There was a time when I kept up with all the new funk records that were coming out, but as time went on and more and more people started jumping into the scene I slowly stopped checking for them. This originally came out in 2002 right around the peak of the whole thing and was "officially" released last year on Freestyle Records. They had asked me to do a remix, but it's still in limbo as I write this.
The Sound Stylistics are a loose knit band of musicians from various funk groups (James Taylor Quartet, Brand New Heavies, Herbaliser, New Mastersounds, etc) and while nothing is exactly groundbreaking on here, they get some things spot on like the song below that sounds like an outtake from Places and Spaces.
