22 Jul 2008, 00:27 by RadiocampusbxlPas de répit en été, ou du moins en juillet, avec une première partie toujours aussi éclectique. Départ uptempo, enchaînement soul, petit détour du côté du Brésil et Puerto Rico, puis retour en Europe avec un blues sublime de John Mayall en solo. En guise de seconde partie d'émission, une mixtape déjà mythique et conçue par mes chers Ame et DVL. Ensemble ils forment After Hours et méritent amplement leur titre de "Kings of digging". Ils ont compilé pour nous tous les breaks les plus rares et les plus lourds, tous styles confondus, agrémentés des magistraux scratches de DJ Grazzhoppa. Le tout prêt à l'écoute dans un mix tout aussi succulent.

The Godfather of Go Go - Chuck Brown
**The funkiest man in the game since the 1960s!!**
As a young kid growing up in Washington, DC back in the early 1980s, my highlight of the week was to listen to my GO GO music late on AM radio. It was not played on the FM stations back then, and I had to get my GO GO fix by waiting till about 10pm (past my bed time) to hear my Sardines & Pork and Beans (popular song) and other artists such as Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers and Rare Essence.
You have to experience GO GO music in order to appreciate it and understand it. It is nice listening to it on the radio, but the concerts are one of a kind. Or even if you are with a group of friends and listening, that is when you appreciate it.
Go Go music is appreciating your community, embracing your culture and just enjoying yourself. …
18 May 2007, 03:17 by jvglionToday, I was in a major blues mood, so at work I spent most of the day listening to music similar to Muddy Waters. It just got me in such a mellow mood, despite the strong coffee I had in the morning to keep me awake. I didn't expect the latest Chuck Brown CD I ordered to come in, but it was definitely right on time. For those of you who don't know, Brown is a funk and blues guitarist, but he's known throughout the D.C. area as the Father of Go-Go.
go-go is most similar to funk, but it is also contains elements of blues, latin sounds, and is known for it's distinct percussions (i.e. timbale, congas, cowbell, etc.) Call-and-response is also a key element of go-go. Go-Go music originated in Washington, D.C. in the late 70's. Some of the most famous artists from D.C. who've helped make this distinct sound world-famous include DJ Kool, Rare Essence, E.U. who had a huge hit with the 80's club banger Da' Butt (Album Version), and one of my personal favorites, Northeast Groovers.
