Rockin' Rudy's

Japanese vocalist Q.i & producer Hair Kid, originally from New Jersey and now also based in Japan, are the duo known as Milk Talk. Their off-kilter brand of synth funk sits somewhere between modern funk & city pop but is sure to please fans of vaporwave, future funk, disco & deep house as well. Their recently-released album is still an elusive find outside of Japan but 'Wagamama Riso,' a digital-only loosie released during the early days of the pandemic, has now been unleashed in physical form on Los Angeles-based MoFunk Records. MoFunk's head, XL Middleton, remixes the track and adds his own retro-electro/R&B flair to the leftfield boogie feel of the original version. Both versions on a single 7' make this a top choice for anyone who loves their funk loaded with analog synthesizer action.Milk Talk's self-titled debut album was released recently in Japan and has added greatly to the buzz surrounding the group. However, the difficulty of procuring physical copies of their LP outside of Japan will surely make this 7' a desirable piece to add to any DJ or record collector's stash. Milk Talk was also recently featured on the Soul Clap Records compilation 'New Directions in Funk Vol. 1,' curated by XL Middleton.Tracklisting:A. Wagamama Riso (XL Middleton Remix)B.
