Funk The System! The recipe is simple: Dig deep, listen to your heart, record everything you got on a dusty old desktop computer, leave it to
simmer for the time of a pandemic, and if it’s still fresh, serve it up on the finest plate of black wax!
This collaboration started in D?sseldorf in the year 2018. Locked up for a week in the Flanger Studios, Wolf M?ller and Credit 00 recorded everything: from the jaw harp to smartphone apps, chopping up GDR Jazz breaks and squeezing the Funk out of every synthesizer and drum machine at hand.
You will hear the open mindedness towards all sorts of musicalinfluences from the first note. Each of the five tracks showcases a wild mix of flavours: Disco Reggae, B-Girl Breakbeats, Protest Folk, Subway Funk, Tabla Rhythms, you name it… they’ll take it and shake it! It is obvious these two got sonically socialized and educated by the multiculturalism of Hip-Hop in their early days.
