Funky House Finesse 7 & Michael Jackson Tribute

We return to the airwaves with another two hours of funky house delights, this week with a mix of new and old.
After the passing of the legend last week, we honour Michael Jackson for the last hour of this week’s show with a special hour mix of the finest remixes with a funky house vibe over the last 15 years. Expect to hear all the classics remixed by a whole host of producers through the years, including the Freemasons, Frankie Knuckles, Junior Vasquez, Masters At Work, Tony Moran and even a cheeky Daft Punk mashup.
We kick the show off though with another fine production from our favourite Australian artist Rachel Claudio, followed up with some sexy, uplifting soulful house tunes. Unfortunately, we don’t have time for any Disco Tech tunes this week but don’t worry – we’ll catch up in two weeks time.
Our favourite voiceover Ben Day returns this week too after his Summer break. We got mixed reactions to Si’s attempt at covering so we’ll leave the talking to the pro’s.
With all that said and done, make sure you leave some feedback on the mix, especially the MJ Tribute mix. It would be great to know what you thought of the feature.

    What is to be said first seeing Michael jackson thought OH NO!! but its a way with OPDJ spin it just works brilliantly
    Shame latest mixes too long for CD burn for use in car, not yet arrived at mp3 capability maybe next company car will resolve

    It did pass my mind that some people would think I was “cashing in” on Michael Jackson’s passing but I genuinely wanted to send a tribute to the man after all he had given the world musically. He was a huge inspiration to me when I was younger, I was always playing his albums on loop. If only existed back then, MJ would certainly be at the top of my charts.
    I’m glad you enjoyed the mix anyway. I was keen to only play the tunes that fitted into my DJing style, with the piano loops and funky hooks. I hope that came across in the mix.
