One Phat DJ – Funky House Finesse 37 (May 2011)
Let’s get on with another two hours of uplifting, funky house tunes that’s been gracing our ears for the last few weeks.We’ve got a fantastic collection of new music for you this month from some of our good friends around the house scene.
Ex-Bassmonkey Danny “Gadgetman” Bond has sent us his first commercial funky-breakbeat remix of the emerging pop act PDG v Anniemouse “Can’t Stop The Boogie“. We wish him luck on his new solo adventure but know, for sure, he’s destined for big things.
(Speaking of the Bassmonkeys, a little bird tells us they’ve been working with Finesse sweetheart Bonnie Bailey on an amazing new remix due for release soon. We’ve been promised an advance play on this when it’s available so stay tuned for more.)
We’ve also got an exclusive early listen to a remix of Jidax & Chynna Blue “Power Of Love” by David Dunne and Andy Daniels, otherwise known as Triple Dee (be sure to check out their weekly show/podcast for plenty of funky house and cheeky banter).
Regular label Hed Kandi also have several compilations out at the moment, including the regularly played “Back To Disco” and “Live Sydney 2011″. We’ve selected a couple of our favourite tracks from each including Jay C & Oliver Lang’s “It Doesn’t Matter” and Jay Santi’s amazing remix of Candi Staton’s “When You Wake Up Tomorrow“.
Loleatta Holloway’s unfortunate passing last month is still close to our heart and we didn’t really get to dedicate much to her last time round so this month sees a couple more tracks by the disco queen, including Hott 22’s remix of “Stand Up” and the banging Satoshi Tomiieremix of “Dreamin’“. Expect more over from the lady over the coming months though – Loleatta is deeply missed, leaving an absolute legacy behind. Rest in peace.
