VMvsic: SPF 5000 – Make Love To Me

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]my Douglas has done much to warrant digital ink on this site, from belting out the blues rock with Feints to calling the living members of Queen a bunch of “sackless twats.” But life comes full circle as we return to the thing that first drew us to Douglas sometime in the last few years, and that’s her Somerville electro-funk trio SPF 5000. While Boston dance floors are no stranger to the electric pulse of SPF 5000′s raunchy post-disco, the trio has also been turning heads and shaking asses in the New York club scene. And now one of the Dirty Apple’s beacons of underground nightlife has tapped Douglas and crew to bring the beat global. SPF 5000 is the first act to sign to Nicky Digital’s new record label, Knight Time Records, and this month dropped their first rump-rumbler single “Make Love To Me”. The track has Douglas’ signature bedroom howl, but also showcases the slick dance production of Rob Phillips and has Daymeyn Gantt’s “get down” fingerprints all over it, a mix of freestyle and electro and 103.5 KTU FM. SPF 5000 plays the pill in Boston on November 11.

The three bass-heads from Boston’s hip Somerville neighborhood came seemingly out of nowhere and immediately caught the attention of Dance Labels, DJ’s, Bloggers and most importantly Fans. SPF 5000’s unique brand of Scuzzy Pop borrows influences from Classic Funk, House, Disco, Electro and Hip Hop. They raise the bar for electronic music, breaking down the boundaries between EDM purists, and Pop Audiences.
