The Hungry Ghosts (Jason Brock, U.S.A.) 3:27

Track 06

Luck + Death: home page — Amazon — Kobo

Before travelling to Mexico to meet with the charismatic head of the Suerte y Muerte cult, Gat needs someone to set up the meeting. Enter the Hungry Ghosts, a Japanese criminal outfit that has relocated to Los Angeles.  Gat’s done work for them in the past in relation to some of their non-criminal activities.

This track is what’s playing in the Ghosts’ house when Gat visits.

I have a weak spot for funk a mile wide. Bootsy Collins, Sly Stone, Tower of Power–awesome! Unfortunately none of them were available for the soundtrack.  Fortunately, Jason Brock was, via this track which I absolutely love.

Jason Brock is a long-time independent musician and the founder of ArtisTech Media, which is helping to build a state-of-the-art online music label with a close knit circle of talented musicians, artists, and web developers.  Creative Commons transferred operations of its remix site, ccMixter.org, to ArtisTech in 2009. Brock frequently produces remixes and hosts a podcast entitled The Hook. His debut solo album was Plant the Seed.

I also used an excerpt from The Hungry Ghosts as the soundtrack to one of the two video trailers for Luck + Death, which you can watch below (you can watch the other one over on track [02]).
