Fantastic beats fusing with 80's production.
Anthem time!!! Latest Hyperdub signing Funkineven just set our stylus on fire with two boogie power moves for Eglo! Thus far, we've only caught a couple of dazzling glimpses of this fella, namely on the 'Kleer' 12" and a bumpin' couple of beats for Fatima, but this 12" is sure to set him out as the UKs finest answer to Dâm-Funk. With 'She's Acid' he imagines a timewarp where the early 80s boogie funk scene plugs directly into '87 acid. Maximized machine beats are subtly but painstakingly inched together for serious dancefloor impact while a FAT acid line fills in the gaps with pure luminous funk. This is Deadly! Meanwhile on the flip 'Must Move' sets another badass boogie joint, making nods to Kraftwerk, Computer Jay and Egyptian Prince. Heavyweight dance music. No sleepin!
