After one and a half years of continuing fun & friendship, producers/DJs/compilers Jürgen Drimal & Raimund Flöck decided to create a platform for their “floor-rocking” qualities. With “A Family Affair” they present us with a carefully chosen selection of their funky favourites from past, present and future.
“Apart from having a lot of fun on our package tour gigs” says Jürgen Drimal “we always received a great response from our audiences”. “The chemistry simply seemed to work ... not only for the floor but on a personal level as well” adds Raimund Flöck. After one and a half years of continuing fun & friendship, producers/DJs/compilers Jürgen Drimal & Raimund Flöck decided to create a platform for their “floor – rocking” qualities. With “A Family Affair” they present us with a carefully chosen selection of their funky favourites from past , present and future. Partly unreleased, partly avaliable on 7 or 12 inch, the thirteen tracks from “A Family Affair” represent a batch of the toughest grooves the post-2000 years have yet to offer. Ranging from up to downtempo, the “Affair” selection is held together by an “organic feel” that the featured content seems to share. Disco, Blues, Bossa, Jazz, Funk, Soul, D&B, Trip Hop, Dub, Electronic Jazz and Ambient merge into a pleasantly homogenous musical experience.
A1 Freedom Satellite & Raimund Flöck — Just Relax Yourself [5:18]
Gritty Wah Wah´s, dirty breaks and dub infused basslines blend into a massive nu-funk monster as Raimund Flöck, Jürgen Drimal and Gernot Ebenlechner present their first co-production. Think Norman Whitfield in a deep dub - electro groove and you get the basic emotion.
B1 Darcosan & Alexdrdum — Funk On Pot [6:51]
"Funk on pot" presents us with the long awaited follow up to Darcosans “Vienna Scientists” (COL 492829-1) contribution - and good things certainly come to those who wait. Supported by drummer Alex Deutsch (who already collaborated with such greats as Woody Shaw, Freddie Hubbard, Marc Ribot, Erykah Baduh, Lala Hathaway,...) Darcosan fuses spherical harmonies with abstract drum-loops and discharges a contrasting tension that owes as much to D&B and Dub as to Electro and Funk.
