Throwback: XL Middleton “Take Me To LA” (feat. Reality Jonez)

I just love doing “cynical” LA songs. LA is my home, and home wouldn’t be home without having something of a love-hate relationship with it (the love winning out in the end, of course). Also, it’s a bit of a tribute to my favorite old school rapper, Slick Rick.

From “The Hedonistic Mixtape” (2011).

New Music: Diamond Ortiz “Zooted”

Here’s a preview of our next MoFunk Records release, “Zooted” from our homie Diamond Ortiz. 45/digital dropping next month. Official press release:

Diamond Ortiz from the Bay brings you a brand new bounce on MoFunk Records. 7″ vinyl and digital download coming soon. “I’m feelin’ zooted, batteries included….” Super freaky and extra geeky, this New Skool Party Funk is a feel good dancefloor jam from the mind of J. Diamond-Ortiz. This track’s bass, synths, clean guitars, banging drums, and crisp vocoder will get you feeling Zooted too.

Video – Moniquea “I Don’t Wanna Get Used To It (Diamond Ortiz Remix)”

Diamond Ortiz just hit us with a fresh visual of compiled performance footage plus lowriders in cruise mode for his remix to Moniquea’s “I Don’t Wanna Get Used To It.” It’s the b-side to “A Certain Way,” which we just released the video to last month. And you can get both joints on 45 (or digital) by hitting the widget below.
