Citizen Funk are Scherbe und his longtime friend Peter Clamat (who is also running Big Bait Records). Each year, they meet in the French region Alsace to jam along on their machines, moving back and forth between House, Hip Hop, Funk and Jazz. Every track here breathes good vibes and a laid back attitude just in time for summer.
Remembrance - wow... each part. Utterly, utterly perfect. Inspiring drums...
Strings Of Light pulls you in from the start, letting you know you're in for a great trip.
Joint 17 is another great track, smooth and funky and exploring around the edges of the groove.
Black Focus is a great opener and Yo Chavez is really nice.
Lowrider... mmm, the theme is bit retro for me, which is fitting - and brilliant playing, of course.
Favourite track: Remembrance Peter Jones
