George Clinton and Soul Clap

Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over forty R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.

Soul Clap is Boston DJ duo Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine. Follow them on Twitter here and like them on Facebook here.
