Drunk on heavy Craig Charles support, Bristol chain-funkers Mako & Bristow get mucky on Breakbeat Paradise with four more floor firecrackers. "Twist & Shout" fuses various versions of the classic rock n' roll song over a snippy breakbeat tempo, "Funky Jive" is a schooling in Bo Diddly business while "If Stax Ain't A Reason" takes us on a way trip to Memphis and finally "Funk Am Im No Good" flips Winehouse into the funkiest homosapien on the planet. Ridiculously funky.
If you're gonna be any sort of captain, it's fair to say most people would opt for being a captain of space. Certainly this Brooklyn based collective agree, donning this intergalactic moniker to present their radical take on soul, jazz and RnB. Following a self-released hit on Bandcamp, they've been snapped up by Tru Thoughts for a release later this year. In the meantime they're treating us to a two-track teaser featuring the soft and shimmery groover "Easier" and the deeper, more sensual "Remedy".
