Press Release :
The Nextmen "Squelchy North London space-funk for the year 8000"
The Bees "Brilliant! Straight from the organically-grown aisle at somerfield. We want more jumbonics!"
XLR8R Magazine "Mothballed drums, suiggly analogue bass and spacey organ riffs to make you feel like dressing up to get down!"
Straight No Chaser "Great stuff. Off-the-wall instrumentation to really lose yourself in"
Rainer Truby "Excellent release - tasty and different"
IDJ Magazine " A well-paced collection of beats 'n' pieces. Interesting as ever from Brighton's Tru Thoughts imprint" Mr Scruff "Minimal, cheeky wibblers"
...These were just a few of the reactions to Jumbonics' 2005 debut LP for Tru Thoughts.

This limited edition 7" single offers listeners a little taster of what to expect from their follow-up album, 'Talk To The Animals'.

Jumbonics (a.k.a. Rob Mac and Matt Smooth) are the duo behind such classic London club nights at Scratch. When they're not recording and performing as Jumbonics or DJing and promoting in the Big Smoke, they can be found moonlightning as one half of soul-funk four piece Gum Drop.

'Last Nite' sees Messrs Mac and SMooth reinvent The Strokes international hit single as a b-boy/funk anthem. The track features Norman Anderson (who recently recorded with Yam Who? and Tony Allen) on vocals and regular 4Hero collaborator Lucy Wilkins on strings.

On the flipside, 'Red One' brings Lucy's strings front and center again to help the boys create a more cinematic, soundtrack vibe.

Look out for the album, 'Talk To The Animals', which is due for release on Monday 12th February tru Tru Thoughts. The new record eschews the largely instrumental feel of its predecessor in favour of traditional, vocal-led song-structures and a more mature soul sound; perfect for fans of Yam Who?, Peven Everett and Jill Scott.
