Press Release :
Since 2002, the Ottawa-based band has been keeping the classic sounds of raw, gritty groove alive and well in Canada. Their style combines jazz, funk, African and Latin music with messages touching on politics and spirituality.

The blaring horns, retro keyboards and polyrhythmic beats show the influence of James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Fela Kuti and Tito Puente, but the sound remains refreshingly original. Their stylistic variety is in part due to the diverse musical backgrounds of the band's individual members: jazz, funk, blues, reggae, classical, and traditional Cuban, Brazilian and West African percussion.

"Mista President" evokes not only the spirit of a certain Mr Anikulapo-Kuti, but also a packed Shrine going nuts. 'Insurrection' on the B-side is a more straight-up funk cut that will induce feverish shape throwing wherever it is played.
