This release from Melbourne Australia comes through unstoppable like a freight train. Calling this 45 heavy is an understatement! The Traffic are a band made up of various musicians working in Melbourne's lively funk scene. With members from The Bamboos and Cookin On 3 Burners you know that these guys have a good handle on what makes a good funk record - and this release certainly does not disappoint.
The A Side sees the band cover a classic Jimi Hendrix song. Fire is big, brash and rocking. The drums propel the the band in a furious fashion, landing at three and half minutes of dancefloor perfection - But the real surprise is the B Side where the band cover a tune by EDM superstar Skrillex. It's on Bangarang that the band really shine, taking all those signature Skrillex squelches and squeals and turning them into a banging funk monster complete with break beats, making this an essential release for the B Boys.
