Lexsoul Dancemachine has been your source for dancefloor driven funk since their début "Deus Lex Machina" in 2015. In 2018, they took a latin-funk and jazz detour with "Sunny Holiday in Lexico". Now it's time to blast open the pleasure treasure that is "Lexplosion II". 8-tracks that cross soul, boogie and house genres.
First time ever, LSDM invites international guests: the rubber-wristed guitar icon Cory Wong from US, and the Brazilian percussion maestro Luiz Black who's toured with James Brown among others like Tim Maia and Nicole Willis. The music you hear on "Lexplosion" is captured and mixed by the Solid Gold Sound production team, who have made sure the sound is juicy and turns wallflowers into floorpieces!
LP kicks off with the 7-minute "Basics" - a four-to-the-floor disco beat that features the percussionist par lexcellence, Luiz Black soloing throughout. The stomper entitled "Nu Reality" is another uptempo number, graced with a violin solo by Liis Lutsoja. The 2nd single "Entertainment" should be a staple on your contemporary soul playlist. Ready to be sampled and looped, the instrumental "Pike Jawz" is a drum track. "Money" features the US guitarist Cory Wong who lends his rubber fingers to perhaps the grooviest rhythm toting funk on the album. "Carambola Jelly" is a DJ delight that'll turn the wall flowers into floor-pieces by the end of the piano solo. "Sex" makes the world go around like a pussycat circling a shrimp salad. On the plate is a 4/4 banger that begs the question is this beat is man or (Dance)machine made. "Supersoul" will leave you in goose bumps, the vocals are central here but relentless percussion, stupidly catchy guitar riffs and solos will give way to the afterglow.
The record comes with originally painted artwork by Estookin. She took on the task to paint multiple portraits of each band member and visualize the volcano you see on the 180g vinyl cover. The cardboard jakebox CD is also graced by her painting that draws from the '80s photorealistic movie posters. It opens up to form a 3D volcano!
