||The intriguing character known as Zackey Force Funk is bringing his
psychedelic brand of future funk to MoFunk Records, one of the prime
players in the ever-expanding world of modern funk. Designed as an
appetizer for his full-length MoFunk project, Zackey brings you “Slow
Attack,” a track that delivers on the promise of its title, with brooding,
ominous, synth-heavy production from Liquid Pegasus. It’s the kind of
track that demands play in a lowrider driving straight from the darkest
corners of hell.
The flip, XL Middleton’s “You’re So Different,” is a bonus track from his
“Things Are Happening” LP, previously only available on the CD release.
It’s a perfect counterpoint to Zackey’s A-side, a frenetic slice of modern
electro-funk, drenched in loose synth lines and staccato bass notes,
as Middleton delivers sly commentary on those who falsely declare
themselves intellectually superior. It’s a dance floor filler with a cynical,
yet humorous message intertwined.
