(PRESS RELEASE) Ladies and gentleman, fetch your dancing shoes – it’s the brand-new, debut official remix from dj/ production duo Mako & The Hawk who rework I Gets My Boogie On by Texan funk crew T Bird & The Breaks on a grand scale. Evoking shades of Coldcut’s version of Eric B & Rakim’s Paid In Full and Primal Scream’s Loaded, the reflective gospel-tinged soul of the original becomes an epic slice of dancefloor gospel-funk driven by a monster old school breakbeat with a single thought in mind…making you get your boogie on. Lordy lord – break me off a piece of that cheese!
Soundcloud preview and juno player below plus bandcamp player of the band’s original version, track feedback from the likes of Craig Charles BBC6 Funk & Soul Show producer, Smoove, and Nick Recordkicks below that…
(Out 29 April on Tour Of Booty Records)
