A while back I came across a tune by a guy called Kormac. It caught my ear as it were so I grabbed it. I didn't spend any time looking into the artist or label though. Had I done so I would have seen that the release was off this label, Scribble, and that the label is based in Dublin, Ireland and that the label is a part of the Bodytonic crew in Dublin and that the Bodytonic crew own a pub where they put on shows and this would be the same Bodytonic that I was telling my mates in Ireland to check out at ElectricPicnic last year (see visuals from that after the tune).
Anyways, what I am saying is that this crew has a whole lot of good going on back home in Ireland and I cannot wait to get back there to check it all out in person rather than this virtual business. Maybe even try out for a DJ slot every now and again. (Nudge, nudge Stee) ;)

"Cherry Cherry" is a killer disco influenced house tune guaranteed to rock dance-floors. "Brooklyn to LA" brings us promptly into a hip–house tune of two halves kicking off with its bouncing beats and developing into deep house rhythms. "Jesus H Clown" is a funked up collage of beats, basslines and funky licks. While "Pucci's Re-Rub" is a live brass filled cut-up funk affair."
Here's some of what others have to say about the release:
Pucci's Re-rub' is rocking my system the most but its all great stuff! Diesler (Freestyle Records)
Brooklyn to LA is da shiz! be blasting this one out Lee (Featurecast)
dirty, groovin' funk that? we love. A solid release that will be played a lot. All Good Funk Alliance
Sounding great....keep up the good work Mark Rae (Grand Central)
If you like your beats hard and your grooves smooth then check out Simbad's re-edit of Brooklyn to LA by B.D.I below. I am loving this tune-had it playing all day in between meetings and conference calls and will definitely be playing this out and about soon.
