01: Get It (feat. Chip Wickham) – Mike Bandoni
02: Infinity Pool (feat. Chip Wickham) – Mike Bandoni
Skyline Recordings is from the same people who gives us Dynamite Cuts so they know what they are doing and here they give us a nice 45 from Mike Bandoni.
These two tracks from Mike Bandoni and Chip Wickham have been a long time coming. These two stable mates from the ‘Craig Charles Fantasy Funk Band’ have been discussing a collaboration for years and now; it’s finally in the bag!
Mike brings his trademark killer funky Drums (Recorded by the legendary Malcolm Catto), Percussion, Rhodes, Bass and vintage Guitar vibes to the party whilst Chip delivers some sublime and highly complimentary work on sax and flute.
Infinity Pool sounds like a long lost Bobbi Humphrey meets Bob James composition with the flute taking centre stage underpinned by what can only be described as mammoth funk grooves on every other instrument. A true modern Jazz Funk classic with just a fraction more Funk than Jazz!
Get It! is a cool number with a phenomenally infectious groove and a hook that stays in the brain for days! Think early Kool & The Gang. You’ll be humming these hooks day and night! Chip again raises the bar further with some sublime flute and sax work and is ably joined by Eoin Grace on trumpet to deliver that full fat section accompaniment that so completes this composition.
Both tracks are equally at home listened to through headphones or pumping loudly through a sound system in a club at your best Funk and Soul events.
Both tracks are getting plenty of radio play so it’s likely to shift quickly! One for the collection and a must have. Limited to 500 copies.
