The Guest List:

Pete Collison from The Fantastics - 'Pete's Mix'

A real treat for you on the guest list this time round kids and it comes from top funky dude Pete Collison. Guitarist with The Fantastics and one third of Captain Hammond's sound, his work has popped up here, there and everywhere on the site in the last few years. You'll find him all over the Promo page and there was an interview with the band a while back (keep scrolling on the Interviews page and you'll find it). It's a pretty special mix and I just know you're gonna dig it. Be sure to check Pete out at the links below. Thanks for your patience Mr.C !

The Guest List:

Natty Vader's 'SoundSystem Vol.2'

It's a Vibratonic / Funklab moment. Natty Vader has delivered a mix where the reggae and the funk meet perfectly in the middle of soulsville...which is nice! I've only ever dabbled in some 60's ska and a touch of two-tone in my mixes so surprisingly these are the first reggae tracks 'proper' to hit the player. Which by the way is updated and back on track (excuse the awful pun). Serious'ISH'ly though, the whole point of the guest list is that it's not what I'd do (there's more than enough of that knocking about so what would be the point). Check out the Casserole Music, Soulico and  Planet Mondo mixes for more eclectic moments that demonstrate what I mean. I really like the fact that the guest list is a bit of an exploration in discovery and rediscovery. Particularly liking the versions of 'Mercy' and 'Crazy' on here...inspired! I'm diggin' it cos to my ears it's different and yet still definitely The Right Side Of Funky! Hopefully Mr.D will follow this up with a full funk mix of his own (fingers crossed peeps), thanks to him as ever for the chance and Natty Vader of course for the mix. Be sure also to check Mr.D's answers over on the interviews page. Hope you like it kids, rant over... be good 'til next time!

 'A Message From The SoulSistas! - A Mix by HeavySoulBrutha

Happy days funky folks. My number one soul brutha has stepped up to the mark with a fantastic offering. Ram-packed full of soulful divas and funkier than a month of sundays, this one's a must. HeavySoulbrutha is one of my inspirations in starting The Right Side Of Funky (the other being DJ Blueprint and 'This Is Tomorrow' ) so you have to check out his blog 'Put The Needle On The Record' as soon as you can, and if you download this little beauty you won't be able to resist. This fella's got seriously good taste in music and a seemingly endless supply of raw funky soul on vinyl. Nice eh? Muchos respect and thanks to Dave for jumping on board The Right Side in such a stella stylee, absolutely love the intro brutha and that's exactly where the name/alter ego came from (as I'm sure he was responsible for yours too).

Planet Mondo's 'Rockadoodledoo!'

Get in and get loose guys n gals, ecetera, und zeweiter, et la 'whatever it is en francais'  ....this is the cheekiest result ever! 

We do have a selection in the bag for you devoted groovers  but time and motion accompanied by general socialising has prevented it's delivery. The same can NOT be said for Planet Mondo.....we got cheeky and he delivered! This dude is a legend as far as we're concerned - he introduced us to 'bastard pop' and that's a concept even one's girlfriend can't take on board don't ya know. That said my brothers love it...and so do hers!. This mix is as mad as you'd expect  and obviously just a little bit more,,,it's the Mondo show for funk's sake! Big love , deep respect and proper man hugs  to Dave  for bringing his eclectasism (which I'm sure isn't a word or the right way to spell it but ya get my drift cos you am funkee peeps)  to the show once again!  I owe you big time Mr.Zonko! x

 Melting Pot 3rd Anniversary Sampler

The lovely people from Lanarkshire’s premier mod nights Melting Pot have been kind enough to lay some serious grooves on us. They are currently based at Starka in Motherwell playing once a month and there’s a very tasty buzz about it. This is only one half of a fantastic selection so you know these nights must be cracking chaps! All the DJ’s have their moment on here (Ally, Craig, John, Matt, Scott and Stuart) so you can tell how diverse these occasions must be. There’s also a cheeky bonus track on the end from a local band that you are gonna love people! Makes you wanna head up there eh? Why don’t you? Many thanks to all at Melting Pot for sharing their thang and a special thanks to modmum for doing all the legwork (sorry it took so long to post).

Another guest mix. El Sprucho from Fajita Funk hosts a fantastic show on  Futurebeat Radio and thanks to his kind offer, this was my contribution. It aired on Monday the 26th of May fact fans (which seems about a year ago to me) and I’m very thankful to have played a part in it cos it’s a great listen folks (my mix aside of course)! I did say I’d post it a while back (as its a ‘proper mix’ and I dont often go there) but unfortunately, due to moving home and a complete pc wipeout…I lost it!! That’s why this is as aired because fortunately a friend recorded it live (or something, if that makes sense - things ‘air’ live don’t they?…you know what I mean anyway). Phew!!

‘Another Fufu Funk Fix’

You lucky people! The Soul Chef has been busy cooking up some funky delights for us and his kitchen must look like a bomb’s hit it cos this is a funky soul explosion! He is a very busy man at the moment so I’d like to send him some huge thanks (and congratulations) and wish him much, much happiness!  Fufu Stew is always a must, I really dig The Chef’s mixes and he has such an ear for a tune my funky friends that it’s very nearly frightening. He’s been kind enough to indulge me and do the Q&A too so be sure to read on and find out more about him. If you haven’t already you must check out his fantastic blog Fufu Stew (yet another of the inspirations to start this little page) and as The Chef himself  would say….enjoy!

‘I am proud to present Soulico’s new mixtape titled Archeology
It’s an hour full of Hasidic Disco, Spiritual Soul, Yemenite Funk, Turkish Acid Rock, Arabic Jazz & much more, all recorded & released in Israel by local musicians & artists in the 70’s and early 80’s.
95% of the tunes were never reissued on CD and were kind of obscure even when they originally came out.
This is the result of a decade of digging in Tel-Aviv’s record shops & Flea markets…Enjoy’
