Nu-funk breaks label Funk Blasters drop four new gems from the Itchy Bastards on this new EP - led by the chunky P-funk of "Funk Iz Us" and backed nicely by the old-school rap of "Movin' Machine" and the more disco-paced, brass-flecked "Hang On".
Serious party vibes abound as El Salvadorian Itchy Bastards add three new funk nuggets to their armoury. "Make Money" takes Busta to trumpet school, "Lemme Talk" looks to Clinton for some world dominance (George, not Bill) and "Roundacorna" is a deeper, jacking affair with a lolloping slap-bass riff and some lovely organ and wukka-wukka guitar twangs on the main hook.
It's 80s time! Eat your Filofaxes. Buy low. Sell high. Have rubbish hair! Or... Just get your funky selves down on this retro-funky four piece. Spanish soundclowns Itchy Bastards give EU's "Doing Da Butt" a raw rub, ensuring not to take any of its authentic timely class. Morlack, meanwhile, takes what sounds like a Paula Abdul snippet and blends it with every shade of block party on "Give It Here" and gets cosmic with on well known vocal from "Let No Man Put Asunder" on "Monie 2009". Finally Itchy Bastards finish the show with some lovely glockenspiel action. Naturally.
Essential house party business here on Boogie Boutique, with a split EP from Morlack and Itchy Bastards that includes a free track. Morlack drops four vocal-led jams - namely "White Shake", "Back In Love", "Ying Yang Pulp" and the freebie, "Lively Up Yourself" - all of which are positively dropping with insouciant funk and boogie breaks flavour. The magnificently monikered Itchy Bastards drop a brace of tracks, with the slick guitar riffage and cut-up rhythms of "I'm Hot" alongside the tougher filtered disco-funk strut of "Itchy Brick". We challenge you to listen to this EP and not smile!
