What is funk to you? First things that comes to mind for me is some old school disco. My post today features some big room sounds, something I don’t usually include in my definition of funk, but I can’t help but consider these sounds funky as hell. Each one leaves me dancing no matter if I’m driving in the car, sitting at my desk or jamming with my friends.

Nicky Romero

Preview overload today. Nicky Romero, creator of Protocol Recordings, and NERVO released their new progressive house collaboration “Like Home” about a month ago and it’s received quite the attention from on Beatport. Twins, Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo, and Nicky Romero make quite the team and definitely aren’t sore on the eyes. “Like Home” is a progressive track, but it only takes a little over a minute for the beat to drop, teaching listeners that progressive doesn’t have to be as slow to start as it’s made to seem. The three young foreigners enlisted the help of a few friends to put spins on the track including big names like Dillon Francis, Dannic, and Gregor Salto. While they are only all previews right now, you can still get a feel for each track. All three are big room sounds that take Nicky Romero’s signature progressive sounds and NERVO’s vocals to a new, fresh level. Just in time for the holidays, the remixes will be available Dec 17 on Beatport.

Krewella

From the Facebook updates late last night, I can say that Krewella was “Killing It” last night in SF with Borgore and K Theory. The trio has recently released a new EP titled Play Harder featuring 9 remixes of their heavy-hitting EP Play Hard. The “Alive” remix that comes close to my love for the original is the Cash Cash x DJ Kalkutta Remix which moved it towards a more electro house feel. Along with all the remixes, Krewella also released “Come & Get It,” a typical poppy Krewella hit that also includes some drum n bass. By no means would I consider it legit drum n bass though, don’t get me wrong.

Wanna know what it’s like to be part of Krewella? Check out their video that takes a sneak peak at what they do when they aren’t rocking out on stage.

Are you a Breaking Bad fan? If so, you will dig the opening sample in ill.Gates’s “I’m Eel.” That is not the only sample MYN fans will recognize. With Snowglobe only a couple weeks away, I’m really hoping that this funny little side project is featured in ill.Gates’s set on New Year’s Eve.
