Gimme That Funk # 21

#21 is "Action" that funked up the floors around '82, by Orange Krush who were Larry Smith (bass), Trevor Gale (drums) and Davy DMX (guitar / turntables). Best known for being the backing band for the seminal Run-DMC  albums "RUN-D.M.C." and "King Of Rock". Still Jack to this!!!

Party Time..

1990's style, from Pal Joey who consistently blurred the lines between disco, house and hip-hop, dropping scraps of old soul samples alike over his skipping drum patterns and head-nodding keyboard lines. On this he dropped a sample from 'Brooklyn Express - Sixty-Nine'..This was a bomb back in the day!

Normally it takes a while for the mainstream to catch up and that's just what has happened with an Artist called Romare, who we blogged about 2 years ago. After releasing 2 EP's on the BlackAcre label he has just now signed up with the UK's mighty Ninja Tune label, after attracting widespread attention...Here he drops a brand new track of funky techno interspersed with ethnic field recordings, that brings back 90's progressive house sounds of Afro-Futurism. Top Quality & dropped for free..

'Fantastic Man' is a documentary investigating Nigerian musician William Onyeabor,  a man shrouded in mystery and myth. Directed by Jake Sumner (Alldayeveryday) the film tells the story of a label's attempt to track William down, speaking to fans such as Damon Albarn, Caribou and Femi Kuti and travelling to Nigeria to meet those who've worked with him in a bid to uncover the truth about his story.

George Benson Tribute

Another slice of smooth beatz & rhymes comes courtesy of New Zealand Producer/ DJ Amin Payne, who credits his influences as rooted in both the sample based hip-hop of the 90's and the synth based future funk / disco sound of the 80s. Here he reworks and reconstructs some of George Benson's tracks, developing a sound that is at once familiar, yet distinctly modern..Sweet your price D/L!
