Love Handle, in association with Discogs, is proud to present the Inaugural Toronto Modern Funk Fest on May 21st, 2016 inside the Rivoli Backroom. Love Handle is simply the best pure Funk party in Toronto, holding it down once a month, since ’09, in an all vinyl, respect the dancefloor kinda way. This official anniversary edition is gonna be the funkiest and most ambitious jam yet!
Performers include Miami’s six-piece gangsta funk band Psychic Mirrors, multi-instrumentalist Brian Ellis, as well as DJ sets by Randy ‘Hotthobo’ Ellis and resident DJ’s Alister Johnson & Famous Lee.
Ahead of the event, Psychic Mirrors have hit us off with a list of their Top 10 Favorite Records!
It’s hard to choose a top ten of anything but these records first came to mind when asked.
It’s just one of those records that you can keep going back to over and over again. It’s fun to listen and not even think about the movie.
This record is wavy as fuck. It seems so foreign and sci-fi at first, but then the more you listen, the more you hear how human it is.
Michael McDonald is honorary Miami. This album has all the hits on it that we love, but if you have never been down south and listened to this, you probably wouldn’t understand our perspective as much.
Iconic, part of the foundation of our people, and the bridge from the old generation to the new.
Freaks sparkle when this album sounds.
All of Miles’s albums are amazing and have vibes of their own. This one is the pick of the day I guess. Old mansion on outskirts of the city feels.
Feel like there are a lot of contrafacts of Bartok on this, but yeah it’s a trip and all feels. Some of it was used in the movie Alien against Goldsmith’s wishes.
It’s just beautiful music from the master.
John Harrison’s original score mixed in (chronologically to the movie I think) with cues that George Romero and co. picked. Raw and wavy as fuck. End of story.
1. Beny Moré – Historia Musical de Un Idolo
The greatest to ever do it. El Barbaro Del Ritmo. The pillar of Cuban music. [Editor’s Note: This release has not yet been added to the Discogs database.]
