From the same production and songwriting powerhouse that spawned the Sound Stylistics comes an altogether new and funkin release for 2008. Born in the same star-sign as Joey Negro's Sunshine Band project, The Super Phonics are all about invoking that classic soulful 70's disco sound, but to an updated house blueprint, with a little bit of soul and funkn thrown in for good measure. Performed by a stirling group of live musicians, including session players for Groove Armada, Incognito, US3, the James Taylor Quartet, the Brand New Heavies and the Herbaliser, you know the tunes are gonna be good to go! First up is their cover of the Linda Williams classic 'Elevate Our Minds' - a timeless soul number that has graced the decks of many a Southport Weekender as well as being recently sampled on Ben Westbeech's drum and bass smoocher 'Get Closer'. The Super Phonics take it back to the raw, with this soul-drenched cover. Over on the flip, is the bands own composition 'Have a Good Time', a jumping and pumping disco groover that should find favour on most open minded dancefloors.
