Eloquently produced, Jazz Dust showcases Funky DL's eclectic creativity in producing some of the finest instrumental albums. In offering of a less polished sheen to the sound, the dust and crackles are deliberate and help retain the raw and authentic feel of Jazz and Hip-Hop.
This longer form video features all four tracks from the recent The Lilac Pack EP. Bronx born MC Vsteeze and the UK's prolific Funky DL teamed up for a jazzy easy listening offering with a complementary smattering deft vocals. These two talents seem perfectly paired.
Bronx raised artist Vsteeze and Hip Hop producer Funky DL instantly formed a creative connection having met online in September of 2020. Within weeks, the two recorded and mastered a 4-track EP.
Hip-hop and jazz have made a synonymous marriage in music since the late 1980s and the two have helped bridge the gap of not only generations of music lovers, but also tastes. Once in a while, projects like the late Guru's Jazzmatazz come along and give us an indepth reminder of this powerful pairing of the genres.
Funky DL is a long time stalwart of the UK Hip Hop scene. He has just reached out to his fans to let them know about his innovative Kickstarter campaign for his new album which is set to be entitled "Cut From The Illest Cloth". Knowing how Funky DL gets down this will of course be jazzy and fresh, fused with his own style of production and vocal delivery.
Dynametrix started of as Funky Force in 1985 with just two members Ace Shazamme (Shane Ryan) and Master Best (Best Igbenyemi - also known as The Phantom) they were regular visitors when Tim Westwood used to play at Wormwood Scrubs in West London in the UK and during that period sometimes rocked the mic (The Art of MCing), they could also be seen at the Notting Hill Carnival in the early 90s and playing small clubs and town halls on sound systems long before their first deal.
Funky DL returns with his new project, the next in his "Funky DL samples" series. Previously, he took on the works of Amy Winehouse (links below), but this time it's the magical audio of Motown legend Stevie Wonder that DL crafts his hip-hop chemistry with. This all new FREE and downloadable EP is entitled "Sometimes I Have To Wonder" and sees DL flippin' such classics as Stevie's "My Cherie Amour" (1969), "He's Misstra Know-It-All" (1974), "Thank You Love" (1966) and "Please Don't Go" (1974).
