Funk Butcher vs. Loleatta Holloway "Sinister Boogie/Love Sensation"
Zed Bias, star of a recent XLR8R podcast, is a man who operates under many monikers, including Maddslinky and Funk Bias. The latter is actually a collaboration with production partner Funk Butcher, a Rinse FM host and purveyor of house and broken beat sounds. It's been confirmed that the two have a release forthcoming on Loefah's Swamp 81, and Zed got us hip to some of their tracks on his podcast. But Funk Butcher also has his own story to tell, most currently with this re-interpretation of late-'80s Chicago disco/house singer Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation." Riding Butcher's own "Sinister Boogie," Holloway sounds both classic and of-the-moment over Butcher's warm, chopped, garage-style organs and plush high-hats. There's still no word on the date of Swamp 81's Funk Bias release, but we do know their track "Last Forever" has made the cut. Listen back to the Zed Bias podcast for a preview of that, and download Funk Butcher's "Sinister Boogie/Love Sensation" right here. (via FACT)
