Dance Classic Of The Week: The Beginning Of The End - Funky Nassau Pt 1 and 2

Today sees the launch of a new weekly feature on RW/FF, two new features in fact. Every Saturday, dance/electronica expert and Frome FM DJ Jason B will be sharing his recommendations, picking an old track and a new track. Like his new Frome FM's Dance Classics show, this feature looks at dance music in its various forms throughout the ages. 

This one definitely falls into the category marked 'funk', although its arrangement and rhythm has a Latin edge. Both parts of 'Funky Nassau' are taken from the 1971 album of the same name. This single reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, and 31 in the UK Singles Chart. Interestingly, part of this song was sampled by the Prodigy on 'No Good (Start The Dance)'... 

Jason B hosts Frome FM's Dance Classics every first Saturday of the month on Frome FM at 10pm. The show is repeated on the previous Thursday night at 10pm. Those of you lucky enough to live in Frome can pick it up on 96.6FM, otherwise listen online at www.frome.fm
