gadogry This album puts a smile on my face every time I listen to it, for reasons I can't really explain. Favorite track: I Caught The Sun.



Press Release:

The Bastard is back! & this time he’s serving up some glitch-infused, funk-flavoured treats for your delectation.

Brainfunk draws its sound & inspiration from Kingbastard fusing his unique brand of Electronica with the psychedelic, colourful stylings of smoky 70's funk records and their hypnotic, kaleidoscopic sounds. However, don't be fooled into thinking this is a ‘sample-driven’ work. The riffs & hooks found adorning these tracks are originals, written, performed & recorded by the bastard himself. (Ok, apart from the narration on track 3;)

Brainfunk showcases Kingbastard’s penchant for melody, riffs & rhythm. The six tracks are an eclectic, funkadelic brew of multi-instrumental, home-grown sounds & arrangements.

‘Brainstorm’ kicks off proceedings with a brooding atmospheric intro and evolving, intertwining melodies, underscored with progressive percussion; the track crescendos with aplomb & is rounded off with an irresistibly catchy funk-glitch coda.
‘I Caught the Sun’ is sun-drenched lo-fi that shimmers & sparkles, glitches & glistens, before KB’s playful side is fully exposed on the infectious & strangely informative ‘KingBee’s Waggle Dance’.
‘The Sunshine Skank’ fuses funk & glitch & is best served hot on a dub-plate, whilst ‘Out To Lunch’ kicks-back, takes a break & mellows the mood for the final track, the superb ‘You Float My Boat’, a slice of laid-back, smoky funk, with Kingbastard’s deft production techniques, musicianship & vocal skills on show.

Brainfunk continues Kingbastard’s stellar & diverse output on Herb Recordings & once again shows he transcends classification, refusing to be pigeonholed.

Track Name: You Float My Boat
You Float My Boat...

We're all in the same boat
It's a good analogy
Some of us are sinking
Others are lost at sea
Some ride on the crest of a wave
Others they just float
(but) We're in this together
All in the same boat

You Float My Boat...
