Another guest mix this time for Toy Beats & the Disco Data Podcast. I was really excited to put this mix together as it’s focused more on the disco & house side of things which isn’t really what I’m known for but it’s what I’m finding myself playing more & more these days, albeit it in my signature funk style. I went deep into the collection & came up with 90 mins of rare disco nuggets, wicked afro beats & funky assed house grooves. I’m super happy with this mix & I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Toy Beats has been making some great tunes/edits recently including his ace re-work of Nate Dogg’s ‘I Got Love’!

The juggernaut of an edit series that is That’s Not An Edit roll onto their 12 instalment! If you’re not familiar with TNAE it’s a series put together by an all Australian cast of producers & editors with a huge back catalogue of releases.
For my offering on Vol 12 I took my edit & re-splice knife to a classic hip hop number & fused it with the original track it sampled. It’s a cool concept that I think turned out pretty good! But hear for yourself…

I was stoked to be asked to compile a guest mix for the amazing DJ XS’s Funky Vibes UK mix series that’s regarded as one for the best funk based mix series/podcasts around. In tech past they’ve had a stellar cast of guests including All Good Funk Alliance, Aroop Roy, X-Ray Ted, DJ Inko, C-Man, DJ Snatch, The Niceguys, Toy Beats & many more! The main man DJ XS has so many good edits, tunes & mixes it’s a series well worth getting you ears around…

I put together a mix filled with band new & unreleased originals & edits by me as well as loads of my classics & great tunes & re-works by artists such as Ed Wizard & Double Dee Disco, DJ Laurel, Yung Bae, Alexander Norman & MC Dynamite, Beats Vandals, Pecoe & Rock Master Russ B. FVUK called it “70 minutes of laid back old school funky hip hop vibes as Australian based producer D-Funk joins us to offer up some classic rap joints re-tweaked for that new school vibing.” The full track listing is up on the YouTube page…

The guys over at That’s Not An Edit just dropped Vol 11 of their all Australia edit series, that features my version of The Clash’s ‘Magnificent Seven/Magnificent Dance’ cut, spliced & editing into a fine nu disco number!
I’ve been playing this a bunch over the past couple of months & it’s a classic throwback that seems to work really well!
Vol 11 features 25 free tunes! Check them all out…
Here’s the latest instalment in my chill out mix series, Blissed Out Beats.. The last 2 have been super popular & it’s a style I really enjoy playing, so there’s gonna be much more chilled beats in future! This ones kind of inspired by playing a sunset at the legendary Cafe Del Mar, Ibiza in September & features a load of the tunes I played there… ENJOY!.

It’s been a while since I dropped my last freebie, so I thought it was high time for some more free music! This is a rework I’ve been playing loads. Works great for both hip hop or nu disco dance floors. I made a whole new & pretty sweet bassline/synth. Added a few cheeky little vocal chops & generally switched things up! ENJOY!.
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!
