So much boom in dis box.
Editorial is a label which puts out some of the best disco & funk edits around right now. Label stalwarts Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee serve up sweet, sharp and funky edits to ‘make you move.’ Onto number 35 of the label’s monthly mix series, the quality just keeps growing, this EP knocking down edits left right and centre.
The first track on the EP, ‘Boogie Flight’ is wonderfully slow moving with one of the most delicious bass lines of the year thus far, reminiscent of early MJ, a lesson in sophistication taught by masters of the dancefloor whereas 1979 anthem from The Gap Band ‘Oops Upside Your Head’ is mixed into a light-hearted anthemic journey of funk designed to make those feet move.
‘Let’s Go!’ is a perfect song to get people moving and grooving, with swirling, looped & addictive piano chords, four-to-the-floor beat and shouty hook; ‘woah/let’s go’. A prime example of 80s style dramatic build-ups and floor-treading rhythm. Penultimate track ‘Phunkosphere’ is exactly what it says ‘welcome to the land of (ph)funk.’ The land of funk has flutes, tight drums, bongos and men who have chocolate-coated voices. ‘Crusin” is the most house-orientated track with the main focus on the bass, although the song is described as ‘car ride jazz’ it probably wouldn’t be very safe to drive with this playing for fear of bassing out whilst driving…
