BMD: Funk It Up (2016)

Funk It Up BMDFormer Tru:Funker BMD is back in the production seat with new single Funk It Up. In fact not so much ‘funk it up’ as ‘big beat it up’ as he goes hell-for-leather after the sound that once defined the Heavenly Social club – pounding uptempo breaks and a 90s take on the kind of noise that post-punks ESG used to make in the clubs of NYC back in the early 80s. Of course – that does bring us dangerously close to house at times. Remixer Clairvo sensibly backs off in a latin-skankin direction but though Rory Hoy also ventures some way into no-man’s land he still holds back from fully crossing the final row of barbed wire. There’s no pretence from Ane though. The man’s an unashamed house fiend.
(Out 18 March on XLNT Records)
