The Impellers - Do What I Wanna Do (Légère Recordings)

I've recently been hooked up with Légère Recordings out of Hamburg, purveyors of some serious sexy nu funk (think big Craig Charles-eque fodder) and this latest release has cemented them as one of my favourite new labels.

The Impellers are a 10-strong heavy soul and funk band who released their first album on another SLL label fave - Freestyle - in 2009. The guys are already famed for their multitude of styles and influences, both across their original material and covers - a perfect blend of deep funk, latin and afrobeats for the more upbeat floors.

Their latest release is the typically wicked 'Do What I Wanna Do' (as featured on this week's Podcast), with the guys again putting the 'fun' into funk with massive piano and guitar riffs meeting crazy afro adlibs and a peak-time singalong vocal. The package comes with an equally bonkers video from a band who clearly know how to bring the party - check the vid above.
