Deep Dutch funk with a distinctly vintage sound. Raw, analog funk instrumentals, cinematic jazz funk and northern soul style vocal tracks make for an album that's as versatile as it's funky.

Album Notes
The title Funkstamatic was inspired by the band's favorite smartphone app Hipstamatic. At once 100% modern and very retro, it takes snapshots that look like they were made in the 1970s. In much the same way, the album is a collection of musical snapshots with a distinctly vintage sound. Raw, analog funk instrumentals likely to please the hiphop crowd, Herbie Hancock style cinematic jazz funk and northern soul style vocal tracks make for an album that's as versatile as it's funky.

Over two years in the making, Funkstamatic is a clear step forward from the rootsy beginnings of Euro Cinema's debut album "Ten-4!". Where that album was all about Blue Note style Hammond jazz, Funkstamatic is funkier and much more varied. One reason for the variation on the album is the different musical guests.

Susanne Alt plays flute and sax on The French Confusion and Der Alte. The latter is a version of a famous German Krimi soundtrack from the 70's - recorded with the blessing of legendary composer Peter Thomas himself. Ploctones sax player Efraïm Trujillo has been performing live with Euro Cinema with spectacular results, as can be heard on tracks like Ducktape (previously a Dutch Radio6 'Schijf van 6').

Other noteworthy tracks are Koekwaus, which appeared on BBC DJ Craig Charles' latest compilation album, and the vocal tracks featuring Sanne Monster (ex Laura Vane & the Vipertones). Add AIFF's irresistible Afro Cinema Remix of the title track to the equation and you have an album that makes good on Euro Cinema's tongue-in-cheek promise to listeners: we're gonna party like it's 1969!
