Sophomore album from Soul Clap on double vinyl! The Boston DJ/producer duo take the funk to the next level on their eponymous second full length. Not only did Eli & Charles travel to George Clinton's legendary What? Studio to record (P-Funk's creative space), the two also collaborated with several local artists to birth a funk-house love child like no other. From sexy funk hybrids like "Future 4 Love" with Nicky Monaco, the vocoder-laced P-funk vibes of "Synthesizer Girlfriend" with Ntem & Hazmat Talkbox, or the super soulful house grooves of "Shine - This Is It" with Nona Hendryx, it is clear the funk is alive and well with these two. Also includes the juicy house of "Dirty Leslie" with Wolf + Lamb, the heavy "B.O.G.," and the aptly titled floor-worker "Funk Bomb." 11 tracks total.
