German groove aficionado Freethinker Funk Essence plays a mean sunshine game with two delicious bossa blends. "Emanuelle" is built up around two distinct elements; a sparkling nylon string arpeggio and a snake-like conga roll. The result is a beautiful sunset jam that should keep you warm as the temperatures drop. "Raspberry Jam" taps into the soulful house roots for inspiration. Coming on strong like a Reel People jam with its dominant piano riff and flickering guitar tones, it's quite similar to Marcus Nikolai's "Bushes" from way back in the turn-of-the-century day. Remix-wise Stereo 77 and Mister T fire shots. The former gets their acid house stutter on with some shimmering churchy tones while the latter adds a juicy organic funk swing and array of dubby effects. Tasty.
