In 1987 with the Family Funktion team (Norman Jay & Judge Jules) Femi Fem and Marco Nelson compiled the groundbreaking album ‘Got To Get Your Own (Some Rare Grooves)’ for Charly Records. This, and its follow up volume introduced us to a strange world of obscure singles on exotic sounding labels and gave us a glimpse of what went on with members of James Brown’s gang when they stepped away from the Boss.

Over the ensuing decades funk has been a thread through a number of emerging scenes, from acid jazz to the smartly named Deep Funk and was also mined relentlessly by hip hop and dance producers who were looking to the past, to create something for today. Some of these records, featured here, are now famed as classics of the genre by the likes of New Orleans producer Eddie Bo who became revered by collectors and found a new lease in life, and Lee Fields who has gone from being an obscure Carolinian artist to having his new recordings featured on TV programmes.

Deep Fried Funk is the descendant of those earlier Charly compilations and begins its journey with some ever-green cuts that have remained popular ever since that time. It also gathers together records from Chicago to New Orleans with many points in-between to deliver a comprehensive overview of some of the greatest, sweatiest funk ever made. Get ready to dance!
