Def Harmonic – Spaced Out

From the moment the deep bass thump that opens the Spaced Out EP comes through your speakers, comparisons to Parliament-Funkadelic are unavoidable. But thirty years of musical evolution have gone by since George Clinton assembled his first crew of space cadets, and Def Harmonic use that development to its fullest potential. P-Funk’s blow-your-speakers bass and vintage moog effects are here, but rather than leading to long funk jams, they’ve been corralled and sequenced into shorter, tight songs designed with the dance floor in mind (the record’s label lists the beats-per-minute of each song). Hip hop’s vocal delivery and cosmic hippie lyrics that would make any Deadhead — or Sun Ra — proud, complete the package. Four perfect tracks of positive, inventive dance-funk. Spaced Out is available on 12″ vinyl at Lotus Land Records and Atomic Records, and online at Groove Distribution, Darla, Forced Exposure, Piccadilly Records, and If music. www.wobblyhead.com
