Sliding into 2018, Timmion Records once again get the jump on funky releases with the Soul Investigators backing the one and only Ernie Hawks on “Scorpio Walk”. Taken from the upcoming his debut Scorpio Man Lp, which will be released in the first quarter of 2018, “Scorpio Walk” is another side that you definitely need to be on the look out for. Part film noir, part ’70’s spy thriller, and gritty surf flick all rolled into one. This thing is heavy, and like previous tracks like “Scorpion Man”, Hawks knows his way around that funky flute and he is not afraid to flaunt it. The track’s all about an infinite groove that features crazy percussion, fuzzed out bass lines, and a jazzy air about to it. But let’s be real, this track is funky as all get out, something Timmion Records knows all too well. The flip, “Message Of Love” could have been pulled from early library music or porn archives. Comparable to rare french Fender Rhodes tracks by Michel Sardaby and the like, the flip is a dope accompaniment to the A-side. So if you have yet to grab a slice of Ernie Hawks and the Soul Investigators, here’s your chance at another fantastic 45 from the Timmion camp. Still by far the best promo/ one sheet I have ever received from a record company, these new sides are raising the bar higher and higher even earlier this year. We are only a few weeks into 2018 and labels are starting off the year with H-E-A-T. Listen to the track below and hear for yourself.
