Get A Move On

Mr Scruff is a modern day Manchester legend. Stand in a record shop with an M postcode the morning after one of his djing nights and hear middle aged men with beards and trainers cooing over obscure 80s funk B-sides that they don't know the name of, blowing their cheeks out appreciatively (and enviously). His 1999 album Keep It Unreal is a treasure trove of low key funkiness. Get A Move On starts with some ragtime jazz and when the drums comes in gets very funky indeed. Nice vocal sample too. Mr Scruff also has a very nice tea shop, highly recommended if you're ever in the Northern Quarter. As is this song.
