D-Funk has long been a purveyor of fine funky beats and breaks and we here at the Free Breaks Blog have always been more than happy to support the high quality free bootlegs, remixes and mixtapes that he consistently shares with the world. With that being said, when an artist of his caliber drops an EP, you can guarantee a super solid release is on the menu and D-Funks latest, entitled Back In Love does not disappoint.
The four track EP recently released on Grits & Gravy has funk as the main ingredient but as we have come to expect from every tasty treat D-Funk serves up, he has added his own extra special spiciness. Be it a dash of wobble, a hint of b-boy flair, or an extra-large helping of phat beats, he has managed to whip up a seriously delectable dish that is sure to satisfy any insatiable dance floor.
The title tune has an undeniable nu-funk flavour that features zesty horn lines and guitar licks layered with LL Cool J’s ever so recognizable lyrical rap styling’s that when combined, make for a sweet piece of ear candy. Sicker Than You and You Don’t Hear Me again feature samples of some of hip-hops elite, but this time blended to perfection with a tougher ghetto funk edge that gives them a real kick that’s well worth savouring. Hot Heating Up finishes proceedings and gets things sizzling as D-Funk turns up the tempo and takes the Steve Miller Bands Abracadabra, injects a luscious sounding synth bass and mouth watering breakbeat, infused with a plethora of instantly recognizable vocal chops that make for a mega catchy floor burner.
D-Funk has a gourmet back catalogue collection and can always be counted on to bring the most flavoursome funk to the table and with Back In Love, he has again delivered the finest prime cuts that are sure to have the party people coming back to the dance floor for seconds. It’s definitely worth tipping the chef for this one.
