Review: Pan-continental collaboratives CMC & Silenta and The Funk Hunters have previously ruffled feathers with two releases on Westwood Recordings and now they're back for a third time with "Do This For You". It's a double-barrelled assault of a single, with tough, chromium-plated break beats, shimmering' 80s funk synth licks and a rap from Chali 2NA that includes a reference to Barney Rubble's sweater. What more do you want? Oh, maybe a VIP mix that strips everything down to the bare bones funk? Boom!
Review: A bona fide nu-funk original with a truly international backbone comprised of Germany (CMC & Silenta), Canada (The Funk Hunters) and the US (See-I). The result: a beautifully instrumented booty-shaker that's heavy on the shiny organs, an even heavier on the low-end funk and a breakdown that's so majestic you expect a prince to stride in on a horse at any minute. To top it off, See-I's vocals give "Shock Rollin" real identity and edge - they haven't been fronting the Thievery Corporation's live outfit for 15 years for nothing you know. A seriously cool piece of music.
