South London production team JetTricks have scored a home run on this one-off release - a cover of The O'Jays' timeless "For The Love of Money". The duo, who have collaborated with many different musicians over the past few years have even hooked up Fun Lovin' Criminals' Huey Morgan to play a blistering solo over the tune, which keeps things on the live, raw and funky side and features vocals from Detroit legend Marcus Malone.
South Londoner soul and funk producers JetTricks reach their second album in style, with Better Than Real Life sounding bigger and broader, thanks to a wide-range of guest vocalists over the12 tracks. Faye Houston makes a spine-tingling contribution on the epic and stirring opener "Home", while more traditional slinky nu-funk is represented on tracks like "I'm Going Back" and "Stephanie" (featuring Shawn Lee). Former Fun Lovin' Criminal Huey Morgan lends his drawling NYC vocals on the excellent "See Us Through" too.
London duo Jettricks corralled an impressive line-up of contributors for their successful 2012 album, Better Than Real Life. Now they've resurfaced to repeat the trick on Ten Out Of The Box. This new album sees the outfit once again rope in some top musical talents to contribute to ten cover versions of popular tunes, many of which being unlikely selections indeed. Over the course of the LP we see Queen's Dragon Attack turned into vintage sounding funk, Basement Jaxx's Where's Your Head At? reimagined as gentle folktronica and Owner Of Lonely Heart by Yes mutated into lo-fi Latin grooviness.
