10th Oct 2017
“Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ trio Cookin’ On 3 Burners are packing their swags full of sweet soul and dirty dance floor funk and are celebrating the release of their latest album Lab Experiments Vol. 1: Mixin’ with a series of Soul Happenings across Europe this October.
In true CO3B fashion, these shows set to be all live and full of vibe – with Ivan “Choi” Khatchoyan keeping those drum breaks tighter than a mosquito’s tweeter, Jake Mason making the Hammond swell and scream and Dan West twanging his guitar like a boss. Joining them onstage will be regular vocalist and Lab Experiments feature artist Stella Angelico, whose smokey vocals and dynamic performances have been setting stages ablaze around Australia.
Shane Murphy from Melbourne’s The Daily Review described the CO3B Lab Experiments launch show as “…slick, taut and punchy…” and “…a must see… it feels like we’ve been transported back into a mid-60s Stax soul revue, audience sweating it out on the dance floor…” -high praise indeed!
Lab Experiments is CO3B’s first drop of new material following the smash hit Kungs vs. Cookin on 3 Burners rework of “This Girl”. Here’s what folks are saying about the band’s latest release of 8-tracks, scorched onto analogue tape and made available for your convenience on vinyl, digital and vintage compact disc.
The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC Radio 6 bestowed some funky love for lead single Real Life Baby calling it a ”Wonderful sliceof bright, shimmering soul!” New York City heavyweights Wax Poetics are feeling “… a heavy breakbeat flip of the Metallica classic ‘Enter Sandman’, and an action-packed video to go with it…” and French tastemakers Musiculture described the new CO3B ‘Lab Experiments’ album as ”Timeless soul….torrid heat!”
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 world-wide, reaching #1 in Europe, #2 in the UK and was the worlds most Shazamed dance track of 2016.
