It's nearly been a year since Israeli producer Michael Emeth (aka Shimi Sonic) delivered his last single, the successful collaboration project True Stories. Now he's back to what he does best - reworking old tunes in a contemporary booty-shakin' style. Here he tackles two vintage Brazilian funk cuts - "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" takes the original's sunshine vocals and marries them to a discreet, rolling groove while "Esperar Pra Ver" gets a harder retro funk workover. Classy!
Four new crucial remixes and edits from Israeli producer Shim Sonic on "Re:Funked" as he breathes new life into The Doors on "Soul Kitchen" and "LA Woman", with a set of punchy nu-funk breaks gelling nicely with the funky-rockin' originals. Lulu's excellent freakbeat classic "Love Loves To Love, Love" also gets the Shimi Sonic treatment, as well as the Fab Four on the booty-spanking "Drive My Car".
Shimi Sonic grabs the last of this season's rays with a new end-of-Summer release on UK label Brown Sugar. Having previously reworked classics by the likes of The Doors, Shimi Sonic has now recorded a series of collaborations with various international artists; British soul singer Curtis Field takes the lead on the searing Philly soul of "In The Shadows" and Israel's own Karen Perla bellows on the assertive "Got To Move". A returning Curtis Field joins Ireland's Mr Highspeed for the ironically slow motion grooves of "Do What". Shimi Sonic himself wraps things up with a wah wah-heavy funk jam called "Brothers".
