Mocambo is notorious for their killer Funk 45s that have become a favourite of prestigious DJs, ambitious collectors and music lovers worldwide. While the first label compilation sported the highlights of their first, sold-out vinyl 7“ releases, this sampler is a fine selection of new & previously unreleased material. Most of the tracks were originally composed for use in movie and television film scores and not for commercial release. Mocambo is very proud to offer these gems to connaisseurs and true vinyl lovers.
As the title „Cinematic Funk“ suggests, the music has more to it than just the usual 45 sound. From the grand opening theme, to quirky, heavy street soul, sweet love themes, moody downtempo jazz, psychedelic B-movie sitar grooves, chilled and spaced out tunes to blaxploitation car chase sceneries, the cream of Europe’s funk bands like James Taylor Quartet, Speedometer, Sound Stylistics, Delta Rhythm Section and the Mighty Mocambos deliver a broad variety of film-inspired funk styles.
Sit back, relax, listen to these hip sounds and create your own movie in your head to the score of Mocambo’s CINEMATIC FUNK.
