Funk Road • Mutiny • Catbone Records • Producer: Jerome “Bigfoot” Brailey • Score: 8 out of 10
This, Jerome “Bigfoot” Brailey’s first release under the moniker Mutiny in 13 years, captures him traversing a dizzying array of funk-related styles, per usual. One track sounds like a misplaced P-Funk gem, another an old-school hip-hop joint from an alternate dimension. There’s a tune that explores the funky side of blues, while the wildest composition serves up a dance-themed homage to crunk. While certain songs hit harder than others and the compilation as a whole falls short of classic status, the variety makes for one highway you’ll want to continue driving down long after you’ve passed your exit.
