Being Halloween and all, this week’s Freakcast has me on for the first hour and half with Filta Freqz bringing up the last hour and a half. It was a ridiculous night of fun, and I can’t thank my FF brothers enough for making the show so fun!! Big love to all the Freaks!! We’ll see you next week
Enjoy Music and Freak Freely, Sista xXx
Good evening, Freaks… and Happy Halloween! The kids are out, the lights are down, and half-naked #GrownKids are gettin’ their freak on ALL over the world. Some in costumes at House parties, clubs, or swank country chateaus (where this freak is headed later), and then there are those who decided to keep the kinky costumes and stay home with their “Boo” … and those are the one’s I’m looking to…
I offer my latest installment in my “Sensual” series, and PT.1 of “Herstory“; a 4-part mix-series showcasing Down-tempo, R&B, Hip-Hop, Boogie & Bounce, and House music. All of what I’ve come up through in the last 20yrs as a DJ, and most definitely what’s been my inspiration as a musician and producer. This mix in particular is full of lush, sexy, baby-making down-tempo, and left-field future grooves – all designed to get your juices aroused …For all you headnodders who just enjoy a good beat – trust – I didn’t forget you.
As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS, Freaks!! I hope to share many, many more with you! Lastly, huge shout to my brother, Simonando, for the stunning artwork, Mia of Mia’s Eye, for the creative styling and awesome hotshots for the series, and to you – the Freaks – who helped me choose the perfect shot for the cover art. You guys kickass! Freak Freely and Enjoy Music … Love, Sista xxPlaylist: Sista Stroke – Afterglow (Ft. D. Kleez & Roshinda Evans) DJ Cam – Love Junkie (feat. Cameo) [J.

Post-ADE, this week’s Freakcast is a little more tech house-fueled than usual. There’s some great cuts floating around out there that have just enough boogie, and enough elements that still bring a ‘funk-swagger’ to the mix; within you’ll find nuggets from Del Horno & German Valley, Da Lukas, Raul Sanchez, Green Velvet, as well as some chunkier, bouncier, and neck-snappin’ cuts courtesy of Joss Moog, Steve Silk Hurley, Arturo Garces, and Chris Carrier. This one’s recommended for those moments when you just gotta put your head down and get on with it …
One last thing … I wanted to share this little ol’ love of some of my favorite memories from #ADE14, #FreakFreely, and hanging with ma’ homies.
Massive love to Joss Moog for the background music. Hope you guys enjoy the boogielove!

Let’s meet our family of DJs that made this day so boogietastic: We kicked off our 6 hour AMW/Freakshack Jack in true #FreakFreely style, with Dallas, Texas native Jenn Johnson droppin’ the first groove. Get to know this lady, Freaks; she delivers on choice selection and sound!
Next to the decks was Birmingham, UK native, Daniel Forrest; who brought the boogie back to full-tits, and had the freakshack at full jack! Check out his soundcloud for more killer mixes.
Next, I’m super happy to welcome Kingsize & Funktransplant to the decks! These Sittard, Netherlands are favorites across their country, and have steadily grown across Europe with their Soulfully Yours events. It took us a year, but we finally got to pop their #FreakFreely cherry – and now you get to taste their sweet house juice.
Next #onDeck: one new-comer to the #Robsoul label and one man who’s made the genre name, “Pantydropper“, a thing, Around 7 & Joss Moog. These two Frenchmen stepped up and delivered 30-min sets that were teases to what we’d be treated to at the “Soulfully Yours, Freak Freely, and Club Decoration event, ‘#HouseBrigADE” the next evening (and trust when I say they both absolutely annihilated Club 8 so much so, that the party went past it’s 4am closing time, with the club owner giving Joss full permission to keep killing it before he popped back to the dance floor.). Freak Freely has already been promised another appearance from our favorite pantydropper track-producing DJ, and we can’t freakin’ wait!
Next, we definitely saved the best for last with Deepjacking Recordings artist, Menno Overvliet. The last 2 years has seen this guys rise in the UGH scene – both on deck and behind the production board – holding things down with steady releases, bouncing mixes, and one-off events around the Netherlands. We know you’re going to love his set, Freaks … and without a doubt, you’re gonna wanna save it for later! (BIG p.s.: Menno is also THE SOLE REASON Freak Freely can even call AMW “home“… after ADE 2012, he asked me if I’d consider bringing FF to AMW, and the rest is freak house-bounce herstory – FF will be celebrating our 5th Birthday this year, and we’re proud to be doing it on Amsterdams Most Wanted radio.
For all the pics, videos, and goodies, please visit our Facebook page here. Big kisses, hugs, and massive, massive LOVE to all the DJs that made this day happen! I can’t tell you how happy I was to be given this special treat, Freaks, and to be able to share it with you was even better than all the delicious space cakes, ‘black’ brownies, and trees for miles down the Raw papers! You guys are the reason Filta Freqz, Wayne Brett, and myself do this – and let’s be real: It just wouldn’t be as much fun without you. We’re already planning a superthick Freak Freely/AMW event for next year, and promise to bring it even bigger. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for your support and love… we promise to never fall the f*ck off.
Enjoy Music and Freak Freely – Love, Sista xXx
