Boomkat Product Review:
Apron and Pacific Rhythm alum Space Ghost comes correct with a new three-piece funk set that sounds as if it's been dragged out of the time tunnel - pure 1980s smoove grooves, cooked to perfection. Like Dâm-Funk covering Michael McDonald, and just as sick as that sounds.
Superb this one - Sudi Wachspress has been churning out respectable throwback tunes for years, but 'Heaven Sent' is his most convincing set of retro funk/soul/yacht rock we've heard yet. Seriously, if someone told us this was unearthed '80s material we'd fully believe them: from the slippery synths and snipped beatbox grooves of the title track to its unforgettably sensual vocals, it puts you right there. It might be the vocals that are Space Ghost's secret weapon, the Michael McDonald falsetto - most recognizable from Warren G and Nate Dogg's sample-heavy 'Regulate' - is perfectly rendered, and it works.
'Little Bit of Love' and 'Relax Your Mind' continue the vibe accurately, with the latter turning down the tempo significantly, adding FM flutes, bells and ice-cold harmonies for a sex jam that might be among the best Space Ghost tracks we've heard.
