B & The Family: “A Good Time” (BusCrates Remix)

By: Jack Anderson

It’s Friday; John E Dee’s Old School Dance Party is so close we can taste it and we’re pre-gaming with an ’80s legend. To qualify “legendary”, for starters, New Jersey’s Brian K. Morgan played guitar on the Sugarhill Gang classic, “Rapper’s Delight”, and that’s just one of countless iconic collaborations that made Morgan a household name more than three decades ago.

A couple years back Morgan turned some old demo tapes from 1987 into two fleshed out singles (featuring the help of family members), billed the recordings as B & The Family and instantly cemented himself in the modern funk scene. In 2018 B & The Family joined up with Austin Boogie Crew to release two more singles on 7″ vinyl: a 1984 re-release of “Just Want To Love Ya” and a modern funk remix of his 1987 original, “A Good Time”. Arranged by Pittsburgh producer BusCrates, this remix is a flawless blend of ’80s flashback and 21st century production techniques. Get your Dance Party started early on some old-school-meets-new-school with “A Good Time” (BusCrates Remix)!

Daniel Fears: “Say Something”

Here at KUTX and Song of the Day, we try to be as dutiful as we can in providing both an accurate representation of the Austin Music Experience and great tunes. But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]

Nihiloxica: “Asidi”

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
