Hailing from Sydney, Australia: DJ, producer and beat maker Omegaman has laid down an infectious groove with his new ass wigglin? track "Skankin' Riddim". Proudly presented by Super Hi-Fi Recordings, it's a cheeky salute to old skool Ska with a straight up breakbeat, dubby bassline, majestic horns courtesy of Scotty Sax, and vocal samples from reggae legend Horseman. The release also features an all-star lineup of remix artists.
The vinyl release will include Omegaman, Thomas Blondet, Stickybuds, and Busta. The digital release adds two more remixes to the stellar roster courtesy of All Good Funk Alliance and Fretless. Styles range from straight up ska with big beats, lounge core head-nodders, to breakbeat stompers with some seriously womping bass action - this release covers all bases with a nice variation of genres.
The All Good Funk Alliance deliver the goods once again. This EP starts off with "Sock It to Ya!", a grooving, breakbeat jam supported by a fat, squelchy bassline with brass stabs and funky synth treatments. Kraak & Smaak turn up the heat with their peak-hour remix, adding there Dutch funk production with their finely crafted build-ups. On the flipside, AGFA serves up "Man with a Jam Plan" featuring the talented vocal styling of Australia's Rubber Johnson. Equal parts electro boogie, boom bap, and funky breaks, this global party track has something for everyone and will bring a smile to everyone on the dancefloor. For the remix, AGFA recruited their DC funk brethren, the Fort Knox Five, to add their signature funky sound to "Man With a Jam Plan"
Neighbour has blessed us with a solid EP of boogie-breaks and house featuring his signature wonky bass-line style and some dope vocalists. "Drunk on the Funk" is the title song of this EP and it's pure dance-floor magic. It's one of those tunes that rock every time it's played regardless of the venue and MC Think Tank drops some simple lines over the roller-disco type groove. It's those funky ass keyboards and the poppin' bass that makes this song rock with some serious stamina. On the Flip we give you "Back and Forth", an altogether deeper affair but Neighbour injects some new style type rap vocals over some smooth keys and soul vocal chants that keep the whole thing chugging along. When the Virus type bass comes in at the three minute mark you know you're in for an interesting ride. For the final track we drop "Kolour Jam", a jazzy house type track that is jackin' while still holding some depth. In just 3 tracks you get a little something for every type of situation, like an insurance plan on vinyl.
All Good Funk Alliance deliver once again with a latin breaks influenced release on Super Hi-Fi.
The title track, "Avance!", is a raucous, floorfiller of funky latin breaks and killer vocals from Aussie singers Merenia and Vincent. Ursula 1000 delivers a top notch breakbeat remix that's guaranteed not to disappoint your ears with a growling bassline and massive breakdown.
On the flip, "Respect Thy Neighbour" lays down a chunky midtempo groove with a fat rolling acid bassline. Rounding out the EP is the swaggering, mature downtempo joint "Sha Sha".
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Nick Fonkynson joins the Super Hi-Fi family with his debut EP. Monsieur Fonkynson definitely knows a thing or two about getting down and shows us how from his EP's first track, So Damn Fresh-a slammin' funky mid-tempo joint that will have any dance floor bouncing and heads nodding. Rock Da Spot is for more serious ass-wigglin' and doesn't disappont with a hard-grooving bass line, stone-cold synths, and even some funky flute action. On the flip, Wha Da Funk cranks the party up a notch with its choice samples, smooth horns, killer bass line and bangin' keys. Finally "Fetia Avae" cools the EP down showcasing Monsier Fonkynson's classy, deep house side. Be on the look out for more quality tunes from this funky Canadian.
Joining the Super Hi-Fi roster for our third release is Australia's best kept secret, the one-man funk hurricane, Omegaman (aka Marc Scully). Marc has been involved in the music industry for over 25 years and has a world of musical knowledge from his travels around the globe as a touring musician. He started out as a bass player, holding it down with such Australian groups as the MX Warheads, The Love Rodeo, The Deadly Hume, Nick Barker & the Reptiles, and RATCAT--all before moving into DJing, production, programming, and remixing.
"Disco Love" is a straight-forward, disco breaks floorfiller. Funky breakbeat? Check. A serious, no nonsense, ass-wiggling bassline? Double check. Some groovy, shufflin' keys for good measure? Yep. This is the sound of top-of-the-night disco love. England's Featurecast provides a fresh remix on a slightly chiller tip.
"Super Hi-Fi Funk" is a swanky soul breaks groove-monster that struts, swaggers, and stomps along led by brassy trumpet stabs and a funky electro disco bassline. Also included is a hypnotic, four to the floor remix from B-Team.
