Jungle Boogie – Kool And The Gang

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo

This is a monster hit from Kool And The Gang from 1973. You know the one. A Tarzan yell, grunting and shuffling. Some earthy funk. You can hear the literally hear the shapes you need to make.

For a ‘tash you have to go one degree of separation with me. Jungle Boogie was featured on the closing credits of Pulp Fiction (alongside Dick Dale’s Miserlou). Samuel L Jackson has a moustache in the film. Hey, it’s late in November and I’m struggling.

Bonus track: that Dick Dale monster (ripped up by Black Eyed Peas)

*GUEST POST*

In 1979 the stars aligned and Bill Williams, Bobby Love, Joe Fornis, Horn Arr and Maceo Jackson joined together to form Bileo, producing this absolute gem of a track. Originally released in 1979, this wonderful, massive, feel good, up-tempo, disco-funk belter somehow existed under the radar for much of the next 30 years.

There’s some debate about who gets the lion’s share of the credit for dragging this song out of the shadows and into a DJ set near you. Floating Points and Four Tet dropping it at the closing of Plastic People in 2015, MCDE during his instant classic 2014 Dekmantel set. All I know is, I’m glad it’s in my life.

My Lady – Crusaders (Purple Disco Machine Re-Edit)

Purple Disco Machine is another that can be a bit hit or miss. This one is a bona fide hit. He’s given a funky re-rub to one of Crusaders’ biggest hits from back in the 70s. Where once it was jazz fusion, now it is full of dancefloor energy and cascading piano. Enjoy.

Moodymann – Moodymann

Moodymann is a bit of a freak, and he wants you to know it. He makes sultry, loose grooves from Detroit, and they’ll get you going nicely. Highlights on this 27-track monster of an album are Lyk 2 Use 2 and Freeki Muthafucka. But really, this album is best listened to as a whole – let yourself drift and float and groove.
