7th December 2021
Chris Lujan & Electric Butter feat. Andre Cruz
A: The Real Thing
B: Electric Butter
Those with a taste for the finer funk flavours are urged to read on because Chris Lujan and his Lugnut Brand Records label are back with yet another slice of funk served up on the Black Diamond imprint. On this release he joins forces with Raza Del Soul for a forty-five that packs a punch. All the proof we need to pursue a Chris Lujan release is laid bare in the man's previous releases. If high-grade funk and soul is your bag then cop this record post haste. Let's get into it. On 'The Real Thing' our hearts strings are yanked out of their sockets as Andre Cruz lays bare his heart over a low slung soul cut provided by Chris Lujan and Electric Butter that leaves us floored. So much raw emotion crammed in. This record is indeed the real deal. On the flip 'Electric Butter' the funk motor shifts to top gear thanks to Adam Scone (hammond organ and farfisa), Charlie Hunter (guitar) and Michael Reed (drums) who contribute to this funk 45 that will surely blow the selection process of 'best of' lists at this time of year wide open. Another Lugnut Brand sureshot. Stream below then cop via Bandcamp.
