You really have no excuse.

Lorenz Rhode makes no excuses and wrangles the FUNK out of that pitch wheel. This track gets real goooood around 1:45 with the synth guitar and just doesn’t stop. Watch the breakdown at 2:48 for some completely ridiculous keys and yes, that bassline is oh so necessary. WWWOOORRRRK IT.

Unfortunately, I don’t hear any actual Rhodes action in this track.

This second track I had to include because:

1. it’s a pretty big departure from his other stuff
2. it’s awesome
3. best track title of the month, possibly year.

It’s pretty minimal, but in all the right places. Not some fucking avant-minimal techno bullshit that has a barely detectable melody.

ALSO, be sure to cop his Motor Cortex EP which came out last year. It’s a necessary addition to everyone’s library.

ps: I’ve been facebooking, twittering, and tumbling a lot lately. xo <3

Where’s the Party?

Well, last week it was BLOG VOLTRON on the roof of The Standard DTLA. (those links are to pictures) There was much fun to be had, and met some really cool people. I also played a really shitty set consisting of really good music.

Anyway, I’ve been listening to a lot of funk and today’s funk was provided by Nytro.

Alan Wilkis is Pink and Purple

It’s unfortunate that the vast majority of physical CD promos I get are stuff I don’t care to listen to. I usually get much better pickings (and much more shit) from what arrives in my email inbox but then again, I get a gigantic volume of email versus snail mail. Anyway, today is an exception.

Alan Wilkis sent me his new album Pink and Purple and…. WHAT A BLOODY SURPRISE. I’m being completely honest here, I’d never ever heard of Alan Wilkis and now kind wishing I had sooner. This sound is pure and shameless pop with a healthy 150 u/L drip of IV funk. Give me hand claps, crunked vintage synth, sslaaappin’ da baaahhsss maaahhnnn, a HORN and SAX (!!!!!!!!).

I need to mention that I don’t expect much from self-signed promo discs. CDR’s with sharpie labeling is perfectly fine for me. I couldn’t care less about what it looked like. The thing with this Pink and Purple promo is that it’s PRODUCTION quality. packaging, CD art, everything.

People, this guy’s self-signed and he’s putting out promos that look like I just copped something from a major. Take notes.

I’m hearing throwbacks to so many great and different classics on the album. Hall & Oates, Brian Eno, Bowie, of course Michael Jackson (RIP). Shit’s on lock.

Make sure you drop by his space and listen to every track in the player. Definitely recommend the album titled track, ‘Pink and Purple’.

Buy his self-signed release HERE or on iTunes

Someone cut this guy a deal or the MANIA™ label will have to be established sooner than I was planning. (if anyone’s interested email me for details)

PS: I’m hosting a nightly, bi-nightly, weekly, wheneverly internet dance party from now until whenever I choose to stop. Check twitter around 11pm PST I’ll be streaming the funnest shit live + MJ classics. Send me your own/favorite MJ remixes they will get airtime most definitely.

Keep up with me on twitter to find out exactly when we go live. I need to figure out a way to field requests… thinking  twitter @’s will be the easiest? suggestions?

DFA = Disco’s Fucking Awesome

Laid back disco is what I’ve been feeling lately. One larger label who probably reps disco the hardest these days is DFA.

I’ve been following a seasonal mixtape series that DFA’s been putting out since ‘05 and they’ve never failed to satisfy.

This one’s Spring 2008, mixed by Justin Miller (for those of you who are wondering, please do not mistake with another j. miller douchebag) and Jacques Renault -the latter of which who brings funk to the EXTREME. (more on him in a sec).

Sit back, lay back: DFA RADIO MIX SPRING 2008 (right click, save as)

Onto Jacques Renault –FUNK OUT OF CONTROL!! I can’t quantitate the level of funk in this track, but it makes me want to do gangster shit. I’d never heard of Jacques before this track, so has anyone got the dirty on this fool? Is this track a fluke? is he legit?

bb update: just got out of a final to find another 20 messages on my bb. The mailing list is going strong!

The most astounding/interesting/perplexing thing happened this morning. Things went as usual. I woke up, brushed my teeth, fried an egg, burned the toast, then sat down for some quality 1 on 1 with apple mail. (yep, no shower, this is what future-scientists do)

Everything was going well and as usual: club promo, invites, mp3s, blah blah, label promoters being dicks, you know –the usual. ANYWAY…. I come to an email from Peter from the Outlaws. It’s got a mixtape, alright, sweet so I start downloading it. While that is going, I go to my next message.

I do a double take. someone pressed…..


and then… I saw it again… then again. The same title, but with more Re:’s attached and from different senders! By this point I could feel the excitement mounting in my happy little fingers. It had suddenly warped to 1982 and everyone reverted to using one of the earliest renditions of social networking known as ‘mailing lists’.

all those colored lines represent every time someone replied to all and re-quoted the whole message. there were at least 70 recipients on that list.

I think I just heard a little rip in the time/space continuum due to this.

The shirts are coming.

So thanks, Outlaws, for taking the incestuous blogosphere back to its roots. Get the mixtape that started this monstrosity here

long live the meme

I love you all.

Oh, I’m gonna throw down a list of tracks right here that came to the inbox the that a stood out. You know I’m not usually a fan of ‘mass track posts’, actually I don’t like that at all. But in the interest of time I’m gonna do it. Final examinations again. You know how that goes. All of these tracks are out of control, you must listen.
