    [review] The Bamboos – On the Sly 12" (TRU211)

    Posted on December 19th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Although I thoroughly love the deep funk & soul grooves by the Bamboos, I feel that in these songs, the sparkle is missing. Sure, Kylie Auldist has the soul and she pours it all out like she should in ‘On the Sly’. And yes, Lyrics Born provides floor filling shouty lyrics on ‘Turn it Up’ [...]

    [review] The Bamboos – Turn It Up (feat. Lyrics Born) [TRUDD012]

    Posted on October 9th, 2009 by zephirnl

    “Turn It Up” featuring Lyrics Born – Digital single by The Bamboos. First thoughts when reading the press release: Party! Then, upon hearing it the first time: Party! But upon repeated listening, Hysterics Born’s voice starts to get a tad annoying, as he is singing at the top of his, no, scratch that. He [...]

    Posted on September 27th, 2009 by zephirnl

    I already mentioned them reminding me of ‘Gorillas in the mist’ in this tweet (in response to this tweet, in turn a response to this one). Now that the day has come to actually write something, let’s start from this comparison. Like gorrillas in the mist, Laura Vane & the Vipertones will hit you hard [...]

    [review] BadboE – Break the Funk (ad011cd)

    Posted on September 16th, 2009 by zephirnl

    It might seem simple to review this first BadboE full album release. I mean, it’s just a bunch of samples, rehashed and reworked with a funky breakbeat so it works better on the dance floor, right?
    Wrong.
    Yes, this album is full of samples. Yes, it is full of funky breakbeats. And hell yes, it will work [...]
