Two of the most iconic hip hop breakbeats to come from the legendary New York label, Salsoul Records, on one newly remastered 7-inch single. Instant Funk's "The Funk Is On," produced by Randy Muller (Brass Construction, Skyy, etc.), is not only a tough disco tune but contains one of the great old school b-boy breaks halfway through. The floor-filling classic is presented here in the full-length album version for the first time on 7-inch. Also making its debut on 7-inch is Gaz's "Sing Sing" break, a bubbly midtempo groove that has been much sampled in recent years by everyone from Wu Tang Clan to Kylie Minogue. The full break has never been available on 7-inch and is making its debut here in a DJ-friendly edit by The Undercover Brother.
Cherries takes you far into Arizona deserts w/deep sultry sounds of live disco/funk band. 2 4-on-the-floor jams. (A) bassline driven night groove, w/gospel style harmonies of Mama Kat over magical guitar licks of Jomeo. (B) uptempo strutter.
Highly sought-after promo from 1977. 8 1/2 mesmerising minutes of hypnotic slow-building disco-funk which became an anthem at Mancuso's Loft parties, +'Tasty Cakes' & 'Turn This Mutha Out' as sampled by Moodymann.
