    *From the forthcoming album "Chequered Thoughts" by Funkommunity

    ニュージーランドのアオテアロア出身のミュージシャン、そしてプロデューサーである<アイザック・アエズゥリー>と同じくニュージーランドで活動する女性シンガーソングライターでReclooseのアルバム「Perfect Timing」に収録の「Catch a Leaf feat.Rachel Fraser」で一気に国際的に知られる存在となったヴォーカリスト<レイチェル・フレイザー>によるフューチャー・ソウル・ユニット「Funkommuity(ファンコミュニティー)」。<アイザック・アエズゥリー>はトランペット奏者としても「Recloose Live Band」「OPENSOULS」「Eru Dangerspiel」などニュージーランドの良質なバンドをサポートするミュージシャンとしても活動、レイディー6やジュリアン・ダインなどの楽曲制作にも携わる等国内の音楽シーンにおいては不可欠な存在だ。またプロデューサーとしてもジャイルス・ピーターソン主宰のBrownswoodレーベルからリリースされたコンピレーション「Lefto & Simbad World Wide Family vol.1」に楽曲が収録されるなど現在注目を集めているインストゥルメンタル・ヒップホップユニット、Karimaxとしても活動する。<レイチェル・フレイザー>は先に述べた
    Reclooseの「Catch a Leaf feat.Rachel Fraser」で一気に国際的に知られる存在となったヴォーカリスト。MONKEY_sequence.19とコラボレーション(未発表楽曲)も果たし今後は日本国内に於いても更に注目されるであろうヴォーカリストの一人だ。

    Funkommunity's Isaac Aesili and Rachel Fraser are no strangers to the NZ Music Scene. Having played, toured and collaborated with some of the country's top artists, the prolific pair now join forces to create Chequered Thoughts, a forward-thinking album of future soul music.

    It's a collaboration that has been years in the making. Having first worked together on a song called 'I'm All In' from Isaac's debut solo album 'Eye See', Isaac and Rachel's powerful dynamic is finally realized in their debut release.

    An accomplished vocalist and songwriter, Rachel Fraser's voice is reminiscent of old school jazz, soul and funk styles infused with contemporary R&B. A lady of many credentials, Rachel first gained international attention with Recloose track, 'Catch a Leaf', and has since been busy performing with bands such as Sola Rosa and Recloose Live.

    Isaac also brings a string of credentials to the band. Over the past decade, Isaac has been an integral part of many Kiwi acts Solaa, Opensouls, Recloose Live and Eru Dangerspiel and has toured as a guest musician with iconic New Zealand bands Trinity Roots and Shapeshifter.

    He's also co-written songs with Aaradhna, Ladi6, Hollie Smith, Mara TK and Julien Dyne and his session work includes recording for House of Shem, Homebrew, Anika Moa, Mt Eden and Crowded House.

    Funkommunity's first single 'The Light' was recently licenced to EMI Italy. This track was included on a compilation called "Vibe" alongside other artists including Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Aloe Blacc, D'Angelo and Stevie Wonder.
