Mr Jem Stone, (aka Soul Of Man, Jem Panufnik, Finger Lickin Records) is soon set to release a brand new album entitled “Stone Grooves Vol.1″. If you’ve been following the exploits of Jem via Bandcamp you will be familiar with his eclectic styles so will have some idea of what to expect from the long player. Those that don’t can expect (in Jem’s own words) “a deep, gentle, scruffy, stompy, bumpy, flappy and downright scrunchy beefcake musical journey into the depths of my soul.”
The freebie on offer today is a teaser called “Penshala”. It’s a mellow, slow burner that is perfect late night, chill out material and has got us all excited for the full long player. Check back to these pages soon for full album review.
This mix from Dr Packer is whats right in the world right now, vibrant sounds, fun and funky nu-disco vibes and the summer sun in your face. Recorded at a recent set from a pool party gig in Perth WA supporting Late Nite Tuff Guy, it really is a perfect warmup for such a legendary headliner.
What do you get when Featurecast and WBBL team up on a tune? A super bouncy synth laden funk fest of the highest calibre that’s what!
We here at the blog have probably shared more than our fair share of Basement Freaks posts over the last couple of years and the main reason we keep coming back again and again, wether it’s for the free tunes, bootlegs or mixtapes, would have to be the quality, quality in production techniques, attention to detail and of course that good ol’ fashion funk. This quality has definitely transferred to the live funk loop sample pack the B.Freaks just released thru Blackoctopus Sounds, with the aptly named Funk Legends not just living up to expectations but taking it to the next level entirely. This collection packs a serious punch with live and synth bass, guitar, brass, flute, clavinets, piano and drum loops galore and with tempos ranging from 90bpm to 119bpm there is plenty to get excited about. With these funky fresh royalty free sounds at your fingertips, inspiration will most definitely soon follow.
2014 was also a stellar year as far as funky free music from the Freaks with a mammoth number of bootlegs, remixes and originals as well as a large number of Boombastice Jam label releases all getting the free download treatment and all dripping with that same quality i keep writing about. Don’t just take my word for it though, check out the tracks below and i’m guessing soon after you will be on the download!
Edit masters JR.Dynamite and Hober Mallow recently invited some of Australias top funky DJ/ producers to submit tunes for a totally free compilation album and with artists the likes of DJ Daigo, Casual Connection, Copycat, CC:Disco!, Mr Chombee, Klue, Dj Soup, PhysiQue and myself all joining JR and Hober on this exceptional collection, it really is a must have for all the funk and disco lovers out there. Grap your copy HERE now!
