As I’m travelling to Spain over the weekend where I’ll be guesting at a couple of different nights, I thought it would tie-in rather well if I brought you a nice little piece of Spanish funk this week.
Those of you that have already listened to my 10p mix-up on Mixcloud should recognise this track (and those that haven’t – what are you waiting for??). It’s by the pretty well-known (in Spanish terms anyway) Los Chorbos. I described it as Spanish funk, but to be fair it’s more than just funk, there’s traditional Spanish guitar in there which combined with the electric guitar gives it also quite a psychedelic sound. Rodrigo Y Gabriella’s sound seems to me to have been very much influenced by tracks like this.
Anyway as I’ll be on holiday for a couple of weeks, this will probably be my last update until I come back. However – I touched on the fact that I had some exciting news to bring you in my last update, well I can tell you that not only will you be getting my funky updates every week as usual, but I’ve lined up some great guest contributors to bring you something cool from their own collection.
We’ll have some of the world’s biggest soul & funk collectors as well as radio djs, band members & label owners. So keep it real & adios amigos!
