Playing tracks by
The Poets of Rhythm, Sharon Jones & the Dapkings, Sugarman 3, Charles Bradley Larose Jackson, Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens and more.
Now you may appreciate that the vast bulk of my collection stems from pre 1985 however I do have a small, but growing section dedicated to those newer bands who base their sound on the Funk of yesteryear. And a record label who personifies this sound is New Yorks own Daptone Records!
This mix is a selection of some of the bands on that label including rediscovered funk veteran Charles Bradley (check out his excellent Bio movie!), Saun and Starr, Sugarman 3, The Budos Band, and Sharon Jones & The Dapkings- the labels house band whose sound was borrowed for Amy Winehouses Back to Black LP... plus many others to checkout.
Back in the blink of an eye!
