HOTMOOD VOLUME 5

HOTMOOD VOLUME 5

Hotmood continues to deliver the heat. One year after his debut on Tugboat Edits, he drops Volume 5 of his Hotmood series on sister-label Star Creature. Bouncing back and forth between Playa Del Carmen and Guadalajara, the tropical climate is sure channeled through his releases. His signature style of beatdown funk and jazz are shown in full effect here and what may be his most complete release to date.

RNT029 // Jacques Renault Edits

RNT029 // Jacques Renault Edits

NYC stalwart and international superstar Jacques Renault joins Brooklyn cohorts for a 4 track EP of superior edit stylings! On the A side “Cold Blooded” sources a classic, focusing on a hypnotic and rhythmic pattern for a solid 6 minutes before exploding into exuberant soul, while “Get Down” is a loose and greasy funk stomper.

On the flip, “Dream Machine” is disco sampled perfection, chopped and sliced with evident love. Finally, “That Sound” takes us home with its thunderous drums, slap bass, and a tasteful peppering of soulful vocals.

Fouk || Four Heads

Fouk || Four Heads

This exclusive mix tape achieves a lot in the space of an hour; it’s a whistle stop tour encompassing jazz flute, disco stabs, ending in a more typical Fouk-esque, funk laden house groove. The rhubarb and custard disparate styles are blended together masterfully and succinctly; meaning this cerebral mix not only keeps you guessing but is fabulously re-playable. Keep it close, it’s a certified pumper.

Toast Tapes Mix #038 // The Funk District

Toast Tapes Mix #038 // The Funk District

1.  To introduce yourself, who are you and how would you describe the Mexican disco scene?
 
– Well my name is Fernando Mendoza and I’m addicted to any type of funk and disco with a catchy bass line and groovy guitars… In other words I love everything sounding nice and fresh like funk on steroids.
 
– As a Mexican producer I feel the disco scene in my country already got a big push a couple of years ago by many talented artists but I think it’s about to get to the climax within the next two years, so it’s really our task to keep on supporting each other and especially the new rising talents that share the same love for the music.
 
2.  If you were stuck on a desert island, and could only listen to three albums for the rest of your life, what would they be?
 
– That’s really a tough question… I’ve been influenced by a lot of different artists throughout my life and most of them are from different genres, so the answer would really depend on the mood I’m in at the moment.
 
3.  How would you describe your latest single “Time Will Tell?”
 
– I would describe my last single “Time Will Tell” as an up-tempo jam filled with a lot of percussion and a lovely flute driven groove, not forgetting the funky bass line and the catchy vocals that blend very well with the rest of the instruments.
 
4.  Do you have any upcoming material or collaborations?
 
– Well yes, I was honored to be asked for a remix by Julius The Madthinker for his new upcoming project: Perspective… I made my own funky interpretation of one of his tracks he produced with Russoul aka Pleasure Prince and it’s being released on Aid To The Soulless at the end of March.
 
5.  Tell us a bit about the Mixtape you’ve put together.
 
– This mixtape I put together was made with love as a special compilation including the tracks I’ve been playing these days plus 2 forthcoming tracks by myself on the most respected label Hot Digits Music that are going to be released later on this year. It also includes one of the 2 tracks which will be released on my own label Furious Mandrill Records.
 
I hope you really enjoy the mix !
 
Peace,
Fernando Mendoza (The Funk District)
