ORGONE - Karma Sutra / Funky Nassau 45 (Nuff Rope)

Excellent nu-funk seven from LA band Orgone - a tearing original funk workout or afro cover of 'Funky Nassau' - wicked dancefloor funk.

Orgone are the resident house band at LA's Rootdown night (run by the Stones Throw label), two of their members are also part of the Breakestra, and the band itself is now the live band for the Pharcyde. Do I need to go on? Well I will do. This is their first solo release on a new UK label run by the resident DJs at Friends and Family London. Karma Sutra is a tearing dancefloor funk cut with all the band working together in the authentic very tight but loose fashion, while the other side is a storming slice of afrobeat, covering Beginning Of The Ends Funky Nassau in great fashion. Stupidly good!
