Funky Friday Four Pack

The Rakes - 22 Grand Job (Filthy Dukes Society Remix)
From a great little 5 track EP on Dim Mak called Remixes, this one sees one of the great tunes from the lads' debut given a fab squelchy disco makeover. Full of lovely squiggles, and that accent gets me every time. New album forthcoming this Spring.

Goldfrapp - Ride A White Horse (Ewan Pearson Disco Odyssey Parts 1&2)
Ewan's mix takes you on a 15 minute trip of blissed out electro-disco, complete with killer breakdown around the 7 minute mark.

Go Home Productions - Notorious Trick - (Duran Duran vs. Kelis)
Duran Duran's Notorious, which was produced by Nile Rodgers, versus Kelis' Trick Me, which was produced by Dallas Austin, who went on to produce part of Duran's comeback album a couple of years ago. These two work very well together, no?

Go Home Productions - Absolutely Love You (Scritti Politti vs. Justin Timberlake)
A few weeks ago on some mash up post Ion commented about this Scritti vs. Justin mashup. Now, thanks to Ion we can all enjoy this bootie that pits the classic white funk groove of Scritti's Absolute with Justin's Like I Love You. The bit where the rap is mashed up over the chime-y break is brilliant.
