Funkstorung has always been a band that I have known about, owned some of their music but have never jumped out and grabbed me like some others. They released through Compost and had their logo and some great covers from The Designers Republic. When I got this tune tonight I didn't recognize the name at all and so it was only after some looking around did I realise that Michael Fakesch was one half of Funkstorung that had disbanded in 2006.
This tune starts off with a sweet beat and is then not so subtly joined by a menacing bass tease that eases into a funky bassline. Vocals are provided by Taprikk Sweezee across this tune, and on the album, while the four four stomps along while the sweet acid/303 that was hinted at from the very start begins to slowly infiltrate and move to the fore after an amazing breakdown at around 4 mins.
Cracking tune all round.
This is the Munk remix off the Soda EP released on !K7
