CIF 03 Pecoe - Funk Nuggets EP
We feel its time drop a slab of serious Funk on the people. Not any kind of Funk. Funk Nuggets. These nuggets have nothing to do with a basketball team, a popular sugary cereal, or an unlucky parcel in one’s pants. These are delicious, spanking, hot nuggets sieved from river head nod deep in the forest of Funk, situated in Perth Australia….
Legend has it a man named “Pecoe” works tirelessly funk prospecting for new and improved edits of classic grooves. He carefully re-rubs funk particles to create current party smashers. At the end of each day he carries these majestic gems on his back, head’s home, uploads them to Ableton where he creates what one can only describe as “Dance floor magic.”
We encountered Pecoe on one of our many expeditions to the deep forest of Funk whilst gathering content for our blog. There we witnessed a glow as he showered in a water fall of Soul, Jazz, Rhythm and Blues. Once fully clothed he welcomed us into his home where we began our journey listening to his never-ending library of bangers.
Following a solid presence on our blog we are proud to unleash what we hope will be one of many EP’s from this mystical chap. His work rate, digging knowledge and ear for dope breaks is second to none. Join us below as we follow Pecoe with his Hammer and hand lens on a day’s funk prospecting.
First he shines off his party pan and washes free the particles to form the Title track “Funk Nuggets“ the more electric feeling vibe on the EP which is reminiscent of an 80’s groove spiced up with current elements. The next deposit “Taste Of Soul” is lodged deeper in classic vibes and required Pecoe’s funk drill. A solid party riddim with James Brown samples, horns and drums guaranteed to fill a dance floor. Whilst deep near the earth’s core he burrows beneath some soul soil to uncover “Get in The Groove” Another vintage sounding head nodder with extreme party potential. Last but certainly not least, Pecoe clambers out of the dutty hole of goodness to scoop the final Nugget into his satchel “Everybody Get Down” this is the perfect way to finish this consistent medley of aggressive grooves sourced from a funky day’s prospecting.
With that, grab your floppy brown hat, claw hammer and funk pan. Dust of your shell toe’s Papa Pecoe has sourced some extreme Funk Nuggets!
