It’s playlist time on White Noise, where we look deep into our vaults and come up with a fresh selection of tunes, old or new, for your weekend listening.
For the inaugural 10 Cuts we’re looking at musicians bringing funk into the 21st century, a lot of them involved with American labels People’s Potential Unlimited and Omega Supreme. These artists take the classic genre’s syrupy bass riffs and emphasis on the offbeats and modernise them, replacing vocals with virtuosic synth jams and crunchy drum machines. Here’s ten of the best.
Sven Atterton – The Cove
Benedek – Breeze
Jex Opolis – DZE
Tryezz – Sitting Back Sidewayz
Rhythm Based Lovers – Boogie Vision
Moon B – Green Sky
Psychic Mirrors – Charlene
First Touch – Beweg Dein Körper
Kyle Hall – Dervenen
Dam-Funk – Hood Pass Intact
