Razz-Ma-Tazz Records is proud to announce the release of the third Funk-O-Matic album. "SHINE" is a tour de force CD, packed with memorable, sure-fired, funky hits.
It brings the band and the record label great pleasure to introduce: ANGIE--Lead vocalist, song writer and Funk-O-Matic front woman extraordinaire. This fourteen song collection takes the listener on a journey through various genres--using the funk sound as a solid foundation for some far reaching experimentation in the art of stylistic fusion. You will hear ANGIE deliver her searing, soulful, vocal stylings over the funk and through the club beats, back to the R&B pocket and then jump into the straight-up, top-40 pop sound.
Get ready for a fresh taste of new funk--delivered with high energy vocals. Dig into that deep, synth bass vibe --combined with driving club beats that will make you want to move your body. Nearly two years in the making, SHINE also features the powerhouse funk talent of L.A. record producer/saxophonist Derrick Edmondson. D is no stranger to the pop/R&B music market--his skills are all turned up in the mix. His production, consulting and sax playing adds an amazing layer to the funk-o-matic wall of stereo sound.
ANGIE is a New York City based vocalist and stage actor who's amazing talent was discovered by Razz-Ma-tazz record producer (Clark Stevens) in a karaoke bar. Immediately after meeting, they started the intense collaborative song writing effort. After extensive travel between New York and L.A., and following two years of studio recording and mixing, this product is finished and promises the worldwide F-O-M fans that it all will have been worth the wait. "SHINE" CD's and downloads should be available on I-tunes and CD Baby in a few weeks. Stay tuned to this website for news and updates!
Fueled by an unforgettable greasy groove, Funk-O-Matic explores the unchartered, new frontiers of funk music--that which makes one want to uncontrollably shake and dance like never before. On their newest Long Playing CD entitled “SO TRUE,” producer/songwriter Clark Stevens takes the band to a higher level of unprecedented funkyness with party songs and club bangers that will light your fire—at the club, at home or just grooving in the car. But wait there’s more . . . this CD has two slow jams which some listeners have described as the core strength of the album. Funk-O-Matic knows how to produce the romantic vibe with finesse and original style. Enjoy the variety of beats, hooks and bass grooves combined with energetic, vibrant rapping by wordsmith M.C.Trees.
