Press Release :
The Bamboos have received critical acclaim across the board from Jazz, Funk and Hip Hop publications for their previous Tru Thoughts album 'Step It Up'. They are due to release their second album 'Rawville' this May.

The Australian funk six piece are big funk collectors and inspired by artists such as The Meters, Mickey & the Soul Generation, Jimmy Smith and Reuben Wilson but have a contemporary Deep Funk sound too.

'Get In The Scene' is The Bamboos first single from the new album and it is a perfect example of the diversity of styles in their new work. The single is funk and hip hop fusion with lyrics from Ohmega Watts (Ubiquity). Lance from The Bamboos has always been a big fan and was pleased when he found out Ohmega always played The Bamboos in his DJ sets.

As a fan of the band, Ohmega's sound, style and flow works perfectly with the heavy live-sound of The Bamboos. It is a great dance floor track and has summer-lke feel which comes from the Latin-influenced flute lines and percussion.

'Get In The Scene' has more emphasis on vocals than The Bamboos' previous releases, this is also true for the album. However, they both preserve The Bamboos new school funk sound through extended drum brakes.
