Funky Friday Round-Up

The best of this week's releases includes skanky funk from suonho, raw banging freshness from Chris Awesome and a disco boogie workout from DJ Agent 86, who has also provided a wicked free track for your listening pleasure.

Big. Real big.

Chris Awesome - Don't Say You Love Me (The Remix EP)

Chris Awesome up first, with the 'Don't Say You Love Me' remix EP on Big M. Chris flips a classic disco sample into a dancefloor-devastating groove. Party-friendly samples, crisp, thumping beats and enough builds and drops to hype any party make this one of the best releases so far this year.

No content with a slamming original track - Mr Awesome gets some of the biggest names in the game on remix duty.

Busta takes the track into heavy wobble territory, with some fierce bass noises and shuffling dubby beats while DJ Kid Stretch adds extra soulful vox and wicked rolling breaks to the mix. Meanwhile, Hayz takes us back to '96 with a fresh bigbeat remix, full of tight vocal slices and one of the baddest fuzz basses this side of Roger Troutman's keyboard.

This is a serious package - consistently fly yet widely varied. Grab it now on Juno and preview the goodness below.

This is wickedly fresh business with a lush little breakdown later on in the track.

DJ Agent 86 - All About The Money

Get set for the summer of ska breaks - the amount of wicked, bouncy skank-funk we're getting sent is a good sign that summer is truly on the way.

DJ Agent 86 gets in on the act with 'All About The Money', out now on Lightspeed. Expect a relentless bass, hip-hop vocals, filtered vibes and some hands-in-the-air drops on this track. There are also some lush brass touches to add to the fresh feel of the tune.

There's an instrumental version included in the package and a remix by DJ Butcher of Chopshop, who takes the track in a funky percussive new direction.

As a special treat to our readers, DJ Agent 86 has also given us a link to the fourth track on this package, which you can download for free. 'Pick Up The Party' is a disco-hop banger that puts a smile straight on your face! Grab it here, you lucky, lucky people.

Listen to 'All About The Money' below and buy on Juno.
