When DJ, producer and songwriter Danny Massure moved home to San Diego, he teamed up with a new group of musicians. The result is "Busted". Four new tracks that are original compositions with live instrumentation and no samples.
The EP starts off with the title track, "Busted", a banging afrobeat tune.
"Knuckle Sandwich" lays low with an infectious 60s/70s latin swagger.
On "No Saint" Danny called up his favorite singer and long time collaborator Miya Collins from Seattle. Miya's catchy lyrics and soulful vocals over Danny's funk produced a sassy funk anthem for the ladies who aren't tryin' to get played.
"Fix It" rolls into the late night, chopping Miya's vocals over a house groove for DJs transitioning from funk and afrobeat into a jackin' house set.
Diesler, one of Danny's favorite producers, flips "Busted" into a relentless afro-chugger that builds pressure with an acid bassline.
Atlanta duo CaZ laces a pair of boogie shoes on "Busted" for a trip to afro-disco land finished off with analog synths, afro vocals and a stompy shuffle.
Shantisan transforms "Knuckle Sandwich" into a bouncy afro-house track with a pounding beat, african vocals and instrumentation and a 70s flavor.
Ed Royal takes us back to the glory days of house with a stompy beat and grooving bassline on his remix of "Fix It".
Zamali brings the sexy to the funk on his uplifting disco-breaks remix of "Fix It".
Trotter aims to destroy the dancefloor with his nufunk breakbeat twist on "No Saint" which is sure to be a hit with the midtempo breaks crowd.
