Review: No, it's not Rowland Rat on the cover of this new EP, but the sounds contained therein could almost hail from the 80s. Except that this producer doesn't rip off the sound of that era, instead he pays homage to it by attempting to update it in a sympathetic way. He succeeds too with five contemporary-meets-vintage cuts that mix elements of boogie, soul and funk. Some of our fave retro jams here include the shimmering, soft bleep boogie of Focus, the cut-up breaks workout "Best In The World" (featuring Cheshire) and the tough grooves of rock-step jam "Good Timed".
Things That You Do (feat Father Funk) - (5:57) 110 BPM
Review: A producer well known for his unapologetic love of all things 80s, Slynk greets 2017 with this new one-track offering. "Things That You Do" is a light and breezy jaunt into mid-80s boogie territory, featuring a 'slinky' funk bassline that meanders around punchy drums, warbly voicebox excursions and trumpet from the Herb Alpert school of Diamonds. Time to order a Mai Tai, don a loud Hawaiian shirt and start moving! Infectious stuff.
