El Michels Affair

It's already Furltracks 100th post today, thanks to everyone out there following this blog and contributing music- it has been an enjoyable experience. In celebration, here's the deep funk instrumental album Sounding Out The City from the El Michels Affair. Released in '05 on Truth and Soul Records, this album stands alone in replicating funk grooves from the late 60's and early 70's leaving all other funk revival albums obsolete. El Micheals Affair created this album using non-updated instruments and a cheap lo-fi studio quality to keep away from the obviously technologically induced funk revival bands which are in abundance these days. This combined with an original use of latin and jazz-funk touches equals the unique sound of this album. From the opening track "Detroit Twice" to the ending cover of Isaac Hayes' "Hung Up On My Baby" this album is a great listen all the way through, keeping non-repetitive and fresh with the tracks only each lasting 3-4 minutes a piece. In other words, it's a great sunny day soundtrack- throw it on at your next BBQ. These furls are also responsible for the album that I posted a couple months back Enter the 37th Chamber which came out last year. Check it out if you haven't already.
