Wildlife! – Boiler EP

Wildlife! has just released his first full length LP, Roxy Reboot, but definitely isn’t stopping for a breather. Lisbon label Enchufada have just dropped his Boiler EP, bringing together three tracks that draw heavily from sounds we love at Mixpak – UK Funky and dancehall. Go grab those heaters now, they’re free!

Murlo x Samrai x Fox

London’s Murlo, who has just contributed to our latest Mixpak Pressure series, has teamed up with Manchester producer Samrai & MC Fox for this bassline-tinged new one: ‘Uptown/Downtown’. It’s super exclusive for now, check the Rinse FM rip right here:

Crazy Cousinz – Funky Anthem (Murlo fix)

While UK Funky seems to have slipped away slightly, there are tracks that’ll still blow up a dance years on. Crazy Cousinz’ ‘Funky Anthem’ is one of those, and that’s no doubt why Murlo has put his signature touch to the original. No download yet, but watch out for his next release on Mixpak Pressure: Volume Two, coming very soon!

Funkystepz – Backlog EP

Funkystepz have a brand new and colossal 9-track EP soon to be dropping on their label, Forever Live Young. Flipping through computer game aesthetics, dark funky and hints of grime, the UK team always have the dancefloor in mind.

Lamin Fofana – Brokedown City

A series of drum sections on this track leapfrog one another with precision coordination, cascading along with an effortless flow. Built around a Funkyish rhythm, rolling hand drums bring a deep green coolness to the hard grey underpinnings of programmed exactness and pulsating circuitry. But a mood of gravity pervades the track, hinting that its unrelenting pace is born of necessity. Equatorial nature reclaims landscapes altered by advanced societies, while untended facilities threaten to rupture. Lamin dropped this free download earlier in the month to raise awareness for his new single on Sticks N’ Stones Recordings. The vinyl version drops today, so go cop that. (Photo by Steve Bayens.)
