Dust off the platform heels, break out the purple leather overcoat, slide into the denim superflares, drape yourself in rolled gold and stroll down to the sleaziest soulsonic shakedown this side of Harlem circa 1973, ‘cos the huge hit of the BECK’S FESTIVAL BAR 2008 returns to The Basement for one show only on July 16th 2010.

We’re talking tracks from films like Superfly, Shaft, 110th Street, Troubleman, The Mack, Black Caesar, Slaughter’s Big Rip Off and Cleopatra Jones, as recorded originally by soul greats Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Isaac Hayes and Willie Hutch. These cult classic Blaxploitation movies from the early-mid 1970’s spawned some of the greatest soul and funk tracks ever released, from moody, atmospheric background music like Marvin Gaye’s Trouble Man Soundtrack to the plaintive ghetto dramas of Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly or the electrifying excitement of Isaac Hayes’s Shaft.

Now it’s time to recreate and revitalise an amazing selection of these Blaxploitation soundtrack soul classics LIVE at the Basement on Friday July 16, while screening classic and rare footage from the original movies.

With an expanded 12-piece Booty Affair “Pimpestra” (short for Pimp Orchestra), the sweet sweetback sounds of the baaaaaaddest movies ever made are coming to downtown Sydney! Featuring Australia’s very own Mack: the pimp rolling, street working, high risk player Professor Groove, and a raft of special guests, including the sweet soul tones of Juanita Tippins (Confection, Jimmy Barnes), the Marvin-like smoky voice of Jonah Lataukefu (Katie Noonan, Suite Az), The Crackhouse Horns (a 3 piece horn section featuring the Weird Assembly’s Dave Weir),  and of course the A Team of Professor Groove’s regular funk crew, players like Josh Beagley (guitar), Terepai Richmond (drums) and Alex Hewetson (bass), the Pimpestra is ready to recreate the hustle and bustle and pure uncut funk sound of wah wah guitars, wobbling synthesisers and those world famous urban breakbeats.

DJ Stephen Ferris from FBI Radio’s  Funk Flashback will be on hand to drop some crackling old vinyl onto the decks, and the dirty funk will continue late into the night with Professor Groove and The Booty Affair conducting the after party.
