FAB SAMPERI: Listen Up – 2011

Rating: ★★★★★
Did you know that ‘Fab Samperi’ is actually Italian for ‘dope groove’? It doesn’t really matter too much as you would have instinctively grasped this fact upon hearing the title track on this release. More or less a cover of Marvin Gaye’s Can I Get A Witness it operates via a funky breakbeat so fast it breaches the drum n bass barrier and yet retains a huge retro vibe courtesy of sixties keyboard sounds, horns and the classic soul vocals from Jonnathan Molina.
