Groovement Premiere / Funky Chimes: Belgian Grooves From The 70s – Leslie Kent’s Inner City Blues

A brand new compilation of Belgian 70s funk is dropping on 2 June on SDBAN Records (also home to the very excellent STUFF.), celebrating 27 rare and long forgotten Belgian gems infused with jazz, latin and more. It’s a sequel to the label’s well-respected comp Funky Chicken from 2014, which started a renewed interest in the Belgian soul scene, and this release demanded even more adventurous digging on the part of the compilers.

Groovement is very happy to present a listen to Lelsie Kent’s version of Inner City Blues, originally released a year after the 1971 original.
