Funk From the Trunk – A BASEMENT FREAKS fan review . . .
If You have been paying any attention to the word of Funky Break Beats in these last few years, than You have no doubt heard of Basement Freaks.
And after more than 10 years of crowd pleasing funky releases, while rocking parties all over the world from the Canadian Rockies at Shambala all the way down to Brazil, George Fotiadis – the man behindthe distinctive Basement Freak Sound – is ready to release his third full length album; Funk from the Trunk an album that will simply blow your ears off.
It would be much easier to simply press play and let you feel it more so than write about it.
You would immediately feel an unstoppable urge to dance.
It will start from your fingers, tapping gently on the table. It will move down do your feet and before You know You will be having a dance party, by yourself, with friends, with strangers, your cat, and even the neighbour you didn’t like so much – or at least till Funk from the Trunk was released.
It’s sort of like that wine that is so good that You don’t need to know wines to know it’s good, your taste buds will tell You, and in this case your ears will – and they will ask for more.
So What makes Funk from the Trunk a special Album?
This album is not just about funk, and it’s not just for funk music lovers: it’s about music, and the power that music has in making You feel Happy.
Some things You just can’t explain: That’s George’s Talent for You. He shares what he loves the most, with his style, his distinctive Bass Lines, and his love for what he does.
He mixes in a way that is new and old at the same time, that would please a confused James Brown would he have the chance to listen to Funk from the Trunk, just as much as the present-day-every-night crowd-goers from Europe all the Way to North America.
And that’s because The album is not just made of Funky Bass Lines, and sexy Break Beats.
It’s organic as much as it is electronic – jam packed with live instrument recording (from the epic Harmonica in “a Blues Thing” to the sweet sounds of the funky flute in “The Calling”), Funk from the Trunk is an album for everybody and that everybody will love, understand, listen and be seduced by.
And if George’s talent is not enough, if You need a bit more to understand the reason Why You wont be able to press stop on this record, there are plenty of reasons to put You at ease.
It features collaborations with talented artists of the likes of Mc Rayna Mustafa Akbar of Nappy Riddem, and and it is all brilliantly brought together by the “Hardest Working man in Funk”, and his endless passion:
Thanks Man, this is a brilliant record that I can’t wait to add to my collection.
