Future Classic: Omar “Dancing” (K15 Remix)

There are tons of reasons why this is an easy choice for our Future Classics section. Here are a few. 1) When an up and coming producer tackles a classic it usually leaves us a bit unimpressed. But not in this case.  London’s K15 takes Omar’s carnival anthem “Dancing” (originally produced …

Future Classic: The Old Writer “Spirits In The Basements EP” (Home Of House Records)

The Old Writer is discretely coming back with his second release on his own, Home of House imprint. Discrete in the sense that no hype was associated with it. Just a strong EP of timeless House music that will appeal to the ones who dig deep through all the generic …

Future Classic: Moon B “Ill Realms”

Back with the 1st Voyage Funktastique Show of 2015, and I had a good 5 weeks of compiling new material for the show; first, I have to thank my homie Temu (which I featured his latest track Temu’s Talkbox Groove to start the show) for his amazing performance at the …

Future Classic: Ticklah “Ya Llego” feat. Mayra Vega

I can be a bit reluctant to “edits” and “versions” of certain tracks, especially classics. More often then not the edits tend to strip the original soul and flavor of the track and replace it with a monotone breakbeat or an ill-fitting rhythm. Back in the early parts of last …

Future Classic: Jean Grae “#5″ EP

Seriously, how amazing has 2014 been for R&B and Soulful music? This year has featured countless releases which will be remembered as classics in a few years. Taylor McFerrin, D’Angelo (!), Fatima, Diggs Duke, Hiatus Kaiyote to name a few. As if we needed anything more to add to this …

Future Classic: Ol’ Burger Beats “High Rhodes”

Lately, I came to the realization that most of my favorite new hip hop/beats albums come from unexpected places around the world. The “beats” scene is clearly no longer limited to the US West Coast or Detroit & NYC. Another great example of this is the first official project by …

Future Classic: Temu “Funkadophilus! & The Brass Operator” (Or An Ode To Bootsy)

Every week, it’s the same dilemma; which track should I write about, and for this week’s show, it was the same story, although Temu made it a little easier on me, with his latest release, Funkadophilus, featuring the Brass Operator. I started the show with this amazing jam, that will …

Future Classic: Waltaa & Grems “Gospel”

Ohhh my lord. Talk about a dream collaboration right here! Grems and Walter Mecca, two of our favorite artists from France (and anywhere actually) join forces on “Gospel”. Since I’ve hardly heard any tracks I don’t like from them my expectations were high. But it really only took a few …

Future Classic: Swarvy “Scotch”

Suggestion to young producers of the “beats” variety (if that’s what we’re still calling it): focus on making original, ambitious music of your own instead of fighting for likes and plays with productions/remixes/edits that sound like copies of copies. Follow the example set by young American producer SWARVY and his …
