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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
