Review: Hanover turntablist-turned-producer Mr Confuse has been serving up heavyweight slabs of funk-fuelled dancefloor goodness for the best part of two decades. He's delivered some particularly heated workouts of late, and this double A-side affair is another weighty, party-hearty must-have. Lead cut "Spinning Around" is especially potent, with the German producer layering clipped guitars, heavy Hammond organ stabs, punchy horns and weighty bass guitar atop a floor-shaking breakbeat. "Against All Odds" meanwhile is a more gnarled and - whisper it quietly - riotous slab of funk breaks peppered with buzzing alto sax lines and funk-rock guitar licks. It also boasts a killer bass breakdown, which is no bad thing.
Review: Last time out, hard-working Hanover producer Mr Confuse delivered some suitably sweaty, sample-heavy thrills built around horns, Moog stabs and the kind of infectious grooves that sit somewhere in between disco, funk and Afrobeat ('Spinning Around'). He changes tack a little on this fiery and funky follow-up, getting soulful, big-voiced singer Inna Yvsotska to belt out some life-affirming vocals above a crunchy funk groove and some seriously heavy horn lines. The quality of Confuse's backing track is confirmed by the flipside instrumental version, which allows further opportunities to admire the solid-but-loose-limbed drum-breaks, toasty bass, and razor-sharp horns. A guaranteed floor-filler.
