Wild City #105: Karl Hungus
21 March 2016
Reunion Island selector Karl Hungus delivers a diverse selection of funk for Wild City Mix #105.
Resident DJ at Sakifo Musik Festival and one of Reunion Island's biggest concert halls Kabardock, Karl Hungus is the latest contributor to our mix selection at Wild City.
Many of you will remember the expert selector from his recent India tour with Mixtape and performance at the 2016 edition of The Lost Party. He’s known to always be on the lookout for rare and unknown 50s rhythm and blues, soul, funk, disco and more.
For Wild City Mix #105, Hungus shows off his selection abilities by starting off focussing on rare, groove heavy funk, R&B and soul from the likes of Rita Wright, Little Richard and Ernie Hines, before moving on to a more hip-hop influenced sound. The energy stays nice and easy throughout, making this the perfect set of tunes to kick off a cool evening in with some friends.
"A bunch of classics with some more unusual material to feed your soul." - Karl Hungus
