What would Sound Exhibitions do without chief resident DJ Moy? Here is again having already worked up a sweat on this week's Retro Funk Part 3. On Know You Like The Way We Get Down", he broadens the emphasis beyond the former's 1970s focus. "Funkoick" edits down a synthy, digital funk jam from about 1985 and turns it to a shimmering dubby workout, next "Feels Good" is all about crisp electro soul, whilst the title track takes a searing guitar riff, loops it over a thumping house kick and throws in some wayward sax to up its Balearic credentials.
DJ Moy is a trooper. He is the guy in the Sound Exhibitions engine room working around the clock to keep the whole thing going. Don't believe us? Well this week alone he has two important releases on the label. The first of the aforementioned two releases is Retro Funk Part 3, a three-track mini-comp that concentrates on revitalising long lost gems from the er, retro funk genre. First up is "Funk Floor", a viciously funky 70s clavinet attack, followed swiftly by the tight and quirky elastic boogie of "Super Funk" and the warm and lazy grooves of closer "Hot".
