Amoeba Review

05/30/2014

Ten years later, we get the second volume of Light In The Attic's epic Wheedle's Groove compilation of esoteric Seattle soul and funk, and this time it's chock full of essential slices of the deep modern soul and boogie that has become so popular in the interim, thanks to people like Dam-Funk and his Funkmosphere party, and the Numero Group's exceptional Purple Snow box. LITA can claim another success and one that will surely continue to hip the masses to the value of basic consumer electronics and slap-bass in mid-tempo dance-floor-ready soul music. There's never any shortage of quality regional soul comps these days, but Wheedle's Groove Vol. 2 still manages to stand out, if only for the care and level of quality control that the label put into it. Rather than a line being drawn from historical point A to point B, we instead get a map of a broad network of acts that lean both towards the light and towards the underground, towards smooth ambitious disco-and-post-disco and equally towards dark-edged proto-electro funk. Recommended.
