Naaah

If one thing is certain, it's that we're never bored in this country.


Broke, yes. Bored, naaah.

Laid-back

I couldn't possibly ask for a better tune to relax, sink into my bed, kiss this tiring week goodbye and get prepared for a new one.



I think I'm more into the instrumental version, as I can better relish the laid-back tempo, the soothing bass, the dope guitar...

Already sinking.

*Check out the whole album here before you give in to Morpheus as well.

Sexy-not sexy

This is a melodic proof that nothing can be sexy (or awesome) all the time.


Janko Nilovic's Machine Gun kicks off as one of the sexiest tunes ever, screws up the whole feeling at 0.45 with this cheesy '70s pattern, brings sexy back at 1.10, screws it up at 1.38 again, kicks ass at 2.05 and screws it up one final time towards the end. Kinda like real life.

Jazzy week-ending

After an evening walk at the Athens Jazz festival with jazzy and ethnic tunes from Yoav’s Eshed Trio Millionaires from Israel, Hijaz from Belgium and Mercan Dede Secret Tribe from Turkey, I'm kinda in the mood to let this week go with a jazzy tune that's more my kinda style.



I may not really get pure jazz, but I truly dig everything that is inspired by it.

While you're at it, check out the whole LTF debut album here. It kicks ass keeping the jazzy feeling, throwing at it some dirty hip-hop beats, with a little bit of scratchin', in a combination that with the right amount of volume can send you straight to hell.

Summer repeat

After having slept for only about 4 hours, this is the ONLY thing that managed to keep me up and movin' all day today, after about 3 million repeats. 


God how I love this early house feeling that stays alive in most mixes of this track (Pete Herbert's dub mix is about to ruin my repeat button as well).

Faze Action have been one of my favorite groups since the Kariba era, back in the late '90s. And they've been provin' me right for lovin' them, ever since.

Still funkin'

Funkanomics is a three member group from South Germany with a totally funked-up style, blending funk with other stuff like hip hop and whatever suits best in their funkadelic mind and ear.



Hit the free download button, burn a funk cd startin' with this and start drivin'. When all goes wrong, funk is the solution and these dudes seem to know what they’re doin’. Eyes on the road, ears on the music. That's all you need.

Funk high

Some people hike up and down a mountain or ride a bike covering kilometers or do yoga to get a natural high. That's nice, that's really nice and healthy. But I'd rather get my natural high from this.



Karim's version on John Luongo's version on Sly Stone's "High on you", 100% wicked funk ready to raise your pulse rate as if you just ran a marathon. Ok, ok almost as if you just ran a marathon.

track's info: 
Karim Chehab - I get high on you (Karim Basement Party Dub)

Sly Stone - I get high on you
Ten years too soon
