Cork-based nine-piece The Cosmic Funk Band are well known to funk enthusiasts, having toured the UK (and beyond) extensively over the last decade. Here, they make their debut for Yam Who's ISM Records with an EP of remixes of tracks previously featured on self-released singles. Jay-Ru provides two impressive remixes; a warm, baggy, organic deep house interpretation of "Dynamite", and a super-smooth, impeccably deep take on "Our Time". Elsewhere, Yam Who and Goldboy each provide a version of "House of Sand". The later's take is woozy and evocative, sitting somewhere between acid-flecked deep house and chiming nu-disco. Predictably, it's the label boss who steals the show, turning the same track into a grandiose chunk of warm, immersive and richly musical electrofunk.
