- Strange Breaks & Mr Thing 3 Sampler: It Sure Is Funky / Özels Dance Routine by Amrad's Trinidad Cavaliers / Özel Türkas
7/10 Mike Staff review, 01 May 2014
Here's a lively little 7" taster for the forthcoming 'Strange Breaks & Mr Thing III' compilation featuring Amrad's Trinidad Cavaliers on side A and a Mr Thing edit of Ozel Turkas on the flip. Neither the sleeve nor the press release give me any background information so I'm just going to have to use my ears here.
The A side number has a cool mixture of hand drums and trap kit and steel drum melodies for a bubbling polyrhythmic shuffle with joyous group vocals and some really neat hi-hat work, it's all about the rhythms, I like it a lot and am grooving along in my chair.
Over on the other side the Ozel Turkbas have a lean drum groove with a throbbing bassline, crazy wibbly slide guitar, dinky piano and flute taking it in turns to throw in some melodic details. Both these tracks are great fun, highly recommended for those of you who hanker for exotic drum breaks.
