Funk 45s vol.5 – Old vs New Funk!

The fifth installment of a series of mixtapes that’s improving in quality as my digging / collection of 45s grows. For this one I wanted to make a point. Music with a message…hmmm yes, sort of.

Sometimes I hear folks dissing new funk bands and releases, only because it’s not from the late sixties. First of all, that’s lame. Second of all: I’m-a prove you wrong, motherfucker!

As a real battle strategist I gathered some of my latest acquired troops and mercenaries on the 1 and 2, separating the old and the new 45s in two teams. These fierce teams battle song by song for the listeners’ respect. I dare to think that after an hour you will never diss new funk no more.
