London-based DJ, producer and musician Dr Rubberfunk might not be medically trained, but he does know a thing or two about treating your ears, as he returns with the fourth installment of his popular “My Life at 45” series with new double-sider 45 “Boom!” / “Steppin”.
A side “Boom!” features the vocals of the UK’s leading blues & soul singer – John Turrell, who recounts the sorry tale of a man who has burned the candle at both ends, leaving him with just his recriminations and a great slab of wax on his hands. As always though, with JT, it’s delivered with humour: “I’ve got the Tuesday tears, got the Wednesday woes – my serotonin too low …”. On the flip “Steppin’ In” is a low slung beat fest that is guaranteed to make your head nod, as piano, guitar & Hammond ride a tight jazz funk groove.
Having established himself in funk, soul, blues and jazz circles with a ton of high calibre releases, the good doctor holds a reputation for quality productions, with a hands-on approach, both in front of, and behind the mixing desk, as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and producer. His “My Life” series has spawned sell-out runs of limited edition 45s, won praise from the likes of BBC6Music, FIP, Fatboy Slim and DJ Yoda, driven mixes on Mixcloud to the top of their charts, and garnered enthusiastic press support worldwide.
But we’ve saved the best news until last, as we are pleased to announce that the “My Life At 45” single series will form part of the forthcoming “My Life at 45” album due in February. As before, the 7” is likely to be another sell out run, so move quickly before they disappear!
