Polaris – Top 5 Technique Tracks of All Time (Various Artists – Technique Summer 2017)

Polaris

Polaris is one of the newest talents to light up the Toronto Bass scene. This talented young artist has found himself a quick rise to stardom, and has also been releasing on Technique Recordings. This time he has a collaboration with Schematic on the Technique Summer 2017, and it’s pure summertime vibes.

Polaris took a few minutes out of his day to give us his Top 5 Technique Tracks of All Time.

Get you copy of the Technique Summer 2017 HERE https://Technique.lnk.to/Summer2017

1. Airhead – Tantrum Desire
The first time I heard this track I knew it was going to be an all time favourite of mine.. there’s an element of funk with the bassline leaving room for that high pitched sound in the main section that’s been stuck in my head since day one.

2. Lay You Down – Schematic & Hungry T feat. Grimm
I heard this tune last year before it’s release from Schematic and I knew it was going to instantly resonate with people. It’s so smooth and true to its nature. Grimms’ vocals provide that perfect upper layer of icing on the cake. Masterpiece.

3. Badman Selector – Brian Brainstorm
This tune takes me way back. It’s a great song because it keeps the old school elements of drum and bass and Jungle and fuses them with the new sounds of today. I’ve always been about merging sounds and different era’s together so big respects to Brian on this one.

4. Catch me here – Drumsound & Bassline Smith ft.Conor Maynard

I was actually surprised by this song. When I first heard it I wasn’t very fond of it, but then I started to notice that it started to make its way into my live sets and eventually everyday listening. it’s a very catchy song and has a very summery vibe to it.

5. Nicaragua – Drumsound & Bassline Smith
Back in 2014, when I was starting to really take DJing and producing seriously, this song would be an opener almost every other time I performed, whether it be on its own, or in a double drop. The energy in this tune is off the wall. Love it and still and always will play it.

Father Funk – Heavy Rotation (OUT NOW!)

Ghetto Funk DJ and producer Father Funk has today released his long-awaited debut album ‘Heavy Rotation’ on his favourite day of the year – 420 day! Not only is it his first full record but it is also the first release on his brand new label ‘Funk Therapy’. The new album is available now in all major digital stores across 270 countries.

After signing with legendary agency and former label Finger Lickin’, Father Funk quickly became one of the biggest names in Breakbeat and Ghetto Funk. Fresh off the back of two Canada tours earlier this year and the 1st anniversary of his own successful Bristol based night ‘Church of Love’, the father has cemented himself as one of the freshest tastemakers in the UK right now.
Taking huge inspiration from the disco and funk sounds of the 70’s and 80’s he has been writing music for over 10 years having released 5 EP’s and numerous singles across Sunday Best, Ghetto Funk, Adapted Records and Scour Records to name a few. His back catalogue includes remixes for the likes of Dub Pistols and Fort Knox Five including many bootleg remixes that have also amassed huge numbers on Soundcloud.
This debut record is the first full release that is completely original and free from his best-known sampling work. It captures the energy of the funk and soul golden years whilst combining it with modern dance music and disco culture, not sticking to one particular genre. With over 3 years in the making the father has been able to collaborate with some of the freshest names in the UK on this project; including London rap duo Too Many T’s, Ghetto Funk legends WBBL and Slynk, Canadian rap group Illvis Freshly and neo-soul singer Hilary Beckett.
Speaking on the new release Will Williamson aka Father Funk said:

I think the album is a bit of a lost art these days, and as someone who still very much enjoys listening to them, I wanted to bring back this mentality of writing songs as a collective artwork, not just as floor fillers or money makers. ‘Heavy Rotation’ is not just for dance floors but for front rooms, backyards and long journeys. I hope you enjoy it is as much as I enjoyed making it.

Kidson Show ft Junki Munki – Ridge Radio

Kidson Show ft Junki Munki - Ridge Radio

 

Junki Munki recently guested on Kidson Show-Ridge Radio, if you don’t know about Junki Munki or have never heard his brilliant shows (with hilarious Frank Bruno impersonations!) on Nu-Rave Radio back in the late 00’s you’re in for a real treat here. Junki Munki was one of the top artists in the Rave Breaks scene, a scene that at its peak was championed by the likes of Slipmatt & Billy Daniel Bunter.

Kidson chats with Junki Munki while listening to some of his productions on various labels and some personal oldskool hardcore faves too, it’s a great show and a nice insight into a scene we would love to see return in a big way!!!
