Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 2

Episode 2 of Gigolo A Go Go is all about funk.  Deep, muscular, funk.

The opening songs set the stage, each building in intensity.  We then take a turn into the world of latin funk, which includes an early track - Cuchi Cuchi - by the great Venezuelan band Los Amigos Invisibles.

The Cuban jazz master Bebo Valdés offers a little bit of a chill down before the hard stuff returns with classic funk and soul artists like Booker T. Jones, Tower Of Power, and Bootsy Collins.  Next is a segue into some of the best newer funk artists.

We then close with the great Larry Levan's mix of Bodyshine by Instant Funk.  It will take you back to the gritty days of NYC and Paradise Garage.

You can find all episodes of Gigolo A Go Go, plus lots of other great mixes, on Mixcloud.
