DROP MUSIC – House Bound EP reviewed on 5chicago.com
Good luck picking a winner amongst all of the winners in this nine track powerhouse EP from Drop Music. They’ve aimed to combine well established names together with some up and comers and the result is funk, funk and more funk.
I’ve heard a lot of folks open mixes with the Inland Knights track “Do It Again” but I personally like dropping it anywhere other than that. It’s because you don’t know what to expect coming out of the very first breakdown and to me it’s a nice pleasant surprise once the bassline kicks in.
The Sound Diggers have channeled James Brown and claimed possession of the funkiest track of the bunch with “Dynamic”. Close behind is “Turn Me On” by Robert Boogert, a 22 year old from the Netherlands who’s turning the heads of Sonny Fodera and Wally Calliero among others. The drum work on this one is so sick. Kinky Movement’s “De JA Vu” is super duper funky but also kind of has an eighties type of vibe to it.
Freaky Behavoiur’s “Temptation” is primarily funky but it’s also got plenty of sexy in it too thanks to a nice saxaphone riff and a sample talkin’ about booty. I think it’s saying “and that’s a stanky booty” which would be hilarious but I really can’t tell.
Bringing forth the party rockin’ electro vibes are Asad Rizvi, Larry Fives, and Giom. Asad’s Boom utilizes the vocals of R&B singer Mario, which I love. Larry Five’s sampled Missy Elliot on “Make a Move” and this one has already gotten multiple spins from me. Giom does what he does best, no surprises really so yeah you can buy this one blind.
Last but not least there’s Phil Weeks with Jingle Bells, I mean uhh, “Love You More”. No, seriously, there’s jingle bells throughout the whole song. This track just oozes out of the speakers and in a good way. My sick sense of humor makes me want to see some poor little raver child freaking out on a bad acid trip and this being the song that sends them over the edge. It just has that semi-creepy feel to it but it still rocks!
So yeah this EP has been on the market for a couple of weeks, but just in case you somehow missed all the stellar names on it, now you know. And knowing is half the battle. The other half is slanging multiple tracks off this EP on unsuspecting dancefloors. Then it’s game over.
