Early 1970s Funk That Rumbles And Rolls
|By AMIR SAID (SA’ID)|
Whenever I hear an early funk number like Willie Henderson’s “Off Into A Black Thing,” I always imagine what it was like for the original b-boys (early/mid-1970s) to hear this music, and just simply go buck wild on the dance floor. Energy! It’s that same energy that I try to channel into my approach to beatmaking. After all, when you come down to it, it is the source of what I do.
