Rocafort Records is really coming in strong with their latest batch of releases and the next one is a scorcher! Making their label debut, Geneva based L’Eclair are set to drop a spicy double-sider creating the perfect blend of old-school funk, afro-beat, 70s soundtrack fusion with a nice touch of B-Boy flavor in the middle.
”Funky Splash” is an original composition, understated in its groove but with the punch and crunch falling in all the right places, hence can be enjoyed either stewing in the background or as a dancefloor filler. The wah-wah and off-the-wall synths are both used to great rhythmic effect. On the flip side, ”O Caminho do Bem” covers the Brazilian musical heavyweight Tim Maia. Always hard to revisit a classic, but L’Eclair’s tight musicianship, perfect pacing and futuristic twist all add an extra layer of groove onto the mellow funk of the original.
Definitely something to add to your crates and work into the mix of your nights to take it up a notch.
