An uptempo funk gem from Binky Griptite – guitarist for the Dap-Kings, so you know he has true school funk & soul in his blood, but he's also a pretty effective vocalist – totally driving it home on "The Stroll"! "The Stroll" is straight up, unambiguously about the world's oldest profession – getting down and dirty in the vocals, and in the Dap-King funk backdrop – with hard hitting drums starting it out, clearing the path for a blast of horns, a killer bass groove, and some of the best funky guitar work we've heard on a Dap-Kings recording to date! The guitars get more room to groove on Part 2, with duel leads going at it. Amazing stuff! Bring on a Binky led full length, already!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dirty Money/AWOL
Daptone, 2012. New Copy
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sharon Jones does a wonderful job with this classic – getting some hard funky backings from The Dap-Kings, and soaring out over the top with the best reading of the lyric we've ever heard!

Daptone, 2008. New Copy
A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe! "How Long" still has plenty of soul here, but it also takes on a bit of a Kingston groove too – stepping along with a 60s rocksteady vibe that supports Sharon's vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bang! This one starts like a mofo – hard drums rattling in a monster break, and really setting the scene for Charles stark and soulful lyrics.

Mobile Mondays, Early 70s. New Copy
Pure brilliance from The Nubian Crackers – a New York party groove from the early 90s, and one that's overflowing with classic samples from the old school!

Cherries, 2012. New Copy
Fantastic funk from Tony Ozier – an artist with a groove that's quite different than most of the other contemporary acts on the scene!
