Got a funky tune here today… a nice little remix of a Future Feelings track. Not much to say here other than I like the electronic funk and I you might too!

Pretty Lights released a new single the other day alongside a cool video. From him: “I dropped a brand new PL track for download today, along with the long anticipated NYE recap video! “You Get High” is a new style hip-hop jam that incorporates what I think sounds like a slow-mo disco stomp. It’s soulful and funky at the same time and it’s all about the high you feel when listening to good music. This will be the last sample-collage produced track I drop before my new album (made completely from self-made vinyl) comes out! Download “You Get High” from Grooveshark at no cost here: http://plmusic.pl/yougethigh The video is from a massive two night NYE celebration in Colorado – it was filmed and edited by RadioEditAV and includes some amazing GoPro footage that many of you have been asking for.

Gramatik just released his new EP, Digital Freedom, today for free. Six tracks of straight heat whereas a lot of his older stuff is much slower and more hip hop influenced. He addresses this on his Facebook: “Also, I just wanna say one thing to those who know me only by my chilled out hip-hop beatz: don’t be scared when you hear this EP, my true fans know that I’m nothing if not versatile. Good music is larger than one genre so just open your mind, absorb the vibes and you’ll be versatile too! Don’t you just love that word?”
I have been eagerly waiting for this release ever since I saw him here at The Independent in SF which by the way was a great show. He, along with Michael Menert, posted a youtube vid promoting this tour that included the track, “Talkbox Intended,” featured here today. Well we finally have the finished product so check it out and download the EP. As he mentions, open your mind and absorb the vibes.
Gramatik – Talkbox Intended
“Having Disco in your soul will draw other like minded individuals to you like moths to a flame, no matter how far across the universe apart you are. This is the story of four such people, and how they came to bring the funk to you.
Four men, a world apart, bound together by a love of Electro and Disco, swearing an oath to defeat the forces of soulless music and to party harder than anyone has partied before. The excitement that surrounds the group’s releases was evident from day one. The Electro blog world went into meltdown time and time again with each new remix, culminating in their universally acclaimed version of Chromeo’s ‘Hot Mess’, a Nu Disco anthem that shows Ride the Universe at their best, innovative and like someone drove a dump truck full of synth Funk up to your house and deposited it’s cargo on your doorstep.
Having actual musicians in the outfit alongside DJs and producers give ride The Universe the edge on the competition, deep butt shaking basslines and soaring guitar sit happily on the Electro grooves, taking them to the next level.”
