Various Artists Funk for the 21st Century
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Do Right!
If you haven't been keeping up with the contemporary funk movement, shame on you, first of all. Second of all, you have a chance for redemption, because Keb Darge has got your back. Known among those hardcore diggers with busted backs and bloody cuticles as one of the best to ever raid record spots, Darge has been making a name for himself Stateside by compiling his rarest and funkiest gems. Now he turns his attention to the cream of the new crop, serving up 14 raw-to-the-bone gems from folks like the Sugarman Three, Speedometer and the inimitable Sharon Jones. Listen and learn, folks, because these records will be tomorrow's sought-after heavyweights.
