DJ Soul Sister is Good to Go-Go

Last spring, Rare Essence tried to present a contemporary take on go-go with mixed results on Turn It Up. The album opens on a strong note with “V.I.P.,” which features the signature elements of the Washington D.C.-based funk sound—heavy, nimble percussion, call-and-response vocals, and a rolling groove that could go on for 20 minutes or the three and a half on the album.
