BT Magnum and Lebaron Present: Funkacise '09  


After an inspirational MLK eve opening for Boyz II Men followed by an impromptu set at the Sweater Funk party, (Thanks Jon and Guillermo) Le Baron and myself set out to make a new mix at the Joel Vuitton ranch due east of the SF Bay Area. We purposely didn't put very much thought into this in an attempt to give it a live feel. We simply hit record, grabbed some joints from our respective DJ bags, and went one for one on LeBaron's tweaked up Bozak mixer. The end result is "Funkacise", the first Beat Electric mix of 2009.

The Tracklist:

1. Rene & Angela - I'll Be Good (Special Instrumental Mix)
2. Vernon Burch - Do It To Me
3. Serena - Get Your Body Up (Instrumental)
4. Funkacise Gang - Funkacise (Instrumental)
5. Starshine - All I Need Is You (Instrumental)
6. Stone - Time (Instrumental)
7. Unique - What I Got Is What You Need
8. Karen Silver - Nobody Else
9. Wrecking Crew - You Don't Care
10. Patrice Rushen - Get Off
11. Arlana - You Can't Keep Breaking My Heart (Instrumental)
12. Billy Ocean - Night (Feel Like Getting Down)
13. Carol Shinnette with the Concrete Band - Cyanide Love
14. The Bang Gang - Street Music (Instrumental)
15. China Burton - You Don't Care (About Our Love) (Instrumental)
16. Lucy Hawkins - Gonna Get Out Of Here
17. Ahzz - New York's Movin' (Instrumental)
18. John Davis & The Monster Orchestra - Love Magic
19. Larry Jon Wilson - Melt My Igloo
20. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Dark Star

    You guys rock!

    Looked for that Billy Ocean record for years, then found two copies at Amoeba a few weeks back. Was it recently repressed or bootlegged?

    And you played Dark Star!!

    Straight in my Zune !

    I don't know if that Billy Ocean track has been repressed. I was on the hunt for it for a while before I found it and shelled out a $20 for it. I probably could have found it cheaper though.

    I like 'Stay The Night' off the Nights (Feel Like Getting Down) album too. Funny as I found a sort of beaten copy of the lp at record store down the street from the office only a month or so ago, best score of the day.

    All of this talk of Billy Ocean is well and good, but let's get back to the real jam here, "Dark Star!"

    The joint for me on this mix is the Serena track that BT dropped. It is so raw!


  • January 29, 2009 at 8:39 PM  

    I must say, that the best mix of my life is at 1:00:54


  • January 30, 2009 at 11:06 AM

    Any chance you could post this tune China Burton - You Don't Care (About Our Love) (Instrumental)?


  • March 2, 2011 at 12:23 AM  

    Doubtful since my copy got lifted off of the train in Belgium.
