Scottish funk outfit Federation of the Disco Pimp are all set to headline our forthcoming Funk & Soul party, which also features live appearances from The Allergies and Manchester’s Family Ranks alongside DJs Jamie Groovement and Jonny Shire. Having recently unleashed two frenetic grooves on double A-side Tough Enough, they’ve proven their ability to get people moving, but in case that wasn’t enough, they’ve hit us up with five favourites of theirs that are sure to have the same effect! Have a listen to their selections below and pick up tickets for the Band on the Wall Funk & Soul Party on Saturday 29th April, here.
Payback – James Brown
‘The GFOS at his very best. The band are tight, simmering waiting for JB’s commands.’
D’Angelo – Sugah Daddy
‘The best there is around today! D’Angelo leads the way with Bill Withers drummer – James Gadsons (beat keeping it hip).’
Prince – Controversy
Impossible not to move to this beast of a track. Another trail blazer, a master of Funk & Sex.
Stevie Wonder – Contusion
‘An album track from ‘Songs in the key of Life’ but pure instrumental Funk at its best. Definitely one to check out from Stevie’s other side of his catalog.’
Herbie Hancock – Chameleon
‘Another Funk instrumental but super important and super Funky in the history of the genre. The full length version is 15 mins long and worth listening to every second.’
