I’ve put a mix together that breaks down the genre barrier and connects music from, in this case, 8 countries from 4 different continents. ‘Connecting Flight’ mixes together funk, salsa, bossa funk, brazilian & ska tunes from countries such as Germany, Panama, Nigeria and St. Lucia in a way that, hopefully, you don’t even realize that you’ve just travelled through 4 continents in just under 50 minutes. I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I had making it.

A BIG shout out to DJ Double K of Parkdale Funk who has kindly offered to post the ‘Connecting Flight’ mix as Part 1 of his ‘Toronto Funk Series’ and to give me the opportunity to share some music with his readers. If you haven’t already, make sure you go and check out his wicked website with enough podcasts to keep you busy til next year. The man knows his funk & Soul, and better yet…he’s willing to share it.

Mike James Kirkland – Hang on in There (Bryan, USA)
The Phenomenal Handclap Band – I Been Born Again (Truth & Soul, USA)
