Review: Australian disco-house-electrofunk fusionist Brevil has been a busy boy over the last couple of years; in 2013 alone he released no less than seven singles on his digital-only Electric Larry imprint. Here he delivers his first EP of 2014, a curiously off-beat saunter through contemporary deep house with his usual synth-funk, R&B and disco influences. Check the pitched-down male vocals and odd guitar solos of "High Pressure", or the swung, jaunty synth bass and celebratory disco vocal samples of opener "Give Me The Funk". Best of all, though, is the hypnotic, delay-laden late night bounce of "Brown Love" - a midtempo treat blessed with more classic vocal samples that sounds primed for peaktime plays.
Review: Despite the allusion to the famous sandwich toaster in his moniker, there's little evidence of cheese to be found in the work of Aussie nu-disco fella, Brevil. Electric Larry is his own label, and here he bigs up the imprint once again with "Larry's Ya Daddy Volume 2" featuring four slices of sizzling soulful cuts highlights of which include the slo-mo soulful Paradise Garage vibes of "Happy Music", the dreamy funk loops of "Hit" and best of the lot, the sultry and hypnotic electro-disco of "Lonely".
Review: Just like his toastie namesake, Aussie disco-guy, Brevil, is hard on the outside and soft on the inside. "Get Up" is all about the tough house beats on the outside but inside is some choice emotional disco samples. Like the sandwich, these three tunes are also scalding - the title track is all sharp funk licks and loopy bass and searing orchestration, "Cheaters Groove" is dark, sweaty tech-funk and "Looking Good In LA" is soulful electro-house at its weirdest, which is no bad thing.
Review: The enigmatic Brevil - Australia's boogie don - continues his nu-disco pandemonium on the Electric Larry imprint. It's summertime music from start to finish, where tracks like "Stop" and "Love @ 117" are just too funky not to swing to! "Walters Groove" is a sort of Moodymann-style sample workout, where grooving rhythms meet jacking vocals, but "Hot 3" must be the crowning jewel of the lot and one which shows Brevil's inherent musicality and production skills - don't miss!
Review: Possibly named after his favourite retro toasted sandwich maker, Brevil is an Australian disco producer currently on his third outing for Kosta Ellis' Superbreak imprint. His sound is low-slung and dirty and any of the four tracks here are guaranteed to get everybody in the mood for some disco love. Highlights include the loopy and hypnotic "Slow N Low", the shimmering female funk of "Never Gonna Stop" and the rumbling bass and delayed drums-fest that is "Turn U On".
