The 'Le Monde du Funk' box set is a journey through one music under a groove, the myriad mutations of funk from 1970-1985, across 10 mixes with tracks from over 160 artists. From James Brown's skeletal funk, the set traces its mutation into New Orleans funk, electro-disco, jazz fusion, boogie, funky Brasilia, myriad African interpolations of American funk, library records, Japanese city pop, early hip-hop, psych-soul, Motown's auteur era, funky reggae and dub, Philly soul, underground disco, proto-house, a bit of post-punk, and on and on--the groove is always central. Please support these artists, their labels and the shops that sell their music--buy the CDs, mp3s, LPs, tapes, to help make sure these sounds continue to inspire and move us.
