The Brand New Heavies – People Get Ready (Funkafied Gettin’ Funky Edit)
Funkafied is a Dutch duo that we’ve never had on the ward before, as an actual duo that is. We say this because one half of this A-Team is one of our favourite Funk, Soul and Disco producers Ronny Hammond, whose music we’ve featured many times. The other member of the team is Rafadelic, who is slightly less prolific on the music front, except when he gets sat down with his good friend Ronny that is!
When they do sit down to make music, you can expect to hear them mixing and mashing tracks from back in the day to present day with Funk being the backbone to all they play and create. One of their infamous mashups is actually where we join them with the track posted. The Brand New Heavies ‘People Get Ready’ has been given a funky reboot, with the groove dialled up and a feel good feel that’s impossible not to love. Also featuring on the track are sample cuts from Lenny Henry, Kid n Play and James Brown no less, which makes for an unexpected but interesting and enjoyable trip.
If these guys are new to you, go check out their other mashups and mixes and get funked up on their music.
