Samosa Records continues it’s unstoppable runaway juggernaut of a year with the double EP ‘Funk Purpose Vol. 2’. Featuring two slabs of HQ black wax with 4 tracks on each 12” (Vol. 2/1 & Vol 2/2) which will come out 2 weeks apart.
Pulling out all the stops they have brought together a who’s who of the cream of the disco editor roll of honour.
Step up (in alphabetical order) Al Kent, Hotmood, Moodena & Sartorial, Raw Slavs on this 12”.
Kicking things off in dramatic fashion on Part 1 is Million Dollar Disco boss ‘Al Kent’ with a glorious slice of string laden vocal heaven in ‘Where’. Cue classic brass stabs, sultry strings, filters in all the right places and some nifty drum rolls. These all set he scene perfectly for a power house of a female vocal. Opening tracks rarely kick things off with such class.
Following A1 is Russian outfit ‘Raw Slavs’ who jump straight into action with a groove fuelled soulful jam ‘Born in R’. Like the first track it’s powered by a wonderful string section. This one is a summer jam through and through. Expect to hear it across all the best summer’s boat parties.
Also on a serious hot streak this year Tropical Disco Records ‘Moodena & Sartorial’ are first up on the flip side with the joyful smile inducing ‘Got The Feeling’. Keys, stings, soulful vocals they are all here. A dance-floor certainty!
Closing out Part 1 is Mexican producer and Discoweey head honcho ‘Hotmood’ who steps into Jazzier territory with ‘700 Copies’. Ace keys, sweeping brass, brilliant drums. Deep but still party, a mercilessly cool track.
