The Captain aka Fab Samperi is one of the hottest names in Ghetto Funk right now. What's ghetto funk? Take one listen to these funky as f*** tracks and you won't be stood there all gormless for long. With the help of Italian producers PhonoMatt & Tommyboy for something a little more D&B than your average wobble forays. Snapping jungle breaks and ragga sounds into place over funky bass, it's a naughty little splash of sunshine. With a heavy moombahton remix from BadboE rounding off the proceedings, even if you weren't sure how to classify it, we bet you were dancing.
Dark and dirty beats for grimy night-time revelry, this EP shines in the darkness like streetlamps on the wet London pavement. Gremlinz and Homemade Weapons wouldn't know about that though, being that they're from Toronto and Seattle respectively - similar precipitation problems, different continents. Heavy and minimal, just the way we like our Samurai releases, the experimental Gremlinz sound in "Mu-Onna" is phenomenal, and Collinjah also smashes his verses with dancehall panache in each of his appearances. With influences stretching from dub to ambient electronica, no two tracks bolt from the same starting blocks. It's a unique release, but did you expect anything less?
