Fila Brazillia - Power Clown

Fila Brazillia

Power Clown


Released: 1st August 1998 | 13 track downtempo album
Review: iTunes (2006) The eclecticism and organic warmth of Fila Brazillia's electronica continue to amaze on Power Clown, one of their finest efforts to date. Laid-back jazz-funk grooves straight out of the '70s are the foundation of the record, but hints of Stevie Wonder-esque soul, hip-hop, bossa nova, ambient, spacey techno, house, minimalist electro, big-beat and trip-hop all pop up here and there, as do touches of ethnic percussion, acoustic guitar, saxophone solos, new age-y synth flourishes, and the occasional odd vocal sample or sound effect. What really pushes Power Clown over the top, though, is that the group maintains their focus throughout, never meandering and changing things up often enough to keep the grooves from becoming repetitive. One of the finest and most over-looked electronic-dance releases of 1998.
"One of the finest and most over-looked electronic-dance releases. "
"A classic of downtempo magic!. Postmodern funk, Latino beats and the soulful ambience of 70s blaxploitation soundtracks."
Bigbaer, Urban Alternative Music
"With 'Power Clown' Cobby and McSherry have produced their most mature and finely tuned album to date. "
Rob Wood, Mixmag Update
"The subtle assuredness and fizzing sleight-of-hand at play here which makes you wonder why Mr Fila hasn't yet achieved Air-like fame."
Calvin Bush, Mixmag
