Today we bring you a sweet treat all the way from Paris via Brooklyn. Friend of the site and impeccable digger and DJ Danny Akalepse has been on a European tour for the last few weeks and he stopped by Lemellotron to drop one of his signature sets. Lemellotron have been putting a variety of DJs from all over the world on their show to play live for more than a minute, and it’s cool to hear a set from one of BK’s finest. Filled with some great funk, soul, hip hop and more, ‘lepse drops a lovely set that takes you on a ride through sweet songs, hard drum breaks, and more. We have always been a fan of his work with the Truth & Soul label, and if you haven’t got a chance to see him live, here’s a chance to at least hear…

Flea Market Funk


JJ-Whitfield-Polaroid_470

This week we have a real treat in our Big Ups series. If you are a fan of Modern Funk and Soul, or the artists who are making music (recording in the same manner as well) as a lot of these long, forgotten funky artists, then you have to give JJ Whitefield a huge thanks. Without this man, there would be no Truth & Soul and there would be no Daptone Records and those that followed, there would be no Funk and Soul music scene from the 1990’s on. JJ Whitefield and Bo Baral put out the 1993 classic Practice What You Preach record by their band The Poets of Rhythm. Channeling their inner Meters and JB’s among others, this record set the bar for the new Funk and Soul movement in the United States and lead the charge to the frenzy it is today. Real music played the way…
