We say goodbye to August with a nicely chilled DJ mix from everyone’s favourite punctuated punk-funk outfit, !!!, or Chk Chk Chk as they’re also known. However you choose to pronounce the New York band’s name, one thing is clear – they’ve nailed the alternative, modern funk groove, and then some.
In contrast to some of their more upfront material, the group’s exclusive Clash mix is a laid-back affair, or as !!! vocalist Nic Offer astutely sums up, “It’s a mellow mix to do mellow things to.” Mellow indeed, but no less full of grooves, melodies and character than any !!! record.
The mix explores funky Latin jazz from Jorge Ben, genteel dreamy retro rock from The Troggs and classic soul from Curtis Mayfield, as well as tracks from former Soft Machine drummer and current muso experimentalist Robert Wyatt, and the immortal Roxy Music.
