DJ Ridym - Brit Funk & Rare Groove


Welcome listeners to part 2 of my Brit Funk & Rare Groove mix full of Jazz Funk nuggets from back in the day.

We set the funk-o-meter dial to HIGH beginning with a very rare and unreleased Jamiroquai cut that quickly sets the tempo for the next few tracks from Atmosphere, Incognito, AWB and Heatwave. This is Jazz Funk at its best people and the fact that it's British makes you wanna put that extra dip, turn and shuffle in your dance step!

Changing the tempo slightly with a Paradise track and an early Loose Ends gem that for me sort of signalled a change at the time and a new sound for British soul groups and ringing in the change that there was a new sound on the horizon were groups like Total Contrast, Second Image, Cool Notes. This is where our unique Brit sound came into its own as a result of a number of British influences such as the casual scene, Lovers Rock and weirdly enough football for as we know football fans are well known for their love of chanting which made its way to the dance floors and eventually to the music itself with groups like Beggars & Co. 

Hope you enjoy and look forward to another instalment of my Brit Funk mixes some time in the near future but until then as they say in radio world keep it locked onthe Soulmixtape Blog!
