Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut. This is updated (almost) daily.
In the late 90s / early 00s, these types of records made it's way out of production houses and into the hands of hip hop beat makers willing to spend big bucks for that hard to find sample. This French library record was composed by Janko Nilovic under the alias Andy Loore and released as a 10 inch record. The beginning tracks are snoozy muzak, but then out of nowhere Nilovic hits his stride with his signature moody French psychedelic mod-funk on "Opium Du Diable”. That tracks sets the table for the drum and funky bass extravaganza “Mixed Drums”. Beatnuts fans know the deal. The last cut "Drummer Bells” is another heavy drum workout most suitable for purveyors of the b-boy stance. Janko Nilovic has quite a repertoire of funk breaks spanning the 60s and 70s and this is a must.
