    This is real soul. Vintage Motown. I'm old enough to know about this. The music back then was written from the heart and not the POCKET. Great track. PEACE. T576 OUT.

    My dear legendary top soul man Joe.
    See, When I say you are the top man you doubting me.
    Here is the proof mate.
    Fantastic track for a wonderful era.
    Well done faves.

    G'day mate! You know I should be doing more appropriate that is suitable for my era. One genre seems to dominate this site but there has to be other music lovers out there especially from from my era, or just yearning for something different. Mate, I admire what you do as well, and you get tremendous feedback. So right there is proof people want something other than the cursing and booming 808s songs. I appreciate you stopping by and spreading some good vibes!

    Cheers from Joe!

    I feel so blessed to have been rooted in real music when people would sing for real like you do. I love that gospel vocal you did a while back. I am going to jump back into some serious producing soon. Thanks for the review.

    So smooth. Love how the guitars give it a little grittiness. The brass is sweet. Puts me in a good state of mind. Not sure about the piano in the middle, but the rest sounds as good as anything out there. Would love to hear a vocalist on this.

    Joe you have the comments by the upper crust of Looperman, I am in rarefied air here. They took all the good words out of my mouth, lol. I liked the swirling sound and the COSoul nature of it (chill out soul). it was a breath of fresh air, no, the fresh prince of BELair. Keep n dishing it up, bro. vic

    Sooo fine, Joseph! My kind of music for sure. And, I'm from that time as well. I just had to start singing a melody to it. Couldn't help myself. I think you channeled a bit of Curtis Mayfield when you made this track. That's the voice I heard in my head. Or perhaps David Ruffin. Just had to download it so I could put it in my car and sing along on my way downtown to work tomorrow.

    Thanks for this.


    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Eric, somewhere in this world I think I owe you about a billion thanks, so I better get started thanks Eric! But in all seriousness, I have been trying to shed my hip-hop past. I have no problem being called old. I identify with more refined music like Tumbleweed's music and your music anyway. I guess it does not help that much that I still make crazy loops which is something I enjoy doing. Funny you mentioned Curtis Mayfield, I have tapped into him for inspiration on another song of mine. Cheers Eric! Joe

    Nice to see this one back up on the screen Joe...so about 2 beats in and I`m reminded of the feelings it passed on when I first heard it...and it still leaves that smile & good memories,,..waiting for another one like this Joe...you do it well..and I thank you....Ed

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Yo bro! I know I have been slacking a bit. Yeah I love that way back classic vibe. I just will not do one until I am in classic mood music zone. Kind of on a dry spell bro. I will jump start it soon, I hope! Thanks so Much Ed. Joe

    Very smooth very nicely put together and what a time warp!
    I know what you mean about the N-word music .... boring.
    If I see adult content I don't listen to it anymore.
    I might be wrong but I presume it's that standard voice saying xxxx and xxxxxx.... again.

    LankFrampard on Thu 18th May 2017 - 5 years ago

    heard so many of your loops but never a full track and man this is some high level stuff here!

    that beat is funky as shit bro

    loving the guitar stabs and the chord progression is sexy

    could easily hear some nice caramel tones on this one

    it's a very ooooh baby kinda track and the change at 1:14 is almost hiphop style

    madness, keep at it man

    wikkid on Sun 9th Oct 2016 - 5 years ago

    Just wonderful. I have to agree that this is circa 1967. I'm thinking "Your Precious love" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, updated with Curtis Mayfield's "Giving Him Something He Can Feel" from the sleeper hit SPARKLE (RIP Curtis! untimely death silenced a man with many more hits to create)

  26. Mahloo13
    Mahloo13 on Sat 8th Oct 2016 - 5 years ago

    This is amazing work! The first part took my mind to a Schweppes Kinley Tonic commercial. Very smooth sound track! I think this would be fabulous with some vocals on top, regardless of that it still is a great production you've got here. Literally had me groovin' to it throughout all three plays. Great work, really great work!

