Four score and seven years ago Flapjack had a groove, and from this groove came a groove of all grooves. Then digital recording and production took place somewhere in the UK and it was captured in 1’s & 0’s for all of us to listen to until we got so hungry for house that bacon was no longer flavorful. It just so happens that this recipe for roof shaking came straight to Flapjack Records from our UK bud Little Man Big with his “Four Score EP”. For those of you who don’t know, Little Man Big happens to be the taller half of the famed house duo Littlemen. His hunger for house music has transcended the duo and made its way to the Chicagoland area only to be spread all across the world like digital butter on fresh rolls made of thick house beats.
The EP pops out of the oven with an up n funky jack spattering called “Duck Fat Lollipop”. This delicious bird of succulent beats stays fresh over a bed of funk samples and slammin’ tasty beats. This is the kind of jam you throw into the oven when you know you will have a house packed with dinner guests ready to bite down on some riff rockin’ bump. Be sure to preheat the crowd to 450 degrees.
The first side dish “String Bean Hustle”, is a favorite at all the holidays. This dish just delivers with some bass that coats the roof of your mouth with a delicious buttery texture and leaves and aftertaste of pure get up and jack. There is no mistake that this dish is a favorite among all hustlers and those in the life. Keep a plate of this in your fridge for use with any meal.
”Misty” is a nice twist to the meal. This side dish is nice and deep and takes its time with some slower tempo sprinkled on top. This is great for those somber moods when you need some real flavor on the dance floor. You can only use this with the right meal, but most every meal is just. It’s like sex a dinner plate.
The last bit left on the plate here is a spoonful of “Just For Me”. This is one of those sentimental dishes that you just have to have or it feels like something is missing in your set. Using the same cut up and diced style of sampling as the rest of the accoutrements on the EP, this tune fills out a plate and dance floor quite perfectly. So if you are stuck ask yourself what should I be cooking up in my sets during this next gig? Just grab a handful of jams from the Little Man Big - “Four Score EP”, and let your oven do the cooking.
