The mighty James Brown is probably the biggest influence when it comes to raw funk and soulful music. JB has sadly left us now but his music will live on forever! This is where GAMM steps in? they have put together a tribute series where they "have a little fun" with the great man's musical history - asking some of their favourite producers from around the world to dig deep in their JB's vinyl crates for inspiration, and interpret the man in any way they want. The results are truly amazing, these re-works and remixes are some of the finest productions you've ever heard on GAMM. The styles vary from hip hop, breaks, house, Baltimore club, r&b, broken beats and of course raw uncut funk, but always with a James Brown lick and of course that special GAMM feel.
