Drumfunk mixes

Over the past decade, I’ve occasionally put together mixes of tunes I particularly enjoy listening to, and stick them on the net. (Why not.)

A somewhat ad hoc series I called ‘Gunpowder Funk’ arose from a Drumfunk/choppage/darkbeat mix I did back in 2005. I ended up doing annually for the next three years, culminating in Gunpowder Funk Part 4.

I really like the track selection and the mixing on this (conceited? possibly! but I did all these mixes live, no pre-planning except picking the tracks I wanted to play and putting them in a pile by the decks), there’s a lot of serendipitous moments and lovely track blends going on.

Other mixes (including Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) are available online (their tracklistings are embedded in the ID3 comment tag, or available online if you search). (There’s also a Bad Company mix (tracks from the Shot Down on Safari album, as the mix which came with the album was so bad), a Current Value mix and an all-classics mix if you’re feeling adventurous.)
