Funk Music for the year 2006: I need suggestions for party music.

I'm making some CDs for a big birthday party. The general direction for the music is 70s-style funk and R&B. Okay, so I've got all the basics from that era: The Commodores, Parliament, Earth Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, Isaac Hayes, etc. That part's pretty standard. You know, a bunch of over-educated white thirty-somethings gettin' wild on the weekend.
What I'd like to do though is mix in some contemporary stuff that fits in with this genre. I'm trying to avoid having the music be just a time warp to 1976 but I want to stay in the groovy, funky, get-down vibe. So what current music/groups/artists should I be checking out that convey a similar sense?
My collection of Belle & Sebastian, Radiohead, Neko Case, and Broken Social Scene is not offering a lot of help.
