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.

RP12 - Timeless Pop (Really Good Pop Compilation)

September 24th, 2017

So I stuffed around, was somewhat mindless, there was a mouse click here and a click there, and before I knew it there was something about “are you sure?”, I clicked yes thinking I was ridding myself of useless files and BOOM media tracking files were gone. There were tears, lots of creative language, more tears and then I went off and had lunch. So what does this mean?

Well it means I am no longer really sure what was played before and what was not. For a while I am going to have to take it all by memory. What I will do though is capture all the playlists from the web site and write a small utility that will go into my track store and remove played tracks. This might take me about a month …all considerations included. Until then, all I can do is apologise and promise to be a heck of a lot more attentive I future.

As for this collection, a few words are necessary. Firstly, these are stunning tracks. I have had one or two people ask why the hell Pop is included in a Podcast/Blog that is mostly about Electronic Music, Well, it’s because life is too short to waste time giving a f**k. Truth. Contemplate that while we cook up something you will enjoy. In the meantime this will be a treat for Music Lovers and Lovers of Pop. Enjoy!

RH91 - The Slo’ Deep (Deep House Mix)

September 12th, 2017

The Road Less Travelled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

RL145 - Vintage Coffee House (Chillout Compilation)

September 8th, 2017

Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing. - Jaws