    This is just a sweet sweet tune Joe! Surely you have stepped back in time and captured the essence perfectly. The percussion and drum work was nice as you brought that out in the mix which would be different from back in the day. Thoroughly enjoyed my listen.

    Gee. Thanks for the kind words, man!
    I was just teasing you, though, saying that your non-electronic-and-proud-of-it song needed a remix.

    If you really want to you can hit me up with the link and I'll see what I can do, but don't feel like you have to.

    This... could use a dubstep remix

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Just say the work bro and I'll send you the uncompressed wav on dropbox. I know you do awesome work man, no doubt it. I've done dubstep in the past but not like yours because you are boss when it comes to dubstep. Me, I fell back into my roll. It feels good when you are on your native genre I guess. Anyways, thanks man! Peace!

  34. Planetjazzbass
    Planetjazzbass on Thu 6th Aug 2015 - 6 years ago

    Hey Joe..takes me back(and fortunately I have some reasonable equipment to listen to it on now,lol),I think you'd be writing your own ticket if you time traveled back to the motown era man,artists and studios alike would be falling over themselves to get you as a producer...I guess we're all a little guilty of 'blaxploitation' I know I am,I still have all Otis Redding's albums along with Wilson Pickett and heaps of James Brown to name but a few in my record collection....You have to have lived the experience to get to the soul of the situation to express it properly..and you have man!...cool vibes and big slow round wound bass notes! cheers Dave

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Dave, I guess I come to realisation that I am old relatively speaking and no shame in that. I have to do me and cut out the hip-hop, trap and dupstep in my life. When I do tracks like these I feel good about myself. Let the kids do their music they got plenty of it.

    I feel mugged and beat down by N-word rappers when I hear them rap on their loud tunes. Yes, Exactly Dave, man I am going back restores my dignity and pride a bit. Back in my days we all had small AM band radios in the 60s and you could leave it on all day and be happy. They played more music, better music and fewer commercial for the whole family man and they played some of the greats you just named.

    So I said to myself recently there must be a mature listening base here on this site. So I decided to just do me now in my tunes even if I get just 1 listener. Since I stopped chasing fame and stats long ago I have no fear anymore. I use to do song with the direct purpose of pleasing other people rather than create from the heart and accepting critical reviews. Thanks for the review! Joe

    EricMilligan on Tue 28th Jul 2015 - 6 years ago

    Great track, Joe! This is my kind of music for sure! (I just found a singer, busking on Sparks Street Mall here in Ottawa, who could do a killer vocal on it.) I've been away from Looperman for quite a while and this is the first track I've listened to for months I guess. A great way to re-enage! :)

  39. mrwolf14
    mrwolf14 on Tue 28th Jul 2015 - 6 years ago

    Pure Motown with a "modern touch". Loved.
    Well.. I have been away for such a long time and this is the first song I am getting... definitely I have been missing your music MrFunktastic (my bad).
    Wonderful composition: I like to hear this songs as instrumental because I can fully capture all the details.
    Of course a sweet vox would be the icing on the cake.
    Very well done!
    Take care, Domenico

    theHumps on Mon 27th Jul 2015 - 6 years ago

    This is why the word "Fantastic" is in your name!! Too cool of a track Joe, you need someone like Patricia to lay down some sweet vox on this. Who cares if they make music on their phone, as long as it's half as good as this I'm all in. ;)

    Way to go Joe, all this reminiscing is making me feel old now, he.


    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Aaaah Shucks Wayne! Starting to have an Andy Griffith show moment. Although I saw that show as reruns as a kid. Going back man makes me feel good brother! The crap on the radio, we know that crap sucks! Ha ha ha! That is why remember the earlier music puts a smile on peoples faces. Music on a phone Wayne? Well I am on the fence there brother! Peace man! Joe

    that bass is too nice, very nice composition all around, you definitely captured that era's sound. was curious what key its in? great sound my friend.

