This is the second installment of our new (and quickly becoming my favourite) feature... SOUNDCLOUD SUNDAYS! In a nutshell, these are the 5 best cuts i've found this week whilst wading through the audio goldmine of soundcloud.com, and the best thing is none of these tunes are more than 4 days old. This week's a good'un...
#5 Sr. De Funk & Quincy Jointz - Tonight (Telephunken Remix)
This style of old-skool rap-esque funk infused with modern electro basslines seems to be getting bigger and bigger theses days (Think they're calling it Nu Funk?). Krafty Kuts (tune from him coming below) has been hammering this style for years now and it's prime for getting the dancefloors booming.

#4 Count & Sinden - Desert Rhythm (xxxy Remix)
Sheer carnival vibes from xxxy here, house tempo with the off beat snares give it a really funky edge. Only thing is i think a good brazillian/latino vocalist over the top would absolutely set this tune off.

#3 Krafty Kuts Feat. Futurecast - Insane Bangers Vol. 11
While not technically a track, it's a preview of his new (Nu Funk?) EP Insane Bangers Vol. 11 and it truly does stay true to it's name. Massive recognisable kicks penetrate the big womping bass in the way only Krafty Kuts can. Olso get on his free Fresh Kuts mix as it's siiickk

#2 Tonic & Audiobot - Happy Feet
This tune is right up here because of how completely off guard it took me. Starts out with a fairly good bouncing balkan beat and the build up continues in the same way, cuts out then... BOOM! You get hit by a massive dirty dutch beat over which he starts to layer the balkan sample again. It's awesome! and a free download...

#1 Jess Mills - Vultures (MJ Cole Remix)
Not gonna lie, the top spot this week was a fairly easy choice as soon as i heard a preview of MJ Coles new remix. The original tune, being produced by breakage was already steeped in production pedigree but MJ Cole has taken it to another level. Having perfected the 2-step style, it clashed beautifully with the chilled vibes from Jess Mills. Can't wait to get the full version on some decent speakers and mellow out to the sub bass! GO GO GO!
