Prince & Friends: PARTYUP (Purple Reign VII)



I have been channeling my confusion and grief over the passing of the Purple One by diving deep in to my Prince archives and mixing up favorite, lesser-known tracks from Prince and his Purple Posse. No greatest hits here; this is a selection for Prince connoisseurs of live tracks, B-sides, stuff he produced for friends and special edition covers!

As in all of the other installments, DJ Fundi has combed through his vast Purple Vault in search of rare remixes, B-sides, obscure cassingle tracks and a bunch of under-appreciated songs from mostly-forgotten records. This mix brings back in to the light a number of heavy cuts from the Batman soundtrack, Musicology, New Power Soul and others. I set out to make a mix of my favorite Prince songs in 2009 -- that initiative didn’t end until this Mix #5 three years later. Its been a labor of love for sure, and a great way to rediscover all of the funky gems from Prince’s 25+ year career and share them with you!

Purple Reign IV : Prince Tribute Mix



REPOSTED IN HONOR OF THE PURPLE ONE'S PASSING RIP PRN xoxo

The fourth (of five) installment in the Podcast Cafe’s Purple Reign musical mix tribute series to Prince opens up with an abstract funk-jazz track from his obscure “Xpectations” album, then segues in to the start-stop funk of “Dance On” from “Lovesexy” and a remix of “Irresistible Bitch.” It’s a promising start and lets the listener know right away that they are in the hands of a Prince master archivist and mixmaster supreme. This isn’t any kind of Greatest Hits compilation -- expect rare tracks, remixes, B-sides and other surprises that range the entire 30-some years of the Purple One’s extravagant career.
