Strut + Soundway = Ton O’ Funk

Here’s a toast to people who make my life easier. To the like minded enablers who allow my fiendish appetite for new music to rage out of control. To the people who dig for gold around the world and don’t hesitate in sharing the love. To the people behind Strut & Soundway (two of my favorite labels), here’s a big fat CHEERS! These labels have been putting out solid releases for years and show no signs of slowing down. Today’s playlist comes from just a few of their most recent releases: classic nuyorican Latin sabor, Afrobeat gems, Disco dancefloor fuel, Colombian roots music and Panamanian soul. Go cop the full albums and support the people who keep feeding us funk.
