K.L.A.M. “Funky 4″

Posted on Aug 11th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

“If your name’s not down, you’re not coming in!”

With that simple, sampled phrase, London duo Kicks Like A Mule captured nightclub life perfectly on their ’92 rave hit “The Bouncer.” Their party anthem doubled as a mission statement for an irreverent attitude and anything-goes production aesthetic that carried them through other seminal early productions (Awesome 3′s “Don’t Go,” London Posse “Pass The Rizla”), fueled two decades of behind-the-scenes handiwork in some of the UK’s most important musical movements, and informs recent production work for maverick artists from Gil Scott-Heron to Wiley.

Following a series of triumphant festival gigs and recent remixes for the likes of Major Lazer, MIA, The Prodigy and Kid Sister, K.L.A.M. comes screaming back with a new original release on Fool’s Gold, the dancefloor flash grenade “Funky 4.” The tune is a cheeky nod to the group’s breakbeat past, but its frantic snare rolls and staccato bass thumps are undeniably right on time. Smash remixes by dirty house titans The Martin Brothers and two-stepping upstart Hot City round out the release, while dark and dubby b-side “South London A1 Sound” offers another look at where K.L.A.M. are headed today.

Grab it now exclusively on Beatport, and get your name down early! There’s also a “Funky 4″ chart of recent favorites from the gents to keep you moving.
