OK! You are the official funkmaster. :) It blows my mind how you can make a remix of so many people in the same track. Just an incredible groove. If I heard this on the radio I seriously would have said it was JB.
Thanks, Copperhead. Sometimes we just have to funk it.
As Panu pointed out, this is a period piece with a few modern sounds included. Always wanted to play Tower of Power and James Brown tunes on stage but never worked in bands that played those grooves and had the horn section. In my project studio, we are able to create some original grooves to make up for lost funk.

More Parliament than James Brown in my ears. Regardless of the references, a great great funk track.
Thanks for listening, FB.
I am not as familiar with P’funk and George Clinton as I am with Tower of Power and EWF. However, if the music sounds like Parliament, then great. They be funky.
I was seeking to create a cross between Tower of Power like funk with some James Brown-like shouts/funk guitar, and some original funk rhythms and breaks. Wrt the distorted guitar passage that’s a trance rhythm to break up the funk.

I love this old skool style funk. I don’t know where you’ve sourced your pallet of samples/sounds from but they all sounds great and blend together smoothly. The skippy around of underlying rhythm styles is a good idea too.
Sound pallet: Besides the 16 sound sources listed and tracks we recorded ourselves, there are another dozen or more samples/loops used that don’t require attribution. Created some loops/beats myself and was able to find some great royalty free funk loops on the Internet. Didn’t find any suitable, free and legal James Brown loops, however.

It’s taking me a while to get around to listening to the goodies I missed while I was on holiday in LA (showing off again). No wonder Sack chose this as her Ed Pick. It’s f***ing brilliant!
