Review: When most daddies get home, you know you're in for it over some misdemeanour or other. Not this one, when he gets home it's all about the party. Father Funk wouldn't know deep or dark music if it came up and slapped him in the face Tango-style. Instead he does what he does best, like here where he presents five fruity, happy tunes to make us all forget our woes. Some of our faves include the buzzy-electro-bas-and-go-go-beats of the title track, the frantic funk workout of "Block Party" and the 80s soul-sampling hip-house sing-a-long "Soul City".
Review: An EP that really does live up to its name: Everything about Father Funk's first full EP for Scour genuinely is phenomenal. Bursting at the seams with a full flavoured rainbow of grooves, we're spoilt for choice: the Bootsy-level chaos of "Love Shack", the Cuban heel clicking fiesta fire "Gringo Lingo", the surprisingly salubrious disco licks of "Filthy" and, of course, the Van Helden salute that is the title track. "Phenomenal Funk" = phenomenally funky. More please daddio.
