Post subject:  Under Pressure Recs & The Funktastics Are Back !!!

Under Pressure Records & The Funktastics are back.

The label was created in 2001 and came with tracks and remixes from Stakka & Skynet, Dj Skinny Aka Nu Balance, Dj Friction, Nitrox & Lynx to name a few…2012 is the re-born and the label will now offer Bass Music / Dubstep / D&B / Hip-Hop / House / Uk Funky...


Funktastics are no newcomer in the jungle / drum and bass bizness. Hailing from France, the group comprise Hugabass (founder of legendary parisian parties I Love Jungle and Jungle Juice), C-Nine and jungle pioneer DJ Science. They've already had a stride of underground hits on reknowned labels such as Good Looking, Shogun Audio and Spin recordings. After a brief hiatus honing their studio skills, they're finally back in the game with a punchier and more polished sound ! Marrying their infinite love for funk, electro and big bad dancefloor bass, their new productions also opened up to a wider range of bpm's as their upcoming "Soultown EP" on french label Under Pressure Records attests, notably with 2step and dubstep influenced tracks.

Udpr 011 - The Funktastics - Soultwon EP / Release Date 07.05.12

That's right, after a brief hiatus honing their studio skills, the Parisian trio is bringing the heat again !
Starting with the EP title, Soultown, you know the funk is on ! With pitched up soul vocals, old school jungle breaks, irie piano riffs and relentless jumpin bass, the track is all about the funk ! Ever changing from bar to bar, Soultown is a pure musical journey with a grimey bass twist for playaz and ladies alike !
Second drum and bass track on the EP is Friday's Child ! A catchy swedish piano riff intro, big disco stabs, spacey strings and mellow guitar loops all make for a big moody roller. Liquid funk at its best.
The Friday's Child -dub2step remix- is a totally different affair that comes out as a jumpy dubstep/2step track with a dub westcoast flavor if such thing exists ! Once again it offers plenty of switches for a very dubbed out trip and a soulful breakdown to die for !
Finally "The Ghetto is a Jungle" rounds the Soultown EP with a bang. Starting with an infamous jazz loop "à la Tribe Called Quest", the rolling beats, oldschool ragga calls and herbie hancock style chords all make for a perfect summer vibe. Cherry on the cake being the half step breakdown that completes this already good dj tool and makes for a perfect piece of aural pleasure.
