Dimitri / Barumbi

A 2 track funk single (7m 5s) — released July 1st 2013 on Audio Montage

Straight out of the Israeli flourish groove label "Audio Montage" comes yet another bomb by the name of "Crunch 22". Led by one of "The Apples" turntablists, Erez Todres, "Crunch 22" is an eclectic power trio, built from a unique instrumental combination of Rhodes, drums & turntables. With influences deriving from funk to afrobeat, dub to jazz and rhythm&blues to drum'n'bass, Crunch 22 easily transform every concert into a party.

Both tracks open with soulful drum break followed by fat bass line and taken from the band's self titled debut album, due to be released this summer. "Dimitri" on the A side is a mid tempo oriental psych piece with a mysterious violin sample and an Arabic chant. On the flip side, "Barumbi", an up tempo afrobeat tune, which triggers the mind on a wave of an electric tribal dance. This vinyl is a 500 limited edition print under the "Delights" 7 inch series by "Audio Montage".
