Nathan Haines - The Chillifunk Years
- par : Jon Freer
It’s a little while since Nathan Haines and Phlash blessed us with a Jazzy dancefloor stormer and whilst this isn’t a new release, it does bring together some of Nathan’s finest musical gems and includes a bonus disc of key remixes. Haines is a talented musician and alongside Phlash and a plethora of instrumentals and vocal hounds, he has created some ace tracks that deserve another airing. "Earth Is The Place" is still a buoyant key and brass lifted piece, topped off by Verna Francis’s inspiring vocals, whilst "O Misterio" is flute led dream. The pick of remixes are Kenny Dope’s squelch’n’key refit of "Believe" and Ashley Beedle’s stringtastic "Doot Dude" touch up. This is a rather nice anthology, but not a substitute for a new album !
