Review

Describing themselves as "disco humans", Mexican outfit The Velvet Stripes are a re-edit and original production crew with a firm focus on the dancefloor. "The Funk Call" not only marks their debut for Furious Mandrill but also the collective's most high profile release to date. There's much to set the pulse racing throughout, from the Latin house/nu-disco fusion cheeriness of opener "Rumba, Samba, Rambo" - all sleazy chanted vocal refrains, sub-bright piano stabs and heavy percussion - to the filter-sporting, bass-heavy disco revisionism of closing cut "Instant Funk". Elsewhere, "Tony Grey" is heavy, effects-laden rearrangement of an old Afro-disco/Afro-funk gem by, you guessed it, Tony Grey, while "Dancing Shoes" is a particularly sleazy and weighty take on a throbbing, Italo-disco era dancefloor favourite.
