What Are You Listening To Lately


This is pretty slammin’, much like the whole album…




If there’s one thing I think I will never understand, it’s the appeal of funk music.


It’s been misunderstood for eons… :sparkles:


Ya daft funkist!


Haha, I am a funkist, I concede. It just always seems so… pleased with itself, despite being completely formulaic.

But I am strange.


You can’t help be pleased with yourself when you got the funk!
I spend most of my music-making time trying to produce awkward and strange electronic noises and beats and describe it to anyone I happen to chat to it about as “machine funk”
I had to give a lift to a stanger from work the other day and i’d previously been listening to a work in progress in the car.
His face contorted and he said “what the fuck is this?”
I appreciated his honesty,
I explained it was “machine funk”
He said “where’s the funk?”
I said “Are you aware of AphexTwin’s Window Licker?”
He said “No”
I asked him who his favourite band was, he said Coldplay. I wanted to punch him and i’m a staunch pacifist!
This isn’t going well, is it?
Basically, what i’m trying to say is “THE FUNK” comes in many forms and guises.
I think Window Licker is a seriously funky track.
I very much appreciate your strangeness
123alastairj and I would gladly take you to see George Clinton if he plays the UK again… if you’ll do me the honour… and that’s a promise!
But just to be getting on with! :kissing_smiling_eyes:



Fredugolon 6


kinda has some AFX-like / Jons Hopkins / Jackson + your computer vibe going on…



Jam :sunglasses:


There’s some fucking demented production on the new Charli XCX record, especially this closing track. Popheads should check out the whole thing, it’s actually amazing. Features from Carly Rae Jepsen, Tommy Cash and Mykki Blanco.




A lot of digital cumbia, like Barrio Lindo, Chancha via circuito, Dengue Dengue Dengue, El Remolon, Nicola Cruz, last album I discovered : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0fkTAec0ks
