Discogs Mix 72 by DJ Mamabear, comes in support of Modern Funk Fest 2018, presented by Discogs, taking place on June 16th at the Grand Star Jazz Club in Los Angeles, CA. MFF ’18 will feature performances by many of the top movers and shakers in the Modern Funk scene, including: The Egyptian Lover (with live band featuring XL Middleton, Brian Ellis, and Ghost), Beverly Girl, and Zackey Force Funk, and DJ sets from Gwizski, Hotthobo, Mamabear, Funkmosphere DJs, Austin Boogie Crew DJs, and more. The festivities will be hosted by Moniquea.
Growing up in Southern California, Mamabear’s musical tastes were developed by spending nights in the roller rink, skating to Funk and Hip Hop as well as hearing her parents’ New Wave collection. In 2007 she purchased her first pair of Technics turntables; she quickly went from spinning in her bedroom to making her debut in San Francisco, and in 2009 became part of the acclaimed Sweaterfunk crew, the most devoted purveyors of spinning Boogie vinyl, which has hosted Dam-Funk, Steve Arrington, Leroy Burgess, Howard Johnson, and Onra, to name but a few.
Beginning in 2010, DJ Mamabear spent 2 years living in the city where House music was born, Chicago, learning the art of extended blending and how to get lost in the 4-on-the-floor.
After Chicago, she moved to Las Vegas, where she held a residency at Insert Coins in DTLV, bringing the city to a different sound than what is usually heard on The Strip. Seeking a return to her roots, in 2015 she moved back to LA to where it all began. Frequently guesting on Dublab Radio, where she played her first live over the air mix in 2012, she earned her own show, The Honey Pot, where she showcases Boogie, Modern Soul and 2-Step every fourth Friday of the month from 8-10p PM PST at dublab.com.
Highlighting recently released tracks from our Sweaterfunk play cousins (Tuxedo, Psychic Mirrors, Buscrates, Kutcorners) as well as soulful Boogie classics, this mix is intended to be played while cruising with the windows down or to be played during a BBQ at a healthy volume. — DJ Mamabear
