Releasing on December 16 via Helsinki’s Timmian Records, ‘Scorpio Man Theme’ is a gloriously percussive, superbly soulful, flutey-funk frenzy 45, which comes to you courtesy of the flute wielding monster, Ernie Hawks. Hawks has been creating music for the past two decades and has now teamed up with Helsinki’s soul revivalists and Timmion label founders, The Soul Investigators.
Kicking off with a bloody funktastic, breakbeat rhythm, ‘Scorpio Man Theme’ is an instant winner, and it only gets better! It’s curious flute-driven melody has a satisfying and mysterious edge which, accompanied by big brass sounds, has the power to shift you straight into a classic 70’s groove. I love the beats, I love the groove and can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be able to stop yourself from funking out to this! Listen above.
I can also strongly recommend that you check out the other superb releases from Timmion Records, either on their Bandcamp or Soundcloud page; this bunch are literally brimming with supersonic, soul-funk sounds!
