Funky DL – Sometimes I Have to Wonder… [Funky DL samples Stevie Wonder] EP [Washington Classics]

Funky DL returns with his new project, the next in his "Funky DL samples" series. Previously, he took on the works of Amy Winehouse (links below), but this time it's the magical audio of Motown legend Stevie Wonder that DL crafts his hip-hop chemistry with. This all new FREE and downloadable EP is entitled "Sometimes I Have To Wonder" and sees DL flippin' such classics as Stevie's "My Cherie Amour" (1969), "He's Misstra Know-It-All" (1974), "Thank You Love" (1966) and "Please Don't Go" (1974).

Funky DL - Classic Was The Day LP

On The DL – Funky DL

During the late 1990s, few UK rap acts were heard on the radio airwaves as much as East London’s Funky DL. His early tracks - ‘Da Individual’ and ‘1-2-2-1’ - were supported by the likes of Westwood, Max ‘n’ Dave and DJ 279, helping Funky DL to quickly build up a strong following. Critics were quick to disparage DL for rapping in an American accent but few could question the quality of his producing skills. His use of mellow jazz samples led to comparisons being made between his style and that of respected US artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Pete Rock.
