Given that Italian funk-breaks duo Skeewiff have been plugging away for some 15 years, a 'best of' is definitely in order. For the uninitiated (or even those who lost track of their output years ago), Greatest Wiffs offers an excellent summary of their career to date. Their sound - a fun, funky an unfussy fusion of floor-friendly breakbeats, kitsch '60s easy listening samples (see the triumphant "Soul Bossanova"), horn-totin' soul, heavy funk and Blaxpolitation attitude - is unfussy and joyous, unconcerned with the vagaries of fashion. As a result, Greatest Wiffs is a good old-fashioned blast of party-starting fun. We could have done without the silly country-breaks of "Delta Dawn", mind.
