Let this groove get into you Ain’t nothing that’s quite the same Let it do what it wants to And how you move will show the way This is what they can’t take from us You could take my money or the keys to my vehicle They tried it but they couldn’t take nothing So we gone keep it moving till the moment that you see me go   I move like I found out, that we on a countdown Ain’t got a second to waste So if you not contributing, the minimal minimum You best not step in my space And if it’s not feeling right You got to find your vibe Search all you want to But what you must not do Is come interfering with mine Let this groove get into you Ain’t nothing that’s quite the same Let it do what it wants to And how you move will show the way This is what they can’t take from us You could take my money or the keys to my vehicle They tried it but they couldn’t take nothing So we gone keep it moving till the moment that you see me go They say that nothing is certain I would have to disagree The way that this shit gone move ya You won’t be missing a beat Been moving a whole lot Can’t stop and won’t stop We do this infinitely Just give it a minute they’ll see I do say this definitively Let this groove get into you Ain’t nothing that’s quite the same Let it do what it wants to And how you move will show the way This is what they can’t take from us They tried it but they couldn’t take nothing

about

As the brains and the muscle behind The Sleepers Recordz, Ivan Makvel stays busy, having kept a steady stream of street dance-oriented releases flowing into the ears of modern funk connoisseurs internationally. Yet, the majority of these releases have come from other artists, with Makvel's own music taking a back seat while he forged a unique lane for his label. No longer, as he brings you his first full-length in years - A Family Affair.

It's a fitting concept for an artist/producer/talkboxer who has put so much energy into the release of music by others. Many of those who can claim projects on The Sleepers join him, allowing this Family Affair to live up to its name. Mofak blesses the album's title track, a thunderous p-funk inspired opener, while XL Middleton shows up on two songs, dropping raps on "Keep Movin" while alternating between singing and vocoder on the electro boogie cut "Show The Way." On "Get Down," Bougito shows up to share production duties over a funk track sure to become a staple among poppers and lowriders alike. Moniquea sings and raps on the decidedly-left coast "I'm Not Sayin Nothin," while Funkmaster Ozone brings electro vocoder sensibilities to a disco-tinged boogie track on "We Come To Jam."

Temu offers his polished vocal style on one of the album's high points, "Essential Funk," a simultaneous nod to a pandemic-stricken world and a declaration that the party must still continue. Gil Masuda of Toronto's Love Touch Records is featured on the house-inflected "How You Make Me Feel," and fellow LTR artist Maya Killtron lends her unique vocal and violin one-two punch on "About You." Ivan only ventures out fully solo for two songs on the album, "Wild" and the previously-released "I Got Funk" - A move to be expected from an album designed to bring an entire funk family together.
