About this item
Parisian label Chuwanaga follow up 2017's 'In The Red', with the imaginatively titled 'In The Red Vol. 2' (A Britfunk Selection by Saint-James). This second volume continues the focus on the Britfunk scene of the early eighties. Although mainly produced in London (with a few VERY notable Mancunian exceptions) its unique mix of Jazz-Funk, Disco and Boogie still sounds fresh forty years on.
Parisian DJ, activist and producer Saint-James selection can't be faulted, if you were to splash out for this lot as individual 12"s you'd have a £300 hole in your pocket, and brother, I think we can all agree, that's one expensive hole.
Stikki Stuff spent the early eighties touring with Level 42. Potion, feature none other than Brit Funk LEGEND, Everton McCalla, who, aside from being a member of FREEZ, also played with Side On, whose classic 12 'Magic' was recently reissued on Bewith Records.
So, if you like your bass slapped and your horns, erm...horny best get your hand in your pocket, this is the album for you.
Matt says: Chuwanaga return with their essential Brit Funk compilation. Part 2 sees more unfathomably rare gems from the UK underground proffered up on fresh wax. Funky!
