Blackfoxy are returning us to the land of catchy, forgotten funk. Who knew that dancing to groovy music could be this easy? This group is making a refreshing addition to their evergreen catalogue of dance music, soaked in funk rhythms. This is their latest single, African Beat. Put your dancing shoes on, this is just the beginning.
Maybe just hearing the bass line gets you in the mood. Perhaps, it takes longer, with the strings and beat coming in. Whether you like it or not after a point, you are on the quest to dance. The way the layers come in are very Parliament-Funkadelic, and that’s something I haven’t heard in a long time. Blackfoxy are detail oriented, they keep the pocket tight, precise and in flight. The first few bars are for you to get acquainted to the kind of song this is. Then you’re latched in, and the vocals take you away. As all the harmonics and brass section go on a gorgeous ballet, you seem to be invited by default. It is undeniably the kind of party starter you need, and the production allows you to appreciate it all. Time to sand that dance floor with our soles.
Their popular single has been Talk about peace, and another one called The Ghetto Girl. The band is a reminder of the kind of tones and dance energy that the 70s and early 80s were made of. This would be a great song on Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) for the kind of scenes that are set up for dancing and enjoying.
