Gazfunk DJ Slot – Friday 14 August, Voodoo Belfast

Snap! Poster

Yes, yes y’all I’m delighted to be able to announce the return of one of Ireland’s most legendary mod clubs – Snap!. Featuring the original djs from the club, playing the best in soul, funk, psych, latin, hammond and other groovy bits and bobs. At this moment in time it’s only a one-off but who knows whether there may be more dates in the future….

Hindal Butts - In The Pocket

With that in mind the record I have decided to feature for you this week probably best falls under the description “mod funk”. This may not be a particular genre that you are aware of – and may well only be used by a small number of people but to me it’s those instrumental records that have a mod jazz style with hammond and heavier drums and some funk elements.

Hindal Butts was a session drummer from Detroit who released a small number of singles  – this one on the M-S Records label in 1967. This is the sort of vibe you can expect if you come to Snap! – so hopefully I might see a few of you there, it’s going to be a cracker!!
