Press Release :
The Scruffy One returns with yet more funk inside his capacious, magical trunk. Picture a thousand potato people falling in love on a crowded potato dancefloor. Picture them rubbing their potato parts together. Feel the strings tug at their potato hearts. Feel yourself become tuberous, potato-ey. Get out there and give it some before you go green and get eyes in unsightly places.

Aimed full-square and flat out at what is technically called "dancefloor domination©" "Kalimba" will give DJs everywhere a chance to relax, kick back and have a cup of tea for five minutes, while their crowd goes WILD. We cannot indemnify you against hot-drinks-related scalding.

"Give Up To Get" carries on where "Kalimba" lets off. Brass, low-slung groove, some squiggly keyboard from none other that Sir Kaidi Tatham and the kind of break which could make Hoseasons feel like Studio 54, it's an unrelenting monster, a caffeine and tannin-fuelled journey into rudimentary and highly suggestive hip wiggling.

Feel it feel it feel it. Drink tea. Go to seed. Throw some shapes. Try to catch them. Do what Mr Scruff and Mrs Cruff call "the do". Be free. The Tuna comes closer… closer… closer… stop.
