Phill Most Chill has teamed up with Bristolian beat maker Mr Fantastic for the brand new single, “Super Funk Inc”. This is a great slice of classic hip hop at its funkiest, it’s rare to hear hip hop like this in this day and age. This is a must for any old school head, or anyone who just loves funky beats and on point rhymes. Check out the sound clips HERE and pre-order the 12″ HERE.

 
Talking of Mr Fantastic, if you are in the London area make sure you come down to Amen Brother on March 1st at the Castle, East London. DJ’s Mr Fantastic, LongDistanceDan and Pete Cadden playing the best in funk, psych, soul and hip hop. I’m sure Super Funk Inc will be getting a spin!

Buried Treasure

Buried TreasureBuriedTreasure_7_Label_FinalVisual is the brand new label set up by Diesler and Jung Collective. The first release is a split 7″ from UK funksters the Hugh Turner Quartet and label boss Diesler featuring the vocal talents of Double Yellow.
Dieslers “You’re Not Dead” is a beat driven slice of funk, given an alternative, indie twist from Double Yellows laid back vocals. This will go down a treat in the clubs, and I could even easily imagine this getting air time on 6 Music.
The flip side, “Back To School” is an instrumental journey through modern funk, jazz and soul. Perfect for warming up the dance floor or relaxing to, preferably on a nice sunny day.
Available now on 7″ and 7″ only! Yes, that’s right, vinyl only, no digital. Numbers are limited, so get while you can.
