  • Opolopo + Amalia - Keep It Cookin' (Rubber Johnson Remix)
    Opolopo + Amalia - Keep It Cookin' (Rubber Johnson Remix) Respect Music Records has done it again, but this time they have had the help of one of the industries future funk leaders and heavyweights, Opolopo. This man needs little introduction as his works can be found everywhere online from doing amazing original productions, remixes and bootlegs for the likes of Stevie Wonder, The Sunburst Band, Joey Negro, Defected, Tokyo Dawn Records and many more. So as you would expect with Opolopo behind the mixing desks and keys, he offers us up nothing less of an 80’s drenched electronic funk stomper to get down too. In addition to having the amazing talent of Opolopo on board for this release, Respect Music Records were also fortunate enough to get the very dynamic and energetic Amalia with her trademark P-Funk inspired vocals. Amalia also needs little introduction, being she too is a leader in the future funk world and shows it by owning this groove with her chorus line hook, thus giving this track its title “Keep it Cookin’”. B-Boys, B-Girls and all funk music lovers alike will get down to the Original Future Funk Mix for sure! Now not only is there an extended mix, instrumental mix and acapella of the original version of “Keep it Cookin’” but we are spoilt with some remixes by the likes of Rubber Johnson, CC aka Crazy Corner Productions and Haydos. All offering something a little different and catering to very different niche markets. Firstly the funky club remix offered up by Rubber Johnson delivers something a little different from their usual electronic funk styles. This time they deliver a more house style number, reminiscent of early Basement Jaxx. It is without a doubt still funky, as would be expected, but just a bit more four to the floor. This will no doubt be one for the midnight hour dance floors. Secondly out of the UK we have the Crazy Corner Productions crew throwing down the CC Disco Funk Remix, which is a synth bass driven disco funk groover, for which the guys are getting quite a reputation for. Most of the RM Records fans will be familiar with their remix of Date Night’s latest release ‘Neon Lights’ which received amazing reviews worldwide. There is little doubt that this remix will deliver similar responses, as CC have truly nailed the funk down on this remix! Now for those that like their instrumental mixes the CC crew have also thrown in an Instrumental Mix to boot. These mixes will be perfect for any sexy lounge gigs that are building a dance floor vibe and will get people definitely in the mood for ……. dancing, among other things. Thirdly there is a new comer to the RM Records ranks by the name of Haydos, who delivers something a little different for the release, with him delving into the unique sounds of glitch funk and jazz. This will definitely be a track for the grittier of dance floors and for those that like a darker, moodier Breaks even Hip Hop edge to their music, similar to the sounds of Opiuo. Be sure to watch this space, as RM Records have a Glitch Funk Stomper scheduled for release in the coming months by this talented artist. So once again the team at Respect Music Records have dropped another funk fueled release with a diversity of mixes to suit a wide range of dance floors and ears. Bringing’ The Funk, Soul & Rhythm Every Time!

  • Date Night - Neon Lights Feat. Cam Nacson (Radio Edit)
    Date Night - Neon Lights Feat. Cam Nacson (Radio Edit) Date Night is comprised of 3 super talented artists, DJ/Producer Mike Dean the driving force and man with his fingers on the pulse of the industry, Engineer/Producer Anders David the man with the ear and skills behind the desk and the man who needs little introduction to RM fans, Sharif D the Musician/Producer/Performer. As one can imagine with a lineup like this, Date Night is a definite industry mover and shaker and one to keep an eye/ear out for. Now whilst thus far their sounds have been heavily influenced by House, this time they are taking the listener on a journey into the Drum & Bass genre, featuring the amazing vocals of Cam Nacson who basically makes a call to the youth to grasp life tightly and make the most of things no matter what! To top this track off it also has the trademark sound of Sharif D on the sax, which is the cherry on top of this melodic number, creating a sexy lounge style similar to that of DJ Marky and XRS’s works. To give this release even further weight, it has been garnished with 4 very diverse and tasty remixes. Firstly there is the “CC Disco Groove Remix” offering a shout to the late 70’s Disco era and late 90’s house scene, provided courtesy of Wade Teo and Brad France of Crazy Corner Productions. This remix is definitely the one for all the lounge bars worldwide to nod to. Secondly there is a remix by the very talented and funky Mark Maxwell offering up a style that he is without a doubt making his own, giving the track a tasteful merging of genres such as Deep House, Tropical House and Nu Disco, creating the perfect vibe for pool parties worldwide from the WMC in Miami all the way over to Ibiza. Thirdly back again after dropping a glitch hop remix for Sharif D's debut with the label, Cutloose is back to take Neon Lights on a Chill Step / Nu Wave Hip Hop journey with a spacious remix reminiscent of productions by Pomo, Snakehips and Darius. Then to wrap the package up, a club banger for all the late night dance floors and festivals has been offered up by a new act signed to the Respect Music Records label by the name of The Rhythm Method. Once again the genre lines are very much blurred here, with this track being a shout to the old with a twist of the new. Lets just say that if The Prodigy and Tchami gave birth to a love child in the middle of a UK Garage Club dance floor in the late 90’s where you would find the likes of Artful Dodger and Zed Bias spinning vinyl on the regular, The Rhythm Method would be that child. So in all a very complete and diverse release yet again from Respect Music Records who are definitely “Bringing’ The Funk, Soul & Rhythm” on this joint!

