Not entirely sure if we posted any Mr Gonzo before, but for those of you who don’t know: he’s a mysterious chap from Paris who makes 21st century funk disguised as French house. Its full of off-the-cuff samples, pitched synths and a general air of chaos.
He has new EP out his week and it shows why he’s certainly one to keep and eye out for over the next 12 months. ‘Dance On You’ is an over-the-top piece of fun-time funk that doesn’t take itself too seriously. But that doesn’t mean it’s not accomplished – far from it. It’s a heady concoction of sampled vocals, keyed up synths and falls somewhere between the incessant musical ideas of Siriusmo and the unadulterated funk of Shook.
