9. Passenger Night On Earth EP (12" - Leftfoot)
Onto their third release already and Leftfoot recordings are making an impression with some pretty special releases. This time its the turn of previous Paper Recordings artist Hot Toddy/Crazy Penis aka Passenger.With only two main tracks and one remix The Night On Earth EP is actually more of a 12 - but whose quibbling. The headlining tune is latino intro coupled with a suave and sophisticated slice of eighties style jazz funk. Somewhere between George Benson, Roy Ayres and Pat Metheny. Grand Centrals boss Mark Rae is pulled in to do the remixing, adding a more contemporary edge with funkier beats and electro noises, but still remaining true to the original a sound that isnt usually associated with him.The B sides Cabin Fever keeps on the jazz funk tip with an extra injection of uplifting brass - very nice indeed
