GMF feat. AKIL THE MC: Remixed! (2012)

“Do whatever feels good to you. It’s cool/ For you to do whatever you want to just do,” raps former Jurassic 5 member Akil The MC on the original Grand Mother’s Funck version of Do (video below) – with admirable laissez-faire as his and the band’s work is taken off by Badboe and various nu-funky friends. Perhaps surprisingly, the end result isn’t a six-track ‘loud-up the drums, wobble the bass until your speakers blow free-for-all.’ That’s not to say that DJ Farside doesn’t do precisely this for Party All Night or that Breakbeat Junkie hasn’t made a heavy breaks effort with the same track but elsewhere things are a bit more mellow. Well, I say mellow – Zamali and Dj Odilon are on a b-boy breaks tip with Let The World Know but Kalumenos’ rework of Your Thang gets G-Funky, while Mr Confuse’s hip-hop mix of Do has a stoner West Coast feel for all those missing J5. It’s all about Badboe’s party breaks remix of Do for the surest feelgood dancefloor filler.

  1. thanks for the great review!
    although the video link is for the original of GMF’s track “Do”, not the remix-EP.
    here’s the right one:

    I was putting the original video up there to give you props for the original version while giving everyone else the heads up about the remixes. I mentioned in the first sentence that it’s the video to the original rather than the remix. Mind you if it’s not clear to you, it’s probably confused others too – so thanks for the new link!
