Besides the unveiling of the initial performance lineup for Funk Parade, a new funky mix from DJ Qdup will also get you pumped for this year’s day-long festival, which is set to take place on Saturday, May 7.
The nearly 50-minute mix features a fresh new tune from two prominent names in the D.C. music community, Fort Knox Five and legendary soul artist Joe Quarterman, along with a few Funk Parade PSAs from notable D.C. acts like Rare Essence, Kokayi, Rufus Roundtree, Mustafa Akbar of Nappy Riddem, Empresarios and Congo Sanchez.
