Album of the Week – ‘VS’ by Cookin’ on 3 Burners
‘VS’ by Cookin’ on 3 Burners is Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week.
Off the back of the monster worldwide hit This Girlwith Kungs and Mind Made Up with Lenno, Cookin’ On 3 Burners return with their forthcoming remix album VS.VS. pits six of the Melbourne Soul-Funk outfit’s most popular vocal tunes against some of the electronic world’s hottest talent and has already seen dancefloors, playlists and streaming figures light up. The album will be released March 17 and is available to pre-order now. Next official singleSettle The Score kicks things off with a Tropical Chill vibe from Germany’s Niklas Ibach, whilst Australian club legend Yolanda Be Cool toughens up the Daniel Merriweather-blessed Losin’ Streak in to a chunky 4-4 winner. Stereofunk brings Fallon Williams’ James Brown-esque vocal on Cook It to the fore and keeps most of the original elements for a classic Funk-House makeover, while San Francisco’s Funk Leblanc slick things up with a tasty Disco Re-lick of Push It Up.
In early 2016, the trio teamed up with French house sensation Kungs to give their track This Girl a dancefloor-ready update. In addition to the line-up of remixes, VS. also brings together the six original versions of these CO3B‘s vocal tracks which not only highlight how talented this band has always been, but also makes this album the perfect listen – no matter whether you came to the band from hearing the Kungs remix or whether you always loved their soulful sound. Included are their best-known collaborations, such as Losin’ Streak with Daniel Merriweather and a few more Kylie Auldist star turns on tracks such as Push It Up and Settle The Score.VS. reveals new shades to a group that’s been hard at it for nearly two decades.
