a wonderful medley of funk, hip hop and soul
on 19 September 2003
An album not only as it says (for the late nights when you get home at 5 in the morning) but also for the summer.
The intro is almost straight out of a blaxploitation flick, and then it follows up with the funky drums and trumpets of "copenhagen claimin respect" track which sets your mood straight up into the "feeling good zone".
Tracks like "take ya time" are like powerfully romantic dance injections direct to the heart, with the funky hip hop break complemented beautfully by the trumpet ensemble sample from Shirley Basseys' cover of The Doors "light my fire".
The final track is the best cover i've heard of The Mamas and the Papas "california dreamin" if not better. Jose Felicianos' voice almost makes you cry it oozes so much romance and soul backed by his hispanic guitar and soft string section.
Buy it if you know what funky is about!
