“Humpin”, Funky tune with a simple beat and a Parliament groove that will keep your hips movin’!
Click I know I’m late by 1 day for the 7 day challenge to post a favorite track from the 80’s, but this is a damn good one
Congratulations to one of the most notorious Bass Players in Toronto, Rich Brown, who’s latest album “ABENG“, is nominated for a JUNO for Best Jazz Album of the Year Solo. It is such an honour to have Afrodelik’s original design as the cover art for this beautiful gem of music.
Rich Brown is undeniably a VERY FUNKY MAN!
He is an amazing Jazz Bass player, but also a huge fan and player of tha’ FUNK. Without hesitation, Rich was my first choice in recording a funky track for my AFRODELIK COMMERCIAL. He recorded our vocals for the song, added just enough nasty funk, and VOILA…PERFECTION!
Such a fan of Such Great talent. Rich Brown I am so Proud of you. To you and the band, I wish you the best TONITE. LET’S DO DIS BROTHA!!!
Can you believe I just discovered this song last week??!….Forgive me funky people
“Taurus, Aries and Leo” is the name of this tune. Now isn’t this such a great damn groove? Did you really expect anything else from the J.B.’s?
If you’re lovin’ this jam, you NEED to tune in to my show FLAVAS of FUNK on iLiveRadio, every 2nd Thursday from 6-8pm. Its a Get Down type of thang!
1973 is when this tune went down!
Herbie Hancock killed it with Watermelon Man. I love the layering and progression of the tune. I attempt to hum all layers at the same time and when I succeed I feel proud. This is a vibrational orgasm right here…
Y’all remember this 1977 tune “Slide”?
Slave’s bass licks are cwaazy, and their funky beats are on point…a definite booty shake tune
This song brings me back to my childhood. I believe my parents bought this 45 record and we played it over and over and over again…
If you’re a fan of the FUNK and can handle da FUNK, check me out, DJ Dezi Dee every 2nd Thursday, host of Flavas of Funk on iLive Radio. Catch us December 10th for your next fill of funky music
“Burn It Up” is this week’s Funky Song of the Weekend, because one, as you all know I am a huge fan of Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott. Two, I’m excited and delighted to hear them both together again and three..this song is hawt, with a perfect syncopation of voice, funky rhythms and beats to make my BOOTY SHAKE. I LOVE IT and needed to share this HIT withchall!
Video Please Mamas!!
Ok y’all! how many of you LOVE THIS TUNE, and remember rollerskating to this tune, in your fanciest dance moves?
Well, unfortunately NOT ME! I LOVE THIS TUNE and only imagine in my mind what this would all look like if I could only rollerskate
Anyways this song makes me move…nonetheless
Simple…”I Know You Got Soul” is just SOOO DAMN FUNKY! This 1971 Hit with The JB’s and Bobby Byrd is the nastiest of the funkiest.
So much that Eric B and Rakim sampled this funky beat for their 1987 hit with the same name. (starts at 2:30)
In 1974, Graham Central Station’s hit “Can You Handle It” reached #9 on the BILLBOARDS chart
This song takes me back to my preteen years, with my parents, purchasing the newest 45s, and being so excited to go home and get down to it. This was ONE of them.
Graham Central Station’s style is an inspiration for all characters created through Afrodelik’s AFROCITY collection. Lovin’ the hair Larry!
