James Brown Mixtape Galore: The Big Payback Vol. 1-3

What we got here are three mixtapes honoring James Brown’s legacy from the series “The Big Payback”. And every single one excels in its own way, be it authenticity, educational value or mash-up-extravaganza!

#1: DJ Scratch – The 45′s

Nice and very true to James Brown’s originals. Not too much messing around. A lot of lesser known tracks. Lovely!

#2 J PERIOD – The Legacy Of JB

A musical journey through the catalog, legacy and lasting impact of the one and only Godfather of Soul. Funky, entertaining and educating!

#3 James Brown – J.B. & The Soul Mates

Mashed-up to the max. Incredible work. James Brown tunes mixed seamlessly with Bussa Buss and many more. Although Bussa Buss and James Brown together on one track are definitely a highlight. A match made in heaven!
