DJ Jay Smooth made a special funk mix for Prince’s birthday this year and we’re JUST getting round to hearing it.
Prince’s return to the forefront of music alongside his entry into Twitterdom have been highlights of the year so far. Back in June, Jay Smooth paid homage to the “Purple Yoda” as he dubbed the Minneapolis funk master with a mix of some unreleased, some well known and (for some) unheard funk records. Steering clear of the “hits” was a good move for Jay as it opened the scope for any new fans to hear Prince’s foundations in funk music.
UPDATE: The mix is no longer there but Jay Smooth did make a tribute mix after Prince’s passing so you can stream that below.
