Brit Funk at it’s best! The 1981 classic Index – ‘Starlight’, that commands prices of up to 85, gets a much deserved and long-awaited, remastered reissue. A melding of genres, that incorporated elements of funk, disco, soul and jazz, Brit Funk harnessed a raw energy bubbling up in the UK scene through the late 70s & 80s. Index ‘Starlight’ is a prime example of this spirit. Timeless in its makeup, glistening keys, full-frontal basslines and bold funk guitars give the foundation for those divine male and female vocals to sweep over. Take to the B side for ‘The Break’ version leaving the vocals at bay and letting the exquisitely arranged instrumentation work the dancers into a frenzy. Favoured by everyone from Four Tet and Motor City Drum Ensemble to Gilles Peterson and DaM-FunK for its extended grooves and uninterrupted breaks, it’s a Brit Funk bomb if there ever was one. A must for any discerning digger out there, this deserves a place in every collection!
