The Chairmann shuffle is a new segment devoted to old music. I’ve been in the midst of an epic music library reorganization and have been digging through all kinds of tracks from my infancy as a DJ. A lot of the stuff I used to love is downright shameful but I’ve also found some gems that I can’t believe I forgot about.
Tellier’s “Look” is a low BPM affair featuring 80s style synths and sultry French vocals. Haunting and beautiful. One of the most hyptonizing combinations of audio/visual stimulation I’ve ever encountered. Full track below.
Madeon has been on (for him at least) a production tear recently. First Icarus, and now with this phenomenal remix of The Night Out by Martin Solveig, it’s clear that 2012 is going to be a HUGE year for Hugo. Having already notched his first Ultra, and with Coachella fast approaching, this child of ’94 is poised to take one of the top spots in the dance music scene before he even turns 18. Now a little more about the song: the bass is a little heavier than what is typical in his productions, but it’s definitely a sound I’d like to see more of from him as his style continues to evolve. My only regret is that I did not have this post ready before the weekend…
Just stumbled on these two dudes from Wales and Holland that go by the name Televisor and they.. guitar. good. The staggering amount of joyfulness flowing out of “Stand-up” simply incapacitates my working English. Hit them up on facebook and soundcloud cause their numbers don’t reflect how great they are.

And now for some of that deep minimal soul bass. This tune is close to my heart.[audio https://funkytownismyhood.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/fat_freddys_drop-cays_crays__digital_mystikz_remix_.mp3]
Funk Ferret has been on my list of artists to write about for a while and with the release of his last mix I couldn’t put it off any longer. First heard his work through his edit of “If You Want Me to Stay” by Sly and the Family Stone. It’s a minimal update that doesn’t try to fuck with the awesomeness of the original song, something I typically look down upon but he pulled off masterfully. He also happens to be the first artist that I’ve ever paid attention to from New Zealand. Add it to your list of accolades, Funk Ferret 🙂
