The message is simple, feel the groove and get into it! From James Brown and Funkadelic to Kool and the Gang and the Fatback Band, it's all about the groove and 'that' sound. In an age where digital technology is fast becoming king, Funkshone offer you a slice of yesterday for tomorrow. So turn it on, turn it up and get down to the deep funk sound.
The new contenders for the "Best Funk Band" in the UK drop a stunning debut album, chock full of drum breaks and killer rhythms.
After a number of stunning 7"s and two sold out shows at The Jazz Cafe, Funkshone are more than ready to drop their debut album - Here you have a 12 track album that covers the funky four corners of the the world.
Opening up the album is a drumtastic break beat explosion called "Let the drum speak" and oh yes brothers and sisters let them scream the roof off. Accompied by Tom Mcload on the Baratone who lays down a monster of a groove.
The album also offers you "The Raw", "Deeper love" "Droppin" and "Wired" which all feature the dynamic and superb soulful voice of Natasha Watts. Other new and super funky recordings are "Run For It", "The Strut", two new original funky workouts.
Also included are two BBoy stompers "Hot Wheels the chase"(from The Film Gordens War) and "Panama" (first released by the Roy Porter Sound manchine band). Both are super heavy weight versions ready to blow up!
