So, I’ve long been a fan of Fulgeance, which led me to Souleance – his side projcet with DJ Soulist. They have a new one out this week, called, simply, ‘Le Beat Tape.’
It’s funky music made by and for DJs. Something to go with their other old vinyl music. Its soulful, funky, and just fun sample-heavy material. So, since going green is the name of the game these days, go download these recycled-funk jams and crunk the funk out with Souleance and their unique and original ReFUNKontexualization of old vinyl music. Yea, kind of a stupid word. Hmm… Ah well.
I enjoy this release, in all its crunchy, organny, synthy vintage splendor. Fun and random vocal samples and big retro breakbeats that would give Fatboy Slim an erection, ‘Le Beat Tape’will make you want to dance like it was 1999, when people were trying to dance like it was 1979.
The whole record is 20 tracks long, but here are a few of them, for a preview – (and also, click HERE for an MP3!)
