The range of funky nuggets at Florian Keller's disposal is quite extraordinary. Off the back of his "Party Keller" club night in Munich, he's made a name for himself as a peerless selector of old and new funk and boogie across Europe. But this compilation on Compost really pushes the boat out -a staggering collection of rarities that will instantly become firm favourites in your collection. The slow proto-rap of Peter Giger's "Here Come The Family" kicks off the compilation in style -a head-nodding beat embellished with a variety of percussion sounds from the Swiss legend -everything from steel drums to thumb pianos. Some incredible covers dominate this mix though -two from Gino Dentie -namely his version of B.T. Express' "Express" and a remake of Brass Construction's epic "Movin'". Keller also keeps an unlikely version of a classic staple of funk fans for the last tune -an acoustic-led vamp around Archie Bell and The Drells' "Tighten Up" by psych-rockers The Nazz. It's a fittingly fun end to a collection that's stuffed to the gills with rare yet rewarding funk both new and old.
