Come along for a ride on that ‘Funky Taxi’

Sly & Robbie to release funk album

Who’s ready to take a ride on the Funky Taxi?  That’s right, the riddim twins are currently in the studio recording an album of funkdafied standards that includes well-known tunes by the likes of George Clinton, Sly and the Family Stone, Mtume, and the Dazz band just to name a few.  Looks to be another Taxi/Tabou1 collaboration, the same that brought you last year’s Dubrising LP, my pick for best reggae album of the year.

The tracks revisit early 80’s funk and boogie hits but with a twist:  brand new lyrics.  I’ve heard several of the Jamaican mixes and they are a significant yet brilliantly-produced departure from the originals.  The album, which features mixes produced by the likes of Godwin Logie, John Morales AKA John the Mixer, and Discobox HiFi, is due out next year.