  • We Gotta Get Up! (They Gotta Stand Down!)
    We Gotta Get Up! (They Gotta Stand Down!) Creative Consciousness is one of the many aliases of Respect Music Records owner James Canning. This particular alias was created as a means of aligning with like minded artists from all over the world to share their views on the struggle of the average human, battling against the western corporate monopoly and how opportunities of freedom and sustainability could be just around the corner, should people choose to stand up for the rights of themselves and others. Each collaboration is produced and co written by “Creative Consciousness” whom takes on the musical influences of the culture and country which he is collaborating with, whilst allowing the indigenous artists of this region to share their views on such topics in their own native tongue. To make things even sweeter and to put their money where their mouth is, it was only right that Respect Music Records donate all profits from this project to an educational non for profit organisation as a means of aiding the world from the grips of consumerism and greed and back to the nurturing arms of life and productivity. “We Gotta Get Up! (They Gotta Stand Down!) is the debut release for Creative Consciousness and he thought it only right to start the collaborative journey at the epicentre of corporate greed and western infrastructure, the USA. To add to this symbolic release even furthermore the track will hit Spotify on February 20th which is actually International Social Justice Day. The track was composed by Creative Consciousness and had some amazing session work laid down by Guitarist Brad Weynton, whilst on keys tying it all together and offering that finishing sparkle, renowned international Keyboardist/Producer Simon Grey. The composition is undoubtedly inspired by the Funk, Soul and Rhythm & Blues influences of the USA, resonating similar sounds to that of Raphael Saadiq, giving the track a very palatable and accessible vibe for the mainstream but at the same time delivering a message of great importance, which is sometimes missed in this popular arena. As a part of this collaboration Creative Consciousness sourced a diversity of artists that had similar views on sharing the truth with the masses. First up to bat is Chicago raised MC J.Noize, who introduces the track and the other collaborating artists, whilst giving the listener a detailed insight into corporate greed and its effects, whilst also offering a call to the people to be strong, unite and live by example for the children of tomorrow. The second collaborator is the accomplished and forever giving Brooklyn based Reggae Vocalist and MC, Mr Lee Gee known for his work with Masta Ace and many others over the years. Mr Lee Gee provides the chorus chant, or call to action if you will, for this revolutionary track, as well as some very smooth backing vocals, again drilling home that freedom is far more rewarding then money. Last but not least, yet another Chicago based artist by the name of Quest, with her soulful vocals offering color and harmonies to the backing vocals of the chorus line and then to climax the track she shares one of her greatest gifts, some spoken word poetry which sums up the track in its entirety. To quote Creative Consciousness “When I heard this, it gave me goosebumps, her words are so emotional and true”. As a result Respect Music Records have left it here below for all the readers to really grasp the whole idea of this collaborative project which is “Creative Consciousness” A statement and call to all who wish for a better tomorrow! Much respect to all whom have been involved in nurturing this ethical masterpiece. Bringin’ The Funk Soul & Rhythm Every Time!

  • The Shazam Experience - Sombrero (Single Sampler)
    The Shazam Experience - Sombrero (Single Sampler) The Shazam Experience are the latest addition to the Respect Music Records Family with the release of their new single "Sombrero". Their style of music is quite diverse covering Nu Disco and House music in all its forms (Soulful, Latino, Funky, Deep, Tribal, Progressive & Tech House). The live act has rocked dance floors across the globe with their unique funk filled shows, including performing live for MTV Europe and headlining internationally renowned Mediterranean dance festival Summer Dance (which over the years has graced the likes of Junior Jack, Kid Creme, Darren Emerson and Gabriel & Dresden, to name a few). "Sombrero" is a Latin inspired Soulful House track and it is definitely one of the highlights off Shazam's most recent album release. With its serenading flamenco melodies and soulful vocals "Sombrero" sets the perfect soundtrack for a Caribbean Summer adventure. Definitely a track that will be a popular addition to any House DJ's pool side sessions. Sombrero has a bit of something for everyone, as in addition to the Radio Edit, Extended Mix and Acapella DJ Tool, we also have added two very different remixes. Firstly coming from Toronto, Ontario we have DJ/Producer Frankie Shakes, delivering with his remix, an upbeat tribute to the classic sounds of house with a full vocal remix as well as a remix Instrumental for those that dig the musical journey. Secondly we have yet another fellow Canadian DJ/Producer Faiith, whom should be familiar to all the Respect Music Records fans after dropping his debut the "For Real EP" with us just last month. Faiith opted to add some diversity to the Sombrero release with a darker moodier remix for those late night sets in place of the more tropical sound he is also known for. We hope that one, if not all of the mixes gets you moving also and we look forward to getting you more great sounds from around the world shortly. Bringin' The Funk, Soul & Rhythm Every Time!

