Funky House Edition 2008 v2 | Pt. 1 & 2

Funky Edition 2008 v2

I finally got this thing wrapped up. I thought I was being so smart and had this mix in the can before my Prog mix last week. So I figured I’d hold out for Mariah’s TMB (David Morales Mix) which is supposedly very funky. Unfortunately, that mix has yet to see the light of day, though I’m guessing a CD pressing may be in the works for a Perfect Beat exclusive next week. Initially, I thought I wouldn’t have enough songs to create this mix. Because I held out for the DM mix, new stuff continued to arrive. So yesterday, I went back and threw out the entire mix and started from scratch. I have to say, the end result kicks some serious boot-ay!

Some of you might be wondering…what happened to that funky new Bimbo Jones song? It turns out that the song is not new. Apparently, it was released two years ago. Consequently, I decided not to use it (though I absolutely love the song). However, there is some good news to this story. Apparently, Bimbo Jones along with Katherine Ellis (who I absolutely adore…watch out Kristine W) has signed a deal with Tommy Boy records here in the U.S. to release a full album sometime this summer. There is no doubt that BJ has been hot, hot, hot lately. However, the “Harlem One Stop” shows an element of their production style that I haven’t seen until now. Needless to say, I’m ecstatic about this project and will keep everyone posted.

In other news, I’ve finally got listed on iTunes and will now be providing a download link for those of you that use the service. I also managed to work out a really good deal with Podbean which will significantly lower my overhead costs and provide unlimited bandwidth. That’s right, you heard it…unlimited! If you have read my recent posting in the chatterbox, you’d see that my 4shared account was overwhelmed recently. Apparently, my Deep Edition v3 was posted on a Russian music site and generated a lot of traffic and downloads. According to their site, by law, they weren’t allowed to provide a direct link to the mix. Instead, they provided a link back to my site. Glad they loved the mix, but it ate up all my bandwidth much sooner than normal. Needless to say, this will no longer be an issue.

Finally, you’ll notice that I’m slowly implementing changes to this blog. More significantly, I’ve now added “donation” buttons for the mixes. Even though I’ve managed to lower my costs in one area, there’s not much I can do in another. Better than 2/3 of the music in the mixes has been purchased through one of the legal download services. As you all know, this ain’t cheap. You might say, well why don’t you hunt it down? For one, I prefer to support the artists whenever possible. Two, there’s not enough time in my day to hunt down this that and the other. Three, as a product of the “gimme more now” generation, I want what I want when I want it : ) So, if you like what I’m providing, how ’bout hooking a brother up with a small donation. $5 every other month or so ain’t going to break the bank and collectively goes a long way towards my overall costs. At the very least, please leave some comments and let me know what you think. Sometimes I feel like a cheap one night stand where people just come in and bang and leave. Geez, I feel so used ; )

Alright, that’s enough whining for now. Just want to remind you all that I will be taking a sabbatical for the next two weeks to work on other projects that I’ve neglected. I’ll be back with the next installment of the “Deep Edition”. Until then, shake, shake, shake (your boot-ay) like there’s no tomorrow! Have a great weekend and as always…Enjoy!
