Since tomorrow is the official release of the new Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings record, Give The People What They Want, we thought we’d highlight one of our faves (for almost two decades) here at FMF. Way back when, I remember getting promo records when Sharon and the Dap Kings were just getting started. It was an instant love affair with the music and the Queen of Soul. With her recovery from cancer under way, and this new record just about out, she’s ready to pick up where she left off before her illness. Where is that you might ask? Taking over the world through her Soul of course! That’s why this mix is so special. Our man Chorizo Funk put together a second installment in his We Love mix series, and this time it’s a tribute to Sharon Jones. With a variety of styles from Sharon: upbeat B Boy Funk tracks to bluesy, soulful sides and more in between, Chroizo Funk also mixes in live tracks and interviews with Sharon and Gabe Roth throughout. A great way to get you into Sharon if you’re not familiar or reintroduce you to the brilliance of this band and their singer. Start your Monday of right with some Soul courtesy of Chorizo Funk and his tribute to Sharon Jones. Flea Market Funk approved.
