OKP Premiere: XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster Get Ill With 'Show Some Respect'
Funk is to Los Angeles what hip-hop is to New York, what country is to Nashville, what Japan is to manga fans. For a land that has given us Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg and Dam-Funk, it is the gift that keeps on giving as XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster have emerged as smooth-gliding groovesters that make the carpool lane jump.
Fueled by the timeless chord progressions of early-’80s boogie + bounce, XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster showcase an impeccable sense of funk knowledge. Crate diggers and music lovers by the sheer essence of their own personality, these two have compiled their hometown brewed funk and released it on the fittingly named imprint, MoFunk Records.
The production team behind “Press Play” are back-at-it-again with the hotness in the form of “Show Some Respect”.
If you’re familiar with the last century’s titans of funk and G-funk such as DJ Quik, Battlecat and Above the Law — then you’ll absolutely get on up out your seat for this one. Packed with the smelliest of riffs, “Show Some Respect” is an exercise in funk that XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster showcase like they made a civic oath with George Clinton and Bernie Worrell.
