Review: This EP from Toby O'Connor, coming on Fingerman's Belfast-based Hot Digits Music, is sitting in our disco section but would be equally at home flying under the jazz-funk flag. Dexterously finger-picked jazz geetar and parping horns form the backbone of most of the six tracks - the only real exception being 'Back In 95', which delegates the hefty lifting to Hammonds and flutes instead, and which comes accompanied by a more immediately club-friendly Fingerman's Nude Disco Remix. If you dig the likes Roy Ayers, Dexter Wansell or Deodato, you'll find plenty to enjoy here.
Review: Electronic jazz, funk and instrumental disco sensations from Toby O'Connor. Alongside its swinging horns, moods to swing and lonely trumpets, rattling finger percussion, cocktail effect atmospherics and a plodding bassline sees "Busta Boogie" go deep! "Loosey Goosey" then brings in an exotica vibe to the mix with a funky guitar lead, ragtime trumpets furthermore and a classic tech house groove. Drippin' with Dynamite!
