Lazy Disco Groove

Image
The China Burton track will be on a great new Brit funk compilation album by Joey Negro, called ‘Back street Brit funk’ that will be realeased next month. Thanks to my good friend the Dazler (check out his shows!) for reminding me of Mascara. And thanks to Nicolas for his knowledge and his seemingly endless collection of good soul and disco music. It’s funky chill time, enjoy!

Funky Blue Note Trip

This Funky Blue Note Trip is inspired by the great mixes of dj Maestro on the legendary Blue Note label. They are really cool, so check them out, if you can! There’s a mixture of funk, soul and, of course, jazz in this Funky Blue Note Trip. In the early and mid seventies jazz musicians made cross-overs to soul and funk with very surprising results. Especially the Mizell Brothers, who produced Bobbi Humphrey and Donald Byrd for instance, created the most innovative albums. Enjoy!

Bobby Hutcherson – Montara [Madlib Remix] (1972)
Ronnie Foster – Me And Mrs Jones (1973)
Yesterdays New Quintet – Footprints (2003)

Very Last Days Of Disco

This is part 2 of 'Last days of disco': again a couple of tracks that could have been played in the movie ‘Last days of disco’ (or ‘Boogie nights’).

It can be heard in a remix version on a great mix album, called ‘Zen and the art of disco maintenance chapter 1’ that came out recently. And thanks to Nicolas for China Burton. Enjoy!
