It’s a pleasure as always to welcome back a true BBP all-star: Morlack to drop another fresh handful of funky jams on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings. Following up on his successful full-length album Hypersonic Freak from last year – here’s Morlack back in better shape than ever!
The Morlack sound has been perfected – the beats have been sharpened and the bass lines empowered. The Touched It EP is the perfect example of how Morlack takes an obscure funk tune and turns it into his own by adding his signature straight up beats and twisted drunken-style ghetto bass.
The EP kicks off with a tip of the hat to certain MC Hammer who made this Rick James hook famous – now with a big Morlack bass lines on it – yeah he Touched It!. Riding on with the Born 2 Boogie joint, which really showcases the Morlack sound with an undeniable funky groove, twisted ghetto bass and upbeat oldskool rapping. The next couple of tracks takes us on a journey – first to the soft side and then to New York – just riding the funk wave. The EP slows down at the end with the Part 2 of the awesome Who Is He, which was originally release on the Fly to Paris EP in Dec 2014.
Morlack holds his position as the hardest working man in Ghetto Funk and we are BBP are happy to be the platform for the funky output that keeps coming out of the Morlack studio…
“Denmark may not spring to mind when thinking of the late, great Rick James and his breed is glittery funk. However its Danish label Breakbeat Paradise that Go-Go addict Morlack has chosen to release his James-referencing Touched It EP. This one even comes with a special video featuring the James-meister in his spandex-clad prime. In short this EP is packed with five retro boogie edits, highlights of which include the pitch-bent boogie stomp of the title track, the tight digital synth funk of “Take A Ride On The Soft Side” and the quirky groove mania of “Take A NY Trip”.”
