Between the end of the 70's and the early 80's a new sound appeared in London and its surroundings a unique mix of Funk JazzFunk and Disco labelled as Britfunk. Characterized by its raw energy that can put the needle In The Red this uptempo sound was a match for the UK's dancers and JazzFunk clubs. This first release by French label Chuwanaga features some of the most exciting rare and powerful tracks from that era compiled by the Parisian DJ and activist SaintJames with bands such as Equa Potion Inch by Inch Congress Index and Spookey. It features also an insert with an indepth focus on this musical era. These young British musicians were equally inspired by the American JazzFunk productions and by Dub music and Reggae pushed by the AfroCaribbean community who were at the heart of Britfunks development. They gave Funk a unique British flavor. However more than just a music genre or an enclosed expression of black Britishness it was part of a genuine musical and social movement with its own dedicated labels fashion sense and most importantly its own set of values that fueled the whole scene. Britfunk built itself within a multicultural evolution: black people white people straight and queer all dancing in the same room to the same loud sound.
