New Ikebe Shakedown Remixes

Just when you thought Ikebe Shakedown couldn't get any funkier, Ubiquity Records is putting out a new 12" of 4 dance-floor shaking tracks.  Brennan Green is putting his funky house twist on Tujunga, the Ikebe Shakedown jam that kicks off their self-titled album (a must have for any afro-funky fanatic).  Be careful before you hit play on this one.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

New Mixtape from Boddhi Satva

Boddhi Satva is part of a group of budding beatmakers blending organic African sounds with contemporary electronic mediums.  The end result is absolutely magical if you're like me and the raw soulful sounds of the continent speak to your core mixed with the produced electronic elements that make you dance.  Blending the best of both worlds is a task few producers pull off so seamlessly.  Dig the mixtape and see for yourself.

Tasty Free Track from Bosq featured on Waxpoetics

This track is so delicious I absolutely had to share it.  The release from Bosq as featured on Waxpoetics is a link back to a bygone Tropicalia time.  The smooth sound of the rhodes, the gentle pattern of the drums, the beautiful glide of the vocals: pure heaven.  Dig it.
