Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 9
I really dig how funk music touches so many other genres, like R&B, Soul, Disco, Jazz, Rock, and increasingly Electronic.
This is a mix that dances on that magical thread that stitches funk and disco together. It has deep '70s funk tunes, like Get The Funk Out Of Ma Face by The Brothers Johnson mixed with dance classics from Larry Levan's Paradise Garage that include Don't Make Me Wait by NYC Peech Boys.
It also jumps into the '90s with tunes like Hot Thing by Prince and Freaks Of The Industry by Digital Underground.
Jam to this the next time your funky friends pay a visit. I'm sure they'll dig it.
