After the unveiling of their Future Bass compilation - something of an emphatic compilation of exactly that, future bass music (including producers like Distal, Randomer and Untold amongst others) – Soul Jazz Records are outing a similar collection of UK Funky. Not so obsessed with that next shit, Riddim Box is a 2 CD collection of classic dancefloor cuts that epitomise the club sound of funky - much like their previous series Box Of Dub of Steppah’s Delight have done.
Being compiled by Alex Stevenson (whose name you might recall from our interview around the release of the Brownswood Electr*c compilation) and Deep Medi’s Kris Jones it features a lot of cuts you might have missed like the instrumental of Donae’o’s ‘African Warrior’ or Zumen and Aaron Phiri’s ‘Rolexx,’ as well as some classic scene starters like Hardhouse Banton’s ‘Sirens’ and Kode9’s ‘Black Sun.’
Titled after the NB Funky track of the same name, which features on CD1, it’s been put together with love and a dedication to getting the order and styling just right. Put simply it’s a succinctly stylized snapshot of the sound of 2010, some of that raw, snare heavy dance music that has infected almost every dance in the last 12 months.
The good news is we’ve been given 3 copies to give away. To win a copy just email us the answer to the following question by 8th November.
