"Gimme That Funk" # 14

An early 8T`s funky boogie club classic (Thinking Electric Ballroom) for ya!...The Whatnauts a trio outta Baltimore, USA, didn`t have much chart success but, if you recognise this surging infectious bassline, its because a more popular band Fat Larry`s nicked it all for their tune "Act Like You Know" released a year later. The track was by mixed by Tee Scott , one of those legendary NewYork dj`s. See post below.
And those fantastic rappers De La Soul used it on their track "Ring Ring Ring"
"Help Is On The Way" was released in `81 on Harlem International Records Inc.

An absoulute bomb!...enjoy!
