Overview

Disco and funk combine on Phat Trax: The Best of Old School, Vol. 2, which pays tribute to the sounds that inspired hip-hop. Rolling, voluptuous basslines, uptight guitars, and vibrant brass sections drive tracks like Funkadelic's "One Nation Under a Groove," Fatback's "Backstrokin'," and Tom Browne's "Thighs High (Grip Your Hips and Move)," bridging the gap between funk and disco and providing countless rap and hip-hop artists ample material for sampling. Sun's "Sun Is Here," Faze-O's "Riding High," and T.S. Monk's "Bon Bon Vie" are among the other highlights of this funky, stylish compilation, which also documents just how integral these songs were to hip-hop's development.
