Recently I came across a comp I've been hearing about: Funk Spectrum: Real funk for real people. The latter consists of 3 volumes, mixed by pete rock, keb dargie, dj shadow, and josh davis.

Upon first listening, I wasn't overly impressed, it struck me as an album with a few very good tracks, some decent tracks, and lots of "fillers". I decided to cut alot of the tracks, and post ones I felt had a really good quality and feel. The songs that were left are hard, groovy funk tracks, ones that a funk connoisseur, or dj will certainly appreciate.

Give the comps a listen and leave your comments.
