Allied Force Summer Madness
- Words: Derek Grey
- Label: Just Noyze
MC GQ's label comes with a solid two-song effort, and it‘s the third release for the imprint from jazz-leaning Allied Force. The cover of Kool & The Gang's silky "Summer Madness" is reverent without diluting the jungle format. B-side "Highly Strung" is my choice track; it's built with strummed jazz guitar, filtered vocals and, as the title suggests, a surging string section. EF makes it sound effortless.
