A.SKILLZ has let another choice bootleg loose. This time he reworks the classic Lyn Collins track “Think (about it)” famously sampled by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock. To be expected from one of the patriarchs of ghetto funk, A.Skillz adds some whumph to the low end and takes this soul train to destinations the original creators would only recognize if enlightened with a healthy addiction to bass.
You can also catch A.Skillz live in London on October 6 at Cable Nightclub’s “an evening with Krafty Kuts.” He’s playing along side some Manalogue favourites, including Krafty Kuts (of course), Far Too Loud, Deekline & Ed Solo, and Bobby C Sound. The night looks a bit ridiculous considering it’s double-billed with Featurecast’s “Run For Cover” album launch presented by Jalapeno Records & the team behind GhettoFunk.co.uk.
A couple of Manalogue favourites, NAPT and PEO DE PITTE, got together and hammered out a deadly tune. For those old enough to remember, the track samples Bizarre Inc.’s club hit from 1992, “Gonna Be Mine.” All I have to say is, if I knew dance music in the early 90s would sound like it does now, I probably would have creamed myself. I’m creaming myself right now actually.
You’ve heard the tune before, in various mixtapes so finally we have an actual release date. The single is released on April 9 on Vicious Bitch with remixes from Oliver Twizt, Far Too Loud, Valentino Khan, Pablo Calamari, and Redial. Below we have a small taste of the original (rework) in the form of a hilarious video, as well as a couple other snippets.
Italian electro heavyweights, THE BOOMZERS, bring the fire with their latest single, “Rowentah.” The entire package, out on BOXON RECORDS is all chainsaws and squelch with remix support from Electrixx, Bezlebass, Saint Pauli, Deadbots, Blaster & The Killer Rabbits, and Bullwack. The standout track though is the edit from FAR TOO LOUD who grind some rather enticing low end frequencies to cap what’s already a smashing tune.
The support for the free refixes FAR TOO LOUD has been dropping has been amazing, so Oli Cash thought it would be a good time to offer up one more! This one is aimed firmly at the dancefloor; a peak-time, bass-driven refix of THE PRODIGY‘s “Warriors Dance” which is sure to get hands in the air…or cause physical and mental paralysis.
Far Too Loud’s brand new electro-house slammer “Start The Party” is out now on FUNKATECH RECORDS. Accompanying the original is an all-out nu-rave mix from The Boomzers and a slick dubstep remix from label-mates Specimen A.
Available now at beatport with vinyl to follow. Check out all the preview clips on Soundcloud below.
Delivering the third in a series of big re-fixes Oli Cash aka FAR TOO LOUD knocks out another free download for the people reworking UFFIE‘s party rocking classic MCs Can Kiss into a breaky electro banger.
Delivering his take on SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO‘s brilliant “Cruel Intentions” feat. Beth Ditto, Oli Cash aka FAR TOO LOUD is back up in your face, blurring all the boundaries by mashing up breaks, UK funky, electro house & bassline into one seriously fresh bass heavy refix.
What I like best about this bootleg is surprising sonic assult. The track starts with some simple keys and vocals but at about a minute into the tune, Far Too Loud brings the thunder with a dubstep-influenced bassline. Considering who the remix is from, I suppose there’s not much of a surprise after all. This one’s a stomper so grab the tune from the widget below.
