Here’s a 50 minute mix of mine featuring a barrage of 70’s chase themes from funky as hell soundtracks. Music and trailers from a selection of blaxploitation and seventies action films that hit with a Truck Turner sized funk fist, full force, straight in the kisser.
Funk grooves heaped with blasts of shotgun soul. Damn, when the percussion starts and wah wah guitars begin riffing, you hit that pedal to metal and smoke up those tyres on your Ford Gran Torino. Turn up that dial on the stereo, the chase has began.
Maybe a few dope fiends have been cruising the block trying to push their angel dust and blow on the neighbourhood! Sheeeeet you gotta chase those jive ass mother truckers out of town. You join up with tough super babe Pam Grier and the take no shit, Richard Roundtree, give each other the nod and become three head busting street cleaning mean machines. The tunes start to blast as the chase through the neighbourhood begins, kung-fu kicking, head cracking and power slamming all the dirt on the street.
Music and trailers featured are as follows or maybe go in listening blind to hear what pops up. Whatever way you choose, I really hope you enjoy.
