For this release Mr. Confuse is checking in with a cover version of Debbie Deb’s electro classic in true organic funk style with an incredible Horn section, while Lack Of Afro spices things up with an authentic deep funk mix.
Mr. Confuse is no stranger to the world of funk and breaks. In early 2005 he founded a producer team called Breakout. Being a crafted producer and songwriter he came up with the idea of reworking the 80s classic “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa and transformed it into a heavy funk tune. The tune was released on 7” and shortly after on 12” including a jazzy version of “Planet Rock“ which gained massive worldwide respect. (more…)
Outbreak = Breakout, the supa producers behind the massive “Planet Rock”. “The Party” is a sitar driven party-anthem based on the theme song of a famous Peter Sellers movie. “Just Give Me Some Of You Lovin’” is a HipHop take on Donovan.
Produced by Mr. Confuse, Info & Kova (more…)
