Bumper - NY Nights by Homebreakin Records published on 2013/04/02 10:59:43 +0000 OUT NOW! BUMPER – SEXY MOVES EP HBR020 Homebreakin’ Records turns the funk dial to eleven with this latest release from the Netherlands-based duo of Geoffrey T and Mr Pauli, better known to super-freaks around the globe as Bumper. With previous releases on 20/20 Vision, Wireblock, and MDEX Recordings, Bumper has already been planting their fresh brand of snazzy electro-funk into the ears and dance floors of lucky disco citizens. With their Homebreakin’ debut the pair bust forth with a pair of potent tunes, “Sexy Moves” and “NY Nights.” The vocoder gets switched on, the guitars get funkin’, and the Linn Drum gets heated up for “Sexy Moves” which slinks and shakes like a Princely house-quake. In “NY Nights” hands get clapping to some b-boy pressure as wah-wah guitar scratches, pitch bent synth leads, and a growling bass co-exist in funky harmony. In addition, “Sexy Moves” gets tweaked and freaked in a couple of galactic remixes, with the first coming from Homebreakin’s in-house maestro Neighbour. A slightly smoother version results from Neighbour’s magic touch, with Italo-style synth runs, atmospheric embellishments, and the vocoder melody solidly leading the groove. A housier treatment of “Sexy Moves” finds its way onto the single from rising Australian beat-monger Kreap who disco-izes the track with wild abandon. A popping bass line, a throbbing rhythm, and squelchy sounds galore help keep Kreap’s version near the top of the set list. Together these four tracks make things so hot they’re nearly flammable. Hat tip to Homebreakin’ Records for another killer package.
