Mr. Confuse - The Groove Merchant (The Uptown Felaz Remix)

The Groove Merchant (TUF Remix)

This new Shiftin’ Gears 12″ features four great dancefloor oriented remixes by label owners The Uptown Felaz! Popular local (Irie Maffia, Kerekes Band) & international artist’s (Mr. Confuse, Kokolo) tunes were rethought by the band, the musical style is the usual funkbreak spiced with some world music & breakbeat.

The second track remixed on side A is The Groove Merchant, a great funk track by german artist Mr. Confuse. Already released digitally on his remix album (Feel The Fire – The Remixes – LEGO018) but thanks to the enormous number of downloads the label was kind enough to allow us to release this rework on vinyl as well!

First track remixed is Csango Boogie by local group Kerekes Band. A modern funk tune with hungarian folk musical elements  which  is also known in Hungary  for its great Lego figure videoclip. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KS9hqZuT0U). This remix includes lyrics by Mc Soup (Jurassic 5) the acapella  taken from Dj Z Trip’s track  ‘Listen To The DJ’, all permission was granted kindly by Mr. Z Trip. The tune recieved great radio airplay  and was also used as soundtrack by the New York Hungarian Institute in one of its promotional films but available officially for the first time here!

Side B kicks things of with one of the most popular festival bands in Hungary, Irie Maffia. The video hit Slow Down Chale from their new album Whats My Name!? has been a retouched  by The Uptown Felaz and has had great reactions so far! Massive funkbreak with a great singalong vibe, a pure party anthem for the peak hours!

The last track remixed by The Uptown Felaz on the EP is The Magnificient Seven, a storming  track (originally a Clash tune)  by American latin sound ambassadors Kokolo.  Style is dub-Latin funk  & balearic elements are also inlcluded! This bit is definately a worthy closing to this vigorous EP!
