It's pretty clear from the get go that 80's Child is all about going back to the future. As the door of his Delorean opens upwards and the billowing smoke clears, we see that he has brought back four 80s dancefloor wonders which he sensitively retweaks with contemporary flair. "Keep On Lovin Me" is that kind of lazy electro-boogie jam that's all about that crisp snare drop, "Tryin' To Get Over" is more your upbeat brassy funk number, "Serious" is Donna Allen's 1986 snarling New Jack beast of a tune and "Plane Love" end things with a soul-meets-Latino funkout. Hot stuff!

Afrolicious are a collective hailing from San Francisco who can really play like they did back in the golden days of funk. Culled from their recent LP, California Dreaming, "Pleasure Power" is a pulsating Afrobeat-influenced roller boasting scintillating bass and bonkers percussion. DJ Smash delivers a four to the floor disco-house rework and there's even instrumental versions provided for those serious funk heads who live for the pure groove alone.
