Since I have been doing The FMF Guest Mix Series, I have been amassing a bunch of new choons ( I can’t say that enough) and Lps that I’ve been dying to put on mixes. Before I get into the mix, I want to say a HUGE “Thank You” to all the people that have contributed to the Series so far. The mixes have been eclectic and on point. There are a few more left, so they’ll be dropped each Monday until the well is dry…until next year. I released the Summer Special last year, so in keeping with the Summer vibe, here is FMF Vol. 29: Frank ‘N Beans. Everyone needs a mix that they can play while it’s warm, and this is the kick off here at FMF. This particular mix I believe is a great jump start to your Summer season, with healthy portions of Latin, Brazilian, Deep Funk, Funky Soul, Hammond sides, and well, Bill Cosby. This is just a drop in the bucket. I have a large amount of stuff I’ve been kind of holding back, which includes a Latin Mix I have been dying to get out ( go over to Funky 16 Corners to get Larry’s great Spanish Grease mix for another Summertime fix), perfect for a BBQ or a Summer drive. That being said, put on your flip flops, grab a beer or a cold drink, sit on your porch or in your favorite chair, and dig in to the 29th installment of Flea Market Funk.
