Dance Now - (3:05) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Review: An Australian based in London, producer Frankee More gives the occasional instalment of frothy party fun. There's no fear of groundbreaking sounds here or deep navel gazing, it's all about cheeky giggles on the dancefloor. Here we have another two such sizzlers to enjoy. First up, "This Feeling" fuses a laid-back electro-funk bassline with an impassioned soul vocal and a sax solo. On the digital flipside lurks "Dance Now", basically an update of C&C Music Factory's Everybody Dance Now that, if played at the right time, will blow the roof off any self-respecting house party. Job done.

Review: German groove aficionado Freethinker Funk Essence plays a mean sunshine game with two delicious bossa blends. "Emanuelle" is built up around two distinct elements; a sparkling nylon string arpeggio and a snake-like conga roll. The result is a beautiful sunset jam that should keep you warm as the temperatures drop. "Raspberry Jam" taps into the soulful house roots for inspiration. Coming on strong like a Reel People jam with its dominant piano riff and flickering guitar tones, it's quite similar to Marcus Nikolai's "Bushes" from way back in the turn-of-the-century day. Remix-wise Stereo 77 and Mister T fire shots. The former gets their acid house stutter on with some shimmering churchy tones while the latter adds a juicy organic funk swing and array of dubby effects. Tasty.

from $1.91
Review: Freethinker Funk Essence takes his time, never rushing to release stuff, nice n easy, totally chilled in a 70s sort of way. Unsurprisingly these 70s attitudes don't stop there, with the music firmly planted in the era of giant flares, chopper bikes and polyester shirts. Pretty every song on this here EP sounds like incidental music from classic cop show Starsky & Hutch: "The Spy Of Mrs Lee" is a suspense-filled shuffle with chiming keys, echoey wah-wah and baggy drums. Elsewhere "Record Store" is swaggering boogie strutter and "Quentin's Lost Movie" is a soft n' sensual see-through-negligee of a tune.

Review: Germany's funk fanatic Freethinker Funk Essence has cooked up four new steaming slices of boogie pie for all the groove starved souls out there. "The Revenge Of The Pusher" kicking things off with some accelerated rock guitar riffs, undulating organ work and Sly Stone style vocal snippets. Elsewhere "Too Drunk To Funk" is the sound of trumpets, bass and clavinets having a threesome whilst a funky drummer looks on and "Hot Sole Funk" updates the formula with sparse beats and plenty of modern attitude. Finally "Funky Bitch" is an all-out 60s Austin Powers style boogie down.

Review: We've not heard from German funkateer Freethinker Funk Essence since March. Perhaps he was as his own song goes, Too Drunk To Funk. Anyway its great to have him back rustling up three slices of steaming retro pie, with grooves excavated straight from the 70s. "Haight Ashbury" is all night walkin' in old San Francisco to the strains of wah-wah heavy funk, the stomping "Walk In The Park" incorporates bluesy slide guitar riffs and a brooding Tex Mex atmosphere, before "Saturday Morning Traffic" is more of a rolling jam with vintage organ chugs and layers upon layers of live instrumentation.
