THE ENTICEMENTS: It Ain’t Cheatin If You Mean It (2013)

[RATING: 5] Josh Preston is musician, producer, co-owner of Me & The Machine Records and The Enticements is his project. They have delivered (as far as I can make out) precisely one single to date – It Ain’t Cheatin If You Mean It. While that’s a sentiment liable to go down like a lead balloon with most partners in long-term sexual relationships, it’s a song liable to go down like a nympho pornstar with everyone. The phrase ‘sweet Jackson 5-style Motown-funk bomb’ was made for songs like this – fatback drums, ‘pick-pick-pick’ funk guitar, falsetto vocal and a timelessly cheeky hook. Sometimes people get things so right. Is the end of March too early to call funk single of the year?

  1. Rock that Funk my man and bring it home. My cousin is all that and then some in the studio believe it. And to see/her him live is just an added treat thumbs up for funk record of the decade in my opinion.
