The Impellers - The Instrumentals
„Democratic deep funk heading for new dimensions.“ (Jazz Thing ,Germany)
„*This is NOT a drill - This is 100% REAL!“ (Blues & Soul magazine, UK)
„chock full of grooves ... hits me right off.“ (heavysoulbrotha.com, USA)
“... sounds like they played together for decades. “ (Soul Train, Germany)
„... marvellous ....“ (Culturemag, Germany)
Here’a special treat from Brighton’s finest The Impellers for all those who loved their second album 'This Is Not A Drill' as well as the digital funk & soul DJs out there. The 10-piece heavy soul and funk outfit from the South of England stripped „This Is Not A Drill“ to the bare essentials – which is a powerhouse of heavy instrumental soul, deep funk, latin and afrobeats.
„Let the rhythm hit ’em“ The impellers say and include two exclusive remixes to this format, reworking the album favourites „Politiks Kill People“ and „Do What I Wanna Do“.
Kerbside Collection "Mind The Curb"
"An enjoyable listen!..." (Vinyl Vibes – Germany)
“Nice one Sirs! Love it! (Dom Servini, Wah Wah 45s – UK)
“Great music and good vibes!” (Dusty – Jazz & Milk Records – Germany)
“Funky sounds indeed!” (Jake Mason, Cookin on 3 Burners – Australia)
“A gritty rhythm section of old school drums and Fender or upright bass, alongside funky Hammond and Rhodes, with some sweet George Benson-ish jazz guitar licks on top.” From the quiet tropical suburban back streets of Australia's 3rd largest city (Brisbane) comes a young all instrumental ensemble called Kerbside Collection, creating a mixture of some forgotten rare groove sounds – good times instrumental jazz funk with a touch of soul.
The sound of Ravi Welsh (Guitar), Jason “Paprika” Bell (Drum & percussion), Chris Poulsen (Hammond & Fender Rhodes) and Jeremy O’Connor (Fender “P” & double bass) harks back to the 60s and 70s Californian West Coast music of artists such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Chico Hamilton, Joe Sample and The Crusaders, whilst tipping its’ hat to today’s contemporaries keeping the ‘feel’ alive (Soulive, Bobby Hughes, James Taylor Quartet, Eddie Roberts & The New Mastersounds, The Menahan Street Band, The Stance Brothers, Frootful etc).
