Every now and then, I need some funky sounds that make me bounce and smile. I recorded this mix when I felt this need yesterday. I included Funky House, some Breakbeats and a little bit of Electro Swing.
I am actually listening to this mix right now, and it makes me smile. Mission accomplished, I guess. 😉
I haven’t bought any Hed Kandi compilations in quite a while. I generally like their style, but the tracks on one compilation always sound a little too similar to me. However, I did buy their latest “Disco Heaven 2011” compilation and actually enjoyed it – even though I can’t tell most tracks apart.
I haven’t seen Dan Lewis for a while, but it seems like he is having quite a bit of success recently: We were hosting a radio show together about 6 years ago, and now I find out he just had a release on the legendary House label Strictly Rhythm. Way to go, buddy!
I also have to say that I really underestimated Yolanda Be Cool. I only knew their massive hit “We No Speak Americano”, but when digging a little deeper, I found that they are not just a one-hit wonder – their tracks “Afro Nuts” and the more recent “The Bump” are true House anthems, and that’s why I included them in this mix.
Finally, I would like to give props to the Discotizer whose track “Baby” is also in this mix. I interviewed him for Sweet Headache a while ago, and we have also had a gig together in the meantime. Recently, he concentrated more on producing music and I have to say that this guy really knows what he is doing.
