The prolific Manchester-based artist known as Robot Needs Oil has been found covertly recording downtempo and hip hop-fueled beats under the curious name of My Neighbour Is. This guise has now yielded the third album for the Cold Busted label in just under six months. The previous two, Fish & Chips and Metaphysical Juicer, were for the b-boys and then the skankers, but this one is strictly for the shakers. That’s right, My Neighbour Is … is in a funk. A wake-up call for the hips, Hot Cakes, Cold Drinks, & Scrambled Eggs is the title for the album, featuring eleven tracks of heavy soul and funk combined with the prerequisite dope beats. Arise and smell the stank aromas wafting in from the wah-wahs of rhythmic guitars, sliding over on-beat/off-beat afro percussion, and rubbing in big band motifs that say it’s okay to be horny in the morning. One might get a familiar whiff of a riff here and there, but don’t say ‘samples’ … the word is ‘homage.’ Cuts with titles like “Legs Quarter To 3,” “I Want My Multipack,” and “Don’t Stop My Gran Torino” are sure to quickly energize the deadest of dance floors. So wipe those weary eyes and watch the early daylight dance to the break of dawn with some Cold Busted and My Neighbour Is … it’s on!
