The intriguing character known as Zackey Force Funk is bringing his psychedelic brand of future funk to MoFunk Records, one of the prime players in the ever-expanding world of modern funk. Designed as an appetizer for his full-length MoFunk project, Zackey brings you “Slow Attack,” a track that delivers on the promise of its title, with brooding, ominous, synth-heavy production from Liquid Pegasus. It’s the kind of track that demands play in a lowrider driving straight from the darkest corners of hell.
The flip, XL Middleton’s “You’re So Different,” is a bonus track from his “Things Are Happening” LP, previously only available on the CD release. It’s a perfect counterpoint to Zackey’s A-side, a frenetic slice of modern electro-funk, drenched in loose synth lines and staccato bass notes, as Middleton delivers sly commentary on those who falsely declare themselves intellectually superior. It’s a dance floor filler with a cynical, yet humorous message intertwined.
