Funk - Fallin' Off The Reel vol. 1

I could not get to my computer fast enough to write this. I love this type of funk and breakbeat soul and El Michels Affair are laying it down proper. A group of young kids playing classic instrumental funk from the 70's, these guys have it down. I discovered them on what I thought was re-issue vinyl and started looking for the original, only to find out it was the original and has only been out for a year. My favourite note is that they worked with Raekwon from Wu-Tang Clan and produced 4 classic Wu cuts, instrumental-styleee of course.

The whole record is worth getting and is great for parties. It's a compilation with 10 artists from the 'Truth & Soul' label in NYC.

Sounds Like: The Meters, The Bar-Kays, David Axelrod, The Poets of Rhythm, any old breakbeat 45
