Time Capsule is CounterCulture’s annual trip down memory lane, paying tribute to the
legends that have inspired generations of musicians. Homegrown bands, musical
collectives & famous DJ’s honour their musical inspirations through reinterpreted sets
every Saturday in August.

With some 800 songs in his repertoire, James Brown has influenced contemporary artists from virtually every popular music genre — rock, soul, jazz, R&B included. His polyrhythmic funk vamps virtually reshaped dance music , and his impact on hip-hop, in particular, was huge.

stage after he had worked himself to exhaustion during his performance.
