80’s Motown-flavoured funk comes full circle with “Let Me Be Me” by @NiteFunk

NITE FUNK, “Let Me Be Me”

Get your 80’s Motown-flavoured funk on with “Let Me Be Me” by L.A.-based duo Nite Funk, consisting of instrumentalist DāM-FЦПK and vocalist Nite Jewel.  “Let Me Be Me” is like reliving the Teena Marie/Rick James experience all over again, albeit with some refinements and perhaps with some elegance replacing aggression.  This allows it to tread into Patrice Rushen/Sheila E/Rene & Angela territory and the instrumentation throughout just shimmers.  This is warm and inviting R&B/dance with so many retro graces on a contemporary tip.  Note in the credit that the mastering is done by François Kevorkian, whose name will be well-recognized by  70’s and 80’s remix fans.  Simply very well done!  Get it on iTunes.
