DJ RUDD: We Can Get It On (BBP 061)(2012)

“We Can Get It On” proclaims the title of this new EP from DJ Rudd which, appropriately enough, eschews mere flirting with the name ‘funk’ to deliver an above averagely funky, well-constructed ghetto funk four-tracker. And manages to show gentlemanly restraint with the bass wobble. Taking in ghetto disco (opener Shake It Out), ghetto soul (title track), ghetto Edie Brickell & The Wiseguys (no, really) we finally end up with actual ghetto ‘funk’ – based around proper funk. In this case a thunderous rework of Sly Stone’s Underdog – which, incidentally, is the best track and worth the price of the wax all on its own. A nice little vinyl rocket for firework night, then.
(Out 5 November on BBP)
