Review: Producers and Manmade label bosses CMC and Silenta drop a new feast of electro breaks on Feature Breaks Vol 2, led by the funky force of "Is It True". The digital funk flows nicely thanks to the heavyweight bass and pounding breaks, drawn out nicely by The Funk Hunters on their remix. Another newie, "Get It On Now" also gets a nice range of remixes on this release - with MC Fava's vocals layered over nu-funk breaks by Basement Freaks and given a tech-skank on Tom Drummonds dubbed-out mix.
Review: Feel good breakbeat vibes are the order of the day as German duo CMC & Silenta serve up their first collaborative album. Loaded with cameo mic moments from the likes of Vanessa Iraci, MC Fava, Kawele, Linda Friedel, The Root Sellers and the legendary Ragga Twins, there's a true sense of party as we're led through all styles of party vibe. An ideal winter warmer that will grow and grow as you gear towards another summer, highlights include the Kraak & Smaak style disco boogie ("Where We Started From"), the sexy-smooth organ work and heavenly horn toots on "Love Is Drawn" and Madness-meets-Monkey Mafia musicianship of the album's title track. A very accomplished, not to mention funky, debut album.
