Slam Dunk Da Hyper-Funk

A few days ago the MP3 of hyper-funk’s new single bass-life wafted in my direction and this infectious hymn to the clubbing generation has been on frequent rotation ever since, with its old-school house groove and dynamic vocal by singer Mei Mei. We’re also digging the funky video which was made by the multi-talented band themselves, lush and artfully produced as it is and full of sultry clubland stylings along with tricksy animation. We especially liked the DJ stained-glass window…

But who are hyper-funk? After a bit of digging around, I discovered that producer and co-writer Scott Cooper has previous UK Garage and Broken-Beat releases on Fat Cat, Nuphonic and Sonar Collektiv as ‘The Northerner’. Now teamed up with vocalist and co-writer Mei Mei, their aim is to create new old-school classics moving between soul, house and disco with great re-mix potential. The track also features vocals from London-based singer-songwriter Graeme Aymer aka ‘mawgadawg’.
