Oh my days, it's been ages since I dove into my collection of funk 45's and lp's. I used to collect heavily until reggae and (early) dubstep got the best of my wallet. With prices of original funk 45's rising through the roof and many of the re-issues sounding the same, I somewhat left the funk and soul scene. But that is not to say I don't love the music. Greatly inspired by the latest of http://www.mixcloud.com/heavysoulbrutha 's mixcloud uploads I found myself spinning some vintage material once again. Added, here and there, with a Jamaican twist, it fed me good!
What you hear is a one take, none prepared set. It's just me literally diving into whatever I could get my hands on in time. Let me tell you, that was both stressfull as well as great fun. Every tune I played sparked a memory, and that memory is the selection you hear. I'm up for a second run :)
I hope you have as much fun listening to this as I had compiling it.
