Needed to take a little hiatus, but Too Funk Tuesday is back and in full effect! Time to get over your Monday blues and wake up with some jamz that will get you ready for Humpday and the weekend. Sit back, relax, and take an aural ride!
Brothertiger — Lovers
Shout out to the OG, Spaceman, for this one. Like him, this track is a little old, but it definitely hasn’t lost a step. The vibe that truly kicked off the entire chillwave scene a few years back, “Lovers,” is a romantic side-step into the world of indie house and sensual synth-pop.
John Newman ft. Charlie Wilson — Tiring Game (Jean Tonique Remix)
Don’t believe the rumors: Nu Disco is not dead. This is living proof. From the magical fingertips of TFT-favorite Jean Tonique, the track is a full blast into the early 2000s where the likes of Breakbot, Yuksek, and others were dropping beauties like this every day.
This may be 3rd on the list, but this is easily the number one track on my playlist today. Before hitting play, turn your subs on, dim the lights, and get ready because this song is a funkified BANGER (haven’t used this term in years). “Veil Fein” is German for very fine and this track is fucking fine. Bass heavy and seriously groovy, it hits all the right parts.
This is for all Yuccies, waiting for that ‘new new’ to drop on the latest Too Funk Tuesday. Zimmer is my dude – I wish I knew him – and his latest mix is a barn-burner for sure with its tropical vibes, deep bass, and soulful vocals. Each drop in this song has a head shaking feel that just makes you want to lose yourself.
I count AVH as one of my heroes, not only in musical genius, but in style, suave, and swagger. This mix was made in 1993 and is evidence of a rawer, earthier house music scene that is unfounded in the perfectly-produced dance genre we have today. This is dance.
