I have known the crew for some time now. I first met Asad, the label manager who became a very good friend of mine, and with whom i like spending hours sharing ideas, listening music & bubbling. From the time i met him, i knew this guy had a vision. And that’s probably why Funkatech is still strong in the game. He’s a big source of inspiration for me.
The label went from straight breaks to proper club music, in its large sense. You can find electro, dubstep, breakstep and crossover stuff, but always with this top quality forward thinking and futuristic sound.
Far Too Loud had the priviledge to host this 50th release. Far Too Loud is famous for its HEAVY electro/funky/ravy/tecky tunes. « Ready to Stomp » is a four track EP, and it’s probably one of its best.
Personnally, when i DJ i’m more into what NAPT is releasing on their new Red Sugar label, but i always pay close attention to Funkatech release’s: as a producer i think these guys are probably the best electronic musician in the scene. Far Too Loud tunes are not always my thing but damn, it always sounds HUUUGE! Try his tunes on a dancefloor, you’ll see it’s hard to find a track to play straight after (except if u go for another Far Too Loud tune ehehe). And the same things happen with the rest of the crew.
Other Funkatech acts are Specimen A, who’s making severe damages in the dubstep scene, PYRAMID, top quality breakstep duo, Miss Trouble MC (actually touring with Elisa Do Brasil) & brand nu collab James D’Ley.
Cubit has just recorded a mixtape showcasing where Funkatech is and where it is going…. watch out for the Stomp!!!
