Michael Wheatley: Residual Current Device   UP
 


Details & Listen

Residual Current Device is the latest original release by Michael Wheatley. The EP is a neat little package of six songs spanning a wide variety of genres but laced with Michael’s trademark funk and love of groove-based music. The EP was the result of having some unfinished tracks left over from Michael’s last full album Universal Joint and deciding to divert his extra creative juice toward them. From falsetto powered disco rock anthems like 'You Got Em' to deep underwater dub like 'Waitin On A Wave' the result is vibrant, catchy, coloured with mood and lit with lyrical inspirations.

Fatback 4Way: Generate Some Action   UP
 


Details & Listen

Fatback 4Way is an ElectroBoogie machine from Sydney, Australia, pumping out phundamental funk, super-rare groove and retroactive songcraft.

Confection: Confection   UP
 


Details & Listen

Confection are Sydney based duo Juanita Tippins and Josh Beagley. Confection set out to create classic funksoul anthems like those of yesteryear - old school synth and slap-bass driven groovers and slowjams, the sort of songs that sound great on the radio and phat on the dancefloor, with big choruses and sinewy elastic rhythms. Compounding an encyclopaedic knowledge of Jam and Lewis-produced records with a whole new bag of natural born sticky sweet funk, Confection are here and ready to flick the sugar switch. Delish. onestopfunkshop
