FREETHINKER FUNK ESSENCE: Underground EP (2016)

Underground EP Freethinker Funk EssenceMustbeat signing Freethinker Funk Essence gets with the more organic sound for his new Underground EP by turns adding psychedelic, blaxploitation and afrobeat influences to his breaks. Too Drunk To Funk and Hot Sole Funk both employ wigged-out FX over hypnotic grooves – the latter adding in some 90s-style female soul vox – while closer Funky Bitch employs some scorching organ plus afro percussion. This one’s all about opener The Revenge Of The Pusher though – a multi-layered composition that references all manner of blaxploitation without sounding overtly retro.
(Out 24 March Juno exclusive and 7 April 2016 elsewhere on Mustbeat Records)
