Review: Four tracks from the occasional duo of Prosper (French producer Romain Coolen) and Stabfinger (Italy's Nicola Atlan) get the remix treatment. 'Get Out Of My Life', as remixed by Loo & Placido, fuses blues, Caribbean and hip-hop influences into an unlikely whole that works better than you might expect, while the Loils & Fruckie remix of the same track drops the steel drums and has a kind of robotic funk vibe. AGFA & Trotter's mix of 'Drive By Pony' has a Plumps-ish feel, with the rap vocal st-st-st-st-stuttered up to the max, before the Kibosh mix of 'Fire My Pony' completes the EP on more of a straight-up funk tip.
Review: Self-proclaimed "funkmaster" Prosper is a keen collaborator, with each of his previous releases being made in cahoots with another producer. Given this history, it's little surprise to find that his latest outing is collaborative affair, too. Lead cut "So Classy, So Nasty" sees him join forces with Adam Polo for the very first time, with the duo wrapping choice rap vocal samples around rubbery synth-bass, Chic style disco-funk guitars, swirly synths and mid-tempo nu-disco beats. Elsewhere on the EP, Propsper is in collaboration with regular studio buddy Stabfinger. They offer up "Big Bamboo", a bouncy, Kraak & Smaak style fusion of fuzzy funk horns, fizzing P-funk electronics, talkbox vocals, big builds and slap-bass-happy grooves, and the cheery, bongo-driven trip into dancefloor funk territory that is "Time To Go Back".
