WARP9: IN SEARCH OF STAR BASS ALPHA [ADAPTED RECORDS]

warp9 - in search of star bass alpha

WARP9 has had a string of bombs lately. This new one, out on Adapted Records, is a trunk full of funky glitch. Every instrument on the four originals on the five-track EP was laid down by Warp9, cut, chopped, and EQ’d to perfection. FUNKANOMICS make an appearance with an insterstellar remix too. If you like your glitch as funky as it is bassy, this whole release is for you. It’s available on Beatport and Addictech.

a.skillz & beatvandals - beat don't stop

A.SKILLZ and BEATVANDALS get funky with this VIP mix. Contextually, the track is all party. That’s all I got to say about this. Well, that and it’s a free download, and that both A.Skillz and Beatvandals are legendary. Like, can’t believe the turntable talent A.Skillz has and Beatvandals  co-runs Bombstrikes and is one half of Utah Saints. It’s you know, something good.

HOTLINE ZERO: FUNK OFF [FREE DOWNLOAD]

hotline zero

HOTLINE ZERO is a new secret project from two big names in the scene. Their first EP was released on the gloriously humourous, yet delightfully wumphous label, Hot Cakes. Knowing any history behind the London/Brighton label, it would be somewhat obvious but entirely speculative that Deekline was one of the mystery producers, but in all honesty, who the eff cares. At this point we all just want the quality beats, like say, the ones in this funkified peanut butter n jam sammy. Take a big bite of this free download, would ya?

The second EP is on it’s way, so we hear…in the meantime get your shuffle on with some of these.

ALL GOOD FUNK ALLIANCE & COPYCAT: FAKIN’ THE FUNK [FREE DOWNLOAD]

AGFA and Copycat - Fakin' The Funk Artwork copy

The ALL GOOD FUNK ALLIANCE and COPYCAT step back in time with their latest collab. Taking us back to the funky origins of hip-hop with staccato’d breaks, chopped vocals and some minimal use of horns – this is a jam to get down to. The tribute to Main Source, AGFA and Copycat looked up the samples, then tracked down the records, cds and files and recreated “Fakin’ the Funk” from the ground up. In every sense, this track is more funk than ghetto, but it’ll get your feet moving all the same. Grab the exclusive download below.

WARP9: SEEMS LIKE A DREAM

funk fusion warp9

One of the reasons I like ghetto funk is it’s ability to cross genres and enter territory not easily explored. It’s hella fun to play too. WARP9 has successfully captured that spirit since he was knee high to a bass bin. On his latest effort, he wobbles down an alley in the deep American south, tripping over bluesy harmonica samples and scraping out a little glitch as he falls to the pavement. “Seems Like a Dream” arrives via a new label, Funk Fusion, on their debut compilation available on Juno.

I first heard Warp9 over at our friends ghettofunk.co.uk. One of the staples of the blog, SPINFORTH‘s Scour just reached a milestone and to celebrate the 100th post, Warp9 was asked to put together something special. Preview below, then head to the scour page to grab a few handfulls of mid-tempo love.
