Off the Cuff
From northeast England, the production duo of “Off the Cuff” are Karl Frampton and Si Liliker. Welcoming them to the Soulfuric team with new single “Shake,” these folks know the nectar of the house fruit. Aside includes the swingin’ talent of Martin Ikin and Darren Giles for the “Solid Purpose mix”. It features an uplifting spoken-word piece, synth stabs and the classic soul-house guitar; and on the B-side, Primo (from Device) for the “Primo Mix.” Taking it deeper, adding a US-Chicago sound—damn; you ain’t goin’ wrong with this one. It includes an a cappella of spoken word—wicked, mate. www.soulfuric.com
