Charlie Brown Superstar is no stranger to a bit of space boogie, and the Alpaca Edits crew seems like the perfect place for him to socialise in. In fact, "Givin' It Up" is a lovely, laid-back chat-starter, the sort of banger you put on to impress that special person on a night out - what a bassline! Now that tune is difficult to beat, but "Goin' South" does a good job at delivering a highly sensual, dubbed-out house rush, "Never Gonna Stop" flaps its funky disco wings at a steady pace, and the excellent "Oh Yeah" ties this absolutely stellar EP off with a west-coast, blue-eyed soul kind of swagger - for fans of Ned Doheny. TIP!!
The lads and lasses behind Thunder Jam were clearly impressed by Charlie Brown Superstar's re-edit outings on Alpaca Edits and Sound Exhibitions, as they've given the producer the chance to showcase an expansive selection of reworks. The six-track Keep On is quietly impressive, with the producer variously chopping up and rearranging peak-time disco anthems ("Keep On", the filter-heavy "Ain't No Way"), rolling disco-funk (the slipped, tooled-up beats and horn-toting hustle of "Please Don't Stop"), Stephanie Mills ("Got My Eyes On You", a loopy disco-house update of "What Cha Gonna Do With My Lovin"), The Jackson Sisters and killer space funk (the dub disco thrills of "Chicken Lickin").
