UK Funky Steppas

UKFUNKYBBQ

Something for the weather (finally): UK funky, new-step(?) with some 2step and ardkore-era numbers thrown in.

I initially intended this one to be 100% smiley and sunshiny, until I realised I simply don’t have enough tunes that don’t have at least a hint of darkness or sadness. Still, it’s got plenty of sexy and raucous moments. Click the pic to download or listen via Mixcloud link below:

For any snobs and purists: yes, again this was done with Ableton Live; I don’t have the right space to set up two decks and don’t have a good mixer anyway. I did pay money for these records (not the Sticky one, which isn’t available as a record to my knowledge). Plus, I like Ableton.
