Less a question than a statement, Ya Need A Funky Band is some supercharged latin-funk based breaks from Leipzig label Frequento Sunsetsoul. In reality more a single with three remixes than a true EP – Basement Freaks’ original version steals the crown. In a nutshell, salsa percussion gets all jiggy with a rhythm guitar and bass in a threesome that continually threatens to build to a climax but manages to hold itself back from the brink with Sting-like self-control. While this is going on, Greek funk-daddy Quasamodo mumbles stuff vacillating between exhortations to dance and explaining how you’re going to feel if you do – which apparently amounts to feeling like “You’ve just been fucked by a funky band.” Well…quite. Dancefloor gold.
Released February on Frequento Sunsetsoul
