Y'all know Mokaad? Few ensembles were dropping funk arrangements this high level in 2012. This house party worthy track is like five tracks in one. It's a showcase of what raw struttin' feels like. It's an ideal reference for what a tight band sounds like. Fact: this short-lived group is led by none other than Gabriel Garzon-Montano which is apparent when you hear the vocals.
Production wise it's fairly nude but when the performance is this hot, you need not layer on a heavy mix. Real funk composers know where to put it. Each part is doing its job and staying out of the way of the other. If you're listening, there is no doubt about the look on your face right now.
