Throwback Thursday: Jorun Bombay Flips James Brown's "Funky Drummer"

James Brown‘s iconic cut “Funky Drummer” gets a true-to-form chop from Portuguese DJ/Producer Jorun Bombay on this Throwback Thursday. This isn’t an overbearing rework that dissolves the character of the trophy status cut, rather a simple flip of Clyde Stubblefield‘s most profound work, amplifying JB’s punctuating horn arrangements and breaks by dropping the beat off altogether to really hit that knee-deep swagger. It’s a classic discourse on the one, taking a track thats been chopped ad nauseam and letting the fun(k)damentals really shine through. Prop yourself up at the work desk and throw Jorun Bombay’s ill rendition of the most known break in recorded history on the phones. We’ll have some more Throwback funkdom for ya ears shortly.
