Nation of Skweee Monthly Production Challenge

We know about the weekly track production challenge, but the Nation of Skweee moves slower than that. Our version is a monthly challenge that fits our glacial pace just fine (barely) and has resulted in some interesting offerings in the past 2 months. This soundcloud set has compiled them all for your listening pleasure. Stay tuned for tracks based on the inspiring nature of melons and the healing properties of alcohol.

Kool DJ Dust 4 Hour Mix

What’s better than one hour of deep electronic funk selections by Swedish master Daniel Savio? 4 hours of that. Here he is as Kool DJ Dust with a marathon of funk, expertly mixed with love that you can feel through the speakers. Take the journey with us, you won’t regret it.

Radio Skotvoid – Ikea Crimejazz Vol 2

Check this thoroughly funky release from Boston-based 8-bit and skweee pusher Radio Skotvoid. Feel the heart and soul coursing through both tracks as the Skot does his thing on this aptly named release. Out now on his label RSVP Tapes, which put out the excellent Aces compilation tape last month.

Aces Compilation (RSVP Tapes)

Tape compilations are getting hotter in the extended skweee community, and this one doesn’t spare the heat. An interesting mix of minimal synth jams and forward thinking bass tunes, Aces is a wild ride through strange styles that come together under a tightly controlled 160/80 tempo guideline. This comp features a few veteran skweee masters alongside some new names that made a serious impact. Our very own Smoked Meat Fax Machine appears with a synth-laden r&b slow jam.

Fitzory North – Festen (Video)

The supremely talented UK video artist Antony Barkworth-Knight teams up with Barcelona based artist Fitzroy North to create another perfect coupling of image and sound for the skweee community and beyond.
