With the Obama inauguration around the corner & the majority of the world already celebrating the 44th president of the United States, I though it would be a good time to share our own tribute to the nation’s first black President.
This one is a tribute mixtape by SOUL OF SYDNEY DJ’s & It features some of our favourite funk, soul & disco artists, including: James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Herb Alpert, Issac Hays, George Clinton, Lonnie Liston Smith, & George Benson just to name a few blended with samples from the Barrack Obama election night Speech & Martin Luther King ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech.

That is a nice mix of real funk here & a real cool way to use the MLK ‘I have a dream speech,
Its fitting to note that over 45 years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial MLK delivering his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, where he evoked the ideals of the man who set the black man (and women) free, Abraham Lincoln himself & this is also the same place where the first black president of the country Barack Obama will celebrate his inaguration.
Dont you love it when the world smiles at you.
It seems the whole world is ready for change now after the mess the last president left around the world. but lets not even mention his name, its a time for joy now, so lets soak it up and dance to this tribute.