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Thanks my friend. I've been holding back on my 60s grind. The kids got their music and lots of it so by golly I need mine, ha ha ha! Bminor bro! Peace, Joe!

  42. Neomorpheus
    Neomorpheus on Mon 27th Jul 2015 - 6 years ago

    I'm hip Joe but I'm gonna challenge you a bit on the year 1967. I think it should be 1965.

    -LBJ was sworn in for his first full term as U.S.President.

    -Muhammad Ali knocks out Sonny Liston in the first round with his now infamous "Phantom Punch".

    -NASA launches Gemini 3 into Earth orbit with its first 2 person crew.

    -The Beatles movie "Help" is released.

    -The U.S. Air Force 2nd Air Division begins bombing North Vietnam.


    -Smokey Robinson and the Miracles release "Ohh Baby Baby" on Motown.

    I really love the track bro, you nailed the Motown sound and it definitely is shades of Smokey and the Miracles for me.

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    LBJ Built a GREAT SOCIETY back then, welfare? Ali and Liston was in Feb 1964 there brother! I think you got some other dates wrong too, ah ha!

    Hey Neo, whats the good word there brother! Me I am just trying to get back in touch with the real me you know. Music is almost spiritual to some and it defines some of this. My son said: Hey dad you use to be cool, I find it difficult to listen Hip-Hop music there brother but call me old fashioned and I will not be offended Neo.

    All same, thanks for the review as ramble on here. Peace Brother! Joe

    What happened to music is the same thing, that happened to Honour
    Truth and Justice it was sacrificed...
    For the wealth of a few, at the expense of the many they don't want
    them to think anymore, they want them to do as I say and use this...
    And they have fallen for it, now it all comes in a box...

    Well be that as it may, it's nice to walk back down that street again
    it's like it was yesterday...hahaha..In fact it was...lol

    Real nice project Man...


    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Hey TG whats going on there brother! Yeah I guess that is why no one listens to the radio anymore. I remember a time you could just let the radio play man. People today TG just want to be famous and lack the talents of Marvin Gaye as you have seen people like Pharrell Williams ripped off Marvin from the grave.

    Anyway, just getting back in touch with the real Joe. The kids got Trap music and Gangsta Rap, oh Good Lord! Save the kids! Ha ha ha! Thanks for the review brother! Joe

  45. Spivkurl
    Spivkurl on Mon 27th Jul 2015 - 6 years ago

    I like the composition here, as well as the gentle mix/master. I am a bit sceptic about it being a band playing their instruments, but this does not take away from the effort. Definitely the lack of brickwalling and such things is the most 60s style thing about this for me. It's something I miss a little bit. All in all a fun track!

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Hey Spiv! I am glad you noticed. I deliberately tried my darndest to keep the loudness at bay, although during my mastering I was tempted. Back then there wasn't all that much loudness then and I knew I'd be smashed for a loud master. Anyways, Dubstep, Trap, Trance and House are typically loud. By I know you draw the line when it comes to loudness. I am getting it touch with old Joe Bro. Thanks so much! Joe

    Oh man....this is awesome Joe...I`m at a bit of a loss for words (not usual for me)...so I`ll just listen & say thanks my friend.....I could handle lots more of these...good memories...band mates...fun...music everywhere....Ed

    Reply by JoeFunktastic

    Hey there Ed! Oh how I yearn for those golden days in music. If by some strange happenstance I got time warped back there just for the music and back again I would not mind that brother.

    Sometimes the music of a person says a lot about them. I just miss those days, it brings back found memories. Thanks for the review. Joe

    Greeting Ronabo! Thank you there my very kind sir. The kids today and their noise just don't get it. Gangsta Rap they say? Ah ha ha! It seems like the very soul of music is almost gone, the love and the excitement nearly all gone.

    Well that you so much for stopping by and reviewing, I appreciate that. Joe
