Criminal Funk

About a year ago I put ‘Players, pimps and pushers’ online with tracks from black action movies (the so-called ‘Blaxploitation’ soundtracks). It was originally a mix I did for Laid Back radio a few years ago. For a long time I wanted to do something similar, but with a different approach. A combination of modern funk and old school tracks. I started to work on this mix in 2008 and finished it only last week after hearing the ‘Black Belt Jones’ OST from Dennis Coffey.

Tracklist:

Resonance – OK Chicago (1974)
Dennis Coffey & Luchi De Jesus – Super Slick (Get Pinky) (1974)
Hidden Strength – Hustle On Up (Do The Bump) (1976)
All Good Funk Alliance – Sha Sha (2008)
Rhibosome – Walkin’ (2005)
Karen Bernod – Tell ‘Em Let ‘Em Know (2006)
Palov & Mishkin – Theme From ‘Backslam’ (2007)
Superphonics – Give A Little Love (2008)
Q-Tip (feat. Amanda Diva) – Manwomanboggie (2008)
Reel People (feat. Omar) – Outta Love (2007)
Alice Russell – Turn And Run (2008)
Incognito – Feel The Pressure (2008)
Snowboy & the Latin Section – Cubano Blues (2008)
Adriana Evans – Undercover (2007)
Cool Runners – Play The Game (So You Think It’s Funny) (1982)
Dayton - Out Tonight [Frankie Rodriquez’ Nightly Club Mix] (1983)
Dennis Coffey & Luchi De Jesus – Black Belt Jones Excerpts (1974)
Grant Green – Travelling To Get To Doc (1972)
Dwele – World (2010)

Enjoy! Next up 'Moon-Boots', a mix I could have done for Beats In Space... ;-)

Some great tunes yet again Eddy!

I hadn't noticed how good that Adriana Evans track is - one for my show in the coming weeks without a doubt!

It's funny I've got Cool Runners coming up on Dazlingsoul in November and Dayton pencilled in too - You know what they say "Great minds and all that"!

Great minds do think alike, D.! ;-)
