Cannily playing on the fact that “fanny” means something rather different in Britain, NYC songwriters and producers Matt Goias and Fancy have teamed up with three young girls from Brooklyn to deliver a perky selection of electro-rap that’s as instantly addictive as it is disposable. Recalling the old-school likes of Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam and (especially) Mantronix, Fannypack deliver booty-bouncing, bass-heavy, feverishly scratched thrills which may be cheap but certainly deliver. Standouts are the hyperactive title track and comic single “Cameltoe”, on which the girls discuss the peculiarly female phenomenon of what they call the “frontal wedgie”. Formulaic, perhaps, but damn funky.
