Double D Force - Enforce The Funk

They start the first song saying "We're the Double D Force, we enforce the funk, so turn the volume up and let the speakers bump" over vintage synths and cowbells and there couldn't be a better introduction for this portuguese project. To put it in a few words, this is a lesson on how to create the perfect groove in 3 easy steps. Firstly, take inspiration from late 70's and early 80's electro, as introduced by pioneers such as Afrika Bambaataa. Mix some 70's house and disco elements with early hip-hop techniques, as heard in the compilation "Big Apple Rappin'". And then, the Midas touch: update it all to the year 2006, with contemporary electronic effects and sounds, giving special attention to the funk molecule. Genuinely addictive.
