After a series of funk and jazz flavored singles and production credits for the likes of Large Professor or Diamond D, The Funk League, aka Hugo and the Soulbrother Suspect, is now ready to spread more groove with the release of their album, Funky As Usual.
The release featured some tight up-tempo rhythm as well as cold chilling boom bap tracks with swinging sleigh bells, establishing their sound identity, courtesy of that vintage SP1200 sound, analog equipment and precise turntable wizardry.
Same goes for the mic duties, handled by no less than Large Pro, Diamond, Sadat X, Gift of Gab from Blackalicious, but also underground favorites Ugly Duckling, Abdominal, or even songstress Kylie Auldist from Aussie funk sensation, The Bamboos, on an all-acoustic acid jazz track performed and co-composed by label mates, The Joyous Juice.
Released November 14th in France and late January 2012 in all world. Available on 2LPs, CD & Digital.
