It's been a while since I put out a special mix, so here's one that's long overdue - a Commodores special. The band that launched the career of legendary singer/song writer Lionel Richie were, first and foremost, a great funk outfit and so for me deserve to be considered funk royalty. This mix features 16 of the Commodores' funkiest cuts mixed for your listening pleasure. Due to legal restrictions, this mix may not be available to mixcloud users in the USA, but don't worry because you can listen to it via iTunes or Spotify instead. Enjoy!
Here's the tracklist:
Commodores - Won't You Come Dance With Me (live)
Commodores - Hold On
Commodores - Too Hot Ta Trot

Good news! You can now enjoy listening to VibeRide on Spotify. Just like iTunes, you'll find the last 10 shows for your listening pleasure. So be sure to add VibeRide to your favourites so you don't miss a beat.
Our first mix of the new year has arrived and it's a very special year for us because July 2019 will mark 10 years of VibeRide! Yes, we started way back before disco became cool again and the bass line returned to pop songs (and we like to think we played some small part in that actually happening). We're going to do something cool to celebrate our 10th anniversary, but that's a while away yet. For now, let's concentrate on the cracking tunes we've got for you in our latest release.
Mix 118 brings debuts for Lizzo, Dona Laka, Joe Bataan, Rare Cuts, and spins up grooves from Bosq, The Kay-Gees, The Fatback Band (Joey Negro mix), Chaka Khan, Commodores, Brass Construction, Rare Cuts and Brooklyn Funk Essentials.
