For such a clean-cut collection of percussive precision, there sure is a mighty stank comin‘ off Pushin On, The Quantic Soul Orchestra‘s second full-length. Raw, hypnotic funk and cinematic library instrumentals share space here with Lyn Collins-esque workouts and Rotary Connection-style compositions featuring vocalist Alice Russell. It‘s all tailor-made for those who like their summers frantic and sleepless. Even Pushin On‘s mellower tracks are love-scene interludes rather than nightcaps, and when QSO hits a groove they like, time is swallowed by that black hole that only the nastiest funk drops create. Nearly perfect.
