Soul, funk, reggae and party covers mix

Just put together an hour long mix of party stuff for a friend’s wedding this weekend which I thought I’d share here. Full tracklist to follow but includes:

Cheesy wedding DJ

DJ Ronald (Roni) Size, last week.

  • 10 mins of motown and northern soul classics to get started including a fantastic newly discovered soul cover of ‘It only takes a minute girl’
  • couple of disco tracks (including ‘Got to be real’ which has popped up on a couple of TV ads recently)
  • some funk including James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and a funk cover of Duffy’s ‘Mercy’ which almost makes her life worthwhile. Almost.
  • a few upbeat rockabilly tracks, including the uniquely expressive ‘I love you etcetera’ by Jackie Wilson
  • fairly sure this will be the first and last mix which will include ‘Ring of Fire’ followed by ‘Groove is in the Heart’
  • followed by a handful of 90s hip-pop tracks (Betty Boo/Kriss Kross etc)
  • half a dozen reggae party classics in as many minutes (54-46/bam bam/message to you rudy/heads high etc) and the brilliant Prince Fatty cover of ‘Shimmy Shimmy’ (see full blog post below for more details on this one)
  • old skool time! Out of space/on a ragga tip/superstylin/born slippy etc
  • two granny friendly drum and bass classics
  • and a bit of Barry and Bugsy to wrap it up.

Shabba.
