Livin’ For The Funk: SWITCH (Unsung)

​Finally braced myself to watch the profile episode. On a lighter note, is it just me or does Phillip (feather perm) seems like he was saying during the interview segment “oh that’s nothing..that’s just the half of it”! lmfao He was one of the funniest and candidly honest. There were some other funny highlights..Jody: “siiiiign the mathafacka!!”..lmfao!! I need to see the unedited interviews for the culture..lol I don’t wanna give away too much. On a musical note, Phillip was a great lead vocalist as well, I had no idea that was him all these years (it’s in the genes as well..look up: Ingram Kingdom). Tommy is indisputably a beast bass player.. he had some serious thumps on all those recordings. Looking back makes me appreciate them more. For the record and as a fellow historian who personally witnessed that era, “Best Beat In Town” was irrefutably one of their staple jams..everybody had to turn in a “Dance Record”..even Rock bands. Knock it off…that song was huge in the hood. I can’t allow shade to be thrown on one of the best party jams of all time. Dont be putting a remix on history…go get your old Billboard stats..ijs #switch #unsung #unique74

Members Only: PUSH | ONE WAY ft Al Hudson

“those were the days, when gangbangers wouldn’t shoot if there were women and children present.” – YT user

where you at LA ??!! sometimes I dont know..but what I do know…


Members Only: You Are The One | AM-FM

This was a huuuge record back east.. (WHERE YOU AT DC?!), it also had very minimal but strong “spins” for awhile here in LA. I went ape sh_t when I found the white label promo a few years ago during my travels..I dropped this one during the warm up set at our “Golden Stereo” event last week and Mr. Sly Stone’s b’day party at Zanzibar in LA a few month’s back. The sound system must be up to par in order to feel the effect of this song..Super Funk is always good to GO GO!!!

PS: Big shout to my homeslice Nikita.
