AD 021 | Funkalicious James | The Take Off EP by Airdrop Records published on 2012/06/21 12:50:34 +0000 Artist: Funkalicious James Title: The Take Off EP Label: Airdrop Records Format: 12" / Digital Cat No: AD 021 12" Release: 25th June 2011 A1. Call On Groove (Original Mix) A2. Broken Hips (Original Mix) B1. Call On (John Spring Remix) B2. Broken Hips (Douze Remix) Funkalicious James is one half of disco-house super-duo Childhood '87, along with his old pal Le Loup. Their "Caught Up" edit on Airdrop's Aux-Rec imprint back in January 2010 got some mouths talking and feet sliding. Funkalicious James is now back with his debut solo EP and Airdrop is really glad to bring it to you on vinyl today. The Parisian born producer prepared two explosive cuts for his A-side, starting things mellow with "Call On Groove" and speeding it up a notch on "Broken Hips". On the flip, Douze -- another young Parisian producer who appeared on the last Hold Youth record by Seuil and Le Loup -- brings back a certain touch of french filtering, in the classiest manner. Finally, it didn't take us much time to figure out who would be the most appropriate Airdrop trooper to round this record off… John Spring signs the deal, with a feverish version.
