CHICKEN YELLOW (GIVE IT TO ME BABY)
Proto-disco funk by the six man crew of Miami, one of the best 70s combos working in the Sunshine State -- and their original records are filled with tasty funky grooves. The breakbeat classic "Chicken Yellow" is a good primer of their overall sound, and features a fat, chunky breakbeat that opens up for a four-bar monster early into the song. Neneh Cherry later sampled this break in "Buffalo Stance."
