Pomo – “Work It Out”

Jeezus I’m such a sucker for Janet Jackson samples.  There’s been a slew of them dropped in great tunes all year round and this new jam from Pomo is no different.  Super funked out borderline house tune that feels like something Dam-Funk or Onra would make and would be a staple in the DJ sets of Cosmo Baker and Mark Ronson IMMEDIATELY. Accompanying all this dazzling dancefloor ready funk is a number of vocal chops of Janet’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You).”  Great use of the vocal in the flow of the tune, even though it’s got to be genuinely challenging to mess up a Janet vocal.  I mean really, this was the 7th mega hit from her Rhythm Nation album.  Who has seven tracks from an album hit Top 5 or higher on Billboard‘s Top 100 anymore?  In any regard, hearing Janet’s impulse in today’s dance music in 2013 is beyond refreshing and this freebie from Pomo and the HW&W Recordings crew might be the best of the bunch.  I know it’s loaded up and ready for constant rotation from me.
