Preview: STRANGE GAMES & FUNKY THINGS VOL 5

Released: 2010-09-28 on BBE

Update: Moovmnt have uploaded the Spinna mix to listen to…

The Strange Games… series began in the summer of 1997, and has brought the blueprints for modern R&B and rap music to the attention of a generation as well as provided convenient instant crate digging knowledge. It joins the dots between 70s soul, 80s rare groove and 90s mass market hip hop. This compilation contains a wide variety of styles of tracks, from classic dance-floor fillers as well as lesser known delights. A more accessible diggers delight if you wish, with an emphasis on quality tracks and not just songs worth having for a 2 second sample.

Featuring a much more worldly selection than its predecessors – tracks by the multi platinum selling War to Sylvia ( Founder of Sugarhill Records) sit side by side with world music underground icons like C.K. Mann and Francisco Aguabella.

This volume is the 5th in a series of compilations that appears to have the widest appeal of all BBEs compilations and proves to be even better by the fact that there is a bonus mixed CD by the one and only Dj Spinna!
