Perfect for the Christmas and New Year’s parties ahead! Hope you dig this selection and if you need more grooves, check out the monthly playlist with 50+ tracks.
If you like the grooves I share, I’d love for you to tell just one friend about Groovilant. That keeps me going 🙏🏼
Pretty Sister – My Jam
Placed this as the first track in the selection for a reason; such a quality funk track from Pretty Sister which is part of his Z-Funk Era EP which I covered in November. Definitely check it all out, really amazing quality!
Whethan & Oliver Tree – All You Ever Talk About (Whereisalex Remix)
Yo, this is soo catchy. Short and sweet but a serious earworm. Once the track takes off with the trumpets, this one can’t be stopped (well, until the tracks stops of course… but you know).
Jerry Folk – A Disco Edit
Could just as well be with the 13 disco & funk tracks I’ve picked here, but this amazing, uptempo disco groove is made for parties for sure. Jerry Folk is just a straight-up superb producer. Hope to feature several of his best tracks once the podcast is up and running.
Haywyre – Tell Me
Haywyre is huge favourite on the electro funk / nu disco scene. His skills on keys are insane. In November he finally released a new EP after the two and four year old volumes of the EP ‘Two Fold’. Check out the whole new EP here, but also listen to ‘Everchanging’ from 2014 which is still one of my favourite electronic tracks of all time.
Pat Lok – Know Me (feat. Kate Stewart)
Pat Lok makes some of the best danceable house grooves out there, no doubt about it. His new with Kate Stewart is wonderful. Definitely check out his Instagram where he shares some cool behind the scenes stuff. Out on all platforms here.
The Funk Hunters – Hands Up (Raise Your Fist) (feat. Leo Napier) (Jenaux Remix)
Long af song title, haha. Anyway, covered Jenaux’ mixtape last month, which includes some amazing unreleased gems. This remix of The Funk Hunters should underline that 2019 will be another year we need to watch him close. Get the track on all platforms here.
GRiZ It Gets Better (feat. DRAM)
GRiZ is one of my absolutely favourites persons within the electro funk/soul genres. After a long time away from social media and music in general, he’s now back with a couple of dope tracks. This one is my favourite and I hope for something similar in 2019!
Rich Boy – Throw Some D’s (junior state remix)
Just discovered Junior State, and will definitely keep and eye out them (him/her?) if the quality stays like this. Check their new album on Spotify and Apple music here.
Dirty Radio X Giuliano Rascan – Is It Enough
Dirty Radio is a bit like Pat Lok when it comes to making amazing groovy house tunes. They just provide the vocals themselves on top; amazing duo to definitely check out! An album is on the way.
Break Science – Anthemy Mason (Late Night Radio Remix)
Also covered on the blog last month, this Late Night Radio remix of the two year old Break Science and Brasstracks original is fantastic – bouncy and groovy at the same time.
Kraak & Smaak – I’ll be Loving You (feat. IVAR) (Roman Kouder Remix)
The Frenchman is turning in to the fantastic producer I hoped he would 4-5 years ago, when I heard him the first time. Amazing remix of the legends Kraak & Smaak. He’s produced with Patawawa before as well, a band I’ve also featured in the 13 disco & funk tracks from November. Check out the remix package here.
Father Funk & TWOGOOD – Be Funky
Father Funk is a ghetto funk producer I’ve enjoyed for years now thanks to fantastic contributions to the genre. It’s a tough genre to go a long way with, I think, but he’s done so well. With the duo TWO GOOD this tracks hits the party spot right-on. Get it here.
Exmag – In This (Feat. Ehiorobo)
The Lowtemp band has been a little off my radar for some years now, but this track is really great and super groovy. I remember their first album, ‘Proportions’, which blew my mind when released in 2013; I think maybe Gramatik was also producing some tracks on it? Personally, they haven’t kept the quality as high since then, but this track is coming close.
Happy holidays fellas, have a good one.
