From the incessant opening of the title track, the listener knows they are in for a fun ride with fast funk, horns and a playful rhythm that is both endearing and keeps the feet moving at a hundred miles per hour. With Thaliah adding her vocal talent, it further adds weight to the uplifting soulful beats. The man behind the music, Dimitri Nassios, has been a rising star with ridiculous talent for some time now and is well known in the funk world having released songs on the reputable Freestyle Records as Q Orchestra, as well as with Basement Freaks as Smokey Bandits. Whatever name he goes by, what is guaranteed is funk of the highest quality and usually numerous cameo casts from singers. ‘Change Is Strange’ is massive and the groove impeccably relentless with a charming old school pace to it that many have struggled to match in recent years. ‘Son of Shaft’ swaggers along with a head down confidence and is a masterpiece in pure funk beats. ‘Funkenstein’ completes the four-track EP with gusto and proves that this one man master is at the top of his game and can barely be touched by any of his peers. Thrillingly funky stuff!
