Mixtape time guys, this week’s selected selectas are Memory9, Bare Naturals and Jack B Nimble… lets get to it:


Here’s something much more laid back than I usually post, a sublime mix of wonky funk, or perhaps funky wonk, hip hop, global electronica full of lovely surprises… Or “a shuttle ride through the cosmic slop” as they say over at Skanky Panky. Memory9’s own tune Crash at 28 minutes-ish is exquisite, and I love the juxtaposition with Silkie’s Concrete Jungle Deep which follows. The dirty south / celtic fiddle of Willie Isz’ The Grussle at 45.00 is amazing – and another unexpected transition that works amazingly – and there’s an interesting take on Goran Bregovic’s Kalasnjikov, toning down its crazy freneticism (is that a word?) at the end.

Check out M9’s forthcoming Skanky Panky Release here: Memory 9 feat Jukali – Mission

Bare Naturals

Global tech haus, uk funky, dutty dutch & bootyshakin baile funk. Listening to this I was trying to figure out what the current tune was and guessed i was at about track 4 – then suddenly Afrojack’s Pon The Street started coming in, which is track 10… that’s a sign of a skilful blend if you ask me, these dudes aren’t just mixing intros into outros but properly blending this stuff together, whilst still creating something that makes sense overall… check it!
