With a deft scalpel and a dance-floor sensibility, Funk Hunk reworks these forgotten 80’s jams into a collection of serious heaters your DJ crates can’t do without. My pick of the bunch is the version of Junior’s ‘Not Tonight’ with is synth-percussion intro and gangster-lean stomp.

Denver based disco boys, Black Amex (A duo consisting of Patrick Collins and Matthew Loui) and Funk Hunk have been on my radar for a hot second. From the former’ redunkulous release on Undercover Operations (Chopshop sister label) to the latter’ dizzying, free output on his soundcloud, these lads have been takin’ me higher!

Enter their latest spilt EP on the mysterious, Handshakes label… I’m pretty sure Black Amex is at the helm of this operation as they’ve been featured on all three of the young imprints releases. Kicking things off on the a-side, “You’ve Been Replaced,” is a fantastically heavy slice of electro-boogie that sees a classic Gwen McCrae joint undergo a hypnotic and loopy reworking. Flipside, “Wake Up,” is an all original, synth jam from Funk Hunk that features sampled vox and layers of attitude.

Cop both these gems on Junodownload exclusively.
