Running Hot
(Independent)
Formerly of Dr. Yellow Fever, Kamran Abdi expands his musical palate on Running Hot, a collection of tunes made to get dance floors moving everywhere. Recalling elements of Jamiroquai, Prince and Stevie Wonder, Dr. Dfunkt is like nothing else being produced on the east coast. Members of local stalwarts Jimmy Swift Band and Down with the Butterfly add to the tight, lean musicianship made for a party. There’s something here for anyone looking for a good time, incorporating elements of rock, ’70s funk and soul, as well as flourishes of electronica—with the title track as a perfect example of how to make music that’s as fun as it is exciting.
