Granufunk album Release

Today granufunk aka Jacob Grain contacted me after he got back from London, His first record was officially released yesterday – pictures of the party will be available shortly! And don’t forget to read the other article about granufunk.



“GRANUFUNK’is an album of magnetic originality; a true case of opposites attracting. The minimalist, oft haunting calmness underlying each song is masterfully juxtaposed against the agitated rhythms and glitchy beats inherent in each track. While the seamless continuity lies in its stargazing melancholia and curious wisdom, ‘GRANUFUNK’ surprises at every opportunity, utilising discordant grinding beats, whispering bi-lingual lyrics (by guest vocalist Sonni Plankton),delicate programming, booming basslines, and spine-tingling melodies. Throughout, GRANUFUNK creates a unique ambience through a mixture of harsh scarred urban brokenbeat and earthy jazz. ‘GRANUFUNK’ is an album of rich, poignant material, with a potent lingering after effect.”
