It was the American writer and musician Drew Daniel who said that “electronic music was meant to make people work.” How many times have you hit a playlist and worked throughout the day? Well, if electro gets people working, then funk has got to get people creative. Here is an hour-long stream from the True Groove All-Stars, who just released this soul compilation earlier this month. Produced by Tomás Doncker, the “soul man” known for spreading the word of gospel soul as far as China, there is also Grammy award-winning producer and bassist Bill Laswell (Mick Jagger, Bob Marley, Miles Davis). “Sexy Cutie” by Charlie Funk is a flashback to the late 1970s, reminding us that retro is never enough. They’ve nailed it.
