Review: Last seen lurking on the label's cracking Pump Up The Funk collection, Devellis returns with his first full EP in a long, long time. Littered with samples and very cool grooves, the whole EP is a doozy but here's a few more details in case you're undecided; "High Freedom" is a summer-stunned block rocker with more sneaky hip-hop vox than a Compton recording booth. "Over & Under", meanwhile, takes a more laid back jazzier approach with a rap that doesn't sound too far away from Method Man. "Ryder Classic" takes us to a more authentic early 70s funk club and makes us swing until we're dazzled and dizzy while "Turtle Love" blends the Beasties with Daft Punk and whole series of lush horns. Ace.
Review: We're not quite sure why this German funk meister is so enthralled by lime sorbet in particular (other than that it tastes nice), but that is what he has chosen to dub his popular mix series. This third installment packs in a hefty 18 tracks and is available both as a continuous mix and as individual tracks too. Highlights include the mini Moog workout of QZ's remix of James Beige, the high-energy riff-o-rama of "Monsterjam" and the effervescent disco-funk of "This Sound".
Review: German funk baron Quincy gives us another fine slice of Lime Sorbet radio show with this 15 strong collection of nu funk gems. The faces are there - Basement Freaks with the butt-shaking cut n' paste party joint "City Jam" and Ursula with a retro-gaze car-chase "Tension" - but there's also refreshing presence of fringe nu funk players like Michael Devillis with the horn-hooting "Craziest Things" and Peurto Rican selector Stereo77 with his dusty, low swung bass wig out "Algeria". It's the work of a true selector, and the continuous mix simply proves Quincy can use the turntables as well as he can curate.
