Dr. J Presents... (Volume 12)
I can remember waiting a while to put this one together, and I nearly missed a train to London cutting it and putting it on my iPod! Finished in 2008, it's the culmination of my thirst for real funk music. I was especially interested in covers of tunes in funk, tunes that have been covered and just great funk music! Ranging from old school classics through to modern anthems, soul beats, jazzy breaks, funk inspired hip-hop and vice versa!
Part 1 kicks off with a little intro to set the tone: Mixing up the styles, looking at covers but also sampled gems and downright funk bangers. I was keen to keep things as fluid as possible, and as always to draw from influences old and new, as long as they had soul. Watch for the drop into part 2 - Mr. Scruff fans should have a lot to smile about...
