Want to start your morning with a little extra bump? A little shuffle and pop? Try our Funk By The Ounce Blend! A partnership with the people behind the DC based PPU record label. This coffee blends Guatemalan and Brazillian coffees.
This collaboration was born out of a desire to help musicians and record labels diversify their revenue stream. PPU receives a $1 for every bag sold and it helps them continue to spread/create amazing music. Label head Andrew Morgan put together a special Funk, Boogie, Soul mix for the occasion!
More About PPU:
People's Potential Unlimited (PPU) is a very special record label in DC known for discovering and reissuing some of the weirdest and best ultra-rare boogie, funk, and other dance music from the 70s, 80s, 90s as well as a new generation of beat-makers who draw inspiration from these strange worlds of sound.
Started by music fiend Andrew Morgan and operated out of his basement, PPU’s is a world that re-imagines funk as outsider art and cosmic-boogie as a modern variant of folk music. What would it be like if your school janitor made rap music in the broom closet or if someone in middle management still nursed a dream of being the next El Debarge? The label’s roster includes Robbie M., Dwight Sykes, Leroy Ace Miller, Flick, George Franklin Smallwood, Uku Kuut—names found on demo tapes abandoned to time, or else unearthed online. But PPU also pushes the present into the future. Newest members of the PPU family include DC favorite sons Beautiful Swimmers, Dreamcastmoe, King Pari, PPU VHS Video mulcher Luke Wyatt, LA beathead Benedek, Vancouver space cadets Pender Street Steppers and Miami sound machine Psychic Mirrors and Mickey de Grand IV. There's a palpable scent of both mustiness and freshness to be found in all of PPU's grooves though, the smell of funk from a parallel dimension.
