Qdup—the production/DJ moniker of our own Jayclue— returns with a funky collection of tunes featuring some amazing vocalists from Austin, Texas.
Live, Mother’s Finest couldn’t be beat. Here’s one of my favorite songs, “Piece of the Rock”
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.
Here’s a slice of psychedelic funk from the Funkadelic’s 1976 release Tales of Kidd Funk album.
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.
Some nasty Italian acid jazz funk for you. “Say It Again” borrows heavily from the gut funk of “Good Good Feeling” by War and lays it on with vocals by none other than CeCe Rogers, psychedelic guitar riffs and live instrumentation that keeps it loose and oh so funky.
Brazilian funkster Di Melo’s 1975 classic “Kilario” gets a beat-heavy rework from the Shaka Crew.
I’m lugging a crate of my favorite jazz, funk, soul, and reggae 45s into the DJ booth for a rare all-vinyl set at The Lodge at Red Rocks!
