Afrodelik Funky Friday Song of the Day- Slave

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

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Graham Central Station

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!
