Sure they may not have the profile of Daft Punk (who does?) but Confection’s new release ‘Let’s Fall Back’ is built on precisely the same disco-funk foundations so recently exploited by the French robot-men.
‘Let’s Fall Back’ offers up more of Confection’s trademark dancefloor blueprint: old school R&B swagger, disco nostalgia and moments of unrepentant pop bursting with sweet harmonies. It’s a sound that throws back to Chic and Prelude-era disco. A REAL live original disco creation. The bass and guitar groove lock is second only to Nile and Bernard (except it’s Mikey from Van She and Confection’s own J-Man), and the piano, drums and strings are – yep, all performed beautifully by real players. Furthermore the vocals from Juanita Tippins have GENUINE soul. This isn’t re-edited/sampled NU-disco, this is sho nuff real thang supersoul disco. People aren’t supposed to make records like this anymore!!!!
Confection have flown under the radar for a while with their pure boogie-funk-stylings, but the people in the know are jumping on board – with uber trendy DJ Miguel Campbell heavily sampling ‘I’ve Gotta Thing (4 U)’ on the track ‘Boy’ from his ‘Back In Flight School’ album (on Jamie Jones & Lee Foss’ Hot Creations label).
Campbell (best known for the massive club hits ‘Something Special’ and ‘Baby I Got It’) repays the favour with a smooth and deep nu-disco rework of Let’s Fall Back. Sydney’s Toni Toni Lee’s mix is deeper still, lowdown and bumping, J Connection’s mix is superb modern boogie tip and NYC’s Reeno provides extended remixes in the classic style of 80’s M&M 12" reworks.
