Chart positions

This show was 27th in the global groove chart, 38th in the global beats chart, 50th in the global funk chart and 75th in the global jazz chart.

This is all party-zone funk, underground funk, mostly from the 70s but with a modern twist a la Stones Throw style.

Laid back weekends, fire hydrants in the heat, the bump and the bounce...

Some DJ friendly edits I made specially for this mix (and the podcast itself) are available for download at this link, so the word of the funk can be spread! : https://bit.ly/deLatestLinks

This is episode/mix 2 of the Underground House/Funk/Techno podcast (on Apple, Pocket Casts, TuneIn, Stitcher) (search for "Underground Funk")

The whole album seems like a kind of Incredible Bongo Band tribute by Tortoise (who are Bumps)

Yes, there's a warmth to these tracks! I reckon they were made primarily in Los Angeles summers or down South in Tennessee. There's at least one Canadian connection though, because the band Bumps are actually Tortoise! And Incredible Bongo Band had big Canadian connections too
