Mr. Confuse – Right On / Low Life| November 21st, 2008 | posted in 7inches
How good is this? Mr. Confuse shows his talent to build hard hittin’ beats in a conscious hiphop style. Drop the needle for this funky beatmonster and a prancing piano hook with classy sax stabs sure will infect you. Cool down on a massive horns break until the saxophone steps into a dirty chopped Public Enemy style. Flip for the slow burning funk groover ‘Low Life’. Starting with some catchy stabs this souldchild turns into an echo from the past. Well balanced with some delicious brass parts and rare used effects this is a real vintage style headnodder. Sample madness galore!
Mr. Confuse is no more a stranger to the modern funk-scene. In September 2008 he released his first solo album “Feel The Fire” with great reactions from all over the globe. While “Feel The Fire” features a lot of live musicians, he gets back to his roots with “Right on / Low Life” by strictly sampling. Well known for his heavy beat constructions Mr. Confuse is always bridging the gap between heavy-funk and modern beats. Right on Mr. Confuse!

Incredible cool debut release!
Respect for “Low Life” with it’s slow soul groove, a perfect start for any prime-time set!
Can’t wait for it …
Dusty (Jazz & Milk Recordings)
Perfect transitional record for my DJ sets, bridging the gap between Hip-Hop & Heavy Funk.
Hard drums, funky piano licks, dope bass, cool sax with a few raw vocal drops thrown into the
mix for good measure (what more do you want?), nicely structured into a great dance floor party
Right on indeed fellas, good work & more like this please.

Limited funk nuggets for funk diggers!
“Low Life” sounds like a movie monster creeping out from its muddy bath growling its horns as it
steers toward you arms wide apart, dragging its clumsy feet to the low slung gritty guitar. .
“Right On” is an irresistible chugging head nodding groove that just won’t go away and will stay
with you for weeks!
