Here's a funky track we did for my friend Joe. He calls himself "Swifta"

I sequenced the beat on this one, and helped with production. My friend TJ played bass and funk guitar on it. (single coil strat with a lot of wah action) Sharon Groom sang the chorus, as well as writing some of the synth parts and recording/producing the whole song.

Swifta has a sweet old school sound, and when he started rapping, all I could hear was funk and heavy bass. Luckily TJ could produce everything we thought up... that guy can play.

Check it out on Myspace:

We're trying like hell to get together and record more stuff. We've got half a dozen songs in various states of production, this is the only one that is close to finished.

Oh, and to hear more of TJ - he's the bass player in this band:

He's been compared to several different old school rappers. I can't remember the names I've heard off-hand now.

This was his first recorded song, and he's been writing/practicing constantly for months since this. I'm interested to see how his new stuff sounds when we get to record it.
