"Ah yeah, we're back in business, baby" - as the opening track says! It has been longer than I'd have liked but I'm back with another mixtape in my ongoing mission to mix up new and old music that I love. This one's very much a game of two halves with the early hip hop/funk of the new Lack of Afro track moving quickly into 4/4 territory with some disco-y and then house-y bits that came out towards the end of 2017. There's a neat sidestep into some broken beat - there seems to be some new bruk emerging at last with EVM128 and the maestro Kaidi Tatham leading the way, with a nod back to the genre's heyday with the Jazzanova remix of MAW. Then it's very much into funky territory with some tracks representing early girl power, long before the Spice Girls (including the amazing all-female rock/funk outfit Birtha), before hitting some jazzy notes with Cal Trader and Grady Tate. I had to finish off with Zero DB in Frank de Jo Jo mode. I'm not even sorry.
