Straight outta the archives, producer/deejay James McDurt compiles a super funk-intensive holiday hip-hop mix for everyone. The 28 track mix covers a wide range of genres and eras so be prepared for a whole lot of cool stuff. It’s crazy how he can go from De la Soul to Otis Redding to Bootsy Collins to GFK in the same breath. This is pretty fresh if you ask me.
Hit the play button right away and thank me later.
Dutch-based deejay/producer James McDurt decided to give away a little holiday treat. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t go well on the usual Christmas crooners by Michael Bolton & Wham!, this might be the ideal soundtrack to help you transition into the yuletide spirit.
Aptly titled, James McDurt’s Funky Fresh Christmas Mix, this 50 minute continuous mixtape, features some Old-school Hip-Hop by the likes of Run DMC, Eazy-E, Kurtis Blow & The Treacherous Three, as well as several current mainstay emcees such as, Ghostface Killah, Outkast & Busta Rhymes. Last but not least, this holiday dish is topped off by some retro Soul and Funk by The Jackson 5, James Brown, The Whispers, Otis Redding & more… enjoy!
