Image: 1595278 "Boomerang EP" is the latest from the prolific Bay Area funkster known as Diamond Ortiz. From the jump, it's clear that he's a student of the gutter school of 1980's synth funk, a la Roger Troutman, but he brings a new dimension to the genre by incorporating a blues influence that allows him to create even more melodic, bouncy soundscapes than many of his predecessors.

Short and sweet, the "Boomerang EP" weaves its four tracks into a story that tells of a troubled love that culminates in a tenuous, but hopeful ending with the album's title cut. While the subject matter further reflects his blues influence, the grooves themselves are drenched in thick layers of funk, always uptempo and utterly danceable.

The EP can be considered an appetizer while modern funksters await the release of the first Diamond Ortiz LP, also coming from MoFunk Records. Available from 13.03.2015
