Frank Ocean – Pink Matter (Manik rework); Manik’s latest Rework dropped the other day with the limited 1000 downloads being snapped up within 24 hours. It’s the 5th rework in his on going series and is an absolute blinder. In fact, all of the reworks to date have been excellent. Make sure you follow him on soundcloud to get the jump on rework 006.

Nas vs Massive Attack I hear you say? Yup, Tim Goldsworthy has re-arranged Nas‘ track ‘The Don‘ against Massive attack. The out come? a chilled, eerie, low key affair with plenty still going for it. I will always love the original of The Don as the beat is crazy, but this is a well flipped edit non the less, and looks as if it’s got Nas‘ approval. Check it out…

Manik has just released the 4th installment of his Edit Series, and you should make sure you download this quick, as the Neon Indian Rework/Edit maxed out in only a few days. Once the 1000 downloads have been reached you won’t be able to get it, unless I put it up for download on here, but thats not going to happen. I’ve also included his other edits from the past year, Enjoy…

The only thing that keeps Detroit Swindle from actually being from Detroit is that they are born and raised in Amsterdam, a little over 6000 kilometers away. So even though they’ve got their 4 feet firmly positioned on Dutch soil, their heads and hearts are rooted deep into the soul of the motor city.
Detroit Swindle consists of Lars Dales and Maarten Smeets, 2 guys who haven’t actually grown up together, but have had practically an identical musical upbringing. A vibrant mix of Motown-soul, funk, hip hop and jazz inspired them from an early age on and they have a clear vision on the music they produce and play. If you can’t nod your head to it, they probably won’t like it.
Here’s the Morning Factory Remix of ‘Nothing else matters’ that was released last month. Make sure you pick up the full release at any of the big digital stores

For the better part of two decades, Funkmaster Flex has established his place as a living legend of hip-hop radio. When Flex premieres a new record on New York’s Hot 97—dropping bombs over each and ever replay—it’s more than just a debut; it’s an unmatched experience. As his profile has grown, Flex has parlayed his brand into everything from sneaker contracts to motor vehicle endorsements—and of course his digital game is serious—but thankfully, all that success hasn’t changed him one bit. In 2012, he’s just as disrespectfully entertaining as ever.
Funk Flex is one of the fiercest competitors in the game, and the Big Dog Pitbull loves to bark on the competition. As the days get longer and Flex gets his hands on the latest batch of brand-new summer anthems, we can all look forward to more of that take-no-prisoners New York shit-talking that we know and love.
To celebrate Flex’s in-your-face personality we’ve gone digging through the archives to bring you The Funkmaster Flex Soundboard. So here’s the crème de la crème of his dominant run, assembled for your listening pleasure. Don’t be a hamburger.
Check it out here.

Catz n Dogz are one of the busiest duo’s about at the moment. Running their label Pets recordings, dropping new E.P.’s, and remixing everyone under the sun. This time they take Jay Shepherd’s ‘Add Arp’ and remix it into a laid back soulful summer jam, which is soon to be released later this month on Retrofit. Perfect for those 7am sets as the sun is rising.

Make sure you check out some of his other sounds here as there are a couple of choice cuts that rock the party right.sleaze

So we have a weird Frank Sinatra/Notorious B.I.G. mixtape this week. Like all album ‘mash ups’ that have come before, there are a couple of tracks that work well, and there are some that should have never been touched. Here’s a couple of tracks to give you an idea. You can download the full mix tape here
Also check out this trailer for Ice T’s upcoming documentary/film on Hip Hop.

Yesterday I took a walk down to the local waterfall for some down time, and I tripped over Adriana Lima just chilling out. She mentioned she was listening to some great house music and demanded I listen to it. Naturally a world re-known beauty like that is usually into what Guetta fans call ‘house’, but oh no, this modern day marvel showed me she wasn’t the only gem flouncing around on the rocks. What am I talking about? Listen to these and you will see my story is only a part/complete lie…
Pirupa – Party Non Stop (vocal mix)
Heres a couple of slow burners:
Claude Vonstroke & Jaw – Le Fantome
Damn, that woman has good taste. You can pick up all these tracks over at beatport
