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!
Fred Wesley and the New J.B.’s “Breakin’ Bread” is perhaps my favorite holiday/family-related funk jam. This song is all about family and food and James Brown’s rhythm section just does not let up the groove.
DJ D-Mac and Rockmaster Rus B. spin funk, breaks, disco, and boogie tonight at Café Saint-Ex
The Allergies are DJ/producers Rackabeat and DJ Moneyshot. Drawing on that sweet intersection of vintage funk, hip-hop and classic breaks, “You Wouldn’t Know” is funky as all get-out.
