Dojo Cuts "Take From Me"




Australia seems to be the heart of the Nu-Funk movement. Besides bands such as Cookin’ on 3 Burners, The Bamboos, Deep Street Soul and Kyle Auldist Dojo Cuts seem to be stirring up a storm in the Southern hemisphere and beyond, making them the most likely candidates to become the brightest stars of this fast growing scene.

The six piece band Dojo Cuts, formed in 2008, combines crisp, tight, funky instrumentals with some killer vocals by the delectable Roxie Ray. Every band has their secret weapon and Dojo Cuts are blessed with two – the insistent and driving rhythm guitar of Nathan Aust and the startling vocal of singer Roxie Ray.This combination creates a timeless, classic feel-good music.

Legendary NYC producer Gabriel Roth and Neal Sugarman (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings / Amy Winehouse / Daptone Records) have already declared themselves fans of the band, and Roth even wrote the liner notes of their debut album – so you know this is a group worth keeping an eye on!

Now they have released their second album called “Take From Me” on the funky independent label Recordkicks , based in Milano, which is also know for bringing out artists like Nick Pride & The Pimptones, The Baker Brothers or Kokolo.

After the jumping horn funk intro of ‘El Entro’ the band gets down to dirty business with the sweet soul strut of ‘I Can Give’ and the party is on. ‘Mamacita’ is one of many standouts – a thrill ride with tasty latin jazz-flute filigrees decorating the funky greasy pork chops. ‘Sonny’s Strut’ lets the band flex their groove muscles; ‘Sometimes It Hurts’ is late night city lights and sorrow over cocktails; title track ‘Take From Me’ is smooth like butter – Take a listen, have a dance, take the Take From Me ride.
