ALL GOOD FUNK ALLIANCE: Varied Funk (2015)

Varied Funk AGFANo messing around with cryptic titles for All Good Funk Alliance on new one, Varied Funk; they do what they say and they say what they bloody well do. Well kind of. Opener Funk This Jam features Trouble Funk legend Big Tony and updates the go-go sound with some rather house-y stylings while Do Work finds AGFA nodding to classic Motown soul beats and tempos – though the presence of contemporary production and Nappy Riddem’s Mustafa Akbar’s falsetto results in a surprisingly Pharrell-esque venture. Funk This Jam channels the lighter, more electronic end of 90s big beat and On-Off Boogie closes things with some pitch-bending neon n vocoders electro-boogie business. It’s varied Jim but not strictly funk as we know it…
(Out 25 May on Super Hi-Fi Recordings)
