For Fans Of: Daft Punk, Ninja Sex Party, having a good time
Imagine this – you head out to your local music venue to catch up with a mate. He’s running late so you mosey on over to the stage to see who’s sound checking before their set, and you’re greeted by a man in a bright yellow space suit donning a giant orange helmet (complete with lights) wielding a keytar, a jetpack-wearing bright red and gold robot on lead guitar, a blue Egyptian lion with a majestic mane on the bass, and a stout, black and white robot who kind of resembles the robot from ‘The Iron Giant’ on drums. That, my new friends, is Doctor Sung, Lord Phobos, Commander Meouch, and Havve Hogan, and with their powers combined, they are Tupper Ware Remix Party.
“Oh Matt, that sounds like the raddest shit since Will Smith’s haircut in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Where can I listen to this?” Well boy, isn’t this your lucky day! Tupper Ware Remix Party have released a new track entitled ‘Makin’ A Move’, off their soon-to-be-released EP, Guardians Of The Zone – and let me tell you, it scratches that funky slapbass-filled itch that we’ve all got oh so good.
Joining Tupper Ware Remix Party on this funkadelic adventure is guest vocalist Lydia Persaud, who fans of the band may recognize from one of their earlier songs, ‘ICQ’ off of the 2nite EP, who once again graces our ears with her sexy, soulful tones and plays off Doctor Sung’s vocoder vocals in pure 80’s fashion. But wait, there’s more! Tupper Ware Remix Party are also joined briefly by Ninja Brian of Ninja Sex Party fame – who, like the name suggests, appears out of thin air with a groovy keyboard solo before he POOFS right out of the way.
Don’t let the dual collaboration steer you away, there is more than enough Tupper Ware Remix Party goodness to go around on this track, with driving slap basslines which just make you want to dance, vocoder magic that gives David Copperfield a run for his money, and a brief but dreamy guitar solo. Please stand clear, because the soul train is pulling into the station and you don’t want to miss it. Give ‘Makin’ a Move’ a spin and be sure to check out Guardians Of The Zone when it crash lands to earth on April 23rd.
