Manscape – Tool EP – nuFunkFiles 003

Manscape – Tool EP – nuFunkFiles 003

On a hot summer day, Mijk van Dijk and long-term friend Joshua Kirkby from Sydney sat down in Mijk’s studio in Berlin and created „Tool“, a slow boogie burner, that Mijk has been road-testing ever since in his NuFunk DJ sets. It was clear that this little gem had to be released on nuFunkFIles. Their original recording is based around a funky keyboard break sitting tight on a slow and phunky 109 bpm groove. Yes, it’s really that slow, the groove is just so uplifting, it feels much faster. And yes, it’s the boys working the mic as well. Mijk wanted to create a faster variation based on the sound of his boogie monsters „Funkit“ and „To The Groove“ of his „Kids Want Revolution“-EP (nuFF002) and recorded a 117 bpm corker featuring his already iconic trademark boogie bass sound. And while on it, he also pushed the variations a bit further by remixing a wonderfully relaxed Balearic version as well as a Tool Tool that lives up to the name of the track also in the purpose. Mijk is spreading the word and sound of NuFunk in Berlin through his radio show „Motherfunk“ on BLN.fm, his resident night „Funkit“ at Delicious Doughnuts and his DJ sets as mijkfunk. Down under in Sydney Joshua is a missionary of the Boogie under the name DJ Box. After recruiting his local record store (SPANK Records) staffer Matthew Cowley to “do something a little different” the Matthew Cowley Remix was born. A deep Tech House melancholic dense little builder of a track – It’s a fine addition to this EP and we are proud to have Matt on board. Despite living on opposite sides of the planet, Mijk and Joshua share their love for The Funk with the help of the social media network, celebrating every new discovery in the still young galaxy of NuFunk/ FutureBoogie/ or whatever you may wanna call it. We hope you dig our third release on nuFunkFiles and play it, chart it, talk about it. Boogie down, funksters! nuFF003 out on 09.04.2012 on Beatport and other download stores. More info on Discogs. Tracklisting: 1.Tool (Original) 2.Tool (Mijkfunk Boogie Remix) 3.Tool (Mijkfunk Balearic Remix) 4.Tool (Mijkfunk Boogie Tool) 5.Tool (Matthew Cowley Remix) Selected DJ Feedback: Eli Goldstein (Soul Clap): hey guys really nice instrumentals. you really re-create that boogie sound. please send 🙂 Ian Pooley: “Massive feelgood Track from Mijk , will be included on my Summer 2pm DJ Mix !” Pitchben (Compost): “great EP, love the vintage touch and synths – really dig the Mijkfunk Boogie Remix!” Michael Reinboth (Compost): „ Excellent nu boogie electro , like it.“ Opolopo (Tokyo Dawn Records): Nice boogie bangers – I’m bringing out my Jane Fonda videos for this! 😉 Munk (Gomma): coooool.

The Oakland Occupy Movement

The Oakland Occupy Movement

We received word from Oakland/ California. The city’s occupy movement celebrates their stand for freedom and justice to the sound of mijkfunk’s “Kids Want Revolution”. We are glad that this song inspires people to fight for their rights. FunKills1969 left some amazing comments to the mijkfunk video. Check the documentary video below at 5:28 min. This video is also delivers great footage of the peaceful spirit of the Oakland protesters and the police fighting the crowd with teargas, rubber bullets, explosives and brute physical force. Big ups to Oakland, keep on doing what you’re doing! Daniel Levesque left this comment on the original post in the nufunkfiles blog: Thank you for posting. We love you, Berlin! We love your song. In the video you can see how the police start the riot, like always, acting like pigs. Right now we are going through growing pains. There is a huge divide inside the movement, which I believe to be a natural part of its evolution. Occupy Wall Street probably wishes Oakland would drop off the map, or at least stop using the name :occupy: (which would be fine with me. I don’t like the name “occupy”; it is the very language used by our oppressors. I’d rather decolonize than occupy…)Tonight, and every Saturday, is another militant march on the oakland police. (I dont go to the Fuck The Police specific marches because I cannot be arrested.) And while I personally don’t like to ape the police and fight them using their own tactics, I’m not against others doing autonomous actions. I’m all for it, actually. I just want them to plan the actions better so they don’t get hurt. In the video, you see the police firing rounds into a crowd of people at random, a crowd that included a bunch of children, old folks, etc. The Oakland police have a TANK. A fuckin’ TANK. And they want to use it more than they want another donut. Let’s be careful out there, and never give up. Peace and solidarity from Oakland. The Kids Want Revolution. That’s for...
