GTD presents Modern Funkatron with BMB aka WayneTweed (RU) LIVE @ mbar 24.3. DON'T MISS!

On Saturday the 24th of March, Modern Funkatron by Gimme The Dance brings Beat-Maker-Beat LIVE from St. Petersburg to truly kick off modern funk at mbar.

With the help of music related social media, modern funk has rapidly become a global movement. While the scene is still taking its baby steps, producers capable of causing major head-nodding pop up from all corners of the world. From the heritage of hiphop, this new breed of producers mold together pieces of 80's boogie, electrofunk and P-funk with electronic hiphop aesthetics, occasionally even crossing the borderlines of dubstep and house. With modern funk's 'post-Dilla'-era producers, the spotlight on the scene is, now more than ever, on the musicians - the Beat-Makers.

LIVE: BEAT-MAKER-BEAT aka WAYNE TWEED (RU)
Beat-Maker-Beat aka WayneTweed alias Space Kid - the man has many disguises, each with different vibe but all sharing one thing in common - they mean beats with fresh analog sounds and cosmic otherworldly quality. One of the key figures of the modern funk sound, the young producer BMB beats his Akai MPC in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he’s no newcomer to the local hiphop scene. Living the true hiphop lifestyle, he started breaking at the early age of 10 and soon after, regardless of his young age, was already spinning records at local clubs and gained awards both in MC and DJ battles in Russia. Nowadays, however, he is world known for his superior beat-making skills and has been heard on the track of numerous russian, european and african artists as well as legendary US MCs such as Planet Asia and Rasco. Moreover, he has created several instrumental albums that truly stand on their own, thus following Dam Funk's ideology - "I don't just do beats... I make music". At mbar, you'll witness the funkiness of BMB's modern funk at its best - performed LIVE!

A teen no longer: GTD reached the milestone of 20 mixes!


We've been asked for quite some time already about new mixes coming up in the blog. We're very sorry for having to keep you waiting. Ever since the previous modern funk mix was recorded we've been aching to do a new one, but for us, teaming up for a back-to-back mix doesn't come easy as both of us live in different cities. Furthermore, when we manage to be in the same place we don't have that much time for a mix since there are tons of other stuff going on as well.

Like our previous modern funk mixes, this one starts with some mellow and smooth sounds from Dynooo, Union, Ta-Ku and Kixnare heading towards analog atmospheres of ARP▲101, Ad Bourke and B Bravo. Then the mix takes a slight turn to a more ruff and sinister soundscape delivered by Free The Robots, Harmonic 313 and the classic Game Over by Dabrye, Phat Kat and Dilla. By the time "Tried For Your Love" kicks in you should most definitely feel the funk.

So, it has taken some time but now we're happy to tell you that we have put on quite of an effort in delivering you some of that analog goodness. We believe your wait has been worth it and that this mix serves as the perfect 20th mix in the GTD mix series.
