New mix: "Wax On, Funk Off!"

Seeing how well 'BinG Loves Jazz!' has done, I'm jumping at the opportunity to compile our second mixtape focusing on contemporary funk numbers that I'm pretty sure many of you are going to enjoy.

These have become so much fun to put together and my mind is already racing for a theme for a follow-up mixtape.  Like with jazz, I kinda feel contemporary funk doesn't really get its due so hopefully we can convert a few people with 'Wax On, Funk Off!'. I've had fun with some of the interludes as well so hope you enjoy...

As keen as I am to do another, in November, I'm hoping to unveil episode 8 of our 'get to know' series and the contenders have been whittled down to: Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Eric Krasno and Casey Benjamin.  Hopefully, we'll have that prepped within a few weeks from now.

In the meantime, please find the full tracklist below for "Wax On, Funk Off!"...
