Helvitis Fokking Funk

CD (Item 709553) SJS Music (Iceland), 2010 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A funky funky big band – and one that blasts away with a power that's just incredible – almost the force of some small combo from the funky 45 universe, stretched out over a wide range of heavy horns! The album's light years past the previous album from Samuel Jon Samuelsson – and we like that one a lot, so that will tell you what we think of this one – a record that's unlike anything else we can think of, almost a distillation of 70s funky big band modes, run through a razor-sharp sense of rhythm – and topped with a few slight keyboard touches amidst the full-on brace of horns, guitar, and percussion! The sound is mindblowing – "fokking" amazing, if we can pun off the title – and tracks include "Ahoba Rodney", "International Monetary Funk", "God Blessi Island", "Chicken Street", and "Phobos & Deimos".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising! ER employs many of the more lilting, trippier facets of the DJ Shadow sound – broken beats and percussion set the pace, with mellow keys, bass and effects gliding in, floating above, and sliding below. It's really all ... CD
