The Funky Melting Pot

This weblog is about funky music delivered as DJ Mixes. We cover mostly Lounge/Chillout but try to keep things as diverse as possible.

RL155 - Creamy Flow (Jazzy Chillout Compilation)

November 23rd, 2017

There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don't fit into their box are weird. But I'll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance. - C. JoyBell C.

RH99 - Deepworks (Deep House Mix)

November 22nd, 2017

Time is the most important thing in human life, for what is pleasure after the departure of time? and the most consolatory, since pain, when pain has passed, is nothing. Time is the wheel-track in which we roll on towards eternity, conducting us to the Incomprehensible. In its progress there is a ripening power, and it ripens us the more, and the more powerfully, when we duly estimate it. Listen to its voice, do not waste it, but regard it as the highest finite good, in which all finite things are resolved. - Von Humboldt

RL154 - Calabash (African Traditional Party Compilation)

November 11th, 2017

The curious beauty of African music is that it uplifts even as it tells a sad tale. You may be poor, you may have only a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope. African music is often about the aspirations of the people. - Nelson Mandela

Nueva Vida (Latin Lounge Compilation)

November 7th, 2017

The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.

RL151 - Memorable Del Mar (Lounge Compilation)

November 2nd, 2017

Stephen kissed me in the spring,
Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
And never kissed at all.

Stephen’s kiss was lost in jest,
Robin’s lost in play,
But the kiss in Colin’s eyes
Haunts me night and day.
― Sara Teasdale

RJ1 - Jazz After-Hours (Jazz Compilation)

October 31st, 2017

The requirement was for upbeat Jazz and I duly obliged. There is a mix of Western and Latin Jazz and, to keep people engaged, some recognizable classics here and there. Sorry for uploading it late but life happens and, besides, it’s better late than never. Next up is a Del Mar Classics compilation – you will not want to miss it. For now, however, please tap your feet to these babies. It is not often that you will hear a compilation purely made up of upbeat Jazz that you can dance to. Enjoy and I wish you an excellent week. Cheers.

RR5 - Raggae Bashment (Reggae Mix)

October 29th, 2017

So a Bashment, in Rastafarianism, is a Party. That tells you what you need to know about the mix. It consists of upbeat Reggae beats. Mind you, Reggae can go a lot faster than this as you will see in the near future. But this mix is part of a mix for a function last weekend and this is the pace that made sense on the day. Not everyone would have a liking for Reggae delivered at Chillhouse pace! But here in the 80 – 90 BPM Zone, Reggae is earsex and is incredibly hard to resist for the true music lover. There is a combination of old and relatively new because the mix is intended for a wide age range. I have always argued that there is a Reggae song for everyone and it was proven at the day. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.

On an unrelated note, it seems the Jazz Sunday thing has caught on a bit. I am doing a set for a function today and hope I will be able to upload a part of it (1 hour) tonight …latest tomorrow. It warms the heart to meet people whose tastes go deep. Laters and remember, Reggae Got Soul!!
