80 minutes of top funky sounds from the cream of the u.k. underground
live club scene c/o this beautifully eclectic compilation..... turn it
up! at last an honest collection of deep, fresh, funky minds far away
from the clutches of planet bland. sit back, listen and taste the truth,
a funky chill all mashed up and full of soul. we're talking bands for
the love of it dueling breaks, hip hop, drum'n'bass, trip hop, divas,
drum'n'space, jazz funk, rap, space funk, instrumentals, gospel influences.
diverse and leftfield, downtempo, uptempo and funky. pushing back the
boundaries live in sweaty funk joints, ripping it up at festivals across
europe, and then grafting hard in underground studios from cardiff right
up to newcastle, unified with a nod and a wink to the mothership! if you
wanna know what's going on in the funky underground then look no further.......
contains some real trainspotting gems for the passionate music collector.....most
of this selection have played at Glastonbury Festival, UK.
The Wire: "a manifesto for working dance units who've twigged the
sarcastic "launch the rocket" melodrama required for on stage
funk...in this zone the dance imperative feels liberating rather than
restrictive...the spirit of 'top that' invention which convulsed bigband
jazz in the late 1920s.....these groups have done their homework and now
want to knock you sideways with their discoveries".
London Student: "fame being a dodgy barometer of quality this isn't
necessarily a bad thing... discovering (this) funky bunch is fantastic..."
City Lights: "Pure Genius! 17 tracks of funk and attitude. I have
fallen in love with this album already. Beautiful grooves to spend your
winter nights with. Go out and buy".
Record Collector: "Quality....Yorkshire independent Chocolate Fireguard,
seem to be carving a sweet little niche for themselves"
Cool and Strange Music: "downright amazing".
