Worldwide Premiere // Funkadelic & Soul Clap // Peep This // feat. Nick Monaco, G Koop & Greg Paulus
November 21, 2014
This week’s Premiere comes from two groups united by the funk movement across different generations, coming together for the first time.
In May 2013, after a year of groundwork, Soul Clap flew Dr Funkadelic himself George Clinton to Red Bull Studios in Miama for a three days of recording. Two tracks from the session (‘First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate’ and ‘In Da Kar’) were included in the forthcoming Funkadlic album, while Soul Clap Records will simultaneously release special EFUNK remixes of ‘First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate’ and ‘In Da Kar’. ‘Peep This’ is a bonus cut, which we’re really excited to premiere, featuring P-Funk engineer G Koop on bass, Crew Love family member Greg Paulus on trumpet and Nick Monaco on production.
Still star struck over a year later, Soul Clap had this to say about the project: “‘we’re so honoured to officially release these dancefloor funk jams to the world. Getting Clinton’s blessing and musical participation has legitimized our EFUNK movement and opened a new chapter in the Soul Clap’s sound”. So many names involved and a lot of love and excitement pouring out of the project – it all comes together for some irresistible funk.
The first Funkadelic album in 33 years ‘First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate’ is available for preorder now!
