yeah that one's another masterpiece
like you assume it's only doing one thing, that it's looping somewhere, but there's just constant mindboggling everything going on simultaneously
especially of late their stuff feels so uniquely alive and organic and careering around wildly but somehow never quite losing control

Spot on. The backseat breakdown is ridic. I like how their increasingly staged production style has all these little resemblances to but difference from ill blu. Ill Blu use breakdowns to push the tune higher, but for funkystepz the breakdown is the moment when the tune eats itself.

Also "Best Damn Night" is AMAZING.
Those youtube clips also remind me of how much I love the use of the booka shade stagger trance riffs on "Heaven".

Some hot new Funkystepz tunes on this Smoove Kriminal / Maxsin Funkystepz set:
"Class A" is super compulsive. "Royal Rumble" is actually insane, like someone should slap them for the cheek of it. Dead center between "Warrior", the Jim Screecha remix and a computer having an epileptic fit. "Fizzy" is yr typical jittery funkystepz party vibes only with added percussive hi-jinx.
These dudes really do have too many killer tracks.

^ Tim where did you get the tracklist for that? Is it on the Deja site? Some great Funkystepz bits that I hadn't heard before on there anyway. Actually the show as a whole had a lot going for it I think - I remember last year really enjoying Smoove Kriminal's shows, but in the last few months I've found it hard to listen to them because long stretches of them just seem very dull to me. This felt more like... maybe not a full return to form but def a step back in the right direction.

yeah, i was in the same boat and i agree the sets are sounding pretty good right now. guess it's just the serendipity of funky moving more in smoove's general direction this year but with him uninterested in the deep moody boring set building that marcus does so it stays light

Ha, I just figured out that "You Got It" samples Juan Maclean's "One Day". The origin of that riff had been bugging me.

Kind of hate saying this, but this mix along with a couple of other select bits and pieces is basically keeping the flame of UKF alive for me right now.

― r|t|c, Thursday, 20 October 2011 00:18 (1 year ago) Permalink
They can't mix for shit on this one but it hardly matters when the tracks are this good.
That Petchy mix and this are keeping me going with the funky at the mo.
I'd almost thought Petchy had died or something.

― jimitheexploder, Thursday, 20 October 2011 18:50 (1 year ago) Permalink
they've never acted like mixing was the slightest part of their game tbf.
idk if i can really claim that petchy set is worth putting up with that tosser at the start for, really basic and dare i say halfhearted selection. petch doesnt care about funky at all.

The best thing about the Petchy set is Shantie's new rhymes.
Downloading the Funkystepz now.
― Tim F, Thursday, 20 October 2011 20:02 (1 year ago) Permalink
I was disapointed Petchy kinda fell off and went all regular house, when he spins the funky bits he still has a good vibe going though. Plus his MCs are the best when it comes to riding funky for me. No idea why he just kinda dropped off like that.
The Funkystepz mix from Boiler Room yp thread prob... he sounded a lot tighter in the mix.
I'm feeling that last track too, can't place it right now though.
― jimitheexploder, Thursday, 20 October 2011 20:03 (1 year ago) Permalink
Hehe there's a few shaky moments in the Funkystepz mix for sure.I kind of agree that the MCs are the main strength of the Petchy set and that tune-wise it only really comes alive for the last few.
