Funktastic Players Exclusive Interview

 



Tell us about the track "Daydreaming" and what gave inspiration for this song?
Daydreaming was written by my production partner Kevin Croom some years ago. I was looking for a tune to complete the “Fire” CD. He called me and told me he had this old tune that could work. At first I didn’t want to do the song because it seemed out of place but I absolutely fell in love with the song. So we decided to re-record the song from scratch and put the Funktastic flare on it.

We love the cover art for daydreaming and definitely loved the concept! Who is the graphic artist for your music?
I am the graphic artist for everything we do. I design all the cover art, produce all the videos and create all promotional materials for our work. Everything you see and hear is done in house.

What type of instruments were used on the track Daydreaming and who played them?
Kevin Croom played all keyboard parts. I programmed the drums and percussion. I arranged the horn section parts. The bass was played by both of us. The lead sax was played by Marcus H Mitchell.

We featured you before, could you tell us some of your recent progress since we last spoke?
Our goal was to expand our coverage, to reach more people and to cultivate new fans. I think we are well on our way of doing that. We’ve been picked up by radio stations, blogs and magazines all over the world and we’re still reaching for more! We’ve also had success with our DJ mixes. These dance mixes allow you to hear our music in a different light.

Are you guys planning on touring this year?
No, but if someone wants to offer us a boatload of money to perform I would consider it.

So tell us about the track "Moody Melody"
Moody Melody is an interesting song in that both Kevin and I had different chord ideas that we blended together to make one song. I really liked how it turned out and is a good example of how we work together. Kevin and I both played keys on this one, I played the bass and programmed the drums and Marcus played sax once again.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
