What's In The Box?

Lots of you have been using the NuFunk.net dropbox, which is awesome - keep 'em coming.

So here's a quick run through the best of what we've been sent this week, including tracks and mixes from Fuzzbox Inc, Matty Blades and M-Bird.

But first, some raw, soulful live funk from French band, The Bad Dogs. Although some members of the band are only in their teens, their cover version of Nina Simone's classic 'Funkier Than A Mosquito's Tweeter' shows some serious soul.

Their album, 'Good Time, Bad Girl' features collaborations with musicians from around the world, including drums by Paco Serry, a man who has played with Nina Simone and Marvin Gaye amongst others.

Preview it below and if you like what you hear, buy it!

Next up, an incessantly groovy mixtape from M-Bird. 'Funky Town' is available for free download.

Also in the box we have a low-down funky hip-hop banger from TdashDUB & Phaze 5. 'A Classic By Request (Never Say Never)' has some wicked flute touches and a beautiful bassline.

To mark more than three years of NuFunk at 'Dropping Phat' in Melbourne, Matty Blades has put together a mix that's funky fresh in the flesh.

Lastly but far from  leastly, a Fuzzbox Inc mix from Ali B's KISS FM show, laden with exclusive refixes by the Fuzzboxers themselves.

Keep it droppin' in the box - we listen to everything we receive.
