About the show
Playing tracks by
J B, James Brown, James Brown & Lyn Collins and J Brown.
As promised something funky, indeed about as funky as you can get! A whole mix dedicated to the Godfather of Soul, Soul Brother no.1 Mr James Joseph Brown! One of the most influential artists of all time - innovating the funk sound and still heard in breaks and samples all over! We concentrate on the Funk from the late 60's to the mid 70's here.
We kick off with some music with a message in Take Some Leave Some, theres a cool re-edit of Dead On It, the slightly un-PC Its a New Day (although i challenge you fellas not to raise a smile!), theres the familiar Bowie riff used here by JB in Hot, we've one of his many collaborations this time with long term 'James Brown Funky People' stable member Lyn Collins and we end on a track used by TV producers everywhere whenever they need to illustrate anything slightly 'gangsta' - The Boss.
Catch you soon
