End of 2014, legendary 1970's p-funk combo Funkadelic (led by the one and only George Clinton) returned in grand style with the long player "First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate", now house music maestro Louie Vega has added his magical touch to one of the albums standout tracks, namely "Ain't that funkin' kinda hard on you". The result is simply mind-boggling, taking the track straight to the dance floor yet keeping the spirit of the original alive, blending soulful house grooves with Funkadelic's original p-funk instrumentation, George Clinton's pimpadelic vocals and the slick vocal stylings of Kendrick Lamar. You can choose from multiple vocal, instrumental and dub versions (and some radio edits too), with some of the mixes featuring guest appearances from Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley on the horns, and Kafele Bandele on trumpet. For the vinyl aficionados, there is a 12" out on Vega Records featuring two of the mixes.
