MISTER T: The Funk Ground (2016)

the-funk-ground-mister-tMister T gets his nu-funk on for four-tracker The Funk Ground marrying chunky drums to minimal non-percussive instrumentation. He establishes a territory that ranges from hypnotic opening earworm vocal cut The Heart Grows Fonder featuring Lucy Lune Gillespie to the clav-funk-meets-2-step-garage of Gamma Rays, the Yello-ish The Gospel Way and the JB inflected-breakbeat of the title track. This one is unquestionably all about the 90s vibe of The Heart Grows Fonder though.
