The Knutsens 'In-N-Out The Ivy' Mix Vol 1 (2020)
A couple of weeks ago I discovered a new group on Soundcloud, called the Knutsens. If I'm honest, I don't know who's behind this project, or what their name means, but their latest mix is yet another one I would like to share with you all. Unless you hate Disco and Funk music. In that case, why you even bothering reading this? Who doesn't like Disco and Funk? Seriously, who hates it enough for them to go 'nah, I'll pass'? That's just surreal.
I don't even know the restaurant/bar The Ivy. Am I really alive? Am I a person of this world? Clearly not, there are so many locations for me to discover. But what I can gather from the image, it's a funky looking bar, and having Disco/Funk music played there, well, it looks suitable. And with this mix, the Knutsens are thanking the Ivy for them playing there. It's obviously now a bit different due to COVID19, but I'm guessing that once everything goes back to normality, they will have the bar rammed.
Their mix is a short one. Would really hear a longer mix. Time just goes by too damn quickly. Especially when you are enjoying the music. And I've even played this last weekend during our first BBQ of 2020. And no one complained, so that's a bonus. Did it make the food taste better? Nope. Music doesn't have that much power!
Anyway, the tracklist, if you are interested.
Horse Meat Disco feat Kathy Sledge - Falling Deep In Love Again (Joey Negro 12" Disco Blend)
Angelo Ferreri - Izinque (Alessio Cala' Remix)
COEO - 1981
Opolopo - Mr Zogs Sex Wax
Soul Reductions - Got To Be Loved (Extended Mix)
Change - Love 4 Love (Joey Negro Extended Remix)
COEO - Japanese Woman
Sister Sledge - You Fooled Around (Joey Negro Fooled Around With Mix)
Odyssey - Inside Out (The Knutsens In-N-Out Mix)
Without a shadow of a doubt, this has got some of the weirdest names ever. I cannot express my facial expression when I saw 'Horse Meat Disco' and 'Mr Zogs Sex Wax' in this tracklist. Is it weird? Yes. But is it good music? YES!
I can only give the Knutsens credit for making a mix so good. Normally I listen to the harder styles, but this time I'm really hooked on their mixes. They've uploaded two mixes so far, but I really liked both of them. Really funky, really catchy music. Absolutely nothing wrong with their style.
I should invest more time in styles a bit softer, a bit more fragile, but the harder styles just grab me, and don't let me go. But the Knutsens mix is really good, I have been playing this over and over. It's that addictive. It's like a drug: I just need more and more.
Wish I lived a bit closer to Edinburgh or Glasgow. I would have gone to the Ivy, to hear these wicked tunes being played. Nice and relaxing dance tunes. This kind of music can fit anywhere, any place, any time. So damn good. And the best record of them all? It's the one with the weird title: 'Mr Zogs Sex Wax'.
