Fuck Christmas 2014! Let’s party like it doesn’t need to involve ripoff shit in the shops, crap work parties and a bunch of tax-avoiding millionaires reworking a patronising ‘charity’ song about famine. Enter the Tru Funk label with some good time flavour on Tasty Beats Vol. 5. Green Jesus, Warson, Funkosol Beats, Jayl Funk and DJ Kid Stretch are all on hand to provide conspicuously un-seasonal booty mash-up sustenance. It’s Funkosol Beats’ rework of that evergreen Larry Graham bassline on Be Myself and especially Warson’s saucy and inspired p-funky sounding mash of Trick Daddy, Trina and Tom Jones on Back To The Party that – er – really takes it back to the (non-Christmas) party.
