Fresh Up is Ed DMX's 7" label specialising in strictly limited edition 45rpm singles showcasing the finest in new-old-sounding library funk, Moog disco and vocoder boogie sounds.
For their fourth release, double act Ike 'N Mike present "White Chinos" - their two man tribute to an outfit worn on a mid-70s edition of Old Grey Whistle Test by peerless jazz fusion keys player Chick Corea.
"White Chinos" features relaxed Rhodes and the rawest funky guitar picking over an ancient drum machine and a pulsating Moroderish bassline. The track is topped off by some soaring 70s Roland synth action and a deadpan vocal on the subject of what to wear to the disco.
"Turn This Love Around" is a slicker west-coast disco number with some nice flute and glockenspiel lines over a funky disco backing track featuring more on-point guitar picking and a machine-driven rhythm section. Check the sweet Rhodes solo on the fade-out.
