It’s that time of the year, and I just wanted to say thanks for a great year here at Fleamarket Funk. I’ve met a lot of really great people, done some great gigs, and will tell you that 2008 is going to be even better. On a personal level, I’d really like to thank these people (in no particular order): The entire Asbury Park 45 Sessions crew (DJ Prime, M.Fasis, Connie T. Empress, Jack the Ripper, DJ Bluewater, Devil Dick, Jay Boxcar) and a huge shout out to Larry from Funky 16 Corners. This guy has been a mentor as well as an inspiration here at FMF. A really humble guy who’s wealth of Funk and Soul knowledge can not be measured. Here’s a guy who has no ego and is happy to share what he knows with anyone. He’s been a great friend and confidant this past year and I really appreciate it. Thanks my man. To all the guests I’ve had: DJ Save 1, DJ Cool Hands Luke, and Vincent from FuFu Stew, you guys are great people as well as good DJs. Thank you for coming out. To my man DJ Andy Smith: great to finally hang and do some Jersey digging, I will be in London in 2008 for sure, so I’m looking forward to hitting up some secret UK spots. To all my fellow bloggers who have shown me love by way of links, mix collaborations or whatever: Thank you for letting a newbie do his thing. Much appreciated. Lastly I’d like to thank my wife for putting up with all my record bullshit, she is a champ. Thank you baby.
I’m gonna be taking some time off of the blog for the holidays to catch up with family and friends, so see you in 2008! Here’s some Otis Redding to cap the year off. Cheers! Remember to always Keep Diggin’!
