go go joey

Goodtogo1CjsucZzgogogetdown

Yo! Yo! Go Go Get Down (Pure Ghetto Funk From Washington DC)is an utterly great v/a 2cd compiled by dj Dave Lee aka Joey Negro for ZR (cat. no. ZeddCD025, 2012). Ranging from 1975 to 2004 but focusing on go go‘s 1980-1987 high, it complements 1990’s classic Washington Go Go Sound Attackv/a 2cd & 2lp on BCM very well … Hey and trying to find the date for some tracks – we’re trying to understand the genre’s history after all – made me discover the Funklopedik Project:
