nuFF003 announced! manscape! Tool EP!

Dear Friends of The Funk, 

we are very pleased to present you the third release on our little NuFunk label nuFunkFiles.
This time it's not just mijkfunk alone: I teamed up with Joshua Kirkby aka DJ Box from Sydney, a long time friend and true ambassador of the Funk in his hometown.
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, 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!

motherfunk #17

motherfunk with a feature on The Original 7ven. We all loved them as the antagonists of Prince in the movie "Purple Rain" in the challenge for the coolest band in town.
Too bad, that in real life the purple one owns the trademark at "The Time". So now they are called The Original 7ven and released their great album "Condensate". Mijk van Dijk introduces the album and plays some tracks.
Of course there can't be missing a tribute to the late great Whitney Houston, who sadly passed away on February 11th 2012. And a lot of NuFunk from the likes of Lorenz Rhode, Tad Willy, Munk, Soul Clap, Sample Jack, Le Crayon and Kolombo. Also introducing Manscape, Mijk's new forthcoming release on nuFunkFiles.
Listen to it on, Tuesday March 13 at 8pm CET, Wednesday March 14 at 9 pm CET, Sunday, March 18 at 10 pm CET.
Boogie down, funksters!
