Strange Breaks And Mr Thing 3 / Mr Thing

Mr Thing - Strange Breaks And Mr Thing 3


Mr Thing has built up a resume as one of the most sought after DJ/Producers on the scene today. He and BBE have formed a strong relationship that is going well beyond a decade now and with "Strange Breaks Vol. 3", it certainly feels like a happy marriage. "Vol. 3" is all about the funk and I mean Deep Funk. Mr Thing has dusted off an assortment of gritty funk joints from the seventies that will inspire you to shake your groove thing on any given day. He kicks things off with The Disco Orchestra's "Do It Again" which features slick horn arrangements that covers Issac Hayes "Do Ya". Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers "It Sure Is Funky" is highlighted by beat scratching and tasty Steel Pan rhythms.  "Fire To The Galleon" lays out some infectious guitar grooves. If you love rare grooves and funky rhythms then you'll certainly enjoy this disc.
