Why Your Soul Needs This: If you're into soul, funk, hip-hop, funk, house, break beats, disco — whether you like to dance or just listen — this mixtape is bound to please. Trust me. The Funk Hunters are a Toronto-based duo who create some of the best mixes around for getting down. They churn it out, sparking our interest with stuff we already know and love — De La Soul, Chali 2na, Krafty Kuts, Snoop Dogg — and mixing in some awesome novelties to produce a collection of beats that is all their own. In their own words, "The Detour has no rules, no genre constraints; just a worldwide snapshot of music handpicked by The Funk Hunters to move your mind, body, and soul." #09 is one of the best.
