Jason Wolfe – Basement Funk EP
So: retro peaktime screamers ahoy! It's Time is big n' brassy filter disco in the 1995 Hustler's Convention/Kadoc/etc vein, while Move On drops what sounds like a cheeky bite from Once In A Lifetime before moving into a very passable impression of a 90s house remix of First Choice. But the pick for me is Basement Funk itself, a no less big but slightly less brash disco-houser that makes sterling use of the B Beat Girls "all right" vocal sample made famous by Size 9's I'm Ready, among others.
Warning: Playing the Outcross record below will make you look dead cool n' hip n' that. Playing this record won't. But it will make people dance, and speaking as a veteran of the handbag and nu-NRG era myself, I rather like it. So there.
Out: This week
