“Funk For The Folks…”

08.14.09 8 years ago 5 Comments

Funk For the Folks is the latest mix by Darien Victor Birks of Flwrpt. If you peeped the Motown 50 mix, you should know what a DVB mix entails.

1. DVB is not a DJ and isn’t trying to be one; this is just a compilation of good music.

2. No mash-ups whatsoever will be found here. Just unadulterated classics.

3. If you’re not well-versed in old school, these mixes serve as a primer to get your crate diggin’ on.

Now that you’ve been briefed, the last and most important part is simply one word: Listen.
