SummaryIn the past four years, Now-Again Records has gone beyond the "reissue wing" helmed by Stones Throw Records general manager and resident archivist Egon, and has established itself as a stopping point for funkily-informed modern musicians who want to give something back to the bands whose records fill their personal collections. While Egon continues to churn out funk compendiums like Kashmere Stage Band's Texas Thunder Soul and Amnesty's recently-released Free Your Mind, heavy-duty producers like Cut Chemist, Kenny Dope, Todd Terry, J.Rocc and more have brought up the backbeat, offering remixes, re-edits, raps and reworkings of the classic funk. On vinyl only. Well, that is, until now.
For the first time, Now-Again presents a collection of the funk remixes culled from Now-Again's back catalog of vinyl-only 7-inch and 12-inch singles, such as the Cold Heat Remix series, the Kashmere Stage Band Remix series, and more. Remastered for CD, and containing exclusive songs custom made for this collection, this album contains 16 tracks guaranteed to indoctrinate any young buck into the wonders of funk, and keep funk purists, (ahem), from sliding into obsessive obscurity.
