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.

RL144 - Streetwise (Lounge Mix)

August 30th, 2017

A refreshing compilation of energetic, upbeat and, of course, funky tracks for your enjoyment. There is a nice balance between Electronic Lounge and Jazzy Lounge and both help to create a lively a set. You will notice that there are few artists featured here who are also responsible for some of those slow cooked tracks in “Sunset Intermission”. That means funky baselines and uplifting but yet also chilled grooves. The percussion here is just scintillating and the bass drums thump with the urgency of Thor’s hammer. They hit deep and force you to stay locked into the groove. Magical beats, addictive bass lines, moving grooves - mystical experience. Enjoy!

RH89 - Sunset Intermission (Chillhouse Mix)

August 29th, 2017

A collection of slowly cooked funky tracks from some big hitting artists in the Chillout scene. The mood is all about the enjoyment of sunsets (and other chilled events) with suitably upbeat and yet not fast House Music. Whatever device you use for listening, or speakers, I just hope that you are not unfortunate enough to be robbed off the rich and funky baselines in these tracks. It is magnificent! Sit back, chill and enjoy. This is pretty good funkyware.

RL143 - Choice African Selection (African Chillout)

August 28th, 2017

I have friends that keep asking me what my favourite African tracks have been so far. I can never remember their names and always mumble out one excuse or the other. So this weekend I thought it would be better to just bring them together in a compilation or two. This is the first …the second will pop sooner or later. There is some gorgeous ear candy here. Who cares what they are singing about? As long they have a firm grasp on reality and a strong feel for beauty its all good. Those concepts are universal – they are the only passport you will need to a world of music. Cheers and please enjoy.

“If lots of men around you are growing a beard just because of political or ideological reasons, you refuse this, and if you have a beard, shave it off! Leave your herd to find yourself! Find your own style, not the style your ideology or your party is dictating on you! Remember, you build a sound character mostly through refusing, through saying no, through staying different!” - Mehmet Murat ildan
