My Top 10 House/Funky Mix CDs of 2008


With my ‘Mix CD of the Month’ feature in mind, I felt it was only logical when DJ Sef suggested I put up my favourites for the whole of 2008 following his. I wasn’t sure if I had enough favourites when he first suggested it, but it came to light that I had favourite CDs in abundance. In a matter of fact I’ve had a few CDs on heavy rotation this year…

Couple had drifted over from 2007, and to be honest, there is a particular Pioneer CD that I really wish I could include. The CD lived in my bedroom stereo for nearly 4 months!! Fearing I wouldn’t get it back, I had to compromise and put it on a USB stick which I would borrow out instead…… If you know about the Paradise meets Persuasion CD for Pioneers B’day Bash in 2007, then you will know what I’m talking about. The CD in its prime proved to be heavy conversion material.

Moving on swiftly to which CDs have been my favourites in 2008, I would like to make it clear that I have NOT got EVERY CD that was released, SO there may be some that I would’ve preferred out there and if your CD isn’t mentioned, there is NO implication behind it.

DJs are listed in alphabetical order

1. Carlos Aries – I Wanna Funk You – Summer 08
2. D-Malice – Diamond In Da Ruff Vol. 1
3. D- Pressure – Summer Soulbox 08
4. Deja Vu – Are You Funkin Serious Vol. 1
5. Funk Butcher – Soul Fool
6. Geeneus – Yellow 20th March 2008
7. Gumbo & Coldsteps – I Will Be There meets Man of the House
8. Scholar T – Funky Junkie 20th June 2008
9. Teaser – House Journal
10. Twista – Dubplate Specials

There were many other CDs that didn’t make the list that were still heavy rotators. So I’d like to BIG up all the DJs out there doing their thing and never forget all the producers providing us with that selection that makes our bodies move. Without them, there would be no music. It’s all about spreading love within the movement and taking it much further forward than 2009!!

Peace, love, health and prosperity…..
