Why isn't this kind of music talked about more? Is it because it's popular and black?
>>
>>50314829
It's because it doesn't have any subgenres
>>
>>50314810
Nice, never usually see anyone talking modern funk like these, heard this?

>>50314829
Its not reviewed by Pitchfork or Fantano and Scaruffi is a racist.
>>
>>50314829
Hip-Hop is already there to suply the R&B needs
>>
>>50314886
>Its all made by black people so it all sounds the same
>>
>>50314859
Yes I have. I actually own the 2 seven inches they released. They still containt the best songs. Just love the Fela Kuti cover (comencemos)

Yes! Craig Charles is the shit!

>>50314998
You can buy their album from juno downloads or listen to it via spotify. Sorry, but no idea where to dl it for free...
>>
>>50315089
thanks! i'll buy it from juno downloads
>>
>>50314681
Gil Scott-Heron - Pieces of a Man
Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul
>>
If you like funk, reggae and afrobeat I recommend that you check out http://www.parisdjs.com/ . They have lots of free dl albums also!

The still small funk scene in europe is growing fast! Too bad New Mastersounds migrated from GB to USA before I got to see them live.
>>
Top soul/funk single compilations, /mu/? Obscurity is preferred. I don't want to double dip.
>>
>>50315301
Dunno any but the ones ITT and the main Motown ones etc
>>
I'd heartily recommend the entirety of Tyrone Davis' discography (there's a compilation album, 'The Ultimate Tyrone Davis', which is actually a fantastic representation of his work). Also take a look at Regional Garland if you haven't already; Raphael Saadiq obviously; Anthony Hamilton's earlier albums; Jose James' two recent records if you like D'Angelo...

I've got to rush off anyway but I'll post some more specific/obscure stuff later on.
>>
>>50314571
Is that a picture of chuck berry?
>>
what do you guys think of kimbra?
considering shes a fusion of soul and funk
>>
What are some other labels for modern stuff like Freestyle Records and Daptone Records?
>>
>>50316139
Not bad, prefer nu soul singers like Kinny, Andreya Triana, Skye, Alice russell, Kylie Auldist, I should listen to more Kimbra probably

I'm not that much into funk/soul/rnb, i know the basics, but man, I am so grateful for posts like this. I follow soulful house mostly, tried searching for modern soul things myself but i hit the wall every time and give up.
Thanks Anon, you made a person happy.
>>
>>50316381
No problem, turnys upload not mine

You should have a look on discogs at labels like Daptone, Ubiquity Records, Dunham, Rawking Cuts and similar.

>>50316140
Tru Thoughts maybe?
