Manni – Smooth [preview]

Manni’s Smooth ep is the latest offering from Brazilian label Scandalo. This is a record which shows their exceptional ear for finding great original pieces of electronic music, records that inventively push at the boundary’s whilst remaining totally relevant.
This EP is full of funk and flavor, as diverse in style as it is constantly groovin. The title track Smooth, opens this ep with recognizable vocals, swinging house grooves and a luscious Rhodes pattern keeping things flowing effortlessly. A catchy track that really hooks you into the EP.
Funky groove comes correct as the 2nd track on the ep, flipping the warmth of the previous tracks Rhodes into a slap bass funk frenzy. Clever percussion programming really adds to the originality of this record. Think a computerized Stevie Wonder with a 4×4 spine and you are getting close.
Z dog closes the 3 tracker off with a familiar Manni cornerstone of a funky ass bline. Shivers of classy 80’s synth pop riffs lick through the almost filter house bassline all adding up to what amounts to a wonderfully playful and energetic track
Strong stuff from an impressive label.
