Our friends over at Cherries Records are hard at work once again. This time, for their eighth release, they tap into some four on the floor disco funk from deep in the Arizona desert with Biología’s “Nite Lite”. Biología was formed by multi-instrumentalist Joe Nunez, a scientist by trade. As an escape from the daily grind he started making music with his vocalist sister Mama Kat. A live band was formed around their initial music, and musicians Corey Gomez, Justin Khan, Jet Dispo and Isaac Parker soon were backing this funky duo. Influenced by deep disco, jazz fusion, funk, and progressive rock, Biología and Cherries have come up with the right formula on this 45.
With “Nite Lite”, the debut 7″ from this outfit on Cherries explores some dance floor goodness with a deep bass line and female vocals that scream “keep it moving!” Tinged with gospel vocals and a stone cold groove, we dare you not to dance to this. The flip, “Too Bad” has a beautiful piano riff, some hand claps and magical guitar while you sashay onto the dance floor. Both strong, powerful dance sides, Cherries continues to push the envelope with unique modern funk and soul releases. Everyone from Q Tip to Gaslamp Killer loves Cherries, and you know what? You should too. A great label dedicated to putting out great music. Listen for yourself.
