:::Drunken Monkey::: Mixology Series

"The Definitive Steppa"
The top selling 2-step mix in every store where it's sold!! Excellent smooth mix and dope beats for all the UK Garage heads out there. Features an original Drunken Monkey 2-Step remix of Janis Joplin's classic Hippie anthem "Mercedez Benz"!

"Smoked Out Sounds"
Top notch musical approach to the oft maligned/abused Jungle and Drum & Bass styles. Keeping the groove on the funky side with lots of soul to round out the bad ass Junglist bizness and a creamy downtempo filling.

"The Broken Lounge"
Taking the "lounge" genre up a notch into funky breaks, latin grooves, and soulful uptempo mash-ups this mix stands apart from the typical mellow fair of the lounge world. A popular choice with another original Drunken Monkey production as the closing track, "Bad Luck".

"The Music Tells The Story"
BY REQUEST!! Stage 2 of the Drunken Monkey style Drum & Bass sound is here. Rinsing out the old and new plates of soulful technotic funk for the future. Never a purist the Monkey brings in Brazilian rollers, Jump-up get-downs, vocal anthems, and 3 original all exclusive Drunken Monkey productions for the mix!

"Welcome to the Monkey House"
Despite a certain prideful resistance to being associated with the often overplayed genre of "House" music, the Drunken Monkey style has finally been applied to the ubiquitous music's charms. As always the mix is stylistically eclectic and extremely funky. And as is the tradition, 3 original exclusive Drunken Monkey songs fill out the mix!

More wonderful mixes available in the realms of Dancehall, Hip Hop, Breakbeat, old school, etc.

Don't sleep.
