DJ D-Mac and Rockmaster Rus B. spin funk, breaks, disco, and boogie tonight at Café Saint-Ex
I first heard of Sola Rosa around 2010. This New Zealand native soul collective really blew me away with their mix of organic soul and electronic production. I’ve since loved many of their tracks and remixes. “Spining Top Ft. L.A. Mitchell” exemplifies what I love about them. It’s a really great tune. The world needs more […]
Spring is just starting to show itself here in DC. Here’s a DJ Mix made March 2013 with the vibes of spring in the air. A bit of Glitch Hop, Ghetto Funk, Disco, Breaks and House music thats doing it for me on the dance floor.
As All Good Funk Alliance, my partner and I have recorded a new album over the past 2.5 years and it is coming out on May 1st. Before that we have leaked a 5 song EP to some DJ-only sites before the release date. The song below “Mr Hipnoid” which features Rubber Johnson on vocal duties is one of the heavy hitters from the album. We are really proud of the new material and I thought I would share it here.
My production duo, All Good Funk Alliance, were recently asked to provide a mix for Rory Hoy’s Ramp FM show recently so we whipped up this mix of Future Go-Go, Ghetto Funk and breaks for him.
Getting some shine from none other than Turntable Lab, Rockmaster Rus B (aka our very own Rusty B.) has just released his latest single, a funky reworking of Vanilla Ice‘s 1990 classic “Ice Ice Baby.”
A heavy stack of funky soul and Latin jams, all on 7 inchers. 1.

Spent a while on the final Sunday of September inside Som Records, and grabbed a few nice ones… 1. Johnny Lytle – The New Village Caller [Milestone Records] Funky soul-jazz on the 1971 Soulful Rebel LP from vibist Johnny Lytle. The grooves are tight yet very funky, thanks to solid backing from Billy Nunn (organ), Ron […]
Middle of August and folks are saying summer is winding down. I disagree. Summer holds on in the nation’s capitol ’til October sometimes… 1. Phantom Slasher – Nicoteen [Noid] The Idjut Boys throw on another pseudonym and turn out another stellar re-edit. This time its the Italo-disco of Five Sinners’ Magic. Nice boogie groove here. 2. Aldo […]
New essentials, mix tape fodder and floor rockers. 1. Habitual Parking Violators – One to Twelve [REBTUZ] The Sesame Street disco counting classic gets another re-edit, but this time on very handy 7 inch vinyl. 2. Incredible Bongo Band – Apache [Mr. Bongo Recordings] The bongo-fueled break classic on a loud 12 inch with a Grandmaster Flash […]
