Full Tilt Boogie – Part 1


Boom! This is the first instalment of Full Tilt Boogie! Mixtape series, a collaboration between @beatmasterwright and @funkferret.

An ongoing series of fist punching, foot kicking Kung Fu Ninja madness.

Combining only the finest in Funk, and HipHop jams, this mixtape took us way too long to get organised, with many hours of back and forth track organising, editing, working out keys and getting that perfect mix down tight.

So wind up that punch and charge that foot for some Kung Fu fighting action!
