- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Blunted Funk
Is Brooklyn in the house? This new label run by borough boys Scottie B and Sneak-E Pete brings its second multi-artist EP full of funky explorations. Moody Eva's minimalist "6 Minute Man" flips a bit of the Clash's "Rock the Casbah" until it sounds like it's being played by Liquid Liquid, while The Shift's "Soulville" rolls live guitar over a breakbeat house skeleton, to middling effect. On the flip, saxophonist Mike DeVellis recalls early-'90s live acid jazz on his uptempo "Post Boogie," and Miss Bliss and Sneak-E Pete close up with their decently written "Electrofunk." Solid, though not exactly groundbreaking.
