Soul Clap ‘E-Funk’ Review on Data Tranmission

“Irony has always been attached as a statement to both belittle and gratify the duo’s impact, but there’s only one real telling bit of evidence of it here – the focus to give the album an adhesion is the very thing that takes it away.”

We told you about the imminent opus from Soul Clap when we heard about it back in March, now it gets the full review treatment over on Data Transmission. Hit the quote for the story on the Boston duo’s input

Soul Clap to release ‘EFUNK’

EFUNK, aka Everybody’s Freaky Under Natures Kingdom, is Soul Clap’s debut album out on Wolf + Lamb on April 20th. Naturally they’ve come up with some tongue in cheek witticisms/self righteous pomp to promote the album (delete depending on which side of the fence you sit on), basically coming out and saying they are rescuing dance music from ‘the eclipse of darkness’, Soul Clap’s fist pumping (gently of course) resume of sonic tomfoolery in 2012.

‘After years spent traveling planet earth with only a turntable as transportation and a crate of records as a guide, Soul Clap settled on Earth’s tropical Art-Deco paradise of Miami as the perfect spot to build the EFUNK mothership.’

It’s deliberately 45 minutes long, split into 13 songs to fit on a single 12 inch record. It also features big lipped beauty mel Blatt from 90s girl band All Saints (check here if you’d forgotten just how fit she was) Tracklisting is as follows…

01. EFunk Intro
02. Take It Slow feat Franceska
03. The Alezby Inn feat The Genevan Heathen
04. Let It Go feat Roldy Cezaire
05. When The Soul Claps feat Lazarus Man
06. Lets Groove On feat Jules Born
07. Ecstacy feat Mel Blatt

08. Clapping Song ft. Baby Prince & The Fam
09. TroubleTroubleTrouble
10. Walk With A Clap
11. Need Your Lovin feat Mel Blatt

13. Islands In Space Part 2 feat. Greg Paulus

Trawl through dance music and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone with a bad word to say about San Fran native Justin Martin, who I’ve just interviewed for Data Transmission. But what city is he talking about exactly here? Hit the quote to find out more…

Soul Clap Valentines Mix for Oki-NI

More Valentines day shizzel, with this horizontal beauty of a mix from Soul Clap for high fashion leaders Oki-Ni. Killer tracklisting as well; featuring Barry White, Minnie Ripperton and the boys themselves. Peep the words from the Oki Ni crew below…

Whether you’re in or out of love this Valentine’s Day, we have a real treat for you from the irrepressible Boston duo, Soul Clap.

With a love of funk, disco, house and everything else in between, the pair have raided their respective record collections for songs that vibrate at a certain romantic frequency. The result is 59 minutes of aural sex, spanning the vocal spectrum from the high sensual wail of Prince to the deep baritone croon of Barry White.

The Soul Clap guys – Charles Levine and Eli Goldstein – had this to say about their mix: “This year for valentine’s day we’ve done something a little different. Instead of a mix to share with two we’ve made it for one. A three part story for all your intimate bedroom fun.”
