THE FUNKIEST MUSIC OF THE 70s

What’s happening folks, it’s S.D., your favorite OG (older gent) here!  Reflecting on some of my favorite musical artists of the 70’s (1970-1979).  It was during these times that I personally enjoyed the natural development and maturation of some already known R&B acts.  In addition to being introduced to new musicians from the “DISCO” era.

Luís Alves Illustration

Luís Alves Illustration

I received an image of Luis’ work that was sent to me via facebook. I have never seen graphic design quite like this before. Being such a huge fan of 1970’s Black culture, Luis’ creations blew me away. His designs are very Afrocentric, which of course is appealing to me. His intricate patterns of iconic figures like James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Prince and Marvin Gaye are so beautiful that they speak for themselves. I think you are going to like his work.

The Museum of UnCut Funk recently featured Kagan McLeod and his Infinite Kung Fu graphic novel in Aesthetic Grooves. VERY FUNKY STUFF. You can read all about it here – http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2012/04/07/infinite-kung-fu-part-1-by-kagan-mcleod/. While checking out Kagan’s work I stumbled across his amazing music themed ink drawings of some of my musical heroes. I reached out to Kagan and got his approval to post this work on our site. This cat creates some of the flyest images that fully represents what the Museum is all about.

Blaxploitation And New York Funkin’ City

 

New York Funkin’ City And Harlem, USA

NYC Collage Blaxploitation And New York Funkin City
As you know, I love Blaxploitation. What I dig most about these films is that a number of them took place in NYC. With all the jive-talking, gun-toting, leather-wearing, cocaine and heroin sniffin’ pimps, not to mention the outrageous outfits, cars and of course the women, all of these films had a funky inner-city vibe that was quite campy and extremely cheesy. I JUST LOVE IT!!!
