Press Release :
Twelve Morlocks Of The Real Beat! After 2004 (!) we are finally going to introduce the 5th chapter from The New Testament of Funk series, including no less than 8 unreleased tracks and 3 titles which have previously just been available on limited vinyl pressings. Therefore, this New Testament Of Funk compilation is by far the most exclusive, tricky und freestyle episode yet to date! High priests from Basel, Berlin, Bristol, Brooklyn, Doordrecht, Madrid, Münster and Stockholm are preaching testamentary messages in all varietes of music for the modern believer: a wide mashed network from Hammond-Funk, easygoing Hip Hop, Vocal Drum'n'Bass and of course loaded with Party-Breaks!

Fun is written BIG letters, yes praise these spirit(s)! It's scratching, cracking, cooking - no liveless digital patterns, rather protectionists of Roots-Music, you can almost smell the sweat originated from the handicraft work in these sessions. And The New testament Of Funk proves that the real beat does not only deal with 60's-Soul - it's all about the groove, 1-2-3-4 and especially those breaks and odds in between, the shaking leg, the counterdraft to Lounge as a musical concept. If Lounge would be the dawn of the day, the New Testament is the brights sunshine! And as always the aim has got be: " The genre is, to break the genre!" The New Testament Chapter 5 is worth a sin - full of reminiscences and quotations to smoky jazzcellars, chamber music, piano-bars, true crooners, swingers, briefly: Music in OUR message!

Heard Cabaret (Cartoonfish Remix) on Fbi FM Sydney, Australia and thought yeah, these cats are cool. Horns, slightly detached female voice. Very groovy, and the Hammond just want to make the average dude grab a martini and don velour. Shag on the carpet doll!
