Here's my review of this vital release:
VA - Electrofunk Resistance - Dominance Electricity DR048
Following Dagobert & Kalson's successful "Astronauten EP" last year, Dominance Electricity returns with another milestone of a release in form of a compilation that demonstrates once again how ahead of its time is the East Germany based Electro music company.
Taking you back forty years ago in a time where P-Funk was emerging, long awaited "Electrofunk Resistance" introduces an homogeneous collection of twelve refine cuts that compliment each other brilliantly, combining the very best from the past music to the current Electro Funk sound.
Within the same quality that characterized Dominance Electricity's "Global Surveyor Vol.3" back in 2010, this off the chain opus offers international electrofunk, bass & breaks ruled by assorted cuts of beats, inspired programming sequences, clear synth lines, almighty vocoder action and heading vocals throughout on a mission to preserve Electrofunk existence. Nice surprises as well as brilliant inaugural contributions from the like of some of today’s freshest underground signatures put "Electrofunk Resistance" compilation under the strobe light on this old school flavored release with deep 70's - 80's influences venturing into the musical lands of Funkadelic, Parliament, Egyptian Lover and the West Coast of US, or Midnight Star!
From the funkysized atmosphere of the opening track, "Americhael", an instant winner by French Principles Of Geometry (Tigersushi) made of attractive vocoder lyrics over a relentless melody, the compilation operates a brief curve into the Synthpop New Wave register thanks to Datassette. The UK gifted talent (Ai Records, Shipwrec) has no equal to turn every original he touches into gold. Offering here his fourth and best remix, he serves up an incredible cover of New Order's 83 classic "Blue Monday"! Rush on his website datassette.net for more insane reworks (Grandmaster Flash "The Message", Kate Bush "That There Hill", etc.) including his latest revisited version of Joy Division's "Love Will Tears Us Apart", just a state of art!
Coming next are Casio Social Club vs XS Night (Mullet Records), two fresh artists hailing from England delivering their funky 1984 style song "More Love" while German Sygaire & Defcon feat. Capitol A (Raw Fusion Recordings) introduce "The Latest" (Electro Mix), a purist Oldschool hip hop electro funk mayhem. Maintaining the compilation into the sphere of funk, well known The Artificial Arm (Orson Records) signs a feverish "Get Down (To The Sound)". His robotpop jam is immediately followed by "Oxygen", a great slice of Breakdance/Boogaloo funk, to bring closer to Funkmaster Ozone imprint, hammered out by German Fendaheads (Dominance Records) who inaugurates a series of forthcoming releases on Dominance Electricity.
From the same country comes Dynamik Bass System (International Deejay Gigolo Records, Monotone). Four years after the "Mighty Machine" album, the Robotmachine Records mastermind returns to Dominance Electricity with "Evolution", another future classic combining 808, vocoder and retro synths actions in Thomas Werner famous trademark. Tuneeee!
Netherlander Roko Dragonbreath's (Black Label) contribution sounds like a short yet epic space trip to "Planet Europia" whereas Australian DJ Sing feat. Andre Kaman (Dimensia Recordings) manages to work on multiple audio levels with its "Let's Do It" gem.
"Lost Souls", "Shining Star" & "Neon Parallels", the final tracks respectively written by Diamondback Kid (Binalog>>>Productions, Diamondback Recordings), Reggie Blount (Clone Crown Ltd.), and Biepang (Open Concept Recordings) bring the compilation to a groovy open ending, keeping on the funk pressure till the last stands of the release.
As Retro-Futurism is one of Dominance Electricity main themes since 1996, Japan's legendary sexy robot illustrator Hajime Sorayama has been asked to provide the beautiful record cover-artwork. You'll probably feel like you have received something very special when the collectible release knocks at your door, and you'll be right!!! Absolutely vital!
