NEW SINGLE ALERT: The Funk Hunters & DiRTY RADiO “Turn Down the Silence”

It is about time that we welcomed in some new blood to the MiR familia. Keeping your weekend pumping we have “Turn Down the Silence”, the first single from The Funk Hunters over on Westwood Recordings. The track is The Funk Hunters’ first single off of their upcoming album Typecast, that will be available for release on March 23rd. Created after the two brains behind the project, Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith, met in Canada while attending film school; The Funk Hunters has been a forward-thinking monster in terms of production quality. With influences in hip-hop, classic soul, and funk, we can’t wait to see what the rest of Typecast will sound like in March.

If “Turn Down the Silence” is an example of what the rest of Typecast is going to offer, then we are sold. Assisted by DiRTY RADiO, The Funk Hunters created the next earworm of 2018. DiRTY RADiO contributes plenty of silky and sultry vocal work, with The Funk Hunters adding plenty of enticing melodies as well as a bassline filled to the brim with a groove that you must be sick if you can’t casually groove along. Telling the story of a beautiful summer romance bubbling just under the surface, “Turn Down the Silence” will captivate you until the very end.

Make sure you give “Turn Down the Silence” a full listen below!

Luca Testa & KOM Are Back with “Balenciaga”

It’s Been four months Luca Testa, you better bring us something delicious. For the first release to fill up your weekend we have Panda Funk’s latest with “Balenciaga” by talented producer Luca Testa. Panda Funk is known to be more like a movement than a record label, and the brains behind the operation try to showcase as much diversity in their talent pool as possible. Luca Testa is a prime example of this dynamic style, as he is widely considered to be one of the best upcoming artists on the Italian scene. Testa’s previous work as nailed him support from powerhouses such as Hardwell and Dimitri Vegas.

With “Balenciaga”, Testa is taking it back with some old school electro and house grooves that will make any electronic fan feel nostalgic. The beat is a dancefloor banger, while not overtly poppy and upbeat. The track inhabits the other end of the spectrum by being gritty and finding its sound in a mechanical world. Just add the wobbly synths on top of the cake, and you have a track that could bust out even your inner rhythm.

Make sure you give “Balenciaga” a full listen below:

We Are Getting “Hot” Again For Full Crate’s New Music Video!

We at MiR always like it when we have an odd collaboration that emits solid gold. This mid-work week we have “Hot”, the latest collaboration between Full Crate, duo The Partysquad, and Nick & Navi. Both known for their production diversity, The Partysquad and Full Crate have been absolutely killing it throughout 2017. The Partysquad has been smashing with hits like “Original Don” and “Double Bubble” with superstars Major Lazer and M.I.A. respectively. On the flip side, Full Crate has been expanding his production catalog with everything from soul to deep house tracks.

Unlike what have we heard recently, “Hot” is quite unique in its distinct influences. The track is pure gold, even though it is all across the map. “Hot” has a prominent jungle beat with a Jamaican dancehall vibe, but manages to also be soulful and sultry do to duo Nick & Navi’s premiere vocal work. Fun fact, “Hot” was originally created as a dance floor busting instrumental known as “Big Booty Problem”. Eager to elevate the track, Full Crate tapped fellow Amsterdamers The Partysquad to transform the track entirely.

UPDATE: Now, nearly a full month after the track’s release, we finally have a music video for “Hot”. Shot by Full Crate herself, most of the filming and principal photography was completed in Curacao. The video, while simple in production terms, showcases a unique style and blends quite well with the original artist’s track. It better, since she directed it and made final creative decisions.

Be sure to check out the official music video here:
