Happy Birthday 8th Birthday to The Get Back in Las Vegas !!! The yearly promo mix has landed and let me tell you that round 7 it is an extremely good one. The CD consists of  the usual10-15 minute  mixes from each DJ, recorded live at the  GB over the last year, it’s arranged and packaged so you get the whole mix tape feeling with the live vibe to boot. Residents John Doe & Phoreyz mixes are tight as always. Guests on this one are DJ Day, King Most, Nu Mark from J5 and the soul brother DJ Haircut aka Mayer Hawthorne.

Get Back....

The Get Back is one of the premier funky soul dance parties in the states, it goes down on the 1st friday of each month in Las Vegas @ the Beauty Bar.  Recently it turned 7 & in celebration they gave out Volume 6 of their wonderful deep funk mix CD series. Each mini mix on the CD was recorded live in the last year with selectors John Doe, Phoreyz, Danny Boy plus guests Renato & Meaty Ogre all laying down the heat. These cats are serious collectors of anything funky and take pride in rolling out their Get Back sounds.  Live funk mixes don’t get much better than this…..

Caja Y GuacharachaFound In Translation

Mochilla have dropped their newest batch of eccentric Mix CD’s.

Quantic delivers Caja Y Guacharacha, which is a selection of earthy music from his new place of residency, Colombia & Panama. It is a very colourful, rhythmically complex and a selection of music you won’t of heard unless your from this part of the world and love digging. 

LA’s slept on mix tape bandito Phoreyz lays down the souled out, latin, cross genre funk fueled mix called Found In Translation.

Count Bass D and Aardvark have also released mixes but I decided for the 2 above. I have no doubt they are of a high standard because Mochilla is one of them labels that will always put out good stuff as the people running it are passionate about music & art.
