4-track EP by Steve Bird AKA Mr. Bird. 'Dance Away' is a scorching collaboration with Chief Commander Yaaba, one of the lead singers of London based combo Yaaba Funk, featuring an undeniably catchy bass line and Afro horns blended with a string of unexpected beat variations. 'The Sasquatch' with its constant, relentless beat foundation spiked with stabs of funky phrasing hooks the listener from its inception, regardless of language, in an almost hypnotic mantra of soulful discourse. 'Floating Funk' teases the less attentive ear into believing this is a simple beat statement but Mr. Bird slams and surprises with an irresistible bassline, perfectly balanced doses of guitar and a hovering - or floating! - horn section interlaced with a rhythmically proficient cowbell and cymbal section. 'Carnival Beat' with its Angolan-minded breakbeat rhythm, kalimba grooves and funk-based keys is an expertly cooked platter of hot and spicy flavours served in a dish of well mixed grooves which will drive any listener to get down and grind away with a smile.
