Nu Soul Review : Starship Connection / K-Maxx - A Taste Of Tempo Dreams Vol. 2 (Bastard Jazz)

The Vibe

Bastard Jazz have unleashed yet another modern classic this week, a dirty electro boogie package from San Fran's B.Bravo and Teeko as Starship Connection. And the second track - featuring vocals from K-Maxx - are as 80s RnB as their alter ego suggests.

Both tracks offer-up a slice of timeless lo-fi, key driven, guitar led electronic funk with throbbing bass rhythms. As a teaser for the full length 'Tempo Dreams' compilation, you'd have to be made of stone not to be excited by the prospect of the EP.

Sounds like

Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz meets Tokyo Dawn. Now there's an idea...

Serving suggestion

One for the lovers. Best enjoyed at the back of the room, cosying up with the most gorgeous guy or gal in the room. Hearts will melt to this. It might as well be classed an aphrodisiac.

Did you know?

B.Bravo's studio setup consists of an MPC 2000XL for drums, Arp Odyssey, Juno 60, JP 8000, DX-7, Motif rack and MicroKorg. (via this great interview in The Quietus)
