my favourites from Grits N Gravy & a selection of my finest funky tracks.
In the first week of the mix being up on Mixcloud it cracked #1 on the Glitch Hop chart, #2 on the Breaks chart & #8 on the Funk chart!

A little while back I put out Blissed Out Beats the first in a series of more chilled mixes. Since then I’ve been playing & collecting loads more of this laid back style & thought it was about time for the second in the series. This one’s a little more jazz & soul inspired. It was also mixed live at a bar here in Sydney, Australia. So slip it on & let the warm sounds wash over your airwaves…

I was playing the original house version of this amazing track ‘Brazil’ by Pirate Jams, which was released on Australian based label Klub Kids last year. I was thinking it would be great if there was a breaks version so I hit up Kid Kenobi (who runs Klub Kids) & asked if I could put one together & here it is! I virtually re-made the whole track, added extra synth/bass but tried to keep the old stool vibe of the original. Hope ya dig…

I’m super stoked to be heading back to Hobart in Tasmania to play at Secret Sounds Of The Underground 7th party alongside house music legend Anthony Pappa! I’ll be headlining The Beat Down room alongside local talent DJ Thensum, Dazema & MC Wombat, DJ Pressed & Rola. The big man Anthony Pappa will be holding down the Secret Sounds Of The Underground room & Organic Mechanics will be hosting the Psy Room.
It’s a secret party with the venue being announced on the day which makes it even more exciting!
It’s been a few years since I last played in Hobart so I’m really looking forward to heading down to the very southern part of Australia again.

Here’s another low slung house number/Nu disco number that I put together & release as Doug Masters, the alias I use for my more house orientated stuff. This one’s a deep & groovy tune that takes on an old disco jam that was also sampled by a couple of french artists a few years ago (those that know, will know). I made it a little more stripped back & synth driven but kept the same vocal elements that made the tune such a anthem in the 2000’s. It’s a free download so help yourself & enjoy…
