Bobby Tank’s style of glitchy electrofunk is something I can get EASILY used to! It’s so fresh and soulful, and has a way of delivering good vibes. Zario’s Echo is a smashing single from the UK’s latest EP, The Way. It’s an arrangement of all sorts of blissful sounds and pleasing samples.

Released one month ago, Gold has proved to be a huge success for English duo, Bondax. The beat has a sense of innocence to it, as if it’s too shy to express its true colors. It’s not a bad thing as I believe it compliments the vocals perfectly.

Back in October, Kameron Sears shared with us his fantastic, electro-house mix October Fest. It was one that was loaded with a lot of high-energy, dance tracks we can all enjoy. Now, Mr. Sears is back in action with something a little different and a lot more groovy (as I’m sure you could tell by the title of his mix). As he says, “this one is jammed packed with some seriously funky tunes that will keep you movin’ all night,enjoy!”
Modjo was a popular French duo back in the late 90s who’s hit single Lady (Hear Me Tonight) brought them major success. This classic house track made a huge impression on so many people during it’s time, and now — 12 years later — Canadian producer Kaytranada decided to revive its glory and tweak it into more of a funky track with cowbells, fat bass lines and a mixture of synths. The great thing about this producer is that he doesn’t have one set style, and can produce about anything he puts his mind to. Check his stuff out!
My love for Pretty Lights is how I discovered GRiZ, the 22-year old producer from Detroit, Michigan. His release of The Future Is Now quickly spread among the blogosphere thanks to its catchy, melodic basslines and live saxophone riffs played by GRiZ himself, and now he’s back with another electro-funk/glitch hop track with a chill vibe and cleverly-thought samples.
Anyone who has been following the scene closely should be familiar with Diplo. Simply put, he’s legendary status. From the days working with M.I.A. to his collaborated efforts with Switch, this American-based producer has been a huge influence to many. His eclectic style and love for music is what really makes Diplo a respectable figure and a pleasure to listen to. Not too long ago a radio rip of his trapstyle remix of Sweet Nothing aired on BBC 1; this should give you an idea of his diverse style of play.
To add on to this man’s greatness, Diplo shared with his SoundCloud followers a 36-minute mix he made while being stoned last night. It features a bunch of old records that perfectly define the state of mind he was in.
I hate to admit that I am a first-time listener of Featurecast. From what I’ve heard so far, this UK based producer has a unique sound blending elements of funk and breaks into his work. It’s fresh and enjoyable! This funked up edit of Skrillex’s ‘Goin Hard’ remix of Birdy Nam Nam’s Goin’ In is the perfect song to kick-start your weekend.
Hot off the press is Alex Metric’s take on Brooklyn’s electro-pop singer St. Lucia’s highly anticipated single, September. Taking more of a subtle approach than his recent remix of Ellie Goulding’s Anything Could Happen, Metric crafts together a nice disco-funk piece that can put the groove in anyone. Starting out with what could be mistaken as a hymn, the songs begins to pick up momentum around the 1:00 mark building up to a nice robotic drop that’s paired up with an infectious bassline.
