Last but not least our three guest from California:
XL has released volumes of work, physical copies of which are reverred and treasured the world over.
His sound embodies the party feel, bringing music back to where it was before it found its way into upscale clubs, while at the same time mixing it with a futuristic brand of funk inspired by legends such as George Clinton, Roger Troutman, & Cameo, not to mention hip hop funksters like Battlecat & DJ Quik.
He evolved from his beginnings as a hip hop artist to a full-fledged modern funk musician, educated by the music he once sampled in the course of creating rap beats.
At an XL show, you might find him singing notes through a vocoder, rapping, or shredding solos on a shoulder synth (more colloquially known as a "keytar").
His Lp "Tap Water" ( MoFunk Records) was released in 2015 to critical acclaim.
Moniquea is a much sought after Singer and Songwriter from Indiana but was raised in California where she has since performed at nearly every reputable venue in LA – The Whisky, The Roxy, Viper Room, Cinespace, The Echo, a variety of festivals and has been a highlighted performer at Modern Funk Fests in San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
After independently releasing her self-titled debut in 2011, Moniquea partnered with producer XL and released the album Yes No Maybe in 2014. Here she delivers modern funk, as refracted through the lens of her early influences of 70's Soul and 80's Boogie.
What Moniquea creates is not ‘pastiche’ nor ‘retro,’ but a faithful reinterpretation of sounds that came from the dawn of the synth, perfectly balanced with one eye focused squarely on the future.
Eddie Funkster is a Californian Dj (Funk Freaks / Funkmosphere),Producer and owner of MoFunk Records who is touring with our headliners and will be third man on stage.
Eddie & XL will be releasing theyre joint Lp on 12.august.2016,
