Review Text Parisian label Chuwanaga announce the final volume of the In The Red compilation series with this CD, bringing together Volume 1 and 2. In The Red Volume 1 & 2 is an in depth musical focus on the Britfunk genre - or British jazz-funk - mainly produced in London between the end of the '70s and the '80s. Back in the days, it defined a unique mix of jazz-funk and disco including reggae and dub techniques from Afro-Caribbean communities who were at the heart of the movement. These young musicians gave their music a unique British flavor and raw energy pushing the needle "In The Red". Almost four decades later on these powerful tracks are again ready to burn up dancefloors. Parisian DJ, activist, and producer Saint-James has selected the most exciting, rare and powerful tracks from that era (1980-1988). Expect powerful synth solos, crazy slap bass grooves, lovely vocals on the top, strong and melodic horn sections. The CD features also an insert with photos and interviews of different members of the bands featured here. Feature Equa, Congress, Potion, Inch By Inch, Index, Spookey, Stikki Stuff, Cruzial, The Breakfast Band, Yeow Band, and Scratch (Gonzalez).
