Primary One – Hold Me Down

Total genius

Primary 1 is Joe Flory, a 21-year old musical maestro who can play a range of instruments, but with the good fortune to be a right funky fucker as well.

His debut single is a thrilling encompassment of all great funk and disco from Ike Turner, Parliament and Chic, through Outkast, Amp Fiddler and the retro electro of Chromeo. The bass line squelches like mud from Bootsy Collins’s platform shoes, the guitar riff is tighter than Niles Roger’s braids and the vocals are like an English Amp Fiddler. Total genius and comes with a brilliantly messy Yuksek remix.
