DJ House Shoes mixt Dennis Coffey’s History Of Funk

Gitarrist Dennis Coffee war einer verlässlichsten Musiker für das Abliefern von Drum-Breaks und Samples für die HipHop-Djs. Strut erinnert daran jetzt mit einer Plattenveröffentlichung und einem Teaser Mix zusammengestellt von DJ House Shoes. „Dennis Coffey“, das neue Solo-Album, wird am 26. April auf Strut veröffentlicht.

Constellations – The A to Z of Dennis Coffey: A Mix By House Shoes by Strut

Strut schreibt:

Leading up to the foundational Motor City guitarist’s new self-titled solo album, Detroit’s own House Shoes takes us on a journey through Dennis Coffey’s history of funk. Including the psychedelic b-boy soul of Coffey’s 70’s solo material, classic recordings on which he recorded as a sessions musician, hip-hop cuts which have sampled his material, and even a couple of sneak peaks at the new album’s music, Constellations is 45 minutes of straight heat, mixed by a master DJ intimately acquainted with Coffey’s legacy, and his future.

Touching on everything from the psychedelic b-boy soul of Coffey’s 70’s solo material, to classic recordings on which he recorded as a sessions musician, to hip-hop cuts which have sampled his material, and even a couple of sneak peaks at the new album’s music, he offers as clear a portrait as any of way Dennis Coffey is beloved by so many music fans of all varieties. His drop game is tough too! We were also happy to hear how comfortably the new material sits next to Coffey’s many classics. If that’s not the mark of timelessness, I don’t know what is! As everyone from Q-Tip to JakeOne to DJ Jazzy Jeff are happy to remind you: Dennis Coffey will be out April 26th.
