No turntables? Not at the release show last month in Shanghai where you could have gotten a copy of the vinyl? Or just curious what these 2 new AM444 tracks sound like? Here you go:

Been a while. Summer and all, you know? Back with another free download though for all u dj’s and bedroom rumpshakers.
Missy Elliott’s Pass That Dutch blended with 80’s boogie funk classic “Midas Touch” by Midnight Star. Play loud and enjoy. 320Kbps mp3.
OK. This may be a little confusing. Last year i heard the DJ Ayres edit (available on It’s The MF Remix vol. 3) of the “Unplugged” funk version by a group called Breakout of Afrika Bambaataa’s & The Soulsonic Force‘s all-time classic song Planet Rock (which in turn samples heavily from German electro pioneers Kraftwerk‘s track Trans-Europe Express).
Confused yet? Well, I spent Friday afternoon rearranging this DJ Ayres edit version even further and added some percussion, drums and 808 kicks.
So here it is. With an impossibly long title. But dancefloor ready.. Enjoy.

If you’re anywhere near Shanghai, come check my good friend Rich Medina gracing the decks at The Shelter this Friday. For those that don’t know, Rich is one of the world’s top dj’s when it comes to playing a mix of funk & soul, afrobeat, hip-hop, deep house and more.
Among many other things: he’s been holding down a 8 year weekly (yes, that is WEEKLY) residence at New York’s hotspot APT (Lil Ricky’s Ribshack), did a weekly party with none other than Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip over the past year and is the mastermind behind the hugely popular Jump ‘n’ Funk Afrobeat parties in NYC and beyond. He’s also travelled to most corners of the world to lay his funk on the masses. Oh and he’s a spoken word artist and producer too.
Support by The Lab dj’s and yours truly.
