Too Funk Tuesday #10

Too Funk Tuesday is back again and this time, Spring is in session. The tracks pulled together below are meant to warm your soul and help bloom the love and perspective that comes from the heat of summer. Please enjoy!

Caroline Koch — Timeless (Tchami Remix)

No matter if you’re a fan of new school deep house or not, Tchami is by far one of the best producers in the game right now and this track is a measure of why. Something different than his usual dancefloor bangers, this track brings a garage house vibe that would rip up any UK disco. His remix of Caroline Koch is an eclectic mix of filtered vocals, simple breakbeats and heavy synths — a bit dark in melody but highly danceable. Take a listen:

Tinashe — All Hands on Deck (Giraffage Remix)

If you’re looking for a song that is popular on a mainstream level but needs a heavy bit of bass to match your latest mix’s BPM, well you’ve got one here. Giraffage blows up the spot with this piece of magic. Driving deep vibes with a beautiful transition into pop vocals, the bridges really stick out in this one and could really help a DJ set along.

Kid Ink — Be Real (Wax Motif & Gladiator)

Nero is the last dance artist that has truly incorporated dubstep or heavy electro in a way that can still appeal on a crossover way. This track from Wax Motif and Gladiator is on that same path with its mind-altering bassline and filtered, french touch-esque vocal from Kid Ink. I’m a big fan of this track because it represents how far dance music has come in its evolution of sound and incorporation of different sub-genres.

Arches ft. Karen Harding — New Love

Belgian producer Arches is back with a new, original track on The Magician’s latest imprint “Potion” which will be dropping soon. This song is a well-deserved inclusion with its infectious dance feel and energetic vibe, this song is made for the radio and when you’re getting ready to go to the club. Karen Harding kills it per usual with her dance-ready voice, backed by piano crescendos and a deep, driving bass.

Miguel — Do You (Robotaki Midnight Snack Edit)

If you’re made it this far in this week’s Too Funk Tuesday, I applaud and would like to thank you with this amazing edit from French Canadian Robotaki. This song is made for late summer nights with your girl or boy when you need something to spark some love. It’s got this amazingly unique feel with samples of live instrumentation soaked in, and an up and down melody that gives you time to pause, rest and repeat.
