Mr. Confuse is DJing at the 3Raum club in Hannover since the very first hour of the club history. This compilation features the Mr. Confuse song “Imóvel” from the album “Feel The Fire”. A smooth and funky compilation from the club at Ballhof Hannover. (more…)
How good is this? Mr. Confuse shows his talent to build hard hittin’ beats in a conscious hiphop style. Drop the needle for this funky beatmonster and a prancing piano hook with classy sax stabs sure will infect you. Cool down on a massive horns break until the saxophone steps into a dirty chopped Public Enemy style. Flip for the slow burning funk groover ‘Low Life’. Starting with some catchy stabs this souldchild turns into an echo from the past. Well balanced with some delicious brass parts and rare used effects this is a real vintage style headnodder. Sample madness galore! (more…)
Mooove! This tune will shake floors. Funky fat beats, killer hornsection and flutes galore merged to a real groovemonster. The Torpedotrickser remix is huge too, giving ‘Wake Up’ a bit more electronic touch and backed by uplifting vocal cuts this will cause massive reactions!
Turn around and ‘Kodiac Jam’, a heavy theme for your caraudio will bounce along. Danish beatsmith BadboE giving it the party retreat in a Goodgroove style. Not enough? Check the Mr. Confuse remix of ‘Mexican B-Boy’ for serious breakers action. MUST HAVE!!!
Mash & Munkee recently appeared with a beatheavy remix of Mr. Confuse on his debut hit single ‘Lookout Weekend’ alongside a Lack Of Afro remix. And this german producer duo has much more to offer. Expect more beats for your party, loads of themelike funk groovers and a handful of dope produced remix appearances for next year. (more…)

Due to the digital DJing hype before and from 2007 Mr. Confuse established a little note on his MixCDs saying: “Mixed with real Vinyl for your listening pleasure”. Especially by that time some of the DJ-Sets heard in clubs had very bad sound quality due to lofi MP3 been played. The note have been established to let the listener know he will have the full audio quality when he is listening in his car or at home… (more…)
Full remix pressure has been guaranteed for this vinyl release. Smoove laid his trusted hands on the title cut of the album. “Feel The Fire” gets the complete Northern Funk treat from the up & coming Newcastle producer. AIFF, the Netherlands’ finest merchants of afro and funk grooves, took care of “Do It Right Now” and delivered a sureshot dancefloor mover. Meanwhile the Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra from Paris/France took “Going Somewhere” back to Africa and re-recorded it with an authentic feel. (more…)

Author Julian Brimmers führte im Rahmen seines D-Funk – Special im hhv.de Katalog 03/2008 ein Interview mit Mr. Confuse am 06.10.2008.
Das Interview hat den Titel “Mr. Confuse – Die Ordnung des Samples” und wurde kurz nach der Veröffentlichung von Mr. Confuse’s album “Feel The Fire” geführt.
Im Folgenden beleuchten wir ein paar der spannenderen Künstler aus heimischen Gefilden, die die Grundlagen des Funk und Soul für ihre eigene Soundästhetik nutzbar machen, ohne ausschließlich ausgetrampelte Vintage-Pfade anzuvisieren: Die beiden MPM-Künstler Flomega und Suff Daddy, die durch ihren Facettenreichtum die progressive Philosophie ihrer Labelheimat nahezu perfekt verkörpern, das ehemalige Breakout-Mitglied Mr. Confuse, sowie die Wien/Augsburg-Kombination 7Samurai. Zusammen repräsentieren diese Künstler nur den kleinen Ausschnitt einer lebendigen Szene, die über Genre-Grenzen gerade mal müde lächelt und so herrlich unverkrampft dafür Sorge trägt, dass man selbst in der BRD für kurze Momente den notorischen Stock gegen eine gehörige Portion Funk im Arsch eintauschen darf.
