Three on a Thursday #98

tumblr_kxbahkDOEe1qz4t3mo1_500Been a while since one of these – largely as I was lounging in a field at the utter hippie-fest that was Sunrise.

Bloody good music though, which  – in a seamless segue – leads me onto todays little ditties.

Shameless, aren’t I.

First up this week is a classic slab of funk from Joseph Henry. Who’s The King (You Know That’s Me). Originally released on the retro-funk Desco label in ’98, this was recut and redropped on Daptone in ’05 following Josephs untimely death.

Wicked tune mind.

HT to Funk from the Trunk Furriest Funkateer, Vallee for this one

Keeping it in a funk vein, albeit a sampled one, this next cut flicks my hip-hop switches. Everytime I hear the name ‘Mystikal‘  the image of the nerdy kid in About a Boy jiggling down the corridor is never far from my mind, which isn’t s terrible thing, as the tune used is fantastic.  Hit Me is up on a par with this, with some seriously *huge* funk samples woven in and out of Mystikal channelling James Brown on the vocal.

(HT to Brad Baloo for kicking off the Facebook thread that led me to this …)

This one is a little bit of an oldie that I missed at the time, but it still sounds utterly fresh. Some Foreign Beggars tracks I love, others I can’t stand, there seems to be very little middle ground. Fortunately Broka Billy featuring the vocal styling of Grems it top drawer, especially when given a spin by Machinedrum. Mmmmmm, glitchy
