A nice slice of instrumental Eastern funk for you here on Sababa 5’s new single Eilat 22. This follows (and was recorded during the same session as) previous single Funk #1 b/w Funk #2 and very much maintains the quality pitting hypnotic bass and crunchy drum-breaks against crazy swirling keyboard solos. Turns out the single is named after the band’s studio on the borders of Tel Aviv and Jaffa and finds them co-opting theHoodna Orchestra’s brass section. Well – it’d be rude not to right? On the flip it’s all about Elifelet 23 a mellower effort but nonetheless dope for that.
(Out 2 June on Batov Records)
