Future Primitive Funk

“What’s On Your Mind” (directed by Alex Saylor) is a new animated video featuring Stones Throw funk maestro Dam Funk and non other than Tony Cook, James Brown’s longtime funky drummer. The video’s aesthetic is a great nod to Tony’s now legendary “On The Floor”, famously dubbed “The Granddaddy of All House Records”.

Read an interview I did with Tony HERE and check the new video.

Funky Drummer

I had the pleasure of speaking with Tony Cook recently. Besides serving as James Brown’s main drummer for 30 years, Tony also made dance tracks and early rap records while in London in the early 1980s. His career and musical history is the stuff of legend.

Read my talk with Tony recently done for Wax Poetics HERE and check out ‘On The Floor’, a monster dance cut from the early ’80s now dubbed “The Grandaddy of All House Records”.
