‘If It Ain’t Funky Back It Up’ is an anthem for the stalwarts of good old fashioned musicianship and groove. Channelling the likes of classic funk bands like The JB’s, The Meters and Cymande it’s another stone cold floor filler from a man whose name who is on the lips of everyone in the know in DJ circles.

Soopasoul is an elusive legend in the scene, rarely doing interviews or performing live but since his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Twin Stix’ was released he’s regularly topped vinyl charts with his hugely popular edits series and enjoyed regular support on BBC6Music making him a cult figure.

This track shows no signs of him losing his Midas touch with his funk productions - this 2-parter is destined to follow in the footsteps of his other releases and become a staple dancefloor weapon in the DJ’s 45 arsenal.

Coming complete with a catchy refrain, choppy funk guitar, bouncing bass and a groove so deep you could run a plough through it this certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill funk fodder… You’d be a fool not to check it out!

DJ Soopasoul is back on his own Soopastole Edits label, this time paying tribute to the more great funk sounds and killer drum breaks. The artist is well versed in subtly reworking the classics, bringing them up to date and adding his own unique flavour. This time round Pac and Outlawz' brutal bars from savage Biggie diss "Hit Em Up" find a home over the tight groove of Fred Wesley's "Damn Right I Am Somebody" - forget Tinder, this is a match.
