Experience Unlimited – Free Yourself (LP)
30.00 € inc. VAT
One of the great forgotten sounds of mid-70s funk was the Washington D.C.-based ensemble Experience Unlimited. Though best later known as pioneers of the “go-go” subgenre of dance/funk, and for their Billboard-charting hit “Da Butt” in the late-80s, the group was a potent collective of jazz-funk musicians, in the vein of innovators like War, Earth, Wind, & Fire, and similarly overlooked DC contemporaries Oneness of Juju. Experience Unlimited were renowned for their ostentatious instrumentals, winding and precise rhythms and grooves, and party-ready jams, all of which are on full display on their debut record Free Yourself, which came more than a decade before their greatest commercial success, but is no less heavy on the classic deep funk sounds.
