Track listing

Lexplosion II - Lexsoul Dancemachine

The 8-track LP “Lexplosion II” provides fire power for the dancefloor with DJ-friendly, extended rhythm tracks. This is the third album by the flagship of Estonian boogie, disco and funk – Lexsoul Dancemachine. The 6-piece groove band took a fresh approach here, drawing inspiration from house and nu jazz. LSDM débuted with the street-funk LP “Deus Lex Machina” (2015), followed by the latin-jazz, disco LP “Sunny Holiday in Lexico” (2018). From these “Beef Grinder” and “Coconuts” have given the crew continual radio love from BBC and stations all over Europe. Evident from their UK-tour, Pori Jazz and Imagina Funk live shows, there’s also no question that LSDM is a superb live band. Now, the essence of the Dancemachine has been captured on tape better than ever on “Lexplosion II” – a Solid Gold Sound Production recording.
First time ever, Lexsoul Dancemachine invites international guests: the rubber-wristed guitar icon Cory Wong from US, and the Brazilian percussion maestro Luiz Black who’s toured with James Brown and worked with the likes of Tim Maia, Joao Donato and Nicole Willis. “Carambola Jelly” has gotten the most love from DJs; “Nu Reality” has received multiple plays on BBC 6 and other singles “Entertainment” and “Money (feat. Cory Wong)” are getting regular airplay all over Europe.
The record is out via Funk Embassy Records on vinyl and CD, and includes originally painted artwork by Estookin. She took on the task to paint multiple portraits of each band member and visualize the volcano you see on the 180g vinyl cover. The cardboard jakebox CD includes a poster, and is also graced by her painting that draws from the ’80s photorealistic movie art. It opens up to form a 3D volcano!
“The heart of soul and funk lovers will be taken by storm as well as those in the jazz cosmos. LSDM is all about groove, groove, groove!” Michael Arens — Soultrainonline.de “Always pleased to hear from Estonia’s finest funkers! They got a sound which is totally unique to them – bursts with energy.” Craig Charles — Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, BBC “Return of the six-headed Estonian groove monster, ploughing an eighties funky furrow.” Tony — Monkeyboxing.com “Amazing collaborators on this one – Cory Wong from Vulfpeck and Luiz Black who’s toured with James Brown who, as we now, didn’t accept anything except brilliant musicians in his band” Siim Nestor — Eesti Ekspress
