Every so often , a band or an artist crosses my path who have an extraordinary quality , and their music really resonates with me. Sometimes it’ll just be one track. Other times it’ll be a few tracks , but its a rare thing to find , in this case , a band , or to be precise , a duo , who make some of the most stunning electronic music I’ve heard in years , and on a consistent basis.
I’m talking about Funckarma , otherwise known as brothers Roel and Don Funcken.
What they do is truly exceptional , in that they make a broad eclectic and very original brand of electronica that will amaze you with its complexity , and make your jaw hit the floor with beats that sound solid like a panzer tank….robust and incased in kevlar , with the most ear-boggling groove that will have you grinning from ear to ear.
True artists are multi-dimensional , never able to sit still because they bleed creativity, and its what powers them and motivates them , whether its working on multiple projects of their own , or collabs with a diverse array of other artists , or photography , or artwork.
These guys never seem to stop. Not only does their music sound sonically astonishing ( I thought I was getting somewhere until I heard Funckarma , and I was stunned at the quality ) , but they seem to do it effortlessly , and are some of the most prolific artists out there.
If you haven’t yet heard Funckarma , and you have an interest in electronic music , you are seriously missing out , and I would strongly urge you to check out what they do. You won’t be disappointed.
