This Ep is fun, zany and full of funky Latin flavours. 'Hello Everybody' starts proceedings in a wacky way, with its laid back samba style beat, the bassline's slow moving bouncy vibe and the crazy vocal, it could be the soundtrack stoner flick. 'Que Tu Balies' is so cool, mixing the funkiness breakbeat with the soulfulness of disco and the sexiness of Latino, this is a winner. 'Limbo Dance' is an infectious little number with whistles and shakers, it will certainly whisk you away to a sunny Brazilian carnival, but the manipulated vocal and oddly pitched sub bring a a sinister edge. 'No Somos' is the funkiest of the bunch, with a sexy vocal, jazzy piano and cow bell. So. Much. Fun!
It's number 46 in the Katakana Edits series, and we got The Worldstylers alongside DJ Claire to lay down some hybrid breakbeats for ya! "Rub A Duby Stylee" is just pure fun, a tune that manages to blend dancehall together with disco and nu-skool breaks, but "Be Bam Pop" isn't exactly far behind on the freak-o-meter thanks to its jazzy nuances and merry-go-round melodies. "Space Frequency" is the final slice of oddball beats, a beat-heavy, mid-tempo breakbeat scorcher that would certainly get some attention from the likes of peeps like The Scratch Perverts.
The Worldstylers (a brand new act from Savages Y Suefo) deliver two absolute party-jammers. Exploring the creative potential of blues and electronic fusion, both "Put It Right Here" and "Gimme One More" are riddled with rich vocals, heaving harmonicas and big swinging bass. The former is the stomper of the pair with a jacking, 4/4 stomp while the latter takes the nu-funk route with swinging breakbeats and a cool-but-confident groove. Both absolutely smash it. Throw in myriad remixes from the likes of Ordiman (filtered funky house) and Niles Philips (Thievery Corporation style slinky silk) and this really is a special package.
