Grand Torino 76 The Funk
- Words: Barry Gee
- Label: Grab
Brazilian carnival vibes rule the ultra-percussive and sexually provocative "Kinky Girl," a track that should see some clothing fly off on the dancefloor. Exactly what I would expect from a pair of French house producers: Mr. Fuzz and Julien Leroux. But the key tune here is "Soulmachine," where funky guitars and scat-jazz vocals dip in out of sweet Rhodes keys and spacey breakdowns. A summer single to warm up winter.
