Funky House Finesse 48

It’s another month with another celebration of beautiful house on the horizon – the Southport Weekender in the UK. Always a hive of excitement with an eclectic range of soulful, funky and disco house to entertain the weekend campers. With that in mind, the first part of the show is dedicated to the endless parties up in Minehead from 11-13th May.

We kick start the show with an elegant reprise of the Boris Dlugosch & Roisin Murphy classic “Never Enough” which takes us into a number of soulful beauties followed by a jackin’ disco-fuelled session, wrapped up with some twisted bootlegs and Chocolate Puma’s amazing remix of Ben Westbeech’s “Same Thing”.

Make sure you send us your feedback – your favourite tracks, any questionable inclusions, whatever – we love to hear back from you. Even a simple Facebook “like” will suffice.

Funky House Finesse 37

First off, apologies for the delay in releasing the next show. We’ve had some unexpected issues hosting the podcast so took a sabattical to work out a solution. We’ve found a suitable partner in Lib Syn (recommended by the Triple Dee guys) who know exactly what we want but bear with us while we iron out any teething issues.

With that said,  let’s get on with another two hours of uplifting, funky house tunes that’s been gracing our ears for the last few weeks.We’ve got a fantastic collection of new music for you this month from some of our good friends around the house scene.

Ex-Bassmonkey Danny “Gadgetman” Bond has sent us his first commercial funky-breakbeat remix of the emerging pop act PDG v AnniemouseCan’t Stop The Boogie“. We wish him luck on his new solo adventure but know, for sure, he’s destined for big things.

(Speaking of the Bassmonkeys, a little bird tells us they’ve been working with Finesse sweetheart Bonnie Bailey on an amazing new remix due for release soon. We’ve been promised an advance play on this when it’s available so stay tuned for more.)

We’ve also got an exclusive early listen to a remix of Jidax & Chynna BluePower Of Love” by David Dunne and Andy Daniels, otherwise known as Triple Dee (be sure to check out their weekly show/podcast for plenty of funky house and cheeky banter).

Regular label Hed Kandi also have several compilations out at the moment, including the regularly played “Back To Disco” and “Live Sydney 2011”. We’ve selected a couple of our favourite tracks from each including Jay C & Oliver Lang‘s “It Doesn’t Matter” and Jay Santi‘s amazing remix of Candi Staton‘s “When You Wake Up Tomorrow“.

Loleatta Holloway‘s unfortunate passing last month is still close to our heart and we didn’t really get to dedicate much to her last time round so this month sees a couple more tracks by the disco queen, including Hott 22‘s remix of “Stand Up” and the banging Satoshi Tomiie remix of “Dreamin’“. Expect more over from the lady over the coming months though – Loleatta is deeply missed, leaving an absolute legacy behind. Rest in peace.
