Auxiliary tha Masterfader’s new remix of “Hey Baby” by That Girl With Dark Eyes is modern Electrofunk with a throwback feel, harking back to the Sheila E./Prince glory days (although the backing male vocal seems more The Revolution than Prince). The remix collaboration of Dutch producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader and San Francisco producer That Girl With Dark Eyes came to fruition after the pair bonded over a love of analog equipment. This intercontinental love fest proves that funk knows no boundaries. Oh hey baby…

Los Angeles producer (and GDD homeboy) Falcon Punch has teamed up with New York mystery producers PIXELATED on the brand new track “Flying High”. Here’s what Avery Henderson, aka Falcon Punch, had to say about the song:
“This song has been in the works for a long time and finally came together when I teamed up with NYC based producers PIXELATED to finish it up adding guitar, bass and several other elements to tie it all together.”
And how beautifully it all does tie together. The combination of soothing Baelerica & mesmerizing Nina Simone sampled vocals are sure to keep you in a trance for whatever journey you may be on. Whether it’s a top down, cross-country drive, a sail across the sea or a plane ride above the clouds, this song will most certainly keep you “Flying High”.
I’m heaps keen on the mysterious and effortlessly stylish act known simply as YNGCULT. Introspective, soulful, and ever-so-funky… what more could you ask for here? Oh, they play live. And they just remixed this atmospheric, futuristic little beast originally by funk outfit Lettuce. Keep your ears peeled, I expect very cool things, the situation is dripping with potential.

“OH MY GOD THAT’S THE FUNKY SHIT”
It’s not an easy task to take one of the baddest, grittiest, funkiest Beastie Boys tracks of all time & turn it into a balls out/tits out Disco classic. But, with a bassline that the late, great Mr. Adam Yauch would’ve been proud of, that’s exactly what Cyclist has done with the classic Beastie Boys track “Root Down”.
Never let you down with the stereo sound

We saw Summer poking it’s head out and invited it to stay. That means tasty festivals, sun-kissed bike rides along the beach, longer days, better lays, and even, a smashing new fixtape to usher it all in. Strait out of Belgium and just touching down on our Southern california turf, Aeroplane has landed and is here to destroy Coachella in all of its cosmic glory. He says this tape is like a bike ride in space, and we must oblige. After all, thats actually a pretty amazing description of Coachella after all.
My love for The Bloody Beetroots has blossomed yet again. I had the opportunity to catch an unplugged set the last time they were in Hollywood, and seeing this softer side to the musicians was pretty surreal. I mean, usually you have Sir Bob and co. rippin’ and tearin’ around on stage yellin’ god knows what and rockin’ that shit like it’s still the 80′s and metal is still cool as fuck. But beneath it all are some amazingly talented musicians (no surprise here), and this track with Theophilus London really hammers that point home. Jazz, hip-hop, rock drums, back up singers, WHAT IS THIS! I don’t know, but I’m into it. Rock on.
It’s practically fact that you can’t have a bad Monday if you kick it off with a little trip to funky town. Miami’s Panic Bomber has reworked The Godfather of Funk and churned out 10 minutes of thigh burning heat. The tasteful ode to one of music’s all-time greats makes it difficult to listen to this one and not have the urge to start dancing.
