Cookin' On 3 Burners - Keb's Bucket



Cookin On 3 Burners Keb's Bucket
Cookin' On 3 Burners - Keb's Bucket
(7") Freestyle Records FSR7022, 2006-07-10

Review :
This is some heavy heavy monster piece of wax!!
In the foosteps of their recent available vinyl releases in Europe - a fried 7 inch on Freestyle Records and a killer 12 inch on Knowfool Music -, Australian Hammond-Power-Funk group Cookin' On 3 Burners hit the dancefloor jackpot once again with a new 7 inch on Freestyle.
"Keb's Bucket" is indeed EXACTLY what over-polluted-with-electro-pop-clones clubs need today. Its undeniable back-to-basis approach to in-your-face raw funk is spiced up with modern sound structure action and athletic breaks, and would get all the laziest party-goers up and dancing.
The b-side "Redback" is in a Quantic Soul Orchestra deep funk kind of vibe, with a cool call-and-response interplay between the Hammond and guitar, making this 45 and essential release for all funk DJs and collectors. Djouls

Press Release :
Following their hugely popular (and increasingly rare!) singles on Bamboo Shack, alongside the re-issue of "Gravel Rash" on Freestyle last year, Melbournes funkiest trio step up once again with another straight up groover. Comprising of members of Tru-Thoughts signing The Bamboos, the Cookin' On 3 Burners sound is a rawer, more stripped back style reminiscent of the late Jimmy Smith, Richard "Groove" Holmes and Jimmy McGriff at their fiercest.

"Keb's Bucket" is an ode to a certain deep funk DJ's overflowing receptacle of... well - who knows what? Whatever he keeps in there it's creating a lot of steam as this track slashes the dancefloor with its strutting bass and hammond interplay spilling over the tight drums. Over on the flip "Redback" provides more of the same but with a more laid back Grant Green sort of vibe. More essential funk for your trunk from Freestyle!
