Big Boy Funky Special!!


Tuesday night I heard what I think has been the best producer showcase that has taken place thus far. Tuned in to DJ Cameo on BBC London’s specialist urban station 1xtra, I wanted to see what this Funky Special I’d been hearing about so much was all about. What can I say…. Cameo delivered. Kicking off with Party Hard by Donaeo, it was evident that this was going to be a good show.

The part of the show I had tuned in to hear included interviews with a few UK Funky producers. Roska and Lil Silva in the studio, plus additional pre-recorded audio. It’s time to take notes for release info people!!

Donaeo
Album due out titled “Producer Turned Artist” Summer 09 containing Funky, Electro and Drum & Bass. This will contain Donaeo’s full Funky catalogue.

Naughty

*Exclusive* Devil In A Blue Dress Remix
Naughty has taken Donaeo’s vocals and applied them to a backing track of his own. This enables us listeners to absorb the vocals without the classic riff that is the original’s trademark. Naughty has given the track a whole new vibe with a jazzy soulful rendition. Best thing is Donaeo likes it!!
Mutya Buena – She’s Just A (Naughty Remix)
This track was originally a bashment track, however due to its appeal it is being re-released as a funky track. Look out for this one!!

Invasion Crew

OB
OB is the producer behind Signed and Sealed by Courtney Dennie which is out now.
The duo also have another track titled “Candlelit” which is out Jan 09
Also out Jan 09 is Domino Effect by Addictive (Invasion Remix). This vocal track is seriously funky. Tribal but electro and broken. What was my first description?? Hmmm…… Funky. I’ll stick to that for simple descriptions.

Tadow
*Exclusive* Elevation
This track struck me as slightly “Bugzy” but there is too strong of an invasion signature sound, accompanied with the sharp invasion drop to get it twisted. “Definitely a banger” – DJ Cameo

Fingaprint
*Exclusive* Night Time
You may have heard this track while out around town and on your radio or mix CDs. If you didn’t know who was behind this production…. You do now!!

DJ Cameo is back next week with another Funky Special. Tune in BBC 1Xtra Tuesday 22.00-00.00 hrs
