Yo yo yo Groovedroppers, it’s ‘Pick n Mix’ time, only ten days late which seems to conveniently coincide with the ten days of decent weather that we’ve experienced in the UK. Anyway, I’m now so burnt that I need to stay out of the sun so I’ve finally found the time to record and upload my favourite freebies from the month of June, all ‘Picked n Mixed’ up into a sticky, gooey, gelatinous hour of sweet funky freeness.
This will be the last monthly ‘Pick n Mix’ from me as I will be leaving the country (and reliable internet connection) at the end of August for a year or two. I’m chuffed to bits that so many of you have chosen to check out the tunes that have made my year funky, so if any of you want to continue checking out my goodies please follow me on Soundcloud, Mixcloud and befriend me on Facebook.
Anyways, I need to ladle out the love to all the producers featured in this here June ‘Pick n Mix’. If you do decide to download any of the delicious freebies please offer some compensation to the artist in the form of LOVE i.e. favouriting or leaving a comment on that mother.
As always I’ve got to Big Up my badman blog fam, Spinforth & Fat Harry (New bumper size scour going up tonight! Check it out here.), UK Glitch Hop, Adapted Records, Da HZ, nedfodder, The SNT, Funkfreak, Caliber Music, Doctor Hooka and Free Breaks Blog for their consistently excellent efforts to waft more funkiness under my nose. Cheers peeps!
I’ve also gotta shout out DJ Flac for pointing out that track 5 on last month’s ‘Pick n Mix’ is of course Love and Light’s cracking remix of Vokab Company and Crush Effect’s Back To The Past. Cheers geez!
