Boogie-soul re-edit whizz, Wonkar, first introduced us to his not inconsiderable skills back in 2014 with Wilder on Midnight Riot. He's been brewed up a second release and he's chosen the height of summer to release it. Despite being less than 120bpm, "Do U Feel" is a perky '80s funk jam with a serious case of Minneapolitis: all marching stomps, quirky synth, cowbells and strong basslines.
Four quintessential examples of editing finesse as newcomer Wonkar explores his extensive soul and boogie collection. With full emphasis squared on the slinky basslines, slower tempos and languishing grooves, each cut is a shimmering highlight in itself. He's also done shown some sensitivity to the art of digging without going too obscure. Notable moments include the stuttering '80s drum-heavy repurpose of Xena's "On The Upside" and the chubbed up low-end of Starpoint's "Last Night". There's also some cheeky Gap Band references buried deep in this killer EP too. Get this upside your head as soon as possible!
