The mysterious Brian SNR from 012, South Africa; all we know is that he's naughty but nice! Let's Dance" is some of the sleaziest deep disco funk you'll hear this year: think of a year 2016 re-incarnation of Right Said Fred and you'll get the right idea. And yes; there is one absolutely hot saxophone solo in this one, supported by some retro cliches of the best kind.
Given the nature of his re-edit work, it's perhaps unsurprising that there's little information out there about Brian Snr. All we know is that he's from South Africa, and the Nice 'N' Slow EP marks his first appearance on Disco Fruit, following a smattering of successful singles on other imprints. The title track is something of a rubbery, disco-funk treat, with the South African making merry with an elastic bassline, wah-wah laden guitars, taut horn lines and sleazy, spoken word vocals. The killer groove and occasional flute solos are emphasized further on the accompanying Dub Mix, before label boss Tonbe gives the track a subtle disco-house makeover.
Down for some loving and kisses but not doing the dishes? Speak to Brian. He's so frank about the topic he's written a whole tune about it. A pretty darn slinky spacey discofied tune at that. Big sax, lolloping bass and a surging sense of steamy sentiment, it's a real meltdown session of a jam from Cherry Cola. Loaded with a more groove focused dub mix, this is much more than a one-off quickie. Dish cloth not included.
Some hot nu-disco grooves from South African producer Brian Basil van Heerden here on the Wild Cat EP. He is founder and owner of the legendary vinyl store Camino Records, DJ since 1998, founder and owner of Strutmode Recordings - in addition to being one half of Janova Jacks and Southside High. From the slo-mo/lo-slung sleaze of "Funking It Up" and the title track - which is followed by by an electric rendition by label stalwarts Yam?Who and the late night boogie down groove of "Flashback" - it is clear that Brian Snr can bring the funk, whatever the occasion!
