ELECTRO FUNK CLASSIC One Way were a funk and soul outfit from Detroit who amounted to pretty much fuck-all. They did have some success with this cool electro-funk number “Cutie Pie” which has been dutifully tweaked up by Cold Duck and is available for download with a whole stack of other edits from his Soundcloud.
You would have thought that yellow suits and pair of midget vocalists was a recipe for succes.
