Despite the fact that some critics claim that UK Funky is a declining, or possibly even an extinct genre, there are definitely still a number of producers within the scene who continue to fly the flag well, whilst also churning out regular first class productions. In particular Funkystepz are notable for doing exactly this, considering their latest smashes on both Hyperdub and also their own imprint F.L.Y.
Set for release this coming Monday on their F.L.Y. label is the highly anticipated 'Royal Rumble' EP containing 4 fantastic tracks that have been getting a regular hammering by various DJs on Rinse FM, 1Xtra, Kiss 100, Deja Vu and many more.
Personally I think that the title track 'Royal Rumble' stands out the most for me on this EP. According to the press release; "The guttural basslines work perfectly in tandem with the percussive beat pattern and temperamental melodies, making it one unpredictable trip full of twists and turns that make for a rough ride throughout."
The 'Royal Rumble' EP is out in all good digital outlets this Monday.
