Funk Masters: Love Money

1. Product Details

Soul Jazz Records are releasing a new 12" of this huge 1981 disco/jazz-funk dance-floor bomb that has been out of print for over 40 years since it's original release! Few records crossed over into different musical worlds as successfully as the Funk Masters' sublime UK disco/jazz-funk monster classic cut 'Love Money'. A monster underground hit in New York - everywhere from Larry Levan's Paradise Garage and David Mancuso's Loft in New York - through to the new wave/no wave dance crowds at Area, Club 57, Danceteria, Limelight and Mudd Club, and artists such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat who similarly played the track to death. The track then also became a huge Chicago house club track and a favourite and influenced everyone from Masters at Work's Louie Vega to Francois Kervorkian with it's dubbed-out sound. // Originally released in 1981, the track came out on the flipside over a rap cut to the song by Bo Kool, one of the earliest examples of UK rap, but it was the instrumental 'Love Money', with it's dubbed out sound effects, that was more often played filling dancefloors everywhere. This nod to reggae and dub was not by chance. The track was produced by longtime UK-resident Jamaican reggae DJ and producer Tony Williams. This was his first attempt at a club track but by using reggae musicians, he created new style blending funk, disco and reggae, years ahead of it's time. // So if ever you want to hear a record that encapsulates the world of disco, funk, proto-house, hip-hop, no wave dance and reggae in one go then this is it! // This is the first release from Soul Jazz Records' delving into the Tony Williams Tania Music and Funk Masters catalogue, which contains a wealth of UK jazz-funk killers!
