Description

The Basement is soo excited to have these guys spinning some tunes down here on June 8th....

Since their glorious debut ‘As We Do Our Thing’ arrived with a bang and introduced the world to Bristol’s favourite sons–TheAllergies' lives have consisted of a tireless schedule of non-stop party rocking across Europe, and mixing up funkyconcoctions in the studio in between tours.The prolific duo has established themselves at the top table of funk, soul and hip-hop, withtheir spicy fusion of breaks.Taking classic sounds and reshaping them for the modern dancefloor is what they do, and nobody does it better...The proof is in the pudding–To date they have not one, but two ‘BBC 6Music Album of the Day’ awards, support fromthe likes ofMixmag,The Observer,IDJ,We Plug Good Music, and a barrage of radio champions behind them, as well asmultiple appearances across the BBC on6Musicand Radio 2 and 4.Their third full length album–‘Steal The Show’ is a continuation of this momentum with the guys expanding evenfurther on their sonic palette–More vocal features, more live instrumentation, and of course more funk!Some familiar faces return to the fold withAndy Cooper(Ugly Duckling),Dr Syntax(The Mouse Outfit,Foreign Beggars)andHoney LaRochelleall contributing their vocal talents to the tasty beats served up by these chaps.But the fun doesn’t stop there as the guys also bring in recent DOOM collaboratorsA.S.M, Fun Lovin’ CriminalUncleFrank, MC extraordinaireSkunkadelic, and soul/blues vocal powerhouseIzo FitzRoyto come join the party.Standout tracks include the sister funk singles ‘Can’t Keep Working This Hard’ and ‘Dance Now', that both boast sassysoulful toplines, itchy breaks and more bass bumps than Bootsy Collins on the dodgems.Elsewhere hip-hop big guns A.S.M get the floor moving with ‘When The Heat Comes Down’ and its rolling funk guitarriff, and Mr Andy Cooper’s lightning fast rap linguistics on ‘Run It Back’ will leave jaws on thefloor, before the cheekypercussion extravaganza that is ‘Samba Fox’ closes things off.Good things come in threes, and the third album by The Allergiesis a stone-cold, floor-filling, must have record whetheryou're a new listener, or have already beenconverted to their funky gospel.‘Steal The Show’ was released via Jalapeno Records on 28.9.18.
