About this item
In The Red Vol. 2 (A Britfunk Selection by Saint-James) is released almost a year and a half after the first compilation. This second volume still focuses on the britfunk genre - or british jazz-funk - mainly produced in London between the end of the seventies and the eighties. It defines a unique mix of jazz-funk & disco including reggae & dub techniques from Afro-Caribbean communities who were at the heart of the movement.
Parisian DJ, activist and producer Saint-James has again selected the most exciting, rare and powerful tracks from that era (1981-1988). Included in this compilation are Stikki Stuff, Cruzial, Potion, The Breakfast Band, Yeow Band and Scratch (better known as Gonzalez). Expect powerful synth solos, crazy slap bass grooves and lovely vocals on the top when the horn section is not busy doing its funky thing.
Back in the days, these young musicians gave their music a unique British flavor and raw energy pushing the needle "In The Red". Almost four decades later these powerful tracks are again ready to burn up dancefloors.
