2011 UK Funky Going Forth

What needs to be changed and what needs to stay the same? Having the title of the UK Funky blogger, I felt it only right to take a deeper look. Following analysis, here you’ll find the conclusion…

Brimes – Why Are You Here!?

Delerious ft Pheobe: High Off Your Love

Delerious is a young producer that doesn’t get enough recognition on the scene. With the quality of his music, it has to be wondered why?

Teaming up with Pheobe on this occasion to bring us ‘High Off Your Love’…. Check out the video.

Delerious is definitely one to keep an eye on and showing a little support won’t hurt!

Princess Nyah: Take Control (official video)

It cannot be denied that Nyah has made consistent progressive steps throughout her musical career upholding a steady reputation of grafting hard all the way. Remember the days when Nyah was constantly up and down the country in her tutu declaring that she was on the frontline?? She definitely was…..

Alongside Nyah’s progression she has also shown a great level of maturity within her music and how it is displayed. Have a look at this video for her upcoming release ‘Take Control’, the young lady is surely on FIRE!!

 

Take Control is available on Princess Nyah’s upcoming Take Control EP released on 16th January 2011 via all digital platforms.

March to the Tribal – Official Video

Major Notes is a producer that has been watched closely in the past. Making his own steps into the Funky scene in the Summer/Autumn of 2008, Major Notes has earned himself a reputation of being a respected producer of the movement always making quality music.

Within this production Major Notes has teamed up with Dappa MC, who can usually be found around the cities of Bedford, Milton Keynes, Northampton (to name a few) alongside Twista DJ as seen within the video.

The collaboration cannot be faulted with this track. Dappa as an MC has shown why he is the man with the microphone by applying a catchy lyrical skip to the beat which is effectively just about doing a dance while enjoying oneself in a club.

We showed the behind the scenes footage of the video a month ago and now we see the final cut…..

Major Notes promised us something different as opposed to the usual club shoot, which can be seen as the video shows concept and creativity. Particularly within the scenes of tribal dancers in costume with luminous body paints. These are great!

March to the Tribal is released on 10th January 2011 and can be pre-ordered from here

DJ dubs are also available to order from here
