Some questions demand an answer – what are you going to do for example if DC crew Fort Knox Five come knocking and posit the idea of your remixing their Mustafa Akbar-featuring slab of disco Whatcha Gonna Do? The answer, if you’re Father Funk, is to apply filters and passes over an extended intro, insinuate a fair amount of wobble into the mix and get grinding after the drop. If you’re The Funk Hunters on the other hand, you jack up the four-to-the-floor stomp aspect, apply a drop and end up with something in the realms of ghetto boogie. Either way, it’s a fairly barnstorming final release of the year for FK Recordings.
