Stank Soul Edits Vol. 1 finds Mako & Mr Bristow delivering reverent and definitively classic dancefloor edits of two vintage cuts. King Soul-omon's „Mine“ gives the beat, bass and bpm a lift on an old favourite by the 'king of soul' while „Sock It Silly“ boosts the beat and bass and tweaks the guitar on an obscure later number by a man more associated with rock n roll and early 60s rnb. This IS funky soul y'all!
a. King Soul-Omon's Mine
b. Sock It Silly
Juno Records: The first of two big edit 45s: Titanic Bristol funk from the infrequent partnership of Monkey Boxing's Mako and serial editor Mr Bristow: "King Soul-omon's Mine" takes a cover of heavily-sampled, well-known Lee Dorsey/Allen Toussaint gem and adds a subtle contemporary swing. Flip for a full band breakdown over a pristine break as "Sock It Silly" strips down the science of every funk tune ever. Vinyl-only; this one's a keeper.
