On this Thanksgiving, I bring you Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Gratitude”, recorded live from a 1981 concert
Superstar DJ/producer Mark Ronson teams up with none other than pop sensation Bruno Mars on the very danceable single, “Uptown Funk.” I can’t get enough of it!
Sola Rosa’s “Can We Get It Together ft. Noah Slee” is a great tune with a Nu-Soul vibe.
There are certain songs that everyone likes, and I mean everyone. “Proud Mary” performed by Ike and Tina Turner is one of them.
With this tune Brass Construction perhaps laid down the greatest side of disco dance floor funk of all time.
Samuel Jonathan Johnson brings the funk with this in-the-pocket classic, “Sweet Love,” off his one and only album entitled My Music.
Most folks that follow dance music these days probably recognize the bass riff and synth line from “What I Like” by Anthony and the Camp. But the OG is where it is at for me.
Pied Piper’s reworking of Marvin Gaye’s immortal “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” is one of the deepest, most respectful remix I’ve ever heard anywhere.
I just heard this cut by Ernest Soul Wilson for the first time last week. It’s got the trademark Studio One sound and oozes with soul.
The quintessential soul survivor Bobby Womack gets a nice, thumping tribute from a-list dance floor funk producer Jayl Funk.
