Evil Needle & Q Funktion - Roots Dub & My Music (7")
Cold Busted gets lively with another 7” single in the label’s acclaimed reggae and dub series. This time Greek instrumental hip hop duo Q Funktion meet French/German DJ Evil Needle, each presenting a previously digital-only tune now benefiting from the warmth and grit of Cold Busted vinyl. Evil Needle takes the A-side, delivering the smooth blunted skank of “Roots Dub”. Flying hi-hats, liquid guitar plucks, melodic organ, and a hospitable horn section come together on this satisfying track, providing good vibes and a warm glow to all its listeners. Q Funktion are up next with “My Music”. Consisting of producers Mr. Echo and Earcon, this duo have constructed a tasty sonic morsel based on a reggae staple. The cut breaks into a blissed-out mid-section that halves the tempo and triples the spaciness before splashing back to the groovy main tune. Both these cuts are rhythm treats for the coolest of DJs and solid rockers for the house party aficionado.
