Ain’t it funky now. Released in 2014 via Light In The Attic Records, this 18 track compilation of Sly Stone’s short lived Stone Flower label continues to deliver empyrean dividends from the way-out. Over the course of four 7″ singles, the label focused on a serpentine hybrid of minimal electro-funk, all delivered via house artists Joe Hicks, 6IX, Sly, and Little Sister. Produced and arranged by Stone himself, the catalog possesses an incredible lo-fi charm, slipping between proto-versions of Family Stone joints (“Just Like A Baby”), would-be anthems, and drum machine laden soul. Absolute acres of groove.
