Grand St Starring Phillipa Alexander - Joe Palooka (Ft The Real Tuesday Weld & Deep Architecture Mixes) (Favouritizm)
As the electro swing dance craze continues to percolate across Europe and beyond, London’s answer to the Anthill mob, Grand St, join forces with Brighton ‘bearcat’ Phillipa Alexander for a lollapalooza of a dancefloor smash titled ‘Joe Palooka’... It’s the cat’s pyjamas! ‘Joe Palooka’ was a 1930s US comic star who was a bit of a loser by all accounts. Phillipa clearly has one sweet thing on her mind and that’s Mazuma… ‘Just show me the money!’
Making a grand entrance, ‘Joe Palooka’ kicks off with an instantly infectious brass hook performed by the a true sax tzar, Finn Peters, who delivers all the extra jazz genius trimmings over Grand St’s swinging electro-boogiewoogie groove, topped off with Phillipa’s sassy vocal. Also featured on the package is the highly acclaimed arty oddball of electronica, The Real Tuesday Weld, who fires up a proper feel-good gypsy knees up; and Deep Architecture (Si Christopher’s of Grand St) switches up, delivering a quirky dubstep outing riddled with bass filth and cut up vocals.
