Uncle Junior's Friday Fish Fry- The Market

DJ Djiniji Brown's second album, Uncle Junior's Friday Fish Fry, takes the listener on a fascinating journey around the world and through time to stitch together some truly funky, earthy beats into a mix that will get you on the floor and keep you there. It is also interesting enough for headphone listening. The seamless flow takes in diverse sources like blaxploitation soundtracks, Afro-funk, smooth house, dub, funk, hip-hop, Latin jazz, and Cuban sounds. All the tracks are first-class dance music, and the set's awash in some classic 70s funk and Latin tunes, set next to newer tracks that were clearly inspired by the older ones - and which manage to borrow their influence without sanding things down too much

Browns mixing skills are solid but unspectacular; his strength lies in the selection of the tracks and in the juxtaposition of sounds, cultures, and rhythms. Easily one of the top albums on Soul'd Out.
