The Lack is back with the jazz-funkiest of cuts and I have to say I’m feeling the re-rubs a bit more as Funkshone’s Mike Bandoni adds some Hammond flourishes and an almost P-Funky bass to the Blue Note-iness of the Special Baby original cut while DJ Flevans gets his disco on with the late-bar jazziness of Flip Beautiful Here. Even so, it’s still all a bit too jazzbo for me. Then again, I’m not a jazzbo.
(PRESS RELEASE) As a multi instrumentalist, in-demand producer and re-mixer, a DJ with his finger on the cutting edge of contemporary sounds, and an ear tastefully cocked to the hippest soul, jazz and funk music from the 60’s and 70’s,
Adam Gibbons, the talented young man at the centre of the Lack Of Afro phenomenon, has already established an unrivalled reputation as one of the most crucial names at work in funk and dance music today.
This brand new 4 track single features 2 brand new and 100% exclusive remixes from DJ Flevans (Tru Thoughts) and Mike Bandoni from Funkshonewho rework ‘Special Baby’ and ‘Beautiful Here’ both in their own inimitable style.
Hang on? Lack Of Afro, Flevans and Funkshone on one special, beautiful new 12 inch? Yes, it’s true and now it can be yours!
(Out 26 April on Freestyle)
