James Brown Tribute
3-Part Series mixed by PMX DJs
c/o 88 DC & Underground Knowledge
This second volume of JB tribute mix series is dedicated to the Funky People 45s. The bulk of earlier hip-hop records (80s/early 90s) relied heavily on the People breaks and riffs to substantiate production. Those Funky People records are the cornerstone of hip-hop. Before Puffy made a mockery of sampling, there was something beautiful about lo-fi basement producers jacking JBs and re-arranging in the SP1200 to create something completely new again.
