Had to Funk shit up for Funky Friday. Here's a lil something from the Funk Lordz to get you hype for the weekend. This is the second track from the GRAMMY NOMINATED album Head Over Heels called "Don't Sleep" by CHROMEO featuring French Montana and Stefflon Don. Head Over Heels is the fifth studio album by Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo. It was released on June 15, 2018, via Big Beat and Atlantic Records. The album features vocals from artists such as The-Dream, French Montana, Stefflon Don, DRAM and Amber Mark, with production work from producers such as Raphael Saadiq, Rodney Jerkins and Pino Palladino. The album was first announced in November 2017 and a release date for the album in April 2018. It consists of "talk-box–assisted pop songs about dating mishaps, comically disastrous relationships and anxiety-inducing sexual encounters." The album's recording process began 2 years before its release with Chromeo stating "...we were impatient to do the new record – so we spent the last two years working on this one [Head Over Heels]."Speaking about the album, Chromeo said: "The mission statement for this album, for us, was to kind of pen this overarching love letter to funk music and the different kinds of funk music that have influenced us throughout the years since we discovered funk music when we were teenagers all the way until now... But it's also sort of, you know, going back to the real roots of funk. We made this one much more live, just a little less electronic than our previous two, three albums."

Sup y'all, bout to set you up with some random back n' tha day hits for Throwback Thursday. Don't forget to add them to your playlists😎. Let us begin.... Time After Time is the debut album released on Quality Records by freestyle singer Timmy T on June 20, 1990, by Quality Records label. It peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200albums chart. Six singles were released from the album. "One More Try", the most successful single, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. "Over and Over", "Time After Time", and "What Will I Do" also cracked the Hot 100. Timmy Torres (born September 21, 1967 in Fresno, California), professionally known as Timmy T, is a freestyle performer and musician. Timmy T started out in the 1980s in small rap groups in Fresno, but felt that he would rather do dance music. He purchased a Moog synthesizer and a Roland TR-808 drum machine at a pawn shop, and recorded his first single, "Time After Time", in his garage. After getting that single pressed on vinyl, he rode his motorcycle to a local Fresno radio station to ask them to play his song. After the DJ played the song, there were many calls requesting who was performing that song. The DJ recommended that Timmy T take his record to radio stations in Los Angeles for more exposure. After Los Angeles pop station Power 106 played the record, it received airplay from several more stations throughout the country including Hot 97 in New York. Timmy got a record deal with Quality Records, and "Time After Time" went on to peak at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Press play▶️
오늘은 비가 많이 오지만 금주 주말엔 비가 오지 않습니다. 김밥레코즈 매장은 금요일부터 월요일까지 문을 닫고, 토요일과 일요일에는 #서울레코드페어@seoul_recordfair 가 열리는 서울역 ( #문화역서울284)에서 문을 엽니다. 2층으로 오시면 되고 어떤 앨범들 어떤 상품들을 가져갈 것인지 어떤 앨범들을 페어 기간에 특가로 내놓을 것인지...에 대해선 맘의 결정을 내렸으나 아직 활자화되지 않았고 비오는 오늘밤 짐을 챙기면서 만들어진 목록은 금요일 중 블로그에 올라갈 예정입니다. 시간이 부족해 금주 신작들 소개를 거의 못 올렸는데 좋은 앨범들도 많이 추가되었고, 사진에 있는 #MayerHawthorne 의 노래 “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out”를 담은 싱글처럼 오랜만에 돌아온 레코드들도 많이 있습니다. 시간이 허락한다면 페어 때 판매하는 앨범들 preview를 이 곳에 올리겠습니다.
