Funckarma - dubstoned EP1 *out now*,
[HPLL027] Funckarma - Dubstoned EP1
5 track EP of evil instrumental hip hop with a hefty dubstep influence, pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl.
Made up of the two Dutch brothers, Don and Roel Funcken, Funckarmas’ first EP appeared in 1999 on the Djak-Up Bitch (DUB) label. Since then they have unleashed a fury of releases on labels from Neo Ouija, n5MD, U-Cover, to Hymen, not including their work under other guises such as Cane, Quench, and their hip hop project with a trio of US MC’s under the name Shadow Huntaz on Skam records.
Their signature bass-driven precision sound compositions, encompassing influences from hip hop, jazz, reggae, dub, soul and all forms of electronic music, are carefully crafted and constructed into tight rhythmic forces with a keen ear for texture and structure.
With the dubstep virus infecting all forms of electronic music, it was a natural evolution for the Funcken brothers to take strands of the meme and splice it to the dna of their own productions, creating a mutant hybrid of lurching instrumental hip hop with floor shaking bass and super punchy intricate razor sharp rhythms.
Release date for shops is 7th July.
Now available to buy 12" or 320kbps mp3 downloads from:
"It’s an evil, lurching, jagged piece of science fictional noise that shoves about eight different kinds of music into a centrifuge in order to spit out a life form configured for life in the last city on earth when the next ice age comes. Or something. Any fifteen second stretch of any one of the five tracks can include hip hop, crackle, 1983 videogame noises, industrial grind and dubstep mutations. It evokes the image of mad scientists doing live mixing with DNA. I like it." Warren Ellis
"We recently heard its five tracks and can confirm that the Funcken brothers have produced a cracking EP, imagine the Funckarma of old with their crunchy electronic wall of sound styled beats, abstract but accessible electronic rhythms and then throw some Dubstep influences into the mix." Future Plastik
"Funckarma take a floor-rattling plunge into dubstep on their latest EP and the fit sounds pretty much near-perfect. The brothers' personalized take on instrumental hip-hop has always exemplified a love for all things dubby and bass-heavy so the dubstep-Funckarma hookup is a marriage made in you-know-where. Opener “Stub Dane” douses its blazing slow-funk with flaming synth flares, while “Woodface” serves up a low-slung, slip-sliding shuffle that finds time for a brief side-trip to a parallel galaxy. “Senservice” couples trademark warble and wobble with beats so sharp they could slice a body in two, as does the rather acidy “Flux Leav.” textura.org
