Groovedrops October ‘Pick n Mix’

2 Nov


Yo yo Groovedroppers, happy new month ya‘ll (bollocks to Halloween!) and being the perceptive lot that you are, I reckon you’ll have already guessed that I’m celebrating all that calendar-page-turning-action with some delicious free tunage for your lucky lug holes. Welcome one and all to my ‘Pick n Mix’ of the best free tunes that have been made available to download via Soundcloud during October.




Firstly I’d like to apologise for not getting this mix up yesterday. I got online last night to find a certain Hip-Hop-hungry river horse had beat me to posting, selecting a sweet reworking of Stevie Wonder’s What The Fuss by Jayl Funk, which you can check out here. That same post-pinching hippo has also released a banging bit of Old School Voodooo Funk for free and managed to get himself scoured in the process! Congrats and Big Ups man, top tune that! Yesterday was also Thursday, which meant it was that time of the week when a cheeky little squirrel unveils his goodies for you by way of  the Weekly Soundcloud Scour, now live and lively over at Ghetto Funk HQ. Remember to get that thumb out for Spin, he needs to store up plenty to get him through the winter!

I’d also like to shout out FunkFreak, Free Breaks Blog, UK Glitch Hop, Adapted Records and of course Ghetto Funk for keeping my Facecrook feed full of beats, thanks for your efforts and Big Ups guys.

Of course, I also need to thank all the producers for their funky offerings. Huge Ups for all your time, hard work and generosity. PLEASE remember, if you download any of these free gems that also favouriting, commenting on or sharing them really is the very least you can do by way of a thank you!

Right, I’m going to try and get this over and done with now as I seriously doubt many people even read this much blurb. This  month’s mix has a distinctly glitched out vibe which I blame entirely on the madness that was last Friday at Whomp in Plan B, in Brixton. Huge Ups to Saam ‘Tryptich’ Hodivala for such an amazing night, the Itchy & Skratchy DJs, Vent and Opiuo for wrecking that sheet and all the happy, smiley people in attendance who made it such a laugh. Make sure you like the new Facecrook group here so you don’t miss the next one on Dec 28th (featuring Reso, Vent and Krossbow!). Then, when you see me there you can buy me a drink for the great advice, yeah? Yeah.

Right, all that’s left is for me to say a big thanks to YOU for checking out my mixed picks and for reading this far. Nice one yuuuuuur.

  1. DJ Inko Lets The Rhythm Hit Em. | GrooveDrops - November 4, 2012

    [...] The intro consists of a combination of delicious guitar licks and toe-tapping percussion before Inko ’let’s the rhythm hit em’, as in jumps Rakim, along with the bass, brass and keys to give this stone cold classic a funky new facelift. DJ Inko has been churning out fresh tunes recently, with this top quality remix rounding off a month of seriously impressive reworkings of Hip-hop classics. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Jay Z, The Beastie Boys and Derek B have all received a bit of a funking over this month, with the latter earning the Greek beat manipulator a well deserved Scouring over at Ghetto Funk HQ. Also posted recently is my personal favourite of Inko‘s, a crazy, crunchy, horn lead remix of DMX’s No Love For Me featuring Drag-On, which you can find featured in the best of October’s free downloads, Picked and Mixed here.
