DJ Format-Psych Out-LP *Full Stream

BBE Music sais:

DJ Format’s Psych Out is a compilation of records from around the world that Format WISHES he could play at clubs every weekend. Some of the tracks are hard to categories …kind of psychedelic, kind of funky, kind of crazy…but most have unmistakable blend of distorted electric guitars, driving basslines and pounding drums. Maybe you didn’t think it was possible for “Foxy Lady” to be played any harder…but 49th Blue Streak did it. “Hava Nagila” never really seemed likely to lend itself to a psychedelic reworking…but The Quests from Singapore thought differently. In Germany, The CT Four Plus did away with boring tradition and instead praised God with their electric guitars. Advertising executives in France thought it best to spread the word of their new chocolate bar by commissioning the Bana Pop Band to make a cool 7″ flexi disc record. These are just a few examples of how the boundaries of music were being pushed in the late ’60s & early ’70s when most of these exciting recordings were made.

DJ Format-Psych Out-Mix

DJ Format sais:

The idea for this compilation came about because of my search for a rare psych/funk 7″ that isn’t even included here! My friend DJ Oneofakind played me the said record and I totally lost my mind. Some months later after a lot of asking around and searching online, a copy turned up on Discogs.com for a painful amount of money. I contacted the seller to ask a couple of questions and it turned out I was talking to Jake Holloway, BBE’s in-house designer. I’d loosely known Jake for a few years through mutual friends so we quickly arranged a time to meet and take care of business. Jake told me he’d offered the 7″ to a few other DJ/collector friends but they’d passed on it as it was ‘too heavy’ for them. This got us talking about my love for psych records with a funky slant and I explained my frustration at buying so many records that fit that description, that were ‘too heavy’ to play at my typical DJ gigs. Jake had the perfect solution: “why don’t you do a compilation of funky, fuzzed-out psych stuff for BBE?
Psych Out is released June 10th on Vinyl, CD and digital.

DJ Prestige-Psychological Effects of Beats & Other Drums-Mix

Flea Market Funk sais:

For a long time, we’ve been into beat tapes and instrumental beat mixes. As our record pile grows bigger, we’ve been holding on to a bunch of off center, beat oriented records for a mix. So here’s an impromptu, all live, one take mix of some of those records. What are the psychological effects of beats and other drums on your mind? Possibly combined with external factors or just normal listening, we’re fascinated on how music makes one feel. The common thread that these tracks have is the drum. Whether it’s instrumental hip hop, early electronic pioneers, present day prog rock, future bass, turntablism, original soundtracks, free jazz, and beyond, the common thread in each of these records is the drum. Each one of these artists uses the drum in their own, unique way. So sit back, relax, put your headphones on and take a trip and feel the effects of the drum. If you dig, please feel free to pass on to a friend.
