Free Download: Max Tannone's Ghostfunk Remix

From a release:

Max Tannone & Ghostfunk
July 2011 release

Hey, this is Max Tannone!  You may be familiar with my prior work like Jaydiohead or Mos Dub.

I'm excited to share Ghostfunk, my new project!

Ghostfunk is free to download and stream.

Released in July 2011, Ghostfunk pairs one of my favorite hip-hop artists, Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah, with vintage African funk, high-life, and psychedelic rock music. Artwork by Joe Dichiar

About Max:
Residing in New York City, budding music producer Max Tannone has taken the sounds of his hometown heroes and crafted them into a number of unique remix albums. Max burst onto the scene in early 2009 with “Jaydiohead”, combining the sounds of rap king Jay-Z and British rockers Radiohead. Catching the ears of MTV, NBC, hundreds of blogs, music news sites, and vinyl bootleggers, the project had Jay-Z himself even tweeting “There are 3 or 4 real gems on Jaydiohead.”

Following Jaydiohead, the Beastie Boys contacted Max in spring 2009 for a special remix within a remix to promote the re-release of their seminal “Check Your Head” album. Entitled “Doublecheck Your Head”, Max deftly weaves the Beastie’s tracks within themselves to create a thrilling interpretation of the punk-rap classic.

Max’s last release, Mos Dub, hit in spring 2010. Merging the styles of Brooklyn legend Mos Def with dub reggae masters like King Tubby and Lee “Scratch” Perry, Mos Dub is truly an innovative project that will undoubtedly spin at summer barbecues for many years to come. The sequel, Dub Kweli, featuring Mos Def’s oft-partner in crime Talib Kweli, was released in late August of 2010. In February 2011, Max released Selene, a five song EP inspired by the science fiction movie Moon.

In addition to presenting existing material in a unique context, Max’s projects also serve as a vehicle to expose the listener to new styles of music, imploring them to explore and expand their own musical tastes.

Oh yeah, Max DJs too! So if you want to hear some of his cool mixes at your next party, just ask him!
