Our Label Records do not disappoint and when they put out a record, people take notice. For their latest release from their home base in Hamburg, Germany, they’ve got a double sider of funk from The Getup. No stranger to the funks scene, The Getup have been rocking stages and moving asses since 2004. Featuring an all star line up: Mark Ashfield (Hammond/Keys), Mark Claydon (Drums/perc), Ian Stevens (Bass), Lee Blackmore (Guitar), Stephen Wilcock (Sax/Flute), Tristan Gaudion (Trumpet) with Sasha Patterson (vocals) and guest appearances from Ben Greenslade-Stanton (Trombone/The Mighty Mocambos) and Mark Norton (Sax/The Fantastics), they’ve got some heavy hitters in this band. Fast forward 11 years later and Our Label Records brings out two very funky tracks to move the masses. “Take You Down” is a blast of sister funk with plenty of Hammond, horns and a driving back beat that propels Sasha Peterson’s voice to new heights. You know how much we dig sister funk here at FMF, so this track definitely takes us back. The flip, “The Cover Up” is a Hammond heavy jam that will get the most invalid person up and shaking a tail feather. Considered a car chase track from the label, we definitely see where that is going. In our minds we see a packed out Jazz Cafe and sweaty bodies getting up (and down) to both of these tracks. If you are not familiar with Our Label Records, please get familiar, they are keeping good funk alive in all corners of the globe. The record is available October 30th.
