'Funky Chicken' brings together some of the best Belgian funk tracks from the early seventies. Made in a country where virtually every musical wave passes through, most of these tunes were created and recorded by hired guns, in this case a few clusters of gifted session musicians and composers. The music on 'Funky Chicken' is their take on (afro-)funk, soul and Latin. Some of their releases were hit parade cannon fodder, but occasionaly, some spare studio time or the urgent need for a B-side allowed for memorable musical experiments.

'Funky Chicken' is a post-fact documentation, the result of a quest into a period on which information is few and far between, the 'black hole' in Belgium's history of popular music. The barren wasteland between the variety orchestras of the sixties and the electronic revolution of the late seventies and early eighties. This series explores the ground the dance pioneers built upon.

If seductive break-heavy funk (sometimes with a library feel) is your bag, then this is a must. Includes killer tracks by Chakachas, Mad Unity, René Costy, Placebo, Open Sky Unit, Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion Inc., Chocolat's and many more. Hot stuff!
