James Brown......The #1 artist of all time in my opinion. His influence on funk, soul, and the creation of Hip Hop and all its elements are second to none. His showmanship and energy shaped other all time greats in Michael Jackson and Prince.
I have been looking forward to making this mix for a very long time and enjoyed every second of it dancing the whole way through behind my mixer. I stuck with songs he featured in, but his musical reach is so far I'll have other opportunities to showcase other songs he had a hand in. He died December 25th but he'll live on forever through his music. I hope this makes you crack a smile and move! Enjoy!
