“Funk on Sight” by Vitamin D (download here)

Here we have something of an old school gesture from Seattle hiphop pillar Vitamin D, an hour-long mix from made from vinyl and recorded to mp3.

But it’s none of that rap. This is straight R&B.

In addition to being a rapper and producer, Vitamin D is a good DJ, which is a hard to define quality until you hear a good DJ mix. “Funk on Sight” is that, a blended entity of disco/electro funk songs from the ’70s and ’80s with some of Vitamin D’s signature scratching.

He released “Funk on Sight” via his twitter, and then re-uploaded his “Bornday” EP, which was released earlier this year. If you haven’t listened to that, get it. One of the best local “freEP” rap releases of 2010.
