Description

A midtempo vocal soul funk groover backed with a crazed Hammond breakbeat workout.

Side A proves that The Getup are more than your average Hammond Funk outfit! A bubbling bass line kicks the track into a killer up tempo funk groove, having you reaching for the volume knob to crank it up as the first verse bursts out.  The track takes on a whole new dimension as the chorus reveals a four-on-the-floor solid dance groove, with Jamiroqui-esque tasty chord changes, and then the horns stab us back into the next verse.  A percussive, reverberant Hammond solo takes us into a drum break that is DJ and sampler's heaven, before the tunes rounds out with a double chorus and ends on more punchy stabs……. a midtempo vocal workout showcasing the sheer musicality of the band…….funk of the highest order!

From the sublime to the mental, the B side is a straight up Hammond wig out! An uptempo instrumental chock full of stunning crunchy drum breaks, the biting and growling Hammond, chukka-wakka guitar and hip heavy bass. This is how to showcase the unique sound of a swirling Hammond organ and its way inside The Getup's comfort zone. Its hard to pull a track like this together and make it work, here its played by a supertight band at the top of their game who know exactly what they are doing. DJs watch out, this is dancefloor mayhem!
