Chemical Funk

This week on the Seven O’Clock Sample, we are exploring the music of the CHEMICAL BROTHERS!

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons began creating music together in the early 1990s.  As DJs, they were drawn to the multilayered sample styles of American Hip Hop and when they found themselves running out of tracks to spin, they began to create their own.

In 1995, they released their debut full length album on Junior Boys Own.  The album’s title was the testament to their name change from Dust Brothers ( a name they borrowed from the west coast production team behind the Beastie Boys ) to the CHEMICAL BROTHERS.

Here is the WHITE LABEL version, pre-release….

There is no doubt that the Brothers have got some funk, and on this track they sampled some funk from one of the FUNKIEST organ players to bless the 88 keys… Mr. Jimmy McGriff!
