Welcome one and all and thank you for joining me for another hypothetical party bag packed with some of the sweet soul, glitchy gifts and funky freebies that have been released on Soundcloud over the past month.
I’m a little pressed for time today as I’ll soon be heading to Croatia to check out Dimensions Festival, (and more importantly to escape the sunshine-immune U.K for a week!), so I’ll spare you my usual few paragraphs of nonsense and get straight to the shout outs….
Firstly I’d like to thank all the producers who allowed their tunes to be downloaded for nothing this month. HUGE ups for your generosity and all your hard work. As always I’d like to remind you lovely listeners to follow, favourite and comment on any tune that you do download to show your appreciation to the artist. It’s not much to ask considering the amount of effort that goes into each track!
Secondly I’d like to thank and big up Spinforth for his awesome, (almost) weekly Soundcloud Scour over at Ghetto Funk HQ, which makes the ‘Picking’ half of my job so much easier. I’d also like to shout out and big up the excellent Free Breaks Blog and Boy Like Belton for their tireless efforts in bringing so many dope new sounds to my attention. Cheers chaps!
Lastly I’d like to thank everyone who checked out last month’s first ever ‘Pick n Mix’ and showed love. I was rather chuffed at the amount of people who bothered to give it a listen and you’re all responsible for it becoming a regular Groovedrops feature, so big up yourselves, innit.
Right that’s enough bollocks from me, I’m off to try and find somewhere that sells swimming goggles. If you have a tune that you think might fit nicely into September’s ‘Pick n Mix’ then please lob it into our drop box and I’ll give it a good old listen.
