It’s been way too long since we’ve posted anything the ALL GOOD FUNK ALLIANCE. To remedy that we have this chilled-out collaboration that combines AGFA’s funky breaks with COPYCAT‘s dancefloor vibes. The project came to light when AGFA toured Australia in January and made a visit to Copycat’s studio in Melbourne. It’s a perfect combo inspired from Grand Puba’s golden era hip-hop classic.

We have brand new bootleg from KRAFTY KUTS. If you haven’t heard, Mr. Kuts, aka Martin Reeves, broke his legs on the slopes at the Snowbombing Festival two weeks ago. Apparently not much can keep this man down – he’s also making his way across Canada for his Canadian tour where the tune has been smashing dance floors. Sadly, he’s not making a stop in Winnipeg this time around.

GROUND LEVEL are on a roll in 2013. They’ve had a busy schedule this year with the some chart-topping numbers. Their latest is from JOE C, which marks his fourth release on the UK-based label. The four-track EP explores the crusty side of breaks – it’s dirty and heavy – with enough swaggering bass to knock your jaw to the floor.
Joe C also has a tasty bootleg for free download. He drops Nom de Strip and Bones’ “Shake & Bake” into a pressure cooker for a crisp and meaty midnight snack.

ALI JAMIESON is a self-proclaimed “producer and synth botherer focused on the more organic, soulful and leftfield styles of house and disco.” His latest release, and debut on Keenhouse’s Sunlinxx Records, falls deeply into his mantra with three slowburn sunlit jams.

Austin trio, LANCE HERBSTRONG, have maintained an element of funk in their tunes and at times accented it with a bit of ghetto. They’re not ones to follow patterns either, releasing material as diverse as weedsmoke – they graft the guts from a spectrum of influences into something unexpected.
Lance Herbstrong, are back at it again, fusing Xavier Rudd and a glitchy backbone with a history of space travel.

Another fella in Winnipeg who seems to have his hand in every pie is LAMBO. I’ve lost count of the number of names he’s gone by, his latest though, is a deep lunge into trap. This tune is big, with enough low end to shake a truck off the road.
Ha. This is kinda funny. Lambo and Tec-G (from the previous post) worked on stuff together at one point. Not sure if they’re still collaborating – it’s hard to keep up with all of this.
