During the 70s library music era, some of Europe’s leading jazz, classical and avantgarde musicians took part in composing and playing, while many were involved just once, others like Alan Hawkshaw penned thousands of usable themes for different library companies.
“Dramatic Funk Themes Vol.1” is a collection of such gems, all of which originate from the archives of the Themes International Music Library. Soundtracks for scenes which did not exist at the time - sometimes action-packed, dramatic or driving - such as a high speed car chase - or sometimes more laid-back and relaxed like crusing in a ragtop through the city. These are the scenes played out over a musical backdrop loaded with wah-wah guitars, deep basslines, rhodes, clavinets, analogue synthesizers, hammond organs, flutes, razor-sharp brass, groovy percussion and solid drum beats.
