Grant Phabao & Djouls - Funk With Kids
(MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) T.I.M.E.C., 2008-01-19

Info :
A mix that's been nearly a year in preparation, a mix that started with the best 'Funk For Kids' dispositions, but ended in a 'Funk WITH Kids' way all grown-ups should enjoy too. We've been digging for months for those kiddie funk tracks, and thanks to the "ABC's of Kid Soul" compilation recently released by the Numero Group (ditributed by the friendly Differ-Ant people over here in France), we've finally managed to round up quite a surprising soundtrack of electic grooves with kids (or choirs of kids) singing...

Also a special big-up to Medeski Martin & Wood's new album of music for kids on Little Monster Records, 'Let's Go Everywhere', which showcases the versatility of our favorite jazz band out there. You'll aslo find John Medeski playing keyboards along with Steven Bernstein (from Sex Mob) on trumpet and Sharon Jones on vocals (with a few others...) on the 'Baby Loves Jazz' album - one that all parents should get when they get tired of FM Radio and other kinds of debilitating kids music, one that will ravish the youngsters in the backseat!

Finally, everybody must know the Justice 'D.A.N.C.E.' track by now, but we've taken the liberty of playing just before this one a bit of the track that must have inspired such a worldwide single, the MASSIVE hit from Erik Rug and MC Dynamax, remixed by L'Aroye & Kÿ, 'Tribute To My People'. If you don't own this 12 inch yet, find yourself a new record supplier cos' this was THE track of 2006. Nuff' said.
