Funky Friday Round-Up

Big new tunes and releases in NuFunk this week from Illeist Collective, the mighty Dr Rubberfunk and fabulous freebies from the superb 6ix Toys and Fatboy Slim.

Illeist Collective - Every Time Fy. Ninelives The Cat

Tough techy beats and turbo-charged bass back up another fly verbal performance from Ninelives The Cat. This release, the first on new label  Roca, comes with hype remixes from CMC & Silenta, Funkanomics and D-Funk.

It's due for release mid-May. Take a listen below and as always - if you like what you hear, go buy it.

Dr Rubberfunk - Northern Comfort

One of the longest serving, most innovative and creative names in the NuFunk scene, Dr Rubberfunk, is back with a soulful groover on Jalapeno Records.

'Northern Comfort' sees the good doctor teaming up with singer John Turrell to create rolling soul smash with a wonderful vocal performance.

Slynk puts in a smooth remix, which alternates between drifting and driving, and the single has a bonus in the shape of 'Bombay Bossa', where twangy sitar sounds and snappy drums shimmer alongside psychedelic reverse lines and lush instrumentation.

Have a listen below and check out the release on Juno to buy.

6is Toys - Do Your Thing

Available on 7" vinyl, this driving funk cover version is also available as a 'name your price' download from 6ix Toys Bandcamp page.

It comes backed with a bass-heavy jazzy hip-hop number, 'Turner & Ride'.

The band have loads of material on their Bandcamp page, some for sale, some for free. I recommend you check it out.
