NEW RELEASE & DJ MIX!!!

D-Funk… ‘Step To My Beat EP’ re-launches Upstart Music!!!

So for the past 2 years or so we’ve been pretty quiet on the release front of my break beat led label Upstart Musicbut we are back with a brand new EP, DJ Mix & release schedule!

First up is a 3 track EP from me. 3 original tunes in a up-beat fashion that take influence from breaks, 2 step, bass, garage, booty & nu skool breaks. The EP has had big support from Dub Pistols, The Crystal Method, Reid Speed, DJ Ez, Lady Waks, Jay Cunning, Philly Blunt, Dreadzone, Ben & Lex, Matt The Alien, Freefall Collective, Wackutt, Pyramid, Se7en Deadly Breaks, Trigon, Beatslappaz, Brewster.B, William Breaksphere, Andy McAllister, The Flashback Project , OTT Karp, Justin Sterling, J*Me Griffiths & loads more!

I’ve had a blast making & playing this EP over the past few months. It’s a little bit similar to the kind of material I started off releasing a few years back on labels such as Westway Records, Dusted Breaks, Yellowfinger & of course Upstart. Main difference is (hopefully) my production skills have come on since then! But I’ll let you be the judge of that…

I also knocked together a new, club focused DJ Mix that showcases all the track from the EP as well as a bunch of other awesome tunes. It’s a free download too so you can burn it to CD, record it to cassette, give it to your friends or play it in the park!

Miss Mants & DRKWTR – ‘Get Ready’ (D-Funk Mix) [Breakz R Boss Records]

I recently did this remix for the great breaks label outa Canada, Breakz R Boss Records. The original is a pretty heavy breaks number so I tried to inject a little funk into it but still wanted it to be on a breaks tip. Came out pretty good I think!

NEW RELEASE…
D-Funk & Mr Doris 7″ vinyl out on 2Dogs!

0

Release #3 from the 2Dogs stable brings you another 7″ this time via beat aficionados’ Mr Doris (We Love, Ibiza eclectic resident DJ) & D-Funk (Grits N Gravy & Upstart Music).

Kicking things off is ‘Lock Shit Down’, a gem of a mash up which takes the vox from Chali 2na ft. Talib Kweli and lays down over the all time classic, ‘Supernatural Thing’ by soulpremo, Ben E King.

On the flip is ‘9th Wonder, a good old fashioned party Hip Hopper of a tune which skilfully (and lovingly) underpins things with the wondrous ‘Impeach The President’ by The Honeydrippers then adds vocals stripped from ‘9th Wonder’ by the Digable Planets resulting in a turnout of pure Funk goodness.

Support from:
Robert Luis, TruThoughts, UK – Thanks for this…like Lock shit Down.
Simon Harrison, Basic Soul Radio, UK – Works a treat and thanks for sending through!!
Sam Redmore, Birmingham, UK – Cheers guys, top tunes, both of them. Will be a feature of my DJ sets over the next few months for sure.
Barry King, Colourful Radio, UK – good stuff…
Mark Milz, Furthern In Fusion Radio, Germany – yay … really diggin’ the “9th wonder” mash !!!
Monkey Boxing review – bit.ly/TD003_MB
Abe Borgman, puraSonica Radio, South America – yeaahh….loved the LOCK SHIT DOWN track…will play it for sure at puraSonica!
Support from Paris DJs – bit.ly/1eQjuux

NEW RELEASE…
D-Funk & Sugar Ray Johnson – ‘Kick This Thing EP’ out now on Grits N Gravy!

D-Funk & Sugar Ray Johnson – ‘Kick This Thing EP’ Grits N Gravy. [GNG013].

I’ve teamed up with long term Pacha, Ibiza resident Nicc Johnson (under his Sugar Ray guise) to deliver a 4 track EP that’s a little disco inspired gem! Together we’ve crafted 3 tracks, 2 mid tempo, Nu disco type cuts & 1 more up beat housey number. We’ve also drafted in Sydney’s The Owl on remix duties for 1 of the tracks. There’s been great feedback on the EP & support from the likes of Kraak N Smaak, Pimpsoul, Bassment Freaks, The Funk Hunters, Kid Stretch, Q Dup Foundation, Fuzzbox Inc & more…

It’s a little different from my usual break beat led releases but I’m hoping people dig it all the same!

D-Funk vs Tori Amos – ‘Been A Long Widow’

D-Funk presents… ‘Tracks from the smelly cellar’.

So this is the first in my series of ‘Tracks from the smelly cellar’ where I’ll be giving away a load of edits/bootlegs/mash up/tracks I’d put together for my DJ sets & haven’t seen the light of day yet.

This is a edit I put together of Tori Amos’s ‘Professional Window’. I actually edited a great nu disco bootleg that was made Social Disco Club & added extra beats, vocals, edits & bass. I wouldn’t normally give away an edit of an edit but i think this one is different enough from both the original & their bootleg to warrant it. It’s also had great reactions when I’ve played it out so thought I’d share the love!

It’s a free download (from the link on the Soundcloud player & then my Facebook fan page) so please grab it & play it loud…

NEW MIX (Free download)
D-Funk presents… Blissed Out Beats

D-Funk presents… Blissed Out Beat.

So I’ve been meaning to do this mix for ages. I was sitting by the pool in Bali & thought to myself, as the sun beat down upon my brow, I should really do a pool type chill mix. So I done did one! It’s not a ‘chill out’ mix like the baleric one’s like Cafe Del Mar & the such. More of my sound track to music I’d listen to in the sun. All the tracks on here are nice & chilled but the mix takes in Soul, Funk, Disco, Hip Hop, Downtempo, Nu Jazz & joins it all together in a 80 min musical, dare I say journey.

It’s a free download (from the Soundcloud player) so please grab it & play it in the sun…

Mr Doris & Donewrong – ‘Seeing Red’ (D-Funk’s Blood Boilng Mix)
Grits N Gravy. [GNG011].

I did this little glitchy remix Mr Doris & Donewrong’s track ‘Seeing Red’ which is out on Grits N Gravy. It’s a little different from my usual sound as it’s a bit more glitchy & groove based but I had loads of fun making it & think it came out pretty well!

I’ve been playing it out & it’s been working really well!

NEW RELEASE… MustBeat Crew feat Missin Red – ‘Pushin’ (D-Funk Mix)

0

This is a my remix of Hungary’s MustBeat Crew track ‘Pushin’ which features the fab vocals of Missin’ Red. The original was a more chilled out funky break beat number but I injected some trademark D-funk bass & a bit of ghetto funk attitude! The rest of the release is made up of 2 great originals from MustBeat Crew & 2 remixes from GnG co-boss Philly Blunt. This release is out now on Grits N Gravy!
