Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ trio Cookin’ On 3 Burners release their next instalment of scientific sonics with Lab Experiments Vol. 2, boasting eight brand new Burners’ cuts, this sequel release to 2017’s Lab Experiments Vol. 1: Mixin’ will take you on an exciting musical adventure traversing soul, up-tempo boogaloo, cinematic journeys and straight up dirty dance floor funk.
Lab Experiment Vol. 2’s instrumental tracks capture the fiery interplay from the band’s cranking shows across Australia, Europe and the UK – a trio in full flight scorched straight to analogue tape. Drum heavy, “The Jump Off” bursts out of the speakers like a sling shot and is accompanied by a crowd sourced video of B-boys and B-girls from around the globe bringing their moves and representing their city. On a down tempo detour the gritty and cinematic “Howler” is a mysterious beast waiting in the dark, fuzzy guitar tones and swirling organ drenched in a sea of reverb.
With collaborations galore, the album includes the dance floor filler “Warning” featuring rising neo-soul singer Kaiit as well as feature vocals on “The Garden Of Freedom” from The Meltdown’s resident heartbreaker and vocalist Simon Burke. The voice of ‘This Girl’Kylie Auldist features on “One Of The Ones” and Chicago born, Melbourne-based king of suits Fallon Williams lends his gritty vocals to the outfit’s latest single “Force of Nature.”
Since its inception in 1997, Cookin’ On 3 Burners has continuously evolved and branched out, bringing their strong trio sound to collaborations with a variety of artists. The 2016 meeting with French electronic wunderkind Kungs resulted in the Kungs vs Cookin’ On 3 Burners version of their classic soul track ‘This Girl’ which saw substantial chart success worldwide, reaching #1 in Europe, #2 in the UK and was the worlds most Shazamed dance track of 2016.
