Instalments of the Golden Rules label’s forthcoming all-original funk/ soul sampler The Originals Vol. 2 keep rolling in thick and fast and the next one is afro-funk beast Slight Whining (Fast) from Finland’s The Blassics. Here’s a crew who don’t mess around, kicking this instrumental off immediately with a rolling drum break and lightly wah-wah’d guitar soon joined by that distinctive afro combo of tuba and baritone sax. And I don’t think there’ll be any whining about that. Is it ‘fast’ or even ‘(Fast)’ though? Well 109 bpm puts it in a midtempo space though I don’t expect there’ll be any whining about that either nor the fact that this bracketed word in the title probably refers to the fact that there is a more stoned version of Sight Whining kicking about somewhere too.
