Weekend Groove - Funkagenda Mix - Live Sunset

I've been listening to a lot of funk, break beats and chillout these days, but sometimes I gotta rock the minimal house/techno. This mix, by UK DJ, DJ technician and producer Funkagenda is on the electronic side of downtempo and chill. "Live Sunset," the name of the mix, says it all - I feel like I'm poolside at sunset while listening to the slow build of this mix, and the second the sun goes down, the downtempo house sounds come out.

The mix is a massive, mesmerizing 2 and a half hours. The first hour is pure chillout - ambient vibes to bask to; the second hour turns into a downtempo dance party - perfect for some natural energy for your weekend groove. by Funkagenda

Champagne Lounge Deluxe - Eddie Silverton, Don Imuze, Minus Blue, more

Jeff Bennett and his Phunctional Loungin label have released a compilation featuring tracks from Volumes 1-5 of the Champagne Lounge series, plus a bonus 2-hour continuous mix of all the tracks.

The compilation features Jeff's alias' - Eddie Silverton, the ultra-lounge alter ego, and Don Imuze, the electro-dub doppleganger - plus artists from the Phunctional Loungin label.

I've really enjoyed listening to Eddie Silverton and a new artist, Minus Blue, a UK based lounge artist that features mellow melodies with whimsical and siren-esque female vocals. You can listen to samples of Eddie and Minus Blue tracks below.

The compilation was released this week exclusively on Beatport and will be in wide release on Feb 16, 2010. Listen below and enjoy!

Sunday Groove - Jaymystic Downtempo Mix

In the spirit of a chill Sunday, Jaymystic makes a downtempo groove available via his website. Its "deep dubby" and overall quite chill, with a lot of head noddin' sounds that range from ethereal ambient layered over breaks to dubby hip hop beats and vocals filtered through all sorts of other-worldly effects. Click the link or pic to listen to the mix. You can also download it here. And btw, I found Jaymystic in the forums - lots of great music and artists to be found there.
