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!
Qdup returns with the 21st volume of the Fort Knox Recordings Monthly Funk The World Cloudcast. Free download!
The Allergies have returned with another scorcher of a tune, “Special People.” Sounding something like a turbo-charged O’Jays, this is an absolute monster of a dance floor track.
Jayclue—aka Qdup Foundation—has just unleashed his own re-rub of Brass Construction’s 1982 hit, “Can You See the Light” as a free download.
I’m not from Chicago, but that doesn’t stop me from loving this 1982 Chi City theme song from the Light Touch Band and the 2013 rework from DJ KON.
I first heard Gary Byrd and The G.B. Express “The Crown” about 5 years ago, but could not find a decent copy. Then low and behold this cat, Secret Sun on Soundcloud, dropped his edit.
No reason, just a mix. This one includes the track “Catch Monkey (2AM Dub)” by none other than local talent The Sol Power All-Stars, and a whole bunch of sweet Gavri edits of classic disco material.
“Hard Times” is a prime example out of Griz’s catalogue of tunes to showcase his soulful, hard-hitting sound. Love this one!
