“Late Night Workshop” started its life as a mix series where All Good Funk Alliance explored the deeper, sensual and more laid-back sides of Funk, Soul and Slow-mo Disco. As the series grew and Rusty B became more ingrosed in those sounds, he decided to start making his downtempo dreams a reality by putting his twist on classic tracks and elevated LNW from a mix series to an alias to make his new music under.
Sticking to 100bpm, Rusty has released over 20 low-slung jams so far and to make sure the funk alliance remains, his AGFA brother from another mother, Frank Cueto, has chipped in with additional production, mixing and mastering. With a fine selection of golden oldies and more recent tracks already receiving Rusty’s magic touch, we bring you his latest masterpiece which sees him take on Bizarre Inc‘s 90’s classic ‘”Playing With Knives”.
The fate-led redux featured came about while Rusty just happened to be having a scroll through Facebook and spotted a short video of DJ Love playing the evocative piano-hook. Instantly sparking an idea in his mind, Rusty sent him a message asking if he could play it at 100bpm and after agreeing to do so and sending it over, it was then joined by chunky Hip Hop led drums, vocal grabs and a swagger like no other. You can download it for free on the player above and a dig through the LNW back-catalogue on Soundcloud will result in you picking up more free goodies that are just as good as this one.
