When I was 17, my friends and I squeezed ourselves into a Parliament-Funkadelic set at a festival in Seattle. One by one, the legendary musicians sauntered onstage, each slowly filling the sonic holes of a psychedelic 65 BPM funk organism. George Clinton rode this singular snail groove into view, hypnotizing us for what seemed like a month before we could break his spell. This methodical beat gently soundtracked our entire afternoon, and four hours later we checked back in to find the band still grinding on that same introductory groove! Flash forward 20 years, and I still hear that glorious bump whenever I'm in a large crowd.
