|Various Artists Supafunkanova Volume One Compiled by Joey Negro & Sean P Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
To tie in with second installment of Supafunkanova we are re-releasing a re-packaged Volume 1.
Disco historians and top deckhands DJs Joey Negro and Sean P cast the net yet wider with 'Supafunkanova', another retrospective of outstanding 12” tracks from the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Unearthing over 24 gems from their respective colossal record collections, the groovesome twosome pull together some of the original backstreet 12s which put FUNK into the disco decades.
It’s a collection sure to please all. The hard-bitten funk fan is likely to find something he hasn’t unearthed yet or even knew existed and the newly initiated disco boogie fan will find this a great place to start his digging. There’s even an exclusive remix by Joey Negro of the old school classic "We Rap More Mellow” by The Younger Generation, thrown in as an added bonus.
This DOUBLE CD features some old school rap styles from Billy Lamont and South Bronx, plus some proper jazzy street funk from Silver Lining, The Pied Piper of Funkingham and Hypertension. For the beat-focused, there are killer breaks to hand with some old favourites from J. Gayle Gaymon, BLT and Legacy, as well as Ray Munning’s cooler than cool remake of ‘Funky Nassau’. The gatefold Double LP also features a new and exclusive edit of Foreal People from Joey Negro. Reigning in sounds from New York, South Carolina, Washington, Boston and Los Angeles, Supafunkanova Vol.1 is an intoxicating blend of fiercely groovy arrangements, bouncy drumbeats and funk driven synths. A musical mix still as likely to get the booty shaking as it was over 20 years ago!
