Grover Washington Jr - Knucklehead - the reason you got up this morning but didnt know it yet
Fat Larry's Band - Act Like You Know - act like you know, but click it anyway. unbelievably nasty bass.
Spiral Starecase - More Today Than Yesterday - undeniable groove
Archie Bell and The Drells - Tighten Up - smoov and spreadable
Flying Lotus - 1983 - not funk i know. but ive been hooked on this line for a while. unbelievable. originally im sure it was funk...
Lonnie Liston Smith - Expansions - i believe this is the origin of this line; i know fatboy slim has mixed with it from a different song.
Bob James - Night Crawler - jesus. (not really)
Jimmy Bo Horne - Is It In? - not on last.fm, but find it. funkiest two-note bassline, guaranteed.
Curtis Mayfield - Kung Fu
Quincy Jones - Summer in the City - nightmares on wax sampled this a while back, classic cut.
