Press Release:

You can do things the easy way. You can do things the hard way. Or you can do things the Stoneway…

We recommend the latter. Far more fulfilling than the other choices. And a truck load funkier too. As proved by this incendiary debut EP brought to you by Funkatech.

You might recognise his name from a previous Funkatech release: the talented French artist made his professional entrance with a remix of Specimen A’s ‘Slam Dunk’ last October. Now exclusively signed and primed for his first full-flavoured outing, Stoneway has prepared a journey from glitchy grit to spine-shuddering electro. And everyone’s invited.

We embark with the crutch-grabbing low-tempo swagger-fest ‘Talking Funk’. Comprising layers of textured, fractured basslines and all manner of colourful synth shrills, it doesn’t just talk funk. It sings it. In many different languages. Armed with a dreamy drop and high-impact production techniques, it stomps with a power that belies its sub 110 tempo.

Next up, ‘I’m Not A DJ’. Euphoric-but-ballsy, it instantly bombards us with oceanic synth blasts. If you’ve a tendency to thrust your lighter up, do it now – you won’t be disappointed. Dropping into the main groove, Stoneway then strips the vibe back to a bare stomp and off-beat bass concoction before building the entire track up again to a state of undiluted vibrancy. He might not be a DJ, but boy does Stoneway understand the dynamics of a DJing – this will cause commotions on every dancefloor that has the pleasure of hearing it.

‘Awkward Moments’ is the final stage of this journey. The audio equivalent of a triple espresso, there’s a hint of empowered musical militancy amidst the rainbow-synth patterns and hip-switching bass growls. Boasting yet another heavenly drop, and some subtle vocal appearances from MC Siri himself, ‘Awkward Moments’ is the perfect balance of peaktime electro power, mischievous funk and tongue in cheek fun.
