Mr Mageeka

Vintage Malarkey

Phutureshock Musik

Released: 7th November 2011 | 2 track uk funky single
Mr. Mageeka makes a welcome return in the wake of 'Different Lekstrix'', the mutated funky banger that caused straight up mayhem on many dancefloors the world over, upon its release via Numbers last year. The much-anticipated follow up, penned for release on Phuture Shock Musik, comes in the shape of 'Vintage Malarkey', which sees the East-Londoner offer further next level shenanigans. Employing a similar formula as its predecessor, this one is stripped down and quintessentially hypnotic - instantly luring you in with a looped God Made Me Funky - esque groove, over a brisk swinging rythm, whilst occasionally throwing you off-guard through the introduction of angular synths and offbeat claps, as well as an inspired collage of samples that maintains the quirky nature of the production throughout. The single comes backed with 'De Congo' , a funky conga-laden number; that's enhanced by an addictive fusion of West African guitar licks, kalimba stabs and frisky percussion, though the real icing on the cake being its meandering trumpet hook, altogether coming off like a live High-life jam. Early support from the likes of Rinse FM's Scratcha and Marcus Nasty.
