If ya a regular to this blog, you know your funk and you'd know Breakestra, so I guess Breakestra dont need no introduction. The gig dont need no selling either as its already sold out. The good news is that SoulShaker djs are the local support. Gimme a woop woop! We are playing before, in the middle & at the end of Breakestra.
To get ya in the mood Iv just laid a furious funk 45 mix. They're all original 45's cut in the same vein & style of what you'll expect to hear from Breakestra. Hell, I may even drop a few of these at the gig.
I start the set off with a sweet soul number that fellow Stones Throw recording artist Mayer Hawthorne recently covered. For a white boy, he did a sterling job at covering this 1969 gem. I hope you dig it.
