DAN WILDE: Funk Break Format – 2011

It’s always tricky when writing about funky breakbeat music not to overuse the words ‘funk’ and ‘break’ so Mr Wilde gets the gasface for the extra challenge presented by the title of this EP. Having said that, it’s difficult to escape the fact that what he provides here is a melting pot of funk and breaks staples and hip-hop vocals mashed-up and re-edited to within an inch of their lives. Far from sounding tired, this all sounds as evergreen as – er – ever, in a way that will have everyone (and there’s no way to avoid saying this) breaking the funk until the break of dawn in funkland – which will be wherever you are when you hear it. Gasface revoked! Preview the dopeness of Cake Cut (first track off EP) in full below and preview the whole EP on the Juno player below that and official press guff below that:
