Review: Cover versions don't get more scrumptious than those penned by Eat More Cake. Taking the Womack & Womack classic, they've given the track a sultry new lease of life with organic instrumentation and Emily May's purring vocals. Jayl Funk develops the organic nature of the original neatly with soft guitar plucks and a thick warm groove. Jump The Gun, meanwhile, flip the vibe entirely with a pumping old school house jam peppered with cool speed garage samples and far-away vocal effects. Finally D Funk gets all slinky and strutty with his silky glitch twist. A really cool release - the only teardrops will be of those who miss out on this.
Review: Mash-up hero Tom Showtime has assembled quite a cast for his latest production Funk Pants, a reworking of one of his older tunes. His own rework sees samples of funny old stage banter introducing some big tough breaky funky hip-hop madness. Remix-wise, BadboE ups the jerky funk, D-Funk adds some electro bass and breaks, Roast Beats goes brass-centric but it's Showtime's regular partner, DJ Maars, who wins out with his hyped reggae 're-skank'.
Review: Here we have a meeting of minds from down under, with Aussie producers Sugar Ray Johnson joining forces with D-Funk for what they explain is a more disco orientated release that what we might normally be used to hearing from them. SRJ and D-Funk are big fans of Grits N Gravy, so that's where they've decided to stay, delivering two subtle vintage edits for our listening pleasure. "Gove Me Your Love" delicately tweaks and phases a shuffly old Curtis Mayfield number, whilst "Hold Me Back" adds some extra housey thump to some prime old crackly soul/funk loops. Ace!