  • Stalkz featuring Jacob Rohde - Brave New World (Sampler)
    Stalkz featuring Jacob Rohde - Brave New World (Sampler) Stalkz is undoubtedly one of the Australia's most talented emerging young hip-hop artists. 2012 saw him carve his way through the live circuits supporting International and interstate acts such as DJ Krush, Cut Chemist, Class A, GDP, Fort Kilsby, 2Dogs (Resin Dogs), DefWishCast and Kerser. Then in 2013 Stalkz returned with his debut single "Brave New World"off the coming EP "We Never Left" The single "Brave New World" captured in detail the many varying aspects of desperation and indulgence. It's an honest and direct account leading you through the deep lows and great heights of extravagance, and it's toll on the human condition. The song is set on the Gold Coast and its narrative is raw, gritty and most importantly, true. It deals with themes of culture, politics, addiction and truth in a uniquely poetic format. It's mellow instrumental was assembled by U.S super producer "Vherbal", well known for his work with artists such as Vinnie Paz, Canibus, R.A Rugged Man & Sean Price. Singer/song writer "Jacob Rohde" adds his distinct vocals to the songs catchy hook, collectively creating an unforgettable piece of music. As a part of the single release there is also a couple of remixes available to tend to the varying appetites of listeners, one of which is of the Jazzier Hip Hop vibe and has been produced by yet another very talented new addition to the Australian music scene "Zeed Mantis". Then we have a funk lounge mix, thrown down by the Respect Music Records resident funk outfit "Rubber Johnson" giving a whole new vibe to the track inclusive of Instrumental, No Rap and Acapella mixes for the DJ's that like to mash things up! Lastly the single is accompanied by a powerful, dirty and thought provoking film clip, which takes the viewer on a journey from the vandalized streets of an abandoned neighborhood to the affluent business precincts of the city. Reminding the viewer to look deeper than the surface, because often, looks can be deceiving. Check the link: youtu.be/4OWkYBqKef4 On behalf of the RMR Team, we do hope you enjoy our third release as much as the last. Bringin' The Funk, Soul & Rhythm Every Time!

  • Rubber Johnson - U Can't Stop The Rubber Rocket! (Sampler)
    Rubber Johnson - U Can't Stop The Rubber Rocket! (Sampler) Rubber Johnson is a group of individuals that have come back from the future to save the people of planet Earth from being totally and utterly deprived of Fun, Creativity and Life. RJ and their crew mascot "The Rubber Rocket" do this by battling the mediocrity that is enforced by the evil ways of Professor BuzzKill and The M.A.N (Ministry of Amusement Nullification) and do so by bitch slapping their asses with their bad ass funk and freeing the masses from their oppressors. This debut solo release by Rubber Johnson is a tribute to their crew mascot, titled "U Can't Stop The Rubber Rocket" This track is guaranteed to snap sleepers out of their hibernation and get bodies all over the world wet with excitement! First off the bat we have the Original Ass Shaker mix which is a dive into the late 70's disco funk era with a splash of future funk, inclusive of Instrumental and acapella. To add to the release we then have invited our US based funk brothers in arms, All Good Funk Alliance to share their vibes with us. As a result they have dropped a 4 to the floor nu disco stomper inclusive of an instrumental mix. We then have yet another heavyweight producer on remix duties courtesy of Fingerlickin' Records with Slyde dropping an absolute club banger. Then for the house heads out there, we have managed to get the likes of Dutch House producer Phonic Funk and Sydney based producer Reekay Garcia to offer up two very different house remixes. Phonic's Slap It Hard Remix offers us a throbbing deeper tech vibe whilst Reekay's an Afro House shuffle. We hope you all enjoy the first installment into the world of Rubber Johnson, Keep That Funk Alive Y'all and thanks for your support. Bringin' The Funk, Soul & Rhythm Every Time!
