Billy Beats

Mark Ronsons new tune Uptown Funk featuring Bruno Mars is an absolute funked up floor burner but Billy Beats decided to add some chunk to that funk with this rather large remix.

Electro Swing Roundup – October/November 2014

Electro Swing Roundup – October / November 2014

Darkside of the Electro Swing Ball

First off better apologise for last month… starting your own business means that time suddenly becomes very precious and unfortunately last month didn’t make the cut. Still just means that this month is better than ever.

If I was you lot I’d ask for your money back…

Darkside of the Electro Swing Ball

Since I’ve been starting to get on top of my work at Vintage Wedding DJ, I thought it was time to get back into another project and so it has to be time to run another event. We’ve been promising to get the scandalous scamps of electro swing up to Shropshire for a while and so we’re delighted to be welcoming Dutty Moonshine up to join us for our next Electro Swing Ball. We’re going in deeper and darker for this one (definitely would suit the readers of this blog well) so if you live anywhere near the West Midlands come join us for one all mighty shakedown. Getting dressed up is de rigueur for our events and we’ve got another cracking lineup which also features Free Breaks Blog’s head honcho Bertie Dastard, ghetto funkster Supabad (who was very appropriately christened James Brown by his parents – how cool???), hosted as ever by the Delightful Mrs Rickard, Liberty Pink as jazz singer extraordinaire and compère, award winning burlesque from Verity Grey, and myself..? Well I’m doing the premiere of my new VJ set called DJR presents Swing The Silver Screen. It’s gonna be stunning. Find out more here.

Slamboree Live + Caravan Palace DJ Set @ Electric Brixton, Nov 15th

Slamboree Caravan Palace Brixton
Also forthcoming is very impressive lineup on the 15th of November down in London-town. The Electric Brixton parties have been building up a great reputation and they return with the new show by festival legends Slamboree topping the bill, (this is one collective that everyone should experience at least once) along with electro swing legends Caravan Palace providing a DJ set, and also plenty of FBB favorites in the shape of Featurecast, Father Funk, Rumpsteppers, DJ Pony Montana, Dr. Malaka and DJ Chris Tofu.  For those haven’t been to the Electric Brixton  – it’s a stunning 1700 capacity period style venue which lends itself to this style of hoedown perfectly and it has been sold out for all of its events recently. I’m going to be down there to experience it all first hand so I’ll be reporting back next month on the biggest shakedown in the swing world. Find out more here.

See you on the dancefloor. ;)

Free Music

Let’s kick off with a strong start… The Flatcap boys have been adding some squelch to Get Up Stand Up. Good shit.

Kaptin and his Big Swing Soundsystem have turned a tidy bootleg in here:

Copycat getting funky again:

This is good. Quality swing & balkan vibes with Nikola Vujicic on the remix:

The grime sound of Dizzee Rascal has been matched up with some funky balkan beats on this tidy freebie from Smokey Joe & The Kid. Download.

Liking this, nice deep groove from the debut EP by Mortisville.

I might be pretty godless, but this makes me want to go to church. Yes yes electro-gospel goodness!

Flux Pavilion – Mountains & Molehills (Odjbox Remix)

Odjbox

Mid tempo specialist, Odjbox, returns with another triumphant remix, this time taking on the mighty sounds of Flux Pavillion. the swing-esque sound you may know him for is still there but with 10 times more bass. The ever evolving glitch funk style is at the forefront on this one with Turin Brakes vocals twisted around the speaker rattling sub frequencies. Definitely one of the stand outs on the remix package for me. Buy your copy HERE.

The past 12 months have seen Odjbox play high profile shows across UK & Europe, supporting genre-defining artists Gramatik, Flux Pavilion, Awol Nation, Griz & Wax Taylor at venues including Electric empire, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire & KOKO and renowned festivals Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair & Glade.  He is currently setting his sights for Australia and has several shows lined up for a trip in Jan/Feb 2015 with two sets at the spectacular Rainbow Serpent Festival and a Melbourne afterparty for the Serpent.

Bombstrikes Takeover

10 year logo1sqdusty

 

The Bombstrikes label are celebrating their 10th year in the game this year and are continuing the party over at Juno Download. For a very limited time you can grab all kinds of goodies for free and hugely discounted.

Bombstrikes have worked very hard for it but can easily be described as THE best label for funky, mid tempo bass music around. Starting things off way back in 2004 with Beat Vandals classic mashup ep Volume 1, things really kicked off for the label with Mooqee’s Volume 2 and the DJ Shadow sampling “Funk Machine Man”

This track was picked up by every turntablist, DJ, music nut on the planet and was hammered by the likes of Mixmaster Mike, Krafty Kuts, A Skillz and many, many more.

After that the labels place was pretty much cemented with more and more fans getting involved with every release. After several tracks and ep’s from the label owners they started to draft in the very best artists around to release banger after banger. Tracks from A Skillz, Nick Thayer, Featurecast, Qdup Foundation and Ali B spread that funky goodness afar and then looking to the future they signed up more talent with Pimpsoul, Bryx, Herbgrinder, Neon Steve and more joining the camp to fully nail their place as the best.

This week you can grab a special VIP of Mooqee & Herbgrinder’s “Sound Around Town” from Juno for free and whilst doing so be entered into a special competition to win the entire Bombstrikes back catalogue. That’s a lot of dancefloor ammunition right there. Click on the player below.


 

Also whilst you’re there you can pick up two specially reduced bundles from the label. First off “Party Classics”


 

And secondly “Future Bombs”


 

Just in case some of the awesome sounds had slipped your mind then check out the killer, 10 years in 10 minutes mix Mooqee and Beat Vandals put together earlier in the year.

So head over to Juno Download for all this and more and be sure to get involved with Bombstrikes via Facebook, Twitter and Youtube for all future music related news.
