And I thought August was supposed to be a slack month for music. You know how it is – artists and the public alike off at festivals indulging in free love and expensive drugs (if not expensive love and free drugs) and nobody seeing any point in releasing anything until September restores sanity. Apparently not this August though for Manmade deliver volume 6 of their ongoing Feature Funk series and its another good-time, floor-filling package of bootlegs from the cheesier end of the nu-funk spectrum. What you get is hands-in-the-air, big-club breakbeat restylings of Hit The Road Jack, The Velvelettes He Was Really Saying Something, a very cheeky use of The Mohawks Beat Me Til I’m Blue by CMC & Silenta plus a frankly Brie-tinged (or similarly aromatic Lithuanian equivalent) appropriation of Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water. Press guff below links…
Listen to Manmade Feature Funk Volume 6

(PRESS RELEASE) Here we go again…..
Manmade Feature Funk Vol 6 is about to hit ya’ll, expect one of the best Manmade releases so far! 5 banging tracks with different styles and tempo, but they all have some things in common: They’re big, fat, funky and a guarantee to move the party people’s butts.
It starts off with CMC&Silenta’s “Chainsaw Massacre”, a track with elements of 9 tracks, added with own beats, chords and synths and their own way of mashing it all together to a straight cracker. Tom Drummond from down under shows his production skillz again with “Hit it”. He fires a dance floor rocket for all b-boys and NuFunk lovers! Next one is Moodbase from Lithuania with “Put Ya Handz Up”. There’s one appropriate word to describe this crowd-rocking and club devastating bomb: BOOOOM! DUCK DOWN! On the next side we’re happy to feature Spain’s No.1 Breakbeat/Big Beat combo Telephunken. “He Was Really Saying Something” is one of the tracks of their amazing album the guys released 2009, be sure to check that great masterpiece on Juno. Itunes etc..! We decided to give you a bonus track an mm009, a masterpiece of a slow down Hiphop groove perfectly made for a day on the beach like the name said “It’s a beautiful day”. Have fun with Manmade’s new baby and grab a piece of vinyl before they’re all gone!
