80s soul and funk - Soul Weekender Part 1

80s soul and funk - Soul Weekender Part 1

Playing tracks by

Mtume, Yarbrough & Peoples, Fat Larry's Band, Herbie Hancock, Shakatak and more.

One of the great things about the UK music scene in the 80s was the diversity of styles and genres. Rising from the northern soul sub-culture with its all-nighters, was the funk, disco and jazz inspired soul music scene of predominantly southern UK in clubs, and 80s all-nighters and weekender soul festivals, the brainchild of a couple of prominent soul club DJs.

Remembering the heady days of endless soul partying amongst hundreds, even thousands of like-minded 'funkateers', Hong Kong Beat presents part of 1 of 80s soul weekender for Funky Friday.
