Review: A nu-funk troubadour hailing from Israel, Shimi Sonic (aka Michael Emet), blazed a groovy trail for quite a few years before taking something of a sabbatical. Well now he's back and with an album in the pipeline too. Here, on the Hometown EP he's enlisted the talents of Rowetta, Kool Dee, Ella Joy Meir over four late night sizzlers - the gangsta shuffle of "So Fresh", the sing-along retro funker, " All You Funky Boyz", the up-tempo 60s soul-hop of "I Sing" and best of all, the dreamy, saucy grind of "The Way I Feel".

Review: It's nearly been a year since Israeli producer Michael Emeth (aka Shimi Sonic) delivered his last single, the successful collaboration project True Stories. Now he's back to what he does best - reworking old tunes in a contemporary booty-shakin' style. Here he tackles two vintage Brazilian funk cuts - "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" takes the original's sunshine vocals and marries them to a discreet, rolling groove while "Esperar Pra Ver" gets a harder retro funk workover. Classy!

Shimi Sonic - "Brothers" - (3:40) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.90
Review: Shimi Sonic grabs the last of this season's rays with a new end-of-Summer release on UK label Brown Sugar. Having previously reworked classics by the likes of The Doors, Shimi Sonic has now recorded a series of collaborations with various international artists; British soul singer Curtis Field takes the lead on the searing Philly soul of "In The Shadows" and Israel's own Karen Perla bellows on the assertive "Got To Move". A returning Curtis Field joins Ireland's Mr Highspeed for the ironically slow motion grooves of "Do What". Shimi Sonic himself wraps things up with a wah wah-heavy funk jam called "Brothers".

I'll Take You (Feat Rowetta) - (3:16) 144 BPM
from $1.90
Review: Tel Aviv's Shimi Sonic shows off his wide range of influences on this new EP for UK label Riddim Fruit. Opener "Supernova" even has a touch of the Pink Floyd about it, with a spacey two-chord jam fleshed out nicely by slide guitars and trumpets, while "Follow Up" mines a cumbia beat and features a fun, carefree vocal from Missin Red. The straight-up studio funk of "I'll Take You" featuring Rowetta on the mic is also well worth a listen if funky breaks are your weakness.

Review: 'It's Go Time' has a cinematic vibe with orchestral strings along side the expected funky guitar, bright sparkling twinkles lighten the mood. 'Los Chicas' is a fun track with a shuffling shaker, which will have you shimmying with the best of 'em. Moving in to 'Shimitronix' and we've got a really fusion of modern electronic from the sci-fi samples to the subtlety detected jutting undertone.

Review: As the days get longer and the sun begins to peep out from behind the clouds, thoughts begin to turn to summer nights and al fresco dancing. The lead cut on this EP - a Mouldy Soul remix of "Supernova" - sounds like it was tailor-made for dancing to in the sunshine. Its' breakbeat rhythm and low end bounce are perfectly complimented by some delightfully lazy trombone solos. Blend Mishkin continue the lazy, sun-blushed theme with a cosy downbeat interpretation of "Going Around", while Dephicit delivers a thoroughly breezy re-cut of "Follow Me". A dazzlingly bright EP is completed by a solid hip-hop-soul take on "I'll Take You" by El Bomba.

Review: Four new crucial remixes and edits from Israeli producer Shim Sonic on "Re:Funked" as he breathes new life into The Doors on "Soul Kitchen" and "LA Woman", with a set of punchy nu-funk breaks gelling nicely with the funky-rockin' originals. Lulu's excellent freakbeat classic "Love Loves To Love, Love" also gets the Shimi Sonic treatment, as well as the Fab Four on the booty-spanking "Drive My Car".

Review: Israeli funkster Shimi Sonic returns with a quad of party-minded nu-funk jams. "Hot Peach" is the slowest burning, soul-smouldering number in the pack; all strings, flutes and Shaft-style percussion. "Satellite Funk" ups the ante with a much more contemporary fusion of percussion and ragga vocals. "Boomin" takes a smoggy Led Zeppish bluesy jam session, beefs up the beats and adorns the chunky funk with a Black Rob vocal while "One Love" is all about the massive, not to mention euphoric, Hammond riffs. Peachy.
