We Are Coming


Ah Mr Scruff. I do have an enduring fondness for his 1999 album Keep It Unreal and the classic single Get A Move On, with it’s sample from Moondog’s Bird’s Lament. There’s something about the dusty hip hop vibes and that bit of jazzy deepness that keeps it fresh, even today. I’ve subsequently dipped in and out of his stuff. But he’s a new single out next month that’s a match for his earlier work.

The two tracks on the single are We Are Coming (Max Graef Remix) and Feel Free (Scruff 12″ Re-Tweak). The Max Graef remix is at one level a deep house affair. But it’s so infused with Mr Scruff’s downtempo funk vibe that it could almost be by him. There’s a summeriness and a happy smile to it all. Makes me want to go for the dad dance slipper-clad shuffle. The Feel Free Re-Tweak is suitable for the sit down that I need after all that activity. It’s more melancholy, riding in on trumpet and double bass. Highly recommended release.
