Time Out NY sez 4 stars for Funk Aid!

“All proceeds from this album are going to charitable organizations NextAid and South Africa’s Youth with a Vision, which is reason enough to drop some do-re-mi on the release, perhaps. Then again, the music contained therein should be plenty. Compiled by DJ OBaH, the mix is a stone-cold funkfest, taking in Latin and African rhythms, soulful house, disco and dub, all mixed in a creatively nonlinear fashion. (In other words, the tempo jumps around a lot.) Highlights—of which there are many—include the slow-burning “Together” from J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science and OBaH’s own pumped-up remix of the Pimps of Joytime’s “San Francisco Bound.”—Bruce Tantum TONY
