Caspa Codina – Get Your Motor Started

A low-slung piece of electro funk

Gabriel Olegavich is the production talent behind the likes of Lady Sovereign and Spektrum but as Caspa Codina he’s making his own music.

Get Your Motor Started is a low-slung piece of electro funk that crams the lyrics with car metaphors like a charity-sponsored how many people can you fit in a Mini event. But this overcrowding doesn’t extend to the music as he makes minimal use of a super-clean guitar line and smart bass. There’s an odd interval of Latin beats and a Looney Tunes-style tangent but the groove kicks back in again. Think Jon Spencer covering Bowie’s Fashion.
