If you’ve been collector of funk or digging culture then you should no doubt be familiar with the Kashmere Stage Band which was brought to the masses via Egon’s Funky 16 Corners compilation back in 2001. The original Kashmere album has remained a top want for many collectors and now via Athens of The North, those same DJ’s and collectors can now carry out two sure shots from the LP on a convenient 7″ to their gigs. Making their first time on 45 appearance, AOTN pulls a pair of very club friendly cuts with “Kashmere” b/w “Scorpio” from this high school band that’s ready to knock the socks off of dancers. Kashmere is heavy on the horns with the funky break thats ready for the double up, while Scorpio should need no introduction, Hip Hop and classic break beat heads will know this as one of the most beloved breaks covered here by the band.
