Stepping up, stepping in! Very excited to be launching my own Solid State imprint and series of parties down here in collaboration with La Cheetah Club, drafting in the mighty FUNKINEVEN to kick things off! I’ll be marking the launch with some live acid bizness on the evening, recorded live n direct from the booth and later pressed up onto cassette in the following weeks. News on the first 12” to follow..
Taking centre stage is Apron Records boss man and all round top geezer FUNKINEVEN. First coming to light via Floating Points’ Eglo records in 2009, Funkineven (Steven Julien to his mother) is renowned for his refreshing blend of gritty analog electro, 80’s funk and acid.
Having punched out some of the finest house and techno cuts from the likes of Greg Beato, Brassfoot and Shanti Celeste in recent years (his own debut album ‘Fallen’ was tipped by many as one of the best LP’s of 2016), Steven has also been busy collaborating with the likes of Delroy Edwards, Fatima and most notably, Kyle Hall as FunkinEvil. Rumour has it there’s a fresh batch of goodness on the way v soon…
La Cheetah’s own Wardy & Dom D’Sylva on hand to get the place warmed up right and we’ll be going through till 4am (tbc) to fit it all in!
