CHRISPOP: Got To Get Some/ Just Get Up (2014)

Got To Get Some Just Get Up ChrispopFunky breaks…got some? Don’t worry if you haven’t. Chrispop‘s here to provide a surfeit to cover your shortage as he resurrects the lost art of the ’80s megamix’ to suture together the likes of JB, Aerosmith, the Bongo Band, Lyn Collins, Kool & The Gang and Bad Bascombe, for Got To Get Some. Over on the ‘flip’ the megamix fun continues with Just Get Up‘s Funkinstein-like creation of Gwen McCrae, JB (again), this year’s third (at least) sampling of Afrika Bambataa’s Just Get Up And Dance, more Bongo Band and what sounds like a G Love & Special Sauce sample at the start. Not the rarest syncopated percussive gems to make it onto wax admittedly, and far from the least sampled but certainly some of the biggest. Arms will wave. Feet will move…
(Out 28 February on Relative Dimensions)
