Steppers Song Of The Day]
Riding High By Faze O #stepperssongoftheday Faze-O
were a late 1970s funk group produced by Clarence Satchell of the
Ohio Players, and were the group's front band during many live
A steppers classic with a sound that never gets old!
Faze-O will be forever remembered for their massive cut "Riding
High" a stretched out slow funk jam that has amazing keyboards,
floating guitars, and a super-dope groove that's stayed fresh from the
moment it was first set to wax back in 1977!
This album's the group's first, and best - and it's a
really wonderful record that blends together funky fusion and heavy soul
filled with killer cuts arranged by the Ohio Players, and with
lots of great keyboards by the group! Includes, of course, the hit "Riding
High" — plus "Toe Jam" and "Funky Reputation."
This group was produced by the Ohio Players and this album by
these Midwest funkers have all the earmarks of an Ohio Players
production: deep and heavy drums and fills, funky ass bass, familiar
horn lines, burbling keyboards, clavinets, and synths, and funky vocals.
The track that gets the most attention from this album is
"Riding High", an all time funk bomb! There wasn't a time back in
the late 70's that you did not hear this cut on the radio or at one of
your relatives or friends houses, especially at a late night party.
This is a real mid-tempo smooth ride all the way until the end of the
song. 2 songs on the album deserve special attention: the throbbing
bass/synth funk of "Funky Reputation", a blazing funk jam that
you just have to blast out of your speakers on a hot Saturday afternoon,
and also "Get Some Booty"(!) (yes, that is the title of
this short,3 minute track! don't worry, nothin' nasty, just a fast paced
funk frenzy with much emphasis on getting the bootay on the dance
Other songs follow in the Ohio Players style, but these 5 guys make a
good funky sound all on their own.
The song was sampled many times by many artists especially from the late
80's to the mid - 90's take a look at this list on
