Review: Hats off to Kng Edits: it's unusual for us to get through a whole EP's worth of re-edits without being able to name at least one or two of the sources, but they've dug deep enough to leave us baffled here! What you end up once they've finished, though, are a couple of hypnotic soul/disco chugathons ('Give Me What You Got', 'Jackhotel'), one piano-tastic workout for the jazz dancers ('HigJaz') and one fat-assed funker from the Fatback/Ohio Players school of thought. Any and all of which, served to a proper disco/funk floor, should do the most efficiently.
Review: Despite its' matter-of-fact title, the Four Cuts EP is something of a departure for FKR Recordings. It's an all-star affair, designed to showcase the re-edit work of a trio of scalpel-wielding party starters. Mr Given Raw kicks things off with the impassioned, low-slung gospel funk of "Get Up On Girls", before label boss KS French sets aside his filters and house beats in favour of some swinging, bumpin' disco-funk goodness on the rather good "Kiss My Baby". The package is completed by two reworks from Miami native KNG Edits, who recently made his debut on Rebel Hearts. Choose between the effortlessly sweet, groovy and dewy-eyed "So Right", and the camp disco explosion that is "Shoot (Dancefloor Edit)", easily the EP's strongest moment.
