Review

Fresh from delivering two killer tweaks of rare groove classics from Headhunters and Sylvia St James, Opolopo returns to GAMM with two more magical reworks. He opens proceedings with a terrific revision of Yellowjackets' jazz-funk classic 'Matinee Idol', wisely giving plenty of airtime to the original's killer groove, punchy horns and mazy piano solos while also adding a few elements of his own (including delay-laden vocal snippets from a variety of other classic cuts). It's a terrific - and impressively tasteful - rub of a genuine stone cold classic. Arguably even more impactful is the Stockholm-based producer's flipside revision of Eddie Harris' 'La Carnival', which he turns into a sweaty, percussive, celebratory and solo-laden house-not-house epic. In a word: brilliant.
