So Much Soul presents ‘The Funky Drummers’ Part 1 (Crunkies Pick) mixed by Chris Read

PrintI’ve got a new mix up on Mixcloud presented in association with So Much Soul. Here’s the lowdown:

“The name gives a lot away here – a mix of the world’s funkiest drummers – 100 or so of Funk, Soul, Rock & Jazz’s finest breakbeats and licks in a 20 minute mix! A labour of love which started life some years ago, the mix comes in two parts with two different versions of each (one with all the trimmings, one with just the drums!). I decided it was about time I finally made it available and will be uploading it in parts over the coming weeks / months. There will also be a double CD offering with an exclusive bonus mix coming soon.

The subtitle ‘Crunkies Pick’ refers to Cut Chemist’s drum heavy ‘Bunky’s Pick’ cut up and J-Rocc’s similarly styled ‘Junkies Pick’ to which (along with Steinski’s seminal ‘Lesson’ edits) this is an homage of sorts.”
