Superstatic – Turkuaz
Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves. The Brooklyn-based band funks….

Another Place – Lehmanns Brothers
The Lehmanns Brothers get their audiences to their feet with their sexy sound! Their groove combines jazzy-chords together with elements of Hip-Hop, Neo-Souls, and House. The Lehmanns Brothers are a prime example of how a contemporary interpretation of Jazz, Funk and Afrobeat can be mixed together. Their concerts are rousing, full of joy and positive energy. The latest EP “Another Place” is a journey through several styles.

Supercool – Spice
German funk group from Hanover active 1993 to 2003. The band had already given several concerts, among others as support act of Maceo Parker (Lord have mercy, what a fonkey band!) and at the MTV European Music Awards! From “Vario Bel Air” 1996.

Apollo – St. Paul & The Broken Bones
An American eight-piece soul band based in Birmingham, Alabama, United States, that formed in 2012. The band is composed of Paul Janeway (vocals), Browan Lollar (guitar), Jesse Phillips (bass), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keys), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Amari Ansari (saxophone), and Chad Fisher (trombone).

Glitter & Gold – Fatcat
Fatcat is an eight-piece funk band from Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, which was founded in 2013 by music students from the Jazz & Rock Schulen Freiburg. Even before the actual band was founded, there was an instrumental formation under the name Project Mayhem. The single “Glitter & Gold” was released in October 2016.

Good Thing Guaranteed – The Ashton Jones Project
Ashton Jones is one of the UK’s most talented funk, soul vocalists and songwriters, rapidly becoming known for his vibrant and dynamic live performances. Bringing a whole host of incredible musicians with him, Ashton Jones seems to have only one mission: to create soulfully funky music fit for the 21st Century. And, if current credits are anything to go by – which include support slots with Shalamar and Incognito as well as appearances at Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Stanky – Ripe
Ripe is happy to oblige. The Boston-based band (once a seven-piece, now a quintet augmented with a touring trumpeter) blends the sounds of ‘70s funk and soul with a little ‘80s blue-eyed soul and a little rock n’ roll strut to form a sound that’s sure to get toes tapping and hips swaying.

Fat Boys in the Gym of Love – Woody and Jeremy
Woody & Jeremy is the band. Strange Satisfaction is the album title. There’s melody. There’s imagery. There’s juice. There are bass lines. Fans of the band Vulfpeck will be familiar with Woody as a composer and performer, but this is the first time he takes on, along with Jeremy, the role of a producer as well, shepherding the songs from their initial conception through to their final mix and master.

On m’attend là-bas – Véronique Sanson
The first thing that comes to mind when evoking French singer/songwriter Véronique Sanson is her voice. A warm, passionate, soothing voice, both uplifting and deep, coupled with fine piano playing, a combination that summons comparison with the likes of Carole King, Laura Nyro, or Janis Ian. Yet even though she was immensely talented and encountered wide success both inside and outside of France, she revealed herself best under the influence of the ones she loved and admired.

Freedom (Fernan Dust Funky Remix) – Jimi Hendrix
After the massive success of Fernan Dust’s remixes, he returns with this funky version of Jimi’s Freedom. Acoustic drums, electric guitars, pianos and organs turn the Hendrix’s classic into a monster club track with a 70’s acoustic vibe. Get the free download.

Awooga – Five Alarm Funk
The Vancouver-based band is eight men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on six national tours. And this vehicle isn’t about to slow down.
