The Funk Ark draws on influences from African and Latin funk/dance music of the 60s and 70s and the result is a mix of afrobeat and big band funk.
Using African rhythms and Cuban music, Latin freestyle of 1980s NYC and Miami, and the synth-heavy beats of dance ﬂoors across the globe, Chico Mann has emerged to be one of the new, vibrant styles of today.
Federico Aubele returns to acoustic guitar, heavy rhythms and dub atmospherics for his fourth studio album, Berlin 13, which pulls from the transformation Aubele experienced in his time living in Berlin, a city strongly associated with electronic music.
ESL Music’s URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist Alex Gimeno. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, go go, and sleazy glam rock.
