Found this mix last night at the Waxpoetics site and thought you'd all enjoy. One of these days I'm going to make a mix as smooth as this one. Description below.
DJ's Optimus and Mace, known as OptiMace and both initiators of Dutch recordlabel Fremdtunes, put together a mix for Wax Poetics: reflecting the label's flavor with a soulful, funky, electronic and beat-heavy trip. The label's main focus is on (instrumental) producer-based music, from triphop to dub to rare groove to hiphop. From funkjazz and skweee to electro and turntablism. Danceable music with beats that move both the crowd and critics. Just recently DJ Optimus released his debut CD 'Double Helix DNA' on Fremdtunes. His album contains hip hop beats rich with jazz, boombap and funk influences, turntablism, electronics and a whole squadron of guests, including Rasco, Prince Po, iET, MC Rise, Maylay Sparks, Mo & Grazz and El Da Sensei. Earlier, Mace and Optimus released as OptiMace the EP 'Used Future' on 12”. Other releases by Fremdtunes include music by Kelpe, DJ Devastate, Solo Moderna, Coco Bryce, Fremdkunst, Jameszoo, Pierce Warnecke and Kid Sundance.
