The Allergies & Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) – ‘I Just Got That Feeling’ video
Off the back of the inescapably addictive funk rattle ‘n’ romp ‘Felony’, The Allergies are out to provide the soundtrack to your summer with ‘Say the Word’. The Bristol duo of Rackabeat and DJ Moneyshot continue their patent blend of fat laced hip-hop and funk for the hip bone, ready and waiting to tear the ring pull off so the party can flood out.
Serial collaborator Andy Cooper of Ugly Duckling – now officially seeking official Allergies citizenship – reaches a new astral plain on ‘I Just Got That Feeling’ , a quieter moment of solace, highlighting The Allergies’ burgeoning versatility, tiptoeing away from the honey-dipped, no-nonsense soul of Marietta Smith, of Smith and The Honey Badgers ; Dynamite MC holding down the uber true skool cool of ‘Hot Sensation’, and the funster Mardi Gras free for all involving The Cuban Brothers that will definitely ‘Let Them Know’.
A fixture on Jalapeno Records since 2015, The Allergies’ all-in party performance has gained Album of the Day status on 6 Music, become a bestseller on the iTunes and Juno hip-hop album charts, and received Tune of the Month gongs in Mixmag. The Allergies have also stopped by shows on Radio 2 with Dermot O’Leary and Radio 4 with Clive Anderson , and headlined the BBC 6 Music festival in their native Bristol; all in addition to an ever energetic European itinerary, and teaming with Dr Syntax (whose dulcet tones are back to affirm ‘I’m On It’), Izo Fitzroy and Uncle Frank of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals .
In tandem with ‘Felony’ flying across springtime airwaves, Rackabeat and Moneyshot helmed a triumphant Trunk of Funk mix for Craig Charles’ celebrated Funk and Soul show in April, getting pulses racing as standard, and whetting listeners’ appetites for album number four. Best believe that when it drops, ‘Say the Word’ will be on everyone’s lips.
