QSO continues to rip up, remix, and reinvent. Quantic is the original funk-soul brother and Pushin' On certainly doesn't fail to continue on from where Stampede had left off. A fine blend of echoey, bouncing drumbeats with fat basslines and a great horn accompaniment to get your money's worth from your soundsystem.
You'll find yourself cutting a mighty fine slice of well-waited music cake. How dare I go on without mention to the soul diva that is Alice Russell? Partnered once more with QSO, AR certainly has found a mutual artistic arrangement which is perhaps, dare-I-say, a progression from Bah Samba.
Pushin' On is a great selection of fine funk soul cuts which will definitely bring a smile to your face on your first listen and will soon be heard in all manner of swanky bars and clubs all around town. Pick up a copy if you loved Stampede and turn up the volume and bass like you did before - I know you will not be disappointed.
As a lover of early 70's funk and soul, I always approach anything from later with extreme caution, too often I have been disappointed with over produced imitations of the real thing.
Well not here. Approached with an open mind, this will surely appeal to anyone who loves Funk and Soul from the 70's - as Mr Qauntic surely does.
If you liked the the funkier end of the Acid Jazz, as in Brand New Heavies early stuff, then try this - you won't be disappointed
