Press Release :
First Word is back in 2008 with another firing release. 5 times DMC finalist Mike-L has been locked away in the studio to produce two tracks of his trademark funk and jazz-fuelled magic. A tribute to the music that inspires the nimble-fingered producer, A-side 'Emu Brown' is a homage to the musical genius of James Brown. The title itself is a reference to the legendary Godfather of Soul, and the Emu sampler that Mike used to construct the track. Over an insistent horn-led funk riff, Mike interweaves a series of tight solos (based on the styles of James Brown stalwarts Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and the rest). Using a host of samples from the far-flung corners of his massive record collection, this is one destined to be big on the dancefloors.

B-side 'The Word For This Is Cool' is a more laid-back affair, exploring Mike's passion for jazz music. Originally appearing on the First Word compilation 'Two Syllables Vol 2' back in November we had to put this on a 7" due to the amazing reaction. Look out for Mike's debut album later in 2008 - we've got really high hopes for this one.
