Under The Munka Moon II
This second collection of remixes, collaborations and alternate takes serves as a testament, not only to the breadth of Alice Russell’s appeal, but also to her versatility as an artist.
From soul to jazz, folk to funk, downbeat to broken beat, hip hop to reggae and even soaking up a little drum & bass energy for good measure, Alice switches genres with natural grace and style, aided and abetted by her musical co-conspirators.
Highlights include a certified broken beat classic from Bugz In The Attic; Boub’s head-nodding, hip-swinging 80s inspired reggae remix of ‘Hurry On Now’; an infectious, jazzy drum & bass roller courtesy of Nu:Tone; DJ Vadim’s acclaimed hip hop re-rub of ‘A Fly In The Hand’ and laid-back, soulful gems courtesy of Bonobo and Wyndham Earl.
Nostalgia 77’s incendiary cover of ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes makes a welcome appearance alongside collaborations with Unforscene, Natural Self and Alice’s longstanding partner in crime, TM Juke.
The album is also peppered with exclusive stripped-down live tracks, which breathe new life into Alice’s own back catalogue.
