The FUNKtion Sound is now back on our regularly scheduled programming with The Friday Night FUNKtion show as primarily Hip-Hop / R&B / Caribbean music and The WERK out show primarily as Dance Music (of course with variations as I see fit). So on THIS episode, I'm just checking out some of the new tracks that I've downloaded so far this month in preparation for TWO parties that we're doing:
1) #BlackDenimEdition on October 8th at Frank's Lounge in Brooklyn, NY. 2) #TheTakeOFF on October 15th at the Jetport Bar & Lounge right outside Lehigh Valley International Airport.
My managers are looking for College Reps in the Lehigh Valley who want to make some $$$ promoting #TheTakeOFF. If that's U, hit @MaxMgmt on Twitter & let them know U R #DownToPromote .
Enjoy the show,
