Califunkya Dreamin’ 01 by Wes Smith

It’s here, the first release in the Califunkya Dreamin’ series. “Nothing To Say” is an absolute smasher, switching up grimy lead sounds on the main melody and redropping into utter synth madness. On the flip side, “Bubble Yummy” wubs its way into the mix, stacked with pitched vocal chops and a truly unique energy.

Do the Uprock by Wes Smith

Back at it again with not just a Califunkya but a Califournya version of “Do The Uprock”. Both tunes pack enough heat to have the crowd bouncin’ all night. As always, the Califunkya Mix breaks the beat while the Califournya Mix features four on the floor action.

Here We Go Again by Wes Smith & Max Bet

Next up on the release tip…Presenting “Here We Go Again”, a three track release including only the nastiest of frequencies, produced with the sole intention of making you move. “Here We Go Again” is a downright sinister beat, while “Let’s Get Down” follows suit with brutal distortion and finally “Throw That Tempo” turns up the speed and brings the bounce.  GO;)
