Review: Despite the name Funk Hunk is displaying some pretty foxy legs on the sleeve of "Feelin Hot". In fact he's rustled up some seriously sassy sounds here too. Three servings of prime late-70s and early-80s boogie is the order of the day, starting with the Rick James-esque title track, which tightens up the original ever so slightly by adding a few sharper edits and loops. Next "Don't' Stop Believin'" is smooth as a gnat's chuff disco-soul of the highest order and finally "It's Friday Night" wraps things up perfectly with the Junior-style sharp UK funk vibes. Slick!
Review: The XX can do no wrong it seems with recent second album, Coexist, debuting at number one and receiving a Brit Award nomination. Here we have album track "Sunset" plucked from its tracklisting and given a going over by Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules & Love Affair fame. It's a match made in heaven as Coexist was inspired by the kind of dance music that Foxman and co make; as a result of this we get a lovely melancholy slice of breathy and deep Chicago house that's in no rush to go anywhere, which is no bad thing!
