Well, after a nice Christmas and New Year break it is all back in the office at Funk and Filth Towers, with a definite feeling that 2012 is going to be one hell of a year, and Funk and Filth will be delivering the best free bits straight to you!
2011 is going to be a hard one to beat, if our Funk and Filth Hall of Fame throughout December is anything to judge by. Having run down the funkiest and the filthiest people of last year, it seems only fair to set the good folk of 2012 a benchmark to aim for. So, with that in mind, here is my interpretation of some perfect funk and some textbook filth from last year.
Funkier than James Brown!
Coming near the top of the year was A.Skillz's remix of Marlena Shaw's 'California Soul'. With crisp vocals snipped from the original and a bassline sweeter than a honey-coated sugar cube it was obvious from the first play that this one was going to be hard to beat! A.Skillz has offered it up for free download, grab it right here:
Filthier than Skeletor's jock-strap!
The Kill The Noise remix of Porter Robinson's 'Spitfire' destroyed dancefloors all over the place for the second half of 2011, and is still featuring in a lot of sets as we head into 2012. With an unmistakable intro and a second drumstep drop that will leave your ears ringing and your feet stomping for several days after . . . download it for free below to see what it's all about.
DJs and Producers of 2012, the gauntlet has been thrown down, the standard has been set and we are braced for impact.
Do. Your. Worst!
