The Mighty Mocambos sound even better here than usual – grooving out in a style that mixes their usual deep funk with a dose of old school South Bronx rhythms! The cut's a perfect blend of hip hop and funk – and features guest appearances by Charlie Funk, King Kamonzi, and Afrika Bambaataa – the last of whom is right at home, given that the cut is one that Bam would have spunk in a mix back in the day!

Stix (France), 2013. New Copy
Mato remakes Timberlake here – in a cool groove that brings in plenty of rocksteady to the rhythms, while still keeping some of the lead lyrical appeal! "Blurred Lines" gets the same sort of treatment – maybe not the groove Robin Thicke would have intended, but pretty great ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
2 of the funkiest tracks ever from this legendary group! "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" is the title track to the group's album of the same name – and it's got a slow, sinister bass/keys riff that you'll recognize instantly from a million samples! The original tune still sounds ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eva/Take Yo' Praise
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
2 funky sample classics - back to back on one 45! "EVA" is one of the greatest tracks ever by Jean Jacques Perry – a mad mix of snapping beats, spacey moog, and these cool bell tones – sampled famously by Gang Starr, but even funkier straight up in this original mix! "Ta ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Mad vocals from Spanky Wilson – a great singer with a rough-edged style, sitting somewhere between soul and jazz, and nearly always backed by some really funky arrangements! These tracks are 2 of Spanky's most in-demand with funk fans – the hard-hitting "You", and a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Got Myself A Good Man/Fire Eater
BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Killer funk from the glory days of the Prestige Records scene! "Got Myself" is one of the catchiest numbers ever ecorded by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – a barrage of bouncy beats, peppered with jaunty piano, and completed by a frenetic funky flute line over the top! " ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy
Two Detroit gems – back to back on a single 45! "Set My Heart At Ease" is an upbeat groove from Mikki Farrow – produced perfectly by the Pied Piper team, who build things wonderfully in a very short space – and really out-Motown Motown with the groove! "I'm Coming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two of the most famous tracks ever from Gil Scott Heron – both of them great! "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is Gil's great gift to the 20th Century – a tune that mixes his protest poetry roots with a massively funky line – sweet flute and heavy bass – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

I Can Remember/Standing On The Outside
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The bump here is a gentle one – a cool slow funk start to a track that turns out to be just the kind of mellow harmony number we love so much! The flipside's equally great – and both cuts have a feel that reminds us of those east coast groups who could be hard and sweet at the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Some "Strange Happenings" indeed – a tune that begins with a spooky, echoey sound, then rolls into a wickedly funky groove!
