Funky Friday Playlist

It's a nice and eclectic mix of tunes today - David Axelrod delivers the killer jazz/funk/fusion on Miles Away, taken from the Dusty Groove reissue of his 1975 LP Seriously Deep. Bomb the Bass have finally released a new album Future Chaos, with guest vocals from Mark Lanegan, Fujiya & Miyagi, Jon Spencer and Toob, who also contributes a remix. Is a new Q-Tip record ever going to come out? I need to hear more goodness like Gettin' Up, so please, record company, get your shit together! Nigeria 70 - Lagos Jump is a Strut Records comp of "original heavyweight Afrobeat Highlife & Afro Funk" and is so tasty you get two selections, from Peter King and Ify Jerry Krusade. Madlib the Beat Konducta delivers the chilled r'n'b vibe with Frezna, taken from WLIB AM: King Of The Wigflip. Fujiya & Miyagi are goofy yet never fail to get me grooving - love the little vocal "boom shaka laka boom" things on this track. The Emperor Machine rock the soundtrack motorik vibe with crusty synths. DJ Krush is class of '94 abstract, and is guaranteed to get your head nodding. David Bowie's Fashion is a classic, and just about the greatest thing ever - big disco beats, funktastic bass and that screaming guitar kill me every time. You have your beats, now move your feets!
