‘Brother’, a contagious little club rocker complete with brassy stabs kicks off this two track single in style, while B-side ‘Lamplight’ explores a more downbeat, organic terrain.
Fellow funkateer Natural Self guests on cuts and scratches, laying down some expert chops over Ben’s brooding horns and subtle piano lines.
‘Brother’ is one of those funky 7”s that sounds like a long-lost dusty rare groove from the 70s at first, but repeated listens reveal a stronger, more dubby edge than anything made that long ago.
“Dirty, raw dance music for dark, sweaty basements”
“Organic, brooding thoughtful stuff”
Straight No Chaser
“Two classy tunes to rock any discerning dancefloor”
“This has been rocking my world!”
Rob Da Bank, Radio One
