Hahaha why long as hell? It's never too long when it's worth it.
I didn't pay attention to how long they were before I heard them other than Hood Pass Intact and Killdat aka Killdatmuthaf*cka (The latter is on GTA V on Worldwide FM), there's 24 songs and more than half are 5+ minutes (One of them is almost 10 minutes).
I don't know if it was already posted before but... funk it! I love the Gap Band. They were one of those funky bands with that party feel in their music. GTA San Andreas memories with You Dropped A Bomb On Me. I actually heard it first in the Next Friday movie around the years 2000 or 2001.
I Don't Believe You Want To Get Up And Dance (Oops, Up Side Your Head) - Snoop's Up Side Your Head.
I pity the fool who doesn't get down to this.
I love the bass line. This track is purely early 80's.
I actually heard it first in the Next Friday movie around the years 2000 or 2001.
I remember a Con Funk Shun song was on that movie, this one, at the beginning.
Ohio Players Funky Worm was on there too, as well as Mtume's Juicy Fruit, which both has been on a GTA (Bounce FM and Fever 105).
Oh yeah yeah I posted it a few months ago. I think the song was played right after the intro. The scene Debo got out of jail or broke out (I don't remember) and was looking for Graig. There was also the scene with that tiny dog.
Fever 105 is in Vice City and it plays Juicy Fruit. Also can be heard in Next Friday. It's the intro of the 12'' Extended Version. I thought back then that it was a brand new beat. Funky Worm is in San Andreas. Mtume has another track in GTA 4. I think it's Prime Time or You Me and He. Oh man I'm getting so nostalgic.
Rodney Lynn "Rod" Temperton (October 1947 – September/October 2016) was an English songwriter, record producer, and musician from Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, England. He initially made his mark as the keyboardist and main songwriter for the R&B funk/disco band >>>Heatwave<<< before writing several internationally known songs performed by Michael Jackson, including mega-hit "Thriller" as well as "Off the Wall", "Rock with You," and numerous others. His death from cancer was reported by his publisher on 5 October 2016, stating that he had died in the previous week and his funeral had already taken place.
Mr. Temperton "The Invisible Man" or Funky Groovy Rod, like I like to call him, was not really known by the mainstream public but among soul, funk and disco lovers, like me, he is. To me his works are phenomenal and he was a very talented songwriter and musician.
>>>May his funky groovy soul rest in paradise<<<
Here's a interesting and well documented 60 minutes interview of this unknown genius of music.
Dope track. First time I heard it it was in a mix with various unknown and hard to find 80's boogie funk. I thought that it sounded just like a genuine 1984 Synth Boogie.
Ameega is a really loving Funkateer. Member of the french copyright company SACEM, he is also a performer and choreographer. Born in Madagascar in 1964, he settles down in France in 1983. At the end of the 1970's he starts writing songs in an intense, compulsive and prolific way. He is also the founder of many Funk, Boogie, Soul and Tenor bands since 1980 in Madagascar and 1983 in France. He formed the band Ameega in 2002 whom he still performs with. He's stage name is AMIGA whereas his name as a producer is AMIGA LOBA.
I'm actually looking to ID the first one in this track. First one, that runs from intro to roughly 01:15. Any ideas?
It seems to be a remix of Mellow Mellow Right On, but doesn't quite have the same feel as the Cherokee version, so I'm curious if theres a mix of Mellow Mellow out or if Cherokee made a version just for the mixtape.
