Review: Cornwall-Lisbon pairing Daytoner and Mr Bird deliver Pressure Recordings with the pair's long awaited debut Earthly Crowd Cabin; a two-take single of funky B-boy-B-girl breaks and beats! Featuring the soulful lyrics of Daisy B and some dapper rhymes from MC The Audible One in, it's all about the jazz-funk and NYC lowdown groove of Daytoner's Instrumental too. Get some!
Review: You can most certainly tell we are moving into the height of summer as Daytoner steps out with a five track funk bonanza, courtesy of the Cabin Pressure Recordings team. Kicking off with the super groovy sounds of 'Salsational', which progresses pleasingly into the smooth pianos and call and response of 'Bang Bang'. Next, we move slightly more funky as the catchy vocal lines of 'Ye Mele' and the classic disco drum work of 'Comanche' wade into view. Finally, we finish off this very eclectic body of work with 'Bebo's Beat', pulling together Rat Pack style brass sections and subtle vinyl scratches for one hell of a finale.
Review: Two classy and authentic-sounding slices of 'new old' funk/soul here, coming from Daytoner, a Cornwall-based six-piece whose name should be familiar to most scene devotees following the success of their 2018 debut album 'Off The Hook'. 'My Sweet Baby' is an uptempo affair, reminiscent most immediately of the Dap Kings but with enough northern soul-like energy in the beats department to make it a safe bet for the mod clubs, too. 'Shout Love' plunders an altogether deeper, dirtier side of the 60s soul scene for inspiration, with gloriously raw Hammonds, blaring sax and testifyin' male/female soul vox.
Review: It's the third edition of Cabin Pressure Recording's Shedits series, which means we're involved with Daytoner laying down some utter truth in the form of blissfully raw dance edits spanning everything from 60s soul to 90s trip hop. "Apache Street" features that mythical break in action amid some ludicrously addictive singing, while "Moonstomping" goes off on a little ska trip, "Feel It" provides us with a gorgeous example of UK 90s house at its most break-heavy, and "I Feel It Like That" is the sexy sister of the bunch, a seductive soul excursion tailor made for the lovers. Bliss.
Review: Daytoner appeared on many a music lover's radar with album Sunburst Radio back in 2012. Since then he's gone underground, but now re-emerges into daylight with four feel good anthems. The sound of the EP is split right down the middle with "Stevies Stomp" being a raucous re-jig of Wonder's Uptight and "Smokin'" being a more bewitching take on similar 60s soul, whilst there's a rockier 70s sound in the second half. "Keiths Soup Thing" is big beat take on classic Stones and "Like Jumping" is an effervescent slice of jump up, pop-ska at its sunniest.
