WhoSampled's Funky Runner Mix Competition
WhoSampled's Funky Runner
James Brown's Funky Drummer is one of the most sampled tracks in the history of music (WhoSampled's infographic). In this game, WhoSampled, the biggest website about sampling, is looking for your mixes of your favourite funk and soul tracks. As the Godfather said, a Funky Runner always “Gets on the Good Foot!”
The winning mix will be featured on WhoSampled. The 3 best mixes will win cups and points in the race to the Best Radio Nation in the World.
|This mix is a bit of an outsider in terms of plays and favourites, being a late entry in the race, but we were immediately grabbed by the track list which represents a very different side of funk to most of the other entries: Roger Troutman, Prince, D-Train and many of our other 80s Electro-Boogie favorites rub shoulders on this neatly mixed 25 minute boogie-thon!||As the most listened to mix with over 200 favorites from the Mixcloud community, this was always going to be a strong contender. We've checked out AME's mixes in the past and particularly enjoyed his Dilla sampled breaks mixes in the early days of Laid Back. This mix puts together a fantastic selection of less obvious break heavy funk gems in a tidy edit style mix that keeps momentum and flavour throughout.||HSB has a strong following on Mixcloud and not without good reason. We love neatly themed mixes and this selection of rocky funk nuggets is the perfect mixture of heavy rock influenced drum breaks and funky feeling grooves from some of the genre's best known names.|
