Title: No Limit / Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot

1. Product Details

Be With presents hens teeth extended cuts of two glorious Breakwater classics - No Limit and Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot. These super-rare Arista promo-only 12 versions from 1978 have never been commercially available until now. Originals have regularly sold for upwards of 400 in the past 10-20 years so you know how vital this is. Breakwaters futuristic boogie-funk glider No Limit is six and a half minutes of slickness on wax. Its almost AOR. Like an infinite masterpiece the chilled opening chords of the intro could go on forever - and they almost do - but when they give way to the power-funk groove the track just slaps. It sounds so fresh today over 40 years on thanks to the smooth smooth mixing of Jimmy Simpson. In no uncertain terms this is a monster written by the great Grey and Hanks. That bassline those keys the horn section... all the ingredients are there. Ahead of its time by a good 3 or 4 years some regard No Limit as the first 80s groove ever recorded in funk/soul history. A neat trick given its year of production. On the flip the six minute version of Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot is an original Philly party jam. A showcase for Breakwaters phenomenal intensity this sounds like Parliaments Flashlight on steroids. Acidic synths bleep and warp blending with triumphant horns in-the-pocket drums and bumping bass to conjure a truly deep funk groove. Laying deep in the cut the salacious vocal delivery only adds to the brilliant sleaze. Breakwater had a sonic aesthetic beamed in from the future and these two tracks are just more proof of that. Remastered and cut loud for devastating dance floor dynamite this vinyl reissue arrives just in time for all those perhaps imagined BBQ Boogie Throwdowns. This is a true modern soul double-sider essential in every way.
