A funky blast from Freqnik & WDRE! "Favela B-Boy Funk" is a killer cut from the NYC duo – who make a pretty strong impression here on this debut single on the Boro label. The tightness of the beats really does give it a timeless B-Boy funk feel – and it's paired nicely with some raw horns and Afro-Latin rhythms. It's schooled by classic crate digger funk – but it's done with a fresh, timeless, global spin. Includes the "Drumapella" version on the flip, where you can focus squarely on those stellar drums!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
