    What's up? I could start a HUGE LONG LIST but a lot of the stuff may be difficult to find. Where do you live? Are you on Soulseek? If not, you need to get on Soulseek. First thing you need to do right away is get Jake One's AR Music mix CDs volume 1-4. You will love these. You can order them here:

    www.baghatvinyl.com

    Labels to look for:

    Prelude
    West End
    Salsoul


    Leroy Burgess productions are dope

    I am sure other cats will add on to the list for you

    I was really into this style before I got more into funk and jazz (still like it though), too many favorites come to mind, best track in the genre though in my opinion:
    Universal Robot Band - Barely Breaking Even

    Some other favs:
    Ednah Holt - Serious Serius Space Party
    Funk Masters - It's Over
    T-Connection - Do What You Wanna Do

    Also reccomended for some very nice disco sets.

    ha! never that.. the convo usually degrades into dividing boogie into 10 new subcategories and someone saying, 'that's not boogie, that's more like modern disco'

    seriously though, the search function will yield many many results
