"The Rope​-​A​-​Dope EP"

by Emil Lanne

The Leg Up 07:09
Honey 06:11


"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, slap my honey on some flapjacks and if you touch mine, I jack you in the face." Those are the famous words of the inventor of the "Rope-A-Dope" style, Muhammad Ali. As awesome as it would be to have him on the next Flapjack Digi, he was a boxer, not a dj, although some say he danced in the ring. Flapjack Digi #7 is called "The Rope-A-Dope EP" though, and come from Sweden's own, now Brooklyn transplant Emil Lanne. This EP is everything you want in a well rounded morning munch with a lotta punch!

Emil cooks up a soul grabber with his first cut "That's The Way". With funky sax licks, key licks, and the unforgettable "that's the way ya got to go, put ya hands in the air when I say so" vocal hook, there is no way to keep yourself from spilling all over your Sunday bests.

"Champagne Poppin", the most recent addition to the menu continues this jack journey with a little of the old bubbly. A fine smooth groove that makes you want to pop on your tuxedo and make a black tie affair of it.

"The Leg Up" is a straight up disco funk feel good flapjackin jam! This is the tune that landed Elvis on the moon and Emil Lanne on Flapjack. This tune is do superior that it could satisfy the appetite of the king.

Last but not lunch is "Honey". A spoonful of this cut goes great in your tea, on bread, and wonderful to dip your chicken nuggets in. I definitely want to dip mine in it. "Honey" is a perfect bouncer to round out an outstanding four star meal. I fully recommend that you call ahead and make reservations for the "Rope-A-Dope EP" as its bound to fill up quick.
