What the Funk Cover

This mix was created over two days in a kitchen in Devon. Using Minidisk to record, records piled in order out of their sleeves, some serious sticker dropping and some of the fastest record changes ever seen by a toaster and kettle. ‘What The Funk’ isn’t really a funk mix but does get confusing in places so you can imagine the original, unsensored, title.

Sadly, there is currently no tracklist for this one but artists include; Skitz, Aspects, The Flying Pickets, El-P, Mr Scruff, Freestyle Fellowship, Greyboy and James Brown among others.

High Speed Dubbing Cover

Recorded live on 4 turntables in a basement studio in Bristol, this mix was conceived, rehersed and finally done live in just two days. Sanfu has since gone on to be one of Bristol’s most in demand scratch musicians making his mark with Se Fire, Stereo 8 and Leisure Recordings among others. The mix is raw and some of the vinyls were pretty beaten up but this, if anything, was a masterclass in sticker dropping.
