Imagine if you could combine the sound of the Mahavishnu Orchastra, Bootsy Collins, Blackbyrds, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five and Noel Pointer? Well you don't have to imagine it, you can just check out Da Phatfunk Clique...

"Allyagottadoisdomydance" is the lead off track of the DFunk and the Phatfunk Cliques' 7 song c/d Pandemic Love. I must have played this track about 7 times before I moved on to the next song on the disc. "It's a funky thang with a funky swang" is the reprise that is carried along a stream of steady funk and seems to be the mantra of the Phatfunk clique. DFunk and the Phatfunk Clique take all of the classic aspects of basic funk grooves and add piano and string arrangements to create a jazz/funk vibe. Pandemic Love is a sound track for coolin' out and just bobbing your head in the afternoon.
