Hot Pants Road: An All Funk & Soul Dance Party #JerseyCity

Real Thing Sampler MixTo coincide with our new funk and soul party Hot Pants Road here in Jersey City on February 6th at The Citizen, we have put together an all live, 45 RPM mix of music you’ll hear if you come to the party. It’s a hearty mix of raw funk and soul, northern, some modern tracks, and assorted funky nuggets for your listening pleasure. I’ll be joined this time by Pat James Longo, aka Primitive Sound System who will be laying down a heavy set of tunes from his endless crates. We will be writing up a full report on the party in the weeks to come. However, if you’d like to get your groove on early, practice some dance steps, and get on your own dance floor early, The Real Thing will help you. This mix was recorded live in all one take using all 45 RPM records. Please enjoy it in all of its pop and click, and even a skip glory. You don’t have a second chance to do it live, so deal with it. Stay tuned for more info about the party. Tri-State area, mark your calendars for February 6th, it’s gonna be a funky good time.
