MAKO & MR BRISTOW: ‘Stank Soul Edits. Vol. 1 & Vol. 2’ seven inches (2015)

Resense 041 042 Mako Mr BristowIt’s another ‘no buses for ages and then three come at once’ deal as, breathing down the neck of the forthcoming Resense 040 will be Resense 041 and 042 – not one but two simultaneously released sets of funky soul edits on seven inch wax from Mako & Mr Bristow! I know! Four cuts from the golden era of funk and soul – two well-known; two obscure – re-touched subtly enough that they still sound vintage but distinctively enough that when played back to back with the originals you’ll go “Aaaahhhh. Now I see.” That’ll be Mako and Bristow’s Stank Soul Edits Vols. 1 and 2 then. One of them should probably write the PR blah for that…Players below…

(PRESS RELEASE) Stank Soul Edits Vol. 1
Stank Soul Edits Vol. 1 finds Mako & Mr Bristow delivering reverent and definitively classic dancefloor edits of two vintage cuts. King Soul-omon’s Mine gives the beat, bass and bpm a lift on an old favourite by the ‘king of soul’ while Sock It Silly boosts the beat and bass and tweaks the guitar on an obscure later number by a man more associated with rock n roll and early 60s rnb. This IS funky soul y’all!

(PRESS RELEASE) Stank Soul Edits Vol. 2
Once again, Mako & Mr Bristow deliver reverent and definitively classic dancefloor edits of two vintage cuts on Stank Soul Edits Vol. 2. The first is a rework of an album track by a southern soul legend and the second is a fresh take on an obscure sister funk cut with a very catchy hook. Break’s All Tight edits the original so the epic horns are complemented by a kick and snare you can actually hear, while Mama’s Little Breakbeat provides the massive funky drums the original always deserved but never got. It’s sho’ nuff funky soul y’all!

(Out 6 November HERE and 16 November worldwide)
