2015 three CD set. Ministry of Sound presents Downtown Funk, a collection of one our most loved music genres. With the sun just around the corner what better album to get your groove on and heat things up for the imminent summer ahead than Downtown Funk. A major influence on disco, funk music is a sound familiar to all which has been heavily sampled in dance related genres including hip hop, house and drum 'n' bass not to mention featuring in countless iconic film soundtracks (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Shaft to name but a few). Of late, the sound has had a huge pop resurgence and looks set to be one of the sounds of 2015. The essential tunes from your favorite artists all feature including James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, the Academy Award winning 'Theme from Shaft' by Isaac Hayes, James Taylor Quartet with the 'Theme from Starsky & Hutch', Curtis Mayfield, Chic, Bobby Womack, Bobby Byrd, Sly & The Family Stone, Bill Withers, Funkadelic, The Jackson Sisters, The Isley Brothers, The Fatback Band and Aretha Franklin to mention just a few. 60 tracks of grooves and cuts that defined an era, from Stateside to Southport, these are the records that provided the soundtrack to a generation. So go uptown to get downtown funk!
